BT Sport Facilities Upgrade

January 28th, 2016

In August 2015, BT Sport launched 9 new channels including the first-ever Ultra HD channel, BT Sport Europe, BT Sport Showcase and six BT Sport Extra channels. 

Timeline Television, BT Sport’s managed services partner, has been a key part of developing the impressive  BT Sport’s Broadcast Centre system and facilities to allow for the simultaneous production of eight live games and the Goals show on Champion’s League match days. This has involved additional production control suites, edit suites, expanding the CAR to allow for twice the nearline media storage capacity, adding Ultra HD switching and monitoring facilities, and doubling EVS live record and playback channels. All of this during a busy summer, with BT Sport on air 24/7 with the original three channels, BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN on BT Sport!

BT Sport, in partnership with RT, NCAM, MOOV and Timeline Television has integrated innovative technology to bring exciting augmented reality graphics to a new level; including an elegant solution to deal with the delays inherent with augmented reality, which allows the director the flexibility to work in real time.
