Finalists in the IBC Innovation Awards with BT Sport

June 7th, 2016



We are thrilled to be shortlisted with BT Sport for two IBC Innovation awards including Content Delivery and Content Creation alongside technical partners Ncam, MOOV TV RT Software Ltd.

Content Creation: “BT Sport wanted to add even more impact when it won the rights to cover European Champions League football, and added very sophisticated augmented reality elements to its studio coverage, including a signature shot flying over a map of Europe to the stadiums hosting each game. Working in a huge and largely black studio was a challenge for camera tracking company Ncam, who worked with Moov, RT Software and Timeline TV to create a solution.”

Content Delivery: “BT Sport has a second spot on the shortlist, this time for a delivery solution. In 2015 it launched BT Sport Ultra HD, and since then have produced a large number of sporting events in 4K, including football, rugby, MotoGP, squash and NBA basketball. The company worked with its outside broadcast partner Timeline Television to build Europe’s first Ultra HD 4K truck, including cameras from Sony and a SAM switcher.”
