Ski Worldcup Broadcast
USE CASE : SPORT EVENT BROADCASTING
Åre Ski World Championship 2019
USE CASE PREVIEW
With more than 700 million expected viewers worldwide, the FSI
and SVT (Sweden’s national public broadcaster) opted for a
brand new system of remote IP production. In total, More than
80 cameras feeds from the course were delivered to three
broadcast control rooms in Stockholm through two 100 Gbps
Objective: instantly providing spectators with the highest
quality pictures from all possible angles, including aerial views.
Airspace restrictions: During the entire show, the airspace
over Åre was subject to a strict restriction applying to all types
of aircrafts including model airplanes, paragliding or any UAVs.
Extreme temperatures: All attendees, participants and staff
had to face extreme weather conditions with temperatures
falling down to -20°C in the first week. This deteriorated
further with winter storms and strong winds in the second
week. Another big challenge to overcome was the restrictive
location of the site.
