For its coverage of Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final between Inter Milan and Manchester City, DAZN employed Plazamedia’s briX|woRk.studio in Ismaning to host the build-up to the match.
The broadcast employed Plazamedia’s German studio, which includes a 22m x 5m LED wall that was used to include guests at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul.
After the match, DAZN broadcast a half an hour of post-game coverage from the briX|woRk.studio.
All signals for the broadcast ran from Istanbul via Plazamedia’s broadcast centre where they were fed to the DAZN Production Room (PCR) area for the briX|woRk.studio, TV control rooms, central monitoring, highlight editing, post production, analytics graphics and archive, and from there it was distributed to viewers.
Speaking about the production, Michael Bracher, SVP production and editorial at DAZN-DACH said: “Every year, the final of the UEFA Champions League is the absolute highlight for all soccer fans and at the same time the conclusion of an exciting soccer season. That’s why it’s important to us at DAZN to offer all fans the highest quality and most impressive broadcast of the final possible. We are therefore very happy that, with briX|woRk.studio, we have a perfect environment to expand our live broadcast with an extensive and detailed studio show.”
Jens Friedrichs, chairman of the management board of Plazamedia GmbH added: “We are very pleased to be able to support our long-term partner DAZN in the realization of the UEFA Champions League Final 2023 with our new XR LED Studio, among other things. Our new briX|woRk.studio offers many possibilities to present sports coverage in a new look and feel. The studio can also be used for the production of other genres such as fiction, reportage or fashion shoots. We thank DAZN for the trust and the always good cooperation!”
