As part of its role as the host broadcaster for this year’s Allianz Sailing World Championships, production company Sunset+Vine has revealed some of the technology it plans to employ.
The championships take place in The Hague, the Netherlands from August 10-20th 2023. It is the fourth consecutive occasion that Sunset+Vine has been awarded the quadrennial contract.
It is World Sailing’s biggest international event and a major qualifier for the Paris Olympics 2024, with more than 1,200 boats and 1,400 sailors expected to take part in ten Olympic and four Para events.
Sunset+Vine will work on five days of live coverage, and plans to use a helicopter, two drones, on board cameras, 3D tracking animations and an ‘Attack RIB’ unit – innovative technology that will provide live multicamera ‘straight to social’ coverage from a boat on the race track at sea.
Andrew Preece, executive director at Sunset+Vine, commented: “Creatively we have assembled a formidable team with some new faces both behind and in front of the camera. Our mission has been to provide reliable and authoritative coverage whilst introducing innovations that we think will make a real difference on screen be it broadcast or social.”
