Salford-based dock10 has revealed it is providing remote production facilities for the BBC’s World Cup coverage from Qatar, including a gallery, VT, editing, sub-mixing, production offices, off-tube commentary positions and transmission as well as operational support.
The BBC is airing 33 live matches on TV and iPlayer across the 28 days of the tournament, including the final group game between Wales and England on Tuesday, 29 November. Most of the games are available in ultra high definition and high dynamic range.
dock10 has previously served as the UK remote production centre for coverage of major events such as Euro 2020, the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022 and the World Athletics Championships.
Remote production helps broadcasters to produce live coverage of events in a more environmentally sustainable manner as only a small amount of equipment and fewer staff are required on-location.
“dock10 is delighted to be supporting BBC Sport’s coverage of the World Cup,” said dock10 studio manager Adam Broadhurst. “Remote production is now a proven and effective way for broadcasters to deliver live events, helping them to reduce their carbon footprint and to create content in a more sustainable, cost-effective, way.”
