Netherlands rental house Broadcast Rental used a combination of Cobham’s Solo7 Nano TX transmitters and Videosys Broadcast’s camera control technology to support coverage of the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards by Hilversum-based services provider, United.
This is the third year Broadcast Rental has supplied RF technology and expertise to support the MTV broadcast. This year’s event, held at the Mediolanum Forum in Assago, near Milan, Italy, on 25 October, included coverage red carpet and main stage award activities, captured using Cobham Solo7 Nano TX transmitters affixed to three Steadicam-mounted, Videosys-controlled Sony P1 cameras. An additional Cobham Solo7 Nano TX was attached to a bullet-cam deployed on a selfie-stick for use by attendees and artists alike.
United production operations manager Bolke Burnaby Lautier said, ‘MTV always likes to use lots of effect shots, which is where the roaming cameras came into play. They also like to provide the artists with something they can have fun with and contribute to the broadcast, which is where the selfie-stick was used. The reliable signal quality of the Solo7 Nano TX coupled with the Videosys controls, both provided by Broadcast Rental, enabled us to produce a high quality broadcast of a world class event.’
