This season’s UEFA Champions League and Europa League draws were produced remotely with the help of TVU Networks’ remote video solution.
UEFA appointed TVU Networks to provide a turnkey remote production solution, enabling some of the clubs featured in both draws to attend live from their respective home locations, as well as providing on-site technical and training support for the clubs and at UEFA headquarters in Geneva.
The remote production set-up included return audio feeds, mix minus feedback elimination for team member interviews, synchronised intercom communication for the camera operators at each site, and transmission with less than one second delay.
TVU Networks also provided turnkey packages to some of the clubs involved in the awards ceremony, these included a camera operator, technical and training support, TVU One mobile transmitters and the TVU Anywhere mobile broadcasting app for transmission redundancy. Live feeds from the remote locations were sent to Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) studio in Geneva for final production and broadcast. The clubs used TVU Partyline to receive video return of the live programme output in real-time (less than 100ms delay).
“We are thrilled with UEFA’s confidence in our remote production solution,” said Rafael Castillo, VP of Europe, TVU Networks. “UEFA has always been a technologically progressive organisation with the highest standards. Their UEFA Champions League draws are prestigious live events with a huge worldwide audience. There’s no room for error. The success of both events was a solid affirmation of our remote production technology.”
