Looking Ahead

By Ken Kerschbaumer Sports Video Group, Executive Director, Editorial

W

here is sports broadcasting headed? That is the underpinning question for SVG, whose goal as an industry association is to bring the industry together to debate the future, discover new approaches to production, and figure out how to meet an apparently insatiable craving for sports content. When SVG was launched in 2006, the biggest concern was the move to HD. In fact, many of the technologies that have changed the industry, including the iPhone, were not even a consideration. Predictions about where the industry would be in 2018 did not mention 4K, HDR, mobile apps, and OTT, because those things were not even things to be considered. As technology trends have emerged and disappeared in sports broadcasting, one thing has remained: the demand for live sports content. And those that have endured are moving the industry into an era when production teams are seeing every dollar stretched, along with every crewmember’s every waking moment. That double strain on finances and personnel is creating a need for more options to be available to event producers. For many events, trucks will always be the best option. Ditto for flypacks. And, yes, control rooms set in immovable concrete will increasingly become an option. In fact, more and more, the traditional “truck” companies at the center of this Yearbook describe themselves as production-services providers. Wheels, it seems, are optional. The evolution of technology, particularly fiber and IP transport, is opening up a new world of options and decisions. But, as we have seen with some of this year’s exciting developments, the options will be weighed against corporate cultures, ensuring a solid marriage between the needs of the production and the potential for cost savings. A quick side note: 12-Gbps transport at IBC 2018 in Amsterdam was anything but a sideshow. One of the buzziest topics in 2018 was the networks’ growing interest in producing more content with fewer people traveling and more operating from a centralized control room. Clearly, some areas of remote production benefit more from at-home workflows: for example, many of the smaller events that are the key revenue drivers for OTT services or sports-focused cable networks benefit greatly from the cost savings provided by new approaches to production. But major events benefit as well. During the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Fox Sports used control rooms in Los Angeles to produce shows from Red Square in Moscow, and Germany’s ARD and ZDF minimized their presence in Moscow with a team in Germany taking over a soundstage and building multiple control rooms and stages. The at-home model does provide some difficulties for events that have upwards of 20 cameras and have been produced onsite for years and years. Most important, the freelance crews descending on a major sports event typically arrive from various points around the country. Are top-level directors, producers, and others on the team willing to pack up and move so that they can be based in a central location with the rest of the crew? That question remains to be answered, but it is a big one and needs to be addressed if sports production undergoes a transformation in which crews produce events hundreds or thousands of miles from the venue. The 2019 Mobile Sports Production Yearbook is designed to lay out the debates, provide detailed insight into the new trucks that hit the road, and give you a chance to make the best choice for your production needs. Please let us know your thoughts on this year’s edition. See you on the road soon.

Mobile-Production Leaders Sound Off on Challenges, Opportunities Ahead for the Industry Compiled and edited by Jason Dachman and Kristian Hernandez

T

he mobile-production business is booming, with more live sports productions in 2018 than ever before. But truck providers face a host of challenges when it comes to nextgen technology and their bottom line. They are being asked to deliver more for less as clients look to trim production costs and explore new at-home–production workflows. In addition, technology continues to evolve at a breakneck pace; with the initial SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards officially published, IP-based infrastructure and production tools are becoming commonplace aboard trucks. These developments will lay the groundwork for the future — including the increasing number of 4K, HDR, and 1080p sports productions — but also require costly up-front investment. SVG sat down with a dozen industry leaders to discuss the current state of the business, the impact of the market’s continued consolidation, the greatest opportunities for growth, and where they see the business headed in the coming years. Here are the executives we spoke with:

Chad Snyder: Innovation is pushing more content production. Lyon Video has forecast business growth for the next 24 months.

Pat Sullivan: I consider the current state of our

industry to be quite transitional. We have pressure from customers to lower prices; we have pressure from customers to deliver high-quality engineering and equipment for less; and we have pressure to produce 1080p, 1080p HDR, 4K, and 4K HDR events — all of which require expensive equipment and extensive engineering time. [As a result], we will continue to have pressure to drop prices while delivering a good product.

Len Chase: The business is definitely changing drastically and very quickly. There is more content [being created] than ever before, and there are new and different opportunities constantly arising. But, at the same time, the traditional base [of customers] that we grew up with is evolving very quickly and changing day to day.

Philip Garvin: There is competition and innovation happening in the remote-production business, and that is a good thing. New technology offers opportunities while clients provide new challenges.

As at-home/REMI productions become more popular, what is the effect on your business? Carlyle: There has been no adverse effect on our busi-

Michael Harabin: From Gearhouse’s perspective, yes.

ness. REMI production appears to have plateaued and has remained consistent over the last three years for Dome.

Our flagship truck Columbus and other assets are busy. Specifically, for Columbus, there is increasing awareness in the market of its capabilities in both the sports and entertainment spaces.

Chase: The ripple effect is that it has changed the dynamics of the business. Not all good, but there are definitely new and different opportunities.

Glen Levine: The business is healthy, and it continues to evolve. We are committed to adapting to these changes with our valued partners.

Garvin: The current demand for at-home/REMI productions have had modest effect on our business, but there is a new version of at-home production coming that we are really excited about. In the future, we expect that there will be multiple approaches to live sports productions.

Mitch Rubenstein: I do consider it healthy because there is still a growing need to produce content at all levels. Onsite remote production will continue to be an important part of our business, and, as long as any company is able

Executive Perspectives

continued from page 22

Harabin: I’m not sure I judge the model to be “popular.” To me, popular means wide and deep deployment throughout a broadcaster’s schedule, and REMI is not there yet. I think the REMI model should enjoy wider adoption than it has. Entrenched technology is always difficult to displace; entrenched mindsets, even more so. The benefits of the model are numerous and tangible, yet REMIs are not the model of first choice. But they absolutely should be. With Gearhouse’s acquisition of Proshow, a leader in the REMI space, we have made a substantial commitment to the REMI production model. Levine: Since REMI has started, we have used scaledback mobile units to support clients. We will launch a second REMI unit in January. We are adapting to the change in the U.S. as we have around the world. Broadcast hubs may be a good solution for some clients that have the required non-overlapping volume.

Rubenstein: It’s minimal, as we continue to be a great alternative to at-home/REMI. The model we have created at Ross is time-tested for over five years at the network level. We constantly improve our onsite offerings to stay competitive. We have also done some of these types of [at-home] productions.

Snyder: REMI is good for our industry in that it allows

Garvin: Esports will be important, but it’s live sports/ events in general that offers potential for growth.

Harabin: The linear-TV distribution model is good, but it is constant. What is driving growth for the industry is the production required for content distribution on OTT platforms.

Levine: Yes, esports continues to be important to the NEP Group.

Rubenstein: Esports is a very important part of our

coverage for events that would not otherwise be financially sustainable. The overall diversity of mobile-unit type, design, and ability has grown. At-home productions have allowed Lyon Video to focus our investments toward high-quality image-creation units and lessen investments in some other areas.

business going forward. Ross MP and Ross as a whole invested heavily in esports, and it has paid off. On the mobile side, we supported over 30 major productions this year in full 1080p, and that number will increase in 2019. We converted all of our new FIN series trucks and flypacks to join RMP6 in providing 1080p, fiber-based offerings to the esports industry.

Sullivan: We will continue to service REMI productions

Sullivan: Esports, [college-]conference networks, and

to the best of our ability.

streaming entertainment for OTT will all be part of our business going forward.

In what other sector(s) do you see the biggest potential for growth? Specifically, do you see esports production as an important part of the business going forward?

What impact do you believe recent industry consolidation has had on the business? Do you think this trend of consolidation will continue?

Carlyle: Esports is a big part of our business, as Canada

Chase: I’m not sure how much more consolidation there

has just received two Overwatch teams. We expect to be working with Overwatch over the next two years. This part of the market relies on 1080p production, and we expect to see more activity and growth in this area.

Chase: I think esports is definitely a growing avenue in our business. I’m just not sure how large the impact is going to be on our side of the business. I think that [esports shows] are going to become more of a studio-type show versus using remote trucks. 26

can be, because I’m not sure how much is left to consolidate. I think that the impact has opened up some doors for some of the smaller companies to actually show how unique and how different they can be and how they can work for their clients versus a larger corporation. I do think that the consolidation has hurt the industry to some extent because it has [resulted in] more one-shoe-fits-all type of [solutions], and I don’t think that is the best way to serve our industry. As [for whether] the trend will continue, I think there are a few more [acquisitions] coming in the next year. continued on page 30

Garvin: Too much consolidation can limit our clients’ choices, but the trend will continue as long as companies are willing to pile on debt.

Levine: NEP’s growth has given us the ability to offer a wide range of services to clients in the U.S. and around the globe. Integrated solutions will continue to grow, as this builds efficiency in the compound and broadcast hubs, ultimately enhancing the final product and having a positive impact to the bottom line.

Rubenstein: I think consolidation has helped some and hurt others in the business. As long as your offerings are multifaceted and are needed in this industry, you’ll survive and maybe even grow. At Ross, we are always looking to see what’s coming next as far as need and what we can do best for our customers. Consolidation will never stop, because that’s a trend in all business.

Sullivan: Consolidation has been a part of our industry for 25 years. Consolidation and attrition will continue.

Has the explosion of OTT and livestreaming content opened up new business opportunities? Are your facilities working more streaming-only shows? And are more facilities being dedicated to streaming shows on large events like tennis Grand Slams, golf majors, etc.? Chase: We’re seeing a lot added on the OTT side. We’re doing linear broadcasts here in the States, but we may be feeding seven or eight different countries on the OTT side of the world. Whether it’s a back-bench element or in the B unit, you’ve got another small production team [dedicated exclusively] to OTT.

Garvin: There are more live events now with OTT [elements]. The biggest impact comes from events that have both telecast and streaming distribution.

Harabin: I feel this is the growth opportunity. Productions intended only for streaming are a relatively new and high-growth market, one where I believe Gearhouse is perfectly positioned and we have a very real advantage for our clients.

Levine: Yes, we see growth in secondary streaming feeds from the main broadcasts, and we have added a number of events for clients in which the main outlet is streaming.

Rubenstein: We have been fortunate to provide facili30

A major factor in Gearhouse Broadcast’s acquisition of Proshow Broadcast in 2018 was its desire to expand its at-home-production facilities — like Proshow’s Opus truck (shown here).

ties for some high-level OTT content. It has definitely been a plus for Ross MP, with more coming for us in the future.

Snyder: Event coverage for OTT has exploded the technical needs [of our clients] with multiple feeds being sent to multiple outlets. Streaming-only shows are common and creating demand for additional days and customized production.

Sullivan: Game Creek has done several events for OTT streaming, and I believe this will continue to be a growth area.

What technical challenges do you see as the most vexing for your engineering team? Chase: REMIs are more of a challenge and time-consuming for us. From an engineering standpoint, it is actually easier for us to do a full regular show with a full production team onsite than it is to do a REMI. A standard standalone football game is probably a 12- to 13-hour day. When we do a football REMI job, it’s a 17- to 18-hour day. Most of that goes into all the testing of the signals and everything else between [the remote and the broadcast center].

Garvin: The transition to fully IP systems is certainly a challenge for our engineers, but it also provides opportunities for improvement of our mobile units. Luckily, we have the right people and manufacturer relationships to properly think it through and execute.

Harabin: Gearhouse has an amazing engineering team. Their motivation and dedication are appreciated by our clients on every job we do. The biggest challenge management and engineering face collectively is leaving the world of “TV” behind and embracing IP, IT, and networking. An AWS or Cisco certification is becoming an almost indispensable qualification for a remote-production engineer.

Levine: Challenges will always be keeping up with the constant technology changes and the timing of when we make our investments. With NEP’s engineering teams working together, I’m confident we can overcome anything. continued on page 34

Rubenstein: As technical challenges arise, we continue to try and invest into solutions to make things easier for our engineering team. We have revamped our video- and audio-transport methods and invested heavily into fiber-based systems to handle the increasing number of feeds and signals our shows require. We continue to work with our Ross product teams and partners to come up with solutions to innovate.

Snyder: The most vexing challenge is keeping all of our engineering team up-to-date on standards, regulation, and software changes.

Outside of technological challenges, what are your biggest commercial (or government-regulation–related) concerns today? Carlyle: We continue to face challenges and adoption based on government regulations related to items such as driver-log technology (electronic logging), road and weight restrictions, and higher standards of safety and reporting — all of which are better industry standards for us in the end.

Chase: The FCC continues to take frequencies away from us, which is a constant battle for what we need to do with wireless frequencies. Also, drivers’ ELDs [electronic logging devices] don’t fit into our business well and [often result in] extra hours logged for drivers even if the truck is just sitting for 14 hours and not going anywhere.

Harabin: Ensuring that our staff and our customers are well and thriving is a priority. Beyond that, virtualization of production services and getting systems properly integrated and able to communicate with each other to improve efficacy and efficiency occupy a lot of our “thinking” time.

Levine: We must always stay on top of managing costs. Working as partners with our clients allows us to look for cost-efficient solutions; working together helps to keep the business sustainable.

Snyder: Rising interest rates may send our industry into a consolidation spree if the trend of increasing rates continues.

What about the biggest opportunities for growth and future success? Carlyle: Widespread adoption for 4K and IP will take longer than the adoption from SD to HD, but the direction is clear that these will be the platforms of the future. We know 4K and HDR are advancing, and we are ready. We continue to produce and support productions in 4K, HDR, and multichannel sound. We do not see mobiles as a dying art. 34

MOBILE SPORTS PRODUCTION YEARBOOK 2019

Dome Productions has grown its fleet of 4K production trucks to three — including Vista (shown here) — in order to be ready for a potential windfall of 4K and HDR business in the future.

Chase: I think there’s going to be more and more specialty trucks: vehicles or units that cater to a certain type of broadcast or broadcaster or special vehicles that just deal with streaming. But, at the same time, I also see that the larger productions on the professional side of the world are also looking at new avenues and new directions to keep their product current and cutting-edge, which means larger shows as well. Smaller seems to be where everybody wants to go, but, at the same time, we’ve seen shows that have started small grow tremendously within a short period of time when they start to realize what they can do with the tools available to them.

Garvin: We are eagerly testing and proving new ways to produce live video. We are now able to provide ultimate flexibility and efficiency, but production is still a creative art, so just because we can doesn’t mean we should. We avoid calling ourselves a “truck business”: we’re in the live-event/sports-production–services business offering our clients solutions, including mobile units with advanced technologies. We can expect clients to ask us for different production systems from one day to the next — often on the same mobile unit. We have to be flexible and move quickly. And we have to have access to plenty of capital to acquire the equipment clients request.

Harabin: We are trying to see around corners and gauge what our clients are working towards and may need in the future. Being prepared to meet those demands when they manifest themselves is something Gearhouse is always working on, and I truly believe Gearhouse is one of, if not the, most nimble, responsive, and forward-thinking vendors in the market today. I think that makes Gearhouse unique. continued on page 38

Executive Perspectives

continued from page 34 Levine: Our industry is about technical solutions, innovation, and the teams that manage it. Our commitment to the NEP apprentice program and growth of the broadcast professional will be a big part of future success.

Rubenstein: Trucks these days need to be Swiss army knives: capable at all levels, can set up fast, and be effective on many types of shows. Our company will continue to grow in parts of the industry that need high-level production support in a more affordable model. Esports will present the opportunity for us to grow globally. Here in the U.S., we’ll continue to succeed as we scale up, adding more high-level trucks like RMP6 to our innovative offerings.

Snyder: 5G data transmission will change what is possible in our business with low-cost data transmission.

The SMPTE ST 2110 standard has arrived, and many vendors are now adopting it into their product development. What does this mean to you and your team? Mike Johnson: On IP support, we are seeing more

How quickly are you moving away from baseband infrastructure toward IP-based workflows? If you were launching a truck today, would you build it around an IP router or an SDI router? Taubman: We did IP [on our three IP-based trucks] because it was necessary to overcome the size of the shows [such as the U.S. Open] they were going to work. We have some projects that don’t require that kind of size, so we’re trying to decide if 2110 is the right choice for any infrastructure regardless of size. Also, there is still a premium to be paid for IP [equipment]. We’re having to weigh whether the longevity is worth the initial buy-in since we’re trying to get 10 years of life out of these trucks. The other problem we have with full IP infrastructure is that every piece of hardware that we own has SDI on the back of it, so we need to implement an architecture that supports our legacy devices. For the time being, we’re going to support all those legacy devices even in a brand-new build.

Turk: We look at every project with what is best for our client and the needs of the project. Most projects will have an IP infrastructure, but some make more sense to use crosspointbased SDI. I expect most to be IP going forward.

solutions from manufacturers, but not everything is being answered and addressed as yet, and we look forward to more widespread adoption in the 2110 space along with [AMWA specifications] IS-04 [for NMOS Discovery and Registration] and IS-05 [for NMOS Device Connection Management].

Jason Taubman: Yes, we’re seeing vendors come to us with 2110-based products, including Grass Valley, Sony, EVS — basically from everybody. We have some other vendors who are challenging some of the incumbents in the infrastructure space. And we’re reviewing everything to make the best possible decisions going forward. We plan on switching our three [IP-based] trucks — Encore, 79, and Yogi — to 2110 from ASPEN very shortly to take advantage of what 2110 has to offer.

Dan Turk: SMPTE ST 2110 has been adopted by many manufacturers, but the control side is still lacking. If you want to use multiple vendors for a native 2110 router, there are still many work-arounds to make the system work as a router does now. We are very close, but it still needs some work on the control side and the audio.

Peter Wehner: We are pleased to see that SMPTE ST 2110 is being adopted with most of the equipment we use. This will allow us to transition to a full IP infrastructure quicker instead of needing to use gateways to convert to and from SDI. The more equipment that supports SMPTE ST 2110 also simplifies the design aspect for us.

Yogi (shown here) is one of three IP-based mobile units in Game Creek’s fleet along with Encore and 79.

Wehner: IP-based workflows are something we have been exploring for several years. It has not made sense for us up to build an “IP truck” mainly due to the lack of a full end-to-end IP solution. This has rapidly changed in the past few months, so any future trucks will likely have an IP aspect.

The 2018 IBC Show saw an influx of 12-Gbps SDI-capable gear. What are your thoughts on 12 Gbps? Taubman: It doesn’t really make sense for us right now, at least not in SDI. We still don’t have a way to implement

Taubman: Our IP infrastructures for video and audio

12G at scale unless you build it as a standalone 12G infrastructure, meaning you have to buy a 12G router and 12G switchers. Until someone comes to me and says, “I need a 4K truck with 12G, and that’s all it’s ever going to do,” 12G still doesn’t make sense. I think IP will solve that problem for us because it provides a single-wire solution for 12G.

transport aren’t currently connected to anything else, so we aren’t vulnerable in that sense. That said, we still have the same concerns in respect to command and control, which we take extra care to protect. We have always been very careful to limit our exposure on the IP front in terms of where the broader internet touches our infrastructure and how it’s possible to get into our systems. We’re working to make recommendations to the industry in regard to best practices for security.

Turk: In the U.S., 12-Gbps makes sense only if you are doing 4K. We do not have many requests for 4K, so we are not looking at this technology. However, that could change as the technology [requirements] change for our clients.

Wehner: I believe that 12G SDI will play an important role for the foreseeable future. There is an advantage to being able to send a UHD or four 3G video signals a short distance using coax, which can be easily maintained vs. fiber. The ease of use will be its main advantage.

How is your engineering team dealing with the need to understand IP as well as baseband workflows? Johnson: IP education takes place through courses and sessions in addition to exposure and practical experience in using IP facilities. We are currently operating IP facilities based on a 2110 environment, and the opportunity to advance knowledge is effective with this environment.

Turk: We take this very seriously and design every facility with that in mind. We have also worked with the networks to come up with best practices to help secure the network on all our facilities.

Are you planning for the potential rise of 4K and HDR? If so, how? What are the primary technical challenges related to 4K HDR production, and what pieces of equipment must be upgraded in order to serve these shows? Johnson: We continue to work with 4K HDR and continue to practice and evolve 4K HDR solutions. It has become a part of our day-to-day routine.

Taubman: When we design these things, we’re learn-

ing right along with everyone else. An entire staff doesn’t need to be up-to-speed with IP, so we have a few groups of people that run our IP trucks. We have to keep those people together because they’re right on the bleeding edge of everything that’s going on. We also make sure to sit down with our vendor partners and go through the whole system, so we can understand how it all comes together.

Turk: We have invested in our workforce by developing an IP class that we are getting our engineers through. We also have a network engineer on staff to help deal with all network issues and designs.

Wehner: Training our engineers to operate and troubleshoot in the IP world will be key. We are trying to give them a basic understanding of how IP works, then build on that for IP video and audio. Our engineers already deal with a complex IP-based control network so we can use that as a base of knowledge and continue to educate our engineers with assistance from the manufacturers.

As IP networks become more commonplace at truck compounds, is cybersecurity more of a concern? How are you addressing the issue of compound security in an IP age? 42

MOBILE SPORTS PRODUCTION YEARBOOK 2019

Mobile TV Group launched its first 4K truck — 38 FLEX — in 2015 and has since added another to its fleet in 39 FLEX.

Taubman: We’re absolutely keeping that in mind. The 4K space hasn’t really changed much from our point of view; we’ve been doing largely the same things for the past two years, so it’s good news that we’re maintaining our foothold in 4K. We were asked to add HDR on top of 4K for MLB Network this year and have done a couple of other HDR experiments. But, as of this moment, we’re not seeing a whole lot of uptake in HDR. But we’re ready to do it. The continued on page 46

continued from page 42 HDR workflow is still in the very early days. The temptation originally was to treat it like a 4K show with up/down/ crossconversion, but it turns out that there’s a lot more to it than that. We’re doing HDR today, and we’re keeping an eye on it to make sure we have HDR capability everywhere we need it.

Turk: We do many shows with 4K or HDR. The largest change is the servers and codec available to support 1080p HDR.

Wehner: 4K and HDR have been on our radar for some time since we built our purpose-built 4K HDR truck almost three years ago. We have taken the experience and incorporated HDR in every truck since then. The primary technical challenge is the SDR/HDR conversion, which has gotten significantly better in the last three years. We have upgraded this equipment several times, which mostly consists of frame synchronizers and up/down/crossconverters.

Have you seen increased interest in at-home production? If so, how are you adapting your facilities to meet these new market demands? What are the primary technical challenges for at-home shows?

Johnson: Evolution and advances for compression technology and access to bandwidth makes for many opportunities on the at-home/REMI solution, and Dome is active in supporting this area with our own managed fiber network and production facilities.

Taubman: We have been revisiting our B-unit designs and edit trucks and making those trucks more REMIcapable out of the box. We are trying to anticipate what REMI folks will need and tailor our B units to those needs. Most of our B units have now been adjusted to be cameraacquisition trucks in the REMI space when they are called upon to serve in that capacity.

Fox Sports is producing Thursday Night Football in 60p this season using Game Creek Video’s Encore unit.

Turk: This is an ever-growing conversation with many clients. We have experience with this all over the world and are using our experience to help design and engineer the best solution for every client.

Is there a specific technology (or technologies) that clients are demanding more these days? Taubman: We’ve been doing a lot of 60p, especially for Fox Sports. For example, Thursday Night Football with Encore is being produced totally in 60p, and NFL Network utilizes that 60p product. 60p is looking like it’s starting to take off, and it may even take over 4K in terms of the next big thing. Almost everybody is equipped to do 60p, so it’s not such a big stretch to get it done. And adding HDR on top of that is not that much more difficult. I think the transition to 60p is going to happen faster than the transition to 4K.

Turk: In almost every conversation with clients, HDR comes up. Many are looking to take the HDR step first. Most new facilities are being built 1080p- and HDRready.

ROAD 2018 IN REVIEW S R O I R R WA

2018 was one of the most eventful years for sports production in recent memory, with the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics and 2018 FIFA World Cup capturing the nation’s attention over the summer and annual events like the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Super Bowl, NFL Draft, and others breaking production records and test-driving new technologies and workflows. As if there weren’t enough going on stateside, this year’s Road Warriors features an expanded look at what went on across the Atlantic. Here’s a look at some of the sports-production highlights from the past year.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME MERCEDES-BENZ STADIUM, ATLANTA JAN 8 he CFP National Championship Game on ESPN featured the T biggest production ever for a bowl game, thanks to the use of 125 cameras (between game, studio, and MegaCast coverage) and a game

production coming out of nine Game Creek Video remote-production units. Camera and audio developments brought the viewer closer than ever to Alabama’s come-from-behind OT victory over Georgia. “The personal highlight is seeing it all come together,” said John LaChance, director, remote production operations, ESPN, during the lead-up to the massive effort, which capped the 2017 college-football season. “To see the new angles, perspectives, and gadgets we are introducing and watch those get integrated from paper to plan to [execution] gives us a great sense of pride. And it’s a partnership between those technicians, vendors, and production personnel.” A new element in the production was a small RF camera that 3G Wireless installed in each of the four down markers on each side of the field. It had been tested at the Celebration Bowl and the Sugar Bowl. “The cameras are on the top side of the first-and-10 markers and will offer viewers angles they have not seen in the past,” LaChance explained. “It’s a perspective right from the sideline, and they can see whether a player made the first down.” Also new were two hat cams: cameras mounted in the caps of two of the folks who moved the chains up and down the field. According to LaChance, the cameras did not require bodypacks, making them lighter and less obtrusive when worn by officials on the move. The eight pylon cams also got a lift, with a microphone placed in each pylon at the corners of the end zones. They offered a total of 28 angles of video coverage. The specialty cameras complemented the 51 other cameras deployed for game coverage, primarily a mix of Sony HDC-4300,

HDC-2500, and HDC-4800 cameras coupled with Canon lenses, including two 95X super-telephotos. Nine Game Creek mobile production units and support vehicles were onsite: Peacock A and B at the core of the game production, Nitro A and B handling GameDay and SportsCenter needs, Maverick overseeing the MegaCast, Webby on hand for the SEC Network, and Edit 2 and 3 supporting the game and MegaCast. BSI was onsite for RF needs (13 cameras), and PSSI provided satellite-uplink facilities. LaChance expressed his pride in the work done by everyone involved in getting the production facilities up and running in five days. “I think we had a great season for ESPN and the games that aired on ABC,” he said. “We had some great finishes, and to be around college football when you are a college-football fan makes the season fly by. But it was a great season, and that is testament to some great technicians, staff, personnel, and vendors who made it come together and great for the folks at home.” — Ken Kerschbaumer and Brandon Costa

ESPN deployed 125 cameras to capture the CFP National Championship action at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

SUPER BOWL LII U.S. BANK STADIUM, MINNEAPOLIS FEB 4 year, the Super Bowl broadcaster looks to up the techESuperach nological ante at America’s highest-profile sports event. For Bowl LII, to put it simply, NBC’s overall presence in the

Twin Cities was mind-blowing. And not to be forgotten: just five days after the Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl title in franchise history, the Peacock embarked on an even largerscale production in Korea with the Opening Ceremony at the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. “This has been 2½ years of planning, and we have meticulously walked through every aspect technically and operationally,” said Ken Goss, SVP, remote operations and production planning, NBC Sports Group, prior to the game. In terms of the game production, camera levels were (not surprisingly) at an all-time high. The 73-camera complement (featuring primarily Canon lenses) included 20 miniature cameras for the Admiral Video PylonCam system added to a bevy of 4K and high-speed systems: four Sony HDC-4800 4K

robos, three HDC-4300s in 4K mode, four HDC-4300’s running at 4X slo-mo, another seven HDC-4300s running at 6X slo-mo, and two more HDC-4300s at 8X slo-mo. NBC once again deployed two Skycam systems — a low and a high — as it did for selected games in the second half of the season on Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. The camera complement also comprised nearly a dozen robos (provided by Fletcher), including a pair of new positions: an HDC-4800 overlooking the entirety of each end zone to capture close plays along the side or back lines. With 14 mobile units onsite, NBC Sports was forced to expand its compound beyond the loading-dock area inside U.S. Bank Stadium. Although this is the norm at any Super Bowl, the potential subzero temperatures of a Minneapolis February made an outdoor compound unviable. Therefore, NBC erected a massive climate-controlled tent just outside the stadium to house the overflow trucks. Inside the primary compound, NEP’s ND1 (A, B, C, and D units) housed the main game production, accompanied by ND4 (A and B) for tape release and additional camera/ replay sources. The pregame studio show’s mobile unit, ND7 A and B, was also in the compound. Because there was no room for a full truck, for transmission and distribution management, NBC worked with NEP to build an ESU flypack, which was also located in the compound. — Jason Dachman and BC Inside NEP ND1’s A unit, which served as the core of NBC’s Super Bowl LII game production in Minneapolis.

NBA ALL-STAR GAME STAPLES CENTER, LOS ANGELES FEB 18

BA All-Star festivities once again served as a showcase for N Turner Sports’ tech-savvy production efforts on the hardcourt. Included in Turner’s bag of tech toys were an RF pylon

cam on the Skills Challenge, shot-tracking technology for the Three-Point Contest, and an even more intricate ecosystem inside its already massive truck compound. “NBA All-Star really shows what we can do,” said Chris Brown, senior director, technical operations, Turner Sports, said during the weekend. “We definitely have a few cool new [production tools] here, but, in terms of the compound, we try not to mess with the secret sauce. We’ve found a [workflow] that works really well for us, so we are just trying to build on that each year. It’s a lot of fun.” The raucous atmosphere of All-Star Saturday Night tipped off with the Skills Challenge, and fans had a new perspective on the three-round, obstacle-course competition, in which the players dribbled down the sidelines, weaving in and out of pylons. Turner worked with AVS to deploy an RF system featuring a GoPro/ Vislink Herocast miniature camera sitting atop two of the pylons. The pylon cam was just one of a whopping 48 cameras deployed by Turner during the weekend for the All-Star Game, All-Star Saturday Night, Inside the NBA studio sets, and NBA on TNT Road Show concerts throughout the weekend. Also among them were two additional RF cameras (also from AVS) and six robos (from Fletcher). Turner’s truck compound was located at the top of the steps of the L.A. Convention Center and comprised 13 total mobile units, which arrived on Feb. 8 — more than a week before All-Star Turner Sports took over the Staples Center and LA Live in February.

Weekend. NEP’s ND1 (A, B, C, and D) was once again at the core of the compound, serving as the audio- and video-routing/distribution center for the entire show. ND1’s B unit served as the primary distribution point for the entire compound. All camera and audio feeds were fed into ND1 for distribution to the various trucks in the compound. Thanks to ND1’s robust fiber connectivity, the A, C, and D trucks were also able to serve as signal-distribution points for other trucks, shortening the length of cable runs throughout the compound. In addition, Turner used ND1 for a variety of other needs, including submixing in the B unit’s audio room and transforming the C unit’s EVS replay area into “edit central” to handle its extensive file-based workflows. In addition to ND1, NEP’s SS24 (A, B, and C) and NCP10 (A and B) were onsite. Throughout the weekend, NCP11 served as home to the Inside the NBA onsite studio show. SS16 and ATU handled the entertainment and halftime-show elements, and Cobalt handled the Turner-Intel virtual-reality production. — JD

2018 PYEONGCHANG OLYMPICS SOUTH KOREA FEB 9-25 he athletes weren’t the only ones who put in months of T training and preparation ahead of the Winter Olympics. NBC Olympics took its pre-Games preparation to a whole new

level, testing and retesting nearly every technical system at its broadcast-production facility in Stamford, CT, prior to their use at the 2018 PyeongChang Games. “Things are going really well, and it has been a good setup, better than the past three or four Games,” said Dave Mazza, SVP/CTO, NBC Sports Group and NBC Olympics, during the Games. “Our team has been awesome, and, while we had a few snags with people getting sick, fortunately, everyone is doing well now.” He credited a few things for NBC’s being ahead of where it usually is at that stage of preparation. Olympic Broadcast Services (OBS) and the PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (POCOG) took construction of the International Broadcast Center (IBC), venues, and facilities to a new level of readiness, especially compared with recent Games. The 2016 and 2014 Olympics in Rio and Sochi, respectively, were plagued with construction delays, equipment shortages for things like outlets and power, transportation issues, and more. That was not the case in PyeongChang. “The Koreans understand technology,” Mazza noted. “They also do a nice job with construction. And they don’t do anything halfway. At times, we had to tell them, ‘Hey, guys, this is just a temporary setup’ while they were welding something that was designed to last forever.” This was also the second Games for which OBS had disassembled the previous IBC building, packed it into more than 300 shipping containers, and rebuilt it at the new location.

“All of the panels, columns, and electrical systems were up when we got here. It was a godsend because it took all of the variables out of the equation,” Mazza explained. “Our space was clean, ready to run cables, and the power was good. And, so far, the telco connections have been without incident. Both OBS and the KOBOC have done an excellent job of getting everything ready.” While OBS and the South Koreans were busy getting the venues and the IBC ready to go, the NBC Olympics team in Stamford was spending months making sure the IBC systems were tested and retested to ensure that they would be ready for the massive workload. In terms of the technology and the production, the team made a lot of changes on the venue side of operations and a bunch of small tweaks to the IBC operations. “On the venue side, we took what we have been doing with the at-home efforts in the States and applied it to the venues,” Mazza said. “So we are doing some significant at-home productions in the IBC and also back in the States.” NBC’s NEWBERT flypack was deployed for hockey coverage from the smaller hockey arena and the Closing Ceremony. The NEWBERT system is contained in six flight cases and includes a good-size Evertz EMR 64 router. The flypack also houses a Lawo-based audio core, a small intercom system, and an EVS replay unit. An AT&T Media Links frame sent 36 feeds from the Closing Ceremony to Control Room X in Stamford through a 10-Gbps link. The alpine events also made use of some remote connectivity. The core NBC production-truck facilities, provided by Game Creek Video, were located at the speed hill and connected to an eight-camera flypack and a routing switcher located at the technical-skiing venue, where the slalom events were held. Located an hour apart, the production team at the speed hill were able to cut the technical-skiing show, thanks to a 10-Gbps circuit that delivered eight camera feeds and 20-24 split feeds from the host production. — KK and BC

NCAA MEN’S BASKETBALL FINAL FOUR ALAMODOME, SAN ANTONIO MAR 31 – APR 2 n Year 8 of the March Madness partnership between CBS Idome Sports and Turner Sports, Final Four operations at the Alamoran more smoothly than ever. The most notable change

came in the form of a major presence by Game Creek Video. Five mobile units, four supporting the main game production in some capacity, anchored the compound. The new 79, which had debuted just six weeks before, served as host to the main production on TBS. “The whole IP routing infrastructure [of 79] is exciting,” said Chris Brown, director, technical operations, Turner Sports, prior to the event. “It changes the workflow a little bit, not drastically. It also makes things like distribution easier. So it’s a great addition to what we have been doing.”

According to Brown, the refreshed IP backbone helped expand the compound’s capabilities and reduce its footprint. What may have taken four or five trucks in previous years was down to three. NEP also had a robust collection of mobile units onsite, supporting both the TeamCasts and other needs. Chromium was home to TBS’s pre/postgame and halftime onsite studio coverage. Inside the Alamodome were 54 cameras covering action for the main game, supplementing the TeamCasts (which returned for the production), and shooting the onsite studio set positioned at the south end of the arena. Five cameras at Turner’s special set on San Antonio’s iconic River Walk brought the total deployed to 59. Back in the mix were SkyCam Wildcat, a collection of Sony HDC4300 high-speed cameras, Bexel’s Clarity 800 camera (which, for the second year, was positioned at the base of the basket stanchions), and the popular Rail Cam system. The move to Game Creek Video trucks supporting the main game broadcast also delivered a shot in the arm on the lens front. Canon was out in full force, including CJ12x4.3B lenses on the robotic units atop each backboard. The Rail Cam featured a Canon HJ15x8.5B KRSE-V image-stabilized HD lens, and a pair of pedestal cams boasted DIGISUPER 95 Super Telephotos. — BC

NFL DRAFT AT&T STADIUM, ARLINGTON, TX APR 26-28

62

Fox Sports also joining the party. With the Draft located in an NFL stadium for the first time and NFL Network’s early-round coverage simulcast on Fox (marking the Draft’s first appearance on broadcast television), NFL Media rolled out its largest Draft production to date at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. “We truly have an open canvas [at AT&T Stadium], as opposed to other locations — like Radio City [Music Hall], Chicago, and Philadelphia — which were all great but had their limitations in terms of space,” said Dave Shaw, VP, production, NFL Media, prior to the event. “We’ve got a lot more room to work with here both inside and outside, which makes the setup easier, and we have a much bigger set than in the past.” Although NFL Network and Fox Sports coverage was co-branded and the on-air talent combined, NFL Media oversaw the entire production in Arlington. For the second consecutive year, NFL Media rolled out Game Creek Video’s Encore (A, B, and C units) to handle NFL Network’s growing Draft production. It served NFL Network’s two primary sets: the interior set inside AT&T Stadium and the exterior one at the NFL Fan Experience. Game Creek Video’s Pride A and B units were also on hand in the overflow compound outside the stadium, producing Good Morning Football each morning and NFL Network’s Red Carpet Special prior to the start of the Draft on Thursday. NFL Network’s camera complement

also continued to grow. The network deployed 32 of its own cameras in Arlington and also took 12 feeds from ESPN. ESPN’s coverage featured first dual-network coverage of Round 1, with primary coverage airing on ESPN and a College GameDay alternate broadcast on ESPN2 — both of which had on-site sets at AT&T Stadium. As a result, ESPN rolled out its largest NFL Draft production to date, complete with several innovations, including a DigiBoom gimbal-stabilized camera rig. Although the primary show was produced out of NEP EN1 (A, B, C, D, and E units) and GameDay operated independently out of its normal Game Creek Video Maverick unit, the two shows were still heavily intertwined. “This is really a massive show. I don’t think people realize just how big the Draft really is,” said Senior Ops Manager Steve Carter. “There are always new concepts, ideas, and things that the NFL is looking to do, and then we build out the show from there. It’s a huge challenge, but it’s also very exciting.” — JD

PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP TPC SAWGRASS, PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL MAY 10-13

ith the Players Championship always played at TPC SawW grass in Ponte Vedra, FL, NBC Sports and the PGA have refined operations over the years, and the improvements contin-

ued to be evident. “We know the people, and the working relationships are great,” explained Allison McAllister, director, golf operations, NBC Sports. “Because of that, we just know the ins and outs of the course.” The biggest improvement to on-course operations for this edition was that there were no longer cable ramps on the course:

a lot of effort was put into cutting cable-access paths so that all cables could be buried. In the past, upwards of 40 cable ramps would be on the course, but now the 42 miles’ worth of 12-strand cable were out of sight, an important step for an event that is determined to close the gap with The Masters. At the core of NBC’s coverage were 62 cameras, including 34 wired hard cameras, 13 wired handhelds (including a jib), four wireless RF mini cameras, three tee-box robos, a POV bunker cam on the 17th hole, one robotic camera in the scoring cabin, three small sub-tower robos, an Inertia Unlimited X-Mo, and a FlyCam between the 16th and 17th holes. Golf Channel and NBC Sports delivered 90 hours of live programming surrounding the event, and the most notable evolution in its coverage continued to be the rollout of Trackman and Toptracer systems that allow balls to be tracked as they fly. NEP’s ND4/Double Eagle was the main production truck, with SS24 handling the additional camera and replay resources required for the larger golf tournaments. Also on hand were NEP ESU and ND7, producing Live From, which used 13 dedicated cameras, and Launchpad for DirecTV, focused on the 14th hole. CP Communications’ HD11 unit oversaw RF demands. “NEP does a tremendous job for us engineering-wise,” said Ken Goss, SVP, remote operations and production planning, NBC Sports. “We continue to be very happy with their facilities, and the R&D and support we get from them on the other golf tournaments and events really pay off for these bigger shows. We just had the Kentucky Derby and then right to here, so we’re off to a successful start to our championship season, and it’s because of our partnership with NEP.”— KK From left: Allison McAllister, joined by Amanda Short, senior production manager, Golf Channel; and Kristin Xippolitos, senior director, operations, Golf Channel

U.S. OPEN SHINNECOCK HILLS GOLF CLUB, SHINNECOCK HILLS, NY JUN 14-17

he 2018 U.S. Open from Shinnecock Hills Golf Club gave the T Fox Sports team challenges in production planning that led to innovations, the opportunity to refresh old workflows and core infra-

structure, and a chance to chart some new directions for golf coverage. Game Creek Video’s Encore production unit was at the center of the coverage for Fox and FS1, with Game Creek Pride handling RF-video control and submix and providing a backup emergency control room. Pride’s B unit handled production control for one of the featured groups, Edit 4 supported all iso audio mixes, and Edit 2 was home to five edit bays with equipment and support provided by Creative Mobile Solutions Inc. (CMSI). And there was also the 4K HDR show, which was produced out of Game Creek Maverick. “All the Sony HDC-4300 cameras on the seventh through 18th greens are 4K HDR-native with a secondary output at 720p SDR,” said Brad Cheney, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports, during the tournament. There were also six Sony PXWZ450’s for the featured holes and featured groups, the output of two of them delivered via 5G wireless. In terms of numbers, Fox Sports had 474 technicians onsite, making use of 38 miles of 24-strand fiber-optic cable to produce the event captured by 106 cameras (including 21 wireless 1080p, The front-bench area in Game Creek Video’s Encore truck was at the center of Fox Sports’ U.S. Open coverage.

21 4K HDR units, six 4K HDR wireless units, three Inertia Unlimited X-Mo cameras shooting at 8,000 fps, a Sony HDC4800 at 960 fps, and three Sony HDC-4300’s at 360 fps), and 218 microphones. Tons of data was passed around: 3 Gbps of internet data was managed, along with 83 Gbps of broadcast data, 144 TB of real-time storage, and 512 TB of nearline storage. Each course provides its unique challenges. At Shinnecock Hills, they included the roads running through the course, not to mention the hilly terrain, which also had plenty of deep fescue. But, from a production standpoint, the biggest issue was the small space available for the compound. One big step taken in preparation for the 2018 events was that the IP router in Encore was rebuilt from scratch. RF wireless coverage was provided by CP Communications. There were 26 wireless cameras on the course, along with 18 wireless parabolic mics and nine wireless mics for on-course talent. CP Communications also provided all the fiber on the course. — KK

FIFA WORLD CUP RUSSIA JUN 14 – JUL 15

since launching in the early 1990s under the charismatic direcEupvertion of President David Hill, Fox Sports has made a habit of shaking and disrupting the sports-media business in the U.S. You could say

it’s in their DNA. That tradition continued when, for the first time in network history, Fox Sports carried live English-language coverage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup for audiences in the U.S. Fox Sports rolled out an impressive production effort in Moscow and around the globe, broadcasting every match live across Fox, FS1, and Fox Sports Go. And, although the tournament itself lasted only a month, the effort, which involved the entire Fox Sports family, was years in the making. The core World Cup efforts were centralized in Moscow, with Fox Sports teams at the IBC and the main studio at Red Square. But that was just the beginning: there were talent and technicians at each of the venues, as well as a large team in Los Angeles handling match control, editing, and other duties. The key was to leverage the work done by FIFA and HBS to provide comprehensive match coverage, technical infrastructure, and production services. “At the end of the day, I think the product Fox Sports has put on with the help of HBS has been fantastic and second to none,” said Kevin Callahan, VP, World Cup operations, Fox Sports, during the event. “And that’s what it should be.” At the center of the IBC operations was a production-control room that was focused on match coverage and prepped the signal before it was sent to Los Angeles, where the mastercontrol team readied it for delivery to viewers. An important part of the ecosystem was 10-Gbps circuits between Moscow, Frankfurt, and Los Angeles, as well as 1-Gbps circuits between the venues. Those circuits allowed the Fox Sports team to embrace remote production and home-run productions, such as having the nighttime studio show from Red Square cut from Los Angeles. With much of the creative team for World Cup Tonight in Los Angeles, the challenge for the technical team was to make the workflows as seamless as possible. That meant changing some workflows that had been used at the 2015 Women’s World Cup and the 2018 Confederations Cup. At those events, ingest and live-playback operations were combined. For the 2018 World Cup in Russia, those groups operated independently, and the ingest team had its own area within the IBC. There were only two edit bays at the IBC with between nine and 17 bays in Los Angeles concurrently running Adobe After Effects and Premiere. The Telestream Lightspeed Live, Vantage media-processing platform, and Telestream cloud services were in use and allowed up to 60 simultaneous record channels in the IBC, with more than 25-55 TB of material uploaded every day to Amazon Web Services in Frankfurt via a 10-Gbps circuit. Once on the AWS service, the content was available to the team in Los Angeles. Also, three of the core feeds from FIFA were sent directly to Los Angeles via 220-Mbps streams. The ingest team’s work also extended to the venues. CMSI provided remote–point-of-capture (RPOC) systems located within the Fox Sports remote kits. Those systems allowed any of the six Fox ENG crews roaming around Russia to plug a card into the system, call the team at the IBC, and have the team transfer the content from the card to the servers in the IBC. CMSI also oversaw the Fox Sports Assignment Desk’s use of LiveU bondedcellular transmission systems. Fox Sports also deployed 10 RTS intercom frames running

OMNEO: one at the IBC, one at Red Square, one in Los Angeles, one at match control, and one in each of the six remote kits. The six were coupled with the RTS ROAMEO wireless intercom system for more flexibility, and, if necessary, the system could always revert to analog for backup. NEP’s presence at the World Cup extended across a wide number of clients, and, at the IBC, Fox Sports U.S., Fox Sports Brazil, and Telemundo relied on the remote-production–services provider as the backbone of their technical facilities. The NEP presence for Fox Sports was anchored in the IBC with an Imagine 450x650 IP3 router at the hub supporting a production-control room, audio room, EVS replay area, and ingest area. It also supported a technical-manager area for signal switching and managing the CenturyLink circuits that allowed the Fox Sports team at the IBC to connect to the studio at Red Square in Moscow and to Fox Sports in Los Angeles. — KK and BC

MLB ALL-STAR GAME NATIONALS PARK, WASHINGTON, DC JUL 17

ith its biggest summer drawing to a close with the MLB AllW Star Game, Fox certainly showed no sign of fatigue technologically. Not only did the network roll out a SkyCam system for

actual game coverage for the first time in MLB history, but Fox also deployed its largest high-speed–camera complement (including all 12 primary game cameras), two C360 360-degree camera systems, and ActionStreamer POV-style HelmetCams on the bullpen catcher, first-base coach, and Minnesota Twins pitcher José Berríos. “People always used to say Fox owned the fall with NFL and MLB Postseason, but, this year, we owned May through July, too, with the U.S. Open, World Cup, and now All-Star,” said Brad Cheney, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports. “The capabilities of our [operations] team here are just unsurpassed. For big events, we used to throw everything we had at it, and it was all hands on deck. That’s still the case, but now, when we have

big events, everybody’s [scattered] across the globe. Yet we’re still figuring out ways to raise the bar with every show.” Between game coverage and studio shows, Fox Sports deployed a total of 36 cameras (up from 33 in 2017) at Nationals Park, highlighted by its largest high-speed–camera complement yet for an All-Star Game. Building on the efforts of Fox-owned RSN YES Network, all 12 of Fox’s Sony HDC-4300 primary game cameras were licensed for high-speed: six at 6X slo-mo, six at 2X slo-mo. This was made possible by the ultra-robust infrastructure of Game Creek Video’s Encore mobile unit. Fox also had two Phantom cameras running at roughly 2,000 fps (at low first and low third) provided by Inertia Unlimited and a pair of Sony P43 6X-slo-mo robos at low-home left and lowhome right provided by Fletcher. Fletcher provided nine robos in all — including low-home Pan Bar robo systems that debuted at the 2017 World Series — and Inertia Unlimited provided a Marshall POV in both teams’ bullpen and batting cage. CP Communications supplied a pair of wireless RF cameras: a Sony P1r mounted on a MōVI three-axis gimbal and a Sony HDC2500 handheld. An aerial camera provided by AVS was used for beauty shots — no easy task in security-conscious Washington. Inside the compound, a reshuffling of USGA golf events allowed Game Creek Video’s Encore mobile unit (A, B, and C units), home to Fox’s U.S. Open and NFL A-game productions, to make its first All-Star appearance. The primary control room inside the Encore B unit handled the game production, and a second production area was created in the B unit to serve the onsite studio shows. — JD Fox Sports had its largest high-speed camera count ever at an MLB All-Star Game.

X GAMES MINNEAPOLIS

U.S. BANK STADIUM, MINNEAPOLIS JUL 19-22

74

nyone who works in sports-video production will tell you: the A second year in a venue almost always goes more smoothly than the first. True to form, the team from ESPN and X Games produc-

tion partner Echo Entertainment felt very much at home when X Games Minneapolis returned to U.S. Bank Stadium for the second year in a four-year deal. ESPN and ABC televised a combined 19 hours of live action-sports coverage, with an additional eight hours of exclusive coverage live-streamed to X Games’ Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter pages (U.S. only). ESPN and Echo had learned quite a few lessons in their first year at this venue: most notably, that they wanted to lay out and shoot the various courses in a different way. During the 2017 production, there were many points where, even with tens of thousands of fans in the stadium’s bowl, cameras were shooting with sightlines into empty seats. “It’s a very big stadium,” noted Tim Reed, VP, X Games, ESPN, during the event. “One of the things we were trying to do was create more of an arena feel within Park, Street, and Moto to create a smaller environment. We didn’t want to be shooting into seats as much. Also, it gets people closer, so they can have that touch and feel of the actual event.” That thought process also changed how ESPN and Echo approached camera deployment within the bowl of U.S. Bank

For the second year, U.S. Bank Stadium served as host of X Games Minneapolis.

Stadium. According to Echo Entertainment Technical Producer Pierce Williams, there were as many as 130 unique camera positions with a total of 65 cameras ranging from full-fledged manned cameras to POVs, robos, and slo-mos. Among the highlights were a couple of Grass Valley LDK’s set up as robos shooting down various ramps at 6X and a special proprietary RF-camera solution developed for X Games by RF partner BSI. On-board POVs could be affixed to a helmet, bike, etc., and were described as a “home run” by ESPN and Echo execs. Logistically, behind the scenes, ESPN and Echo again worked with mobile-production–facilities provider Dome Productions. Three A units and a B unit from the Canadian mobile giant were onsite. Echo was the main A-Venue truck; Pacific, the B-Venue truck. Thunder ran the host set onsite, and a B unit housed comms, MADI routers, robo ops, and more. — BC

OVERWATCH LEAGUE GRAND FINALS BARCLAYS CENTER, BROOKLYN, NY JUL 27-28 he inaugural Overwatch League season came to a close with the T Grand Finals at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, and the Blizzard Entertainment production team lent it the “Blizzard polish.” With

a sold-out crowd; millions streaming via Twitch, MLG.com, and OverwatchLeague.com; and live coverage on ESPN and Disney XD followed by a recap show on ABC (part of a recently announced rights deal), the tournament represented one of the largest esports events in North America to date and the culmination of a whirlwind first Overwatch League season. “From a Blizzard Entertainment perspective, this is the largest standalone esports production that we’ve produced,” said Pete Emminger, senior director, global broadcast, Blizzard Entertainment, during the event. “BlizzCon as a whole project is bigger since we have actually have five of our esports finals there, but, in terms of a standalone final, this is just massive. We have an internal term ‘adding the Blizzard polish,’ which basically means all of us are constantly driving to make every single [element] better for every single show. So everything we’re doing here is based on what we learned during Overwatch League Season 1, and, every week, our goal is to make it better than the last week. Our goal this week is to make [Grand Finals] the best show of the season.” With an operation involving more than 100 crew members, Blizzard aimed to replicate its production workflow at Blizzard Arena in Burbank, CA. NEP’s EN3 mobile unit (A and B) served as home to the main production, with A housing the primary

control room, audio, EVS replay, and camera shading while the B unit housed the edit, transmission, and IT teams. In addition, NEP’s BT-1 auxiliary unit was fully customized by Blizzard to serve its observer-room needs. The show’s main control room inside EN3’s A unit handled the overall show, while the observer room produced the in-game Overwatch action, including live first-person POV, Free Cam, cinematic-style, and “bullet time” (following a bullet frame-by-frame) coverage. The auxiliary unit was rolled out and integrated onsite to become a fully functional observer room. EN3 and the observer unit were fully integrated, with all the signal flows — a hybrid of HD-SDI broadcast feeds and DDI digital computer feeds — integrated through the same router. — JD

it simply doesn’t get bigger than US Open tennis. In FrightsortheESPN, network’s fourth year as host broadcaster and sole domesticholder — part of an 11-year rights deal — the technical and

operations teams continued to evolve production workflows and add elements. Highlights this year included the debut of a Fletcher Tr-ACE/SimplyLive ViBox automated production system covering the nine outer courts and several new camera systems. “This truly is the largest event that ESPN produces out of the thousands of events that we do all year, and it’s all done in a 3½-week span,” said ESPN Director, Remote Operations, Dennis Cleary. For the first time, ESPN covered all 16 courts at the US Open, thanks to a new automated production system deployed on the nine outer courts Having debuted at Wimbledon in June, the Fletcher Tr-ACE motion-detecting robotic camera system was Inside ESPN’s Domestic Control Room in the NTC Broadcast Center

deployed on each court (with four robos per court) and relied on SimplyLive’s ViBox for switching and replay and an SMT automated graphics system. With this workflow, one robotic camera operator and one ViBox director/producer covered each of the nine courts. New this year was a two-point aerial CineLine system (provided by Picture Factory) running between Armstrong and Court 10, a run of roughly 1,000 ft. After a successful debut at Wimbledon in June and the Australian Open in January, Telstra Broadcast Services’ NetCam made its US Open debut. The Globecam HD 1080i/50 POV miniature robotic camera was deployed on each side of the net for singles matches at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium, and the Grandstand, providing viewers with a close-up look at the action on the court. In addition, both Intel’s Tru View 360-degree camera system and the SpiderCam four-point aerial system returned to Ashe. The US Open production compound was almost unrecognizable from five years ago, prior to ESPN’s taking over as host broadcaster. What had been a caravan of production trucks became two permanent structures housing ESPN’s NTC broadcast center and production/operations offices, along with two ultra-organized stacks of temporary work pods housing the TOC, vendors, international broadcasters, and ESPN’s automated production operation for the outer courts. NEP’s NCP8 was on hand for ESPN’s ITV operation (serving AT&T/ DirecTV’s US Open Mix Channel), and NEP’s Chromium and Nickel were home to the USTA’s world-feed production. — JD

11:30 a.m. on Monday, July 2, coverage of the AtWimbledon tennis Championships went live from

the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), produced for the first time by a new host broadcaster. After more than 80 years under the BBC’s expert guidance, the host baton was passed to Wimbledon Broadcast Services (WBS), bringing production of the Championships in-house. Going live on that Monday was the culmination of two years of planning, preparation and testing: a process that has allowed the AELTC to “take control” of the event coverage and provide international rights holders with a better service as well as add some new twists such as Ultra High Definition (UHD), a Net-cam on both Centre Court, and No.1 Court and multi-camera coverage of all 18 courts. — Will Strauss

The Fédération Française de Tennis (FFT) increased overall court coverage this year, and Tennis Channel is making sure all of that additional coverage makes it to viewers. Tennis Channel had approximately 175 crew members onsite, working across the grounds as well as in a main production-control room, an asset-management area, six announce booths, and a main set on Place des Mousquetaires.

This year, Dorna began doing more remote production through its partnership with Tata.

CLARK MEDIA Clark Media Positions New Truck as Flexible Alternative for 4K UHD Production By Karen Hogan Ketchum

C

lark Media rolled into NAB 2018 with a brand-new, 53-ft. expando production truck designed specifically to handle 4K UHD and HD productions. The company, which describes itself as “The David Among Goliaths,” designed the truck to be not only powerful but also nimble and flexible to serve a wide variety of productions. “When we commissioned this cutting-edge design, we knew we’d be installing the latest technology across the board, but we wanted to go beyond that,” said President/Chief Engineer Gary Snyder. “We also took the human factor very seriously. We made optimum use of the interior space, so there’s ample room for all crew positions, as well as their tech setup like laptops, encoders, and converters that today no one leaves home without.” The truck features a 5M/E Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame production switcher and 2M/E Korona panel (on request) and 16 Sony HDC-4300 4K/HD cameras with Fujinon UA22x8 and UA13x4.5 4K Plus Premiere lenses. It also houses a coloraccurate shading room and 4K HDR reference monitors. Extras like matte boxes, filters, and additional engineering support equipment are available. According to Managing Partner Gary Corrigan, a 40-year veteran of the broadcast business, getting the camera mix right in an always changing camera-tech landscape is essential. “We’re taking a hybrid approach,” he said. “Having worked in both single-camera and multicamera environments, I’m excited to see the two formats merging. There are distinct advantages to both the large-format 35mm and the standard

2/3-in. sensor, and, increasingly, we’re integrating the two by offering full camera control and communications. One recent project called for 12 Sony F55 cameras cut live to tape.” The company also offers its Mobile Flypack Systems. “With more than 25 years of multicamera production experience,” said Snyder, “we know needs can change on a dime. We always provide custom-designed modular systems that are prewired and configurable to meet the demands of a lively, possibly unpredictable production.” The 5.1-surround audio suite features a Calrec Artemis 56-fader panel with 240 channels, DSP, 24 mic/line inputs, and 24 line outputs, including three MADI inputs and outputs. All noise-generating gear is housed in a separate room, creating a quiet space for the audio mixer to work. “Quality today also means user-friendly,” said Snyder, “Our 5.1 Mixing Audio Suite is not only one of the largest available but also remarkably quiet. All noise-generating equipment, like fans and power supplies, is isolated in a separate room, which the audio teams will appreciate.” For replay, the truck provides up to four EVS XT4K servers with 32 channels of single-mode fiber transmit and receive and up to 24 channels of 4K recording. For graphics, Clark Media offers a ChyronHego Mosaic and Ross Video XPression on request. Rounding out the truck’s gear is an Imagine Communications Platinum IP-3 router with 533 3G inputs and 622 3G outputs. Clark Media’s truck includes seating for 24 (the main production area itself seats 12). Two 12-ton air-conditioning units regulate the interior temperature so the crew keeps cool but doesn’t freeze. “After decades of experience,” noted Snyder, “we’ve learned that a happy crew means a successful production.”

GAME CREEK VIDEO Game Creek Video Launches 79 With IP Infrastructure, 4K HDR Capabilities By Karen Hogan Ketchum

F

ollowing a busy 2017 that saw three new trucks hit the road, Game Creek Video kept the momentum going in 2018 with the launch of 79, its most technologically advanced IP truck to date. 79 is serving the biggest shows on ESPN — think College Football Playoff National Championship and the NBA Finals — as well as a host of other marquee events on the sports calendar. Named for the year in which ESPN was founded, 79 is Game Creek’s third IP truck in less than four years, following Encore in 2015 and Yogi in ’17. With each new build, Game Creek has learned from and improved upon the previous IP infrastructure in order to take advantage of existing IP-based technologies and prepare for what’s to come. “Encore was built simply for capacity’s sake,” said Jason Taubman, VP, design/new technology, Game Creek Video. “We’re starting to build trucks now for IP’s sake: what that can bring to the table down the road in terms of capacity and native connectivity to other devices. The industry is clearly going that way, and we’re trying to be right out on the bleeding edge of it.” The 53-ft. expando comprises an A and B unit: the A unit houses the main production area, audio production, and core engineering; B unit, graphics, replay, and editing. One of the most noticeable highlights of 79 is the largest production area ever constructed by Game Creek, with a monitor wall that can display more than 200 images at once.

The monitor wall inside 79 can display more than 200 images at once, ideal for ESPN’s CFP National Championship coverage.

“The College Football Playoff National Championship is basically ESPN’s Super Bowl: it’s the largest single production that they do every year,” said Garrett Sullivan, VP, Game Creek Video. “We have over 100 cameras for that game and the director, Derek Mobley, needs to see every one of them. We needed to have a monitor wall that could provide him with that. With shows like that, ESPN comes out with quite a roster of individuals, and they need a space to be part of the production. That’s what this facility will do for the foreseeable future.” 79 is based on an Evertz IP infrastructure, including an Evertz EXE SVDN 888×1164 video router that services both units. Although the driving force behind launching another IP truck was need for capacity — “If you want to do 4K at college-football-championship scale, that forces you into an IP truck,” said Taubman — the Game Creek Video team has been keeping a close eye on the SMPTE 2110 suite of standards. Game Creek has already begun making changes and upgrades to 79; recently, the team swapped out 79’s original Grass Valley K-Frame production switcher for the new K-Frame X model. “We are fully expecting the K-Frame X from Grass Valley to be 2110-capable shortly, and, as soon as that becomes available, we’re going to start converting that infrastructure into a 2110-style infrastructure,” said Taubman, when 79 first hit the road. “We’re also expecting the future offerings from EVS and Sony to be native IP, so we’re positioning ourselves to take advantage of all of that as it becomes available.” 79 houses a Calrec Apollo surround-sound console with Hydra2 to link desks and an Evertz EMR 20096×20096 audio router.

GAME CREEK VIDEO

continued

Game Creek wired 79 for up to 32 full CCUs in 4K and carries Sony HDC 4300 cameras with Canon lenses onboard. Fifteen 12-channel EVS XT4K replay servers — all 3G- and 4K-capable — add up to 180 total channels of available replay. Image Video is responsible for tally, and Vizrt and ChyronHego graphics systems are also on board. The truck is HDR-ready and able to handle 4K or 1080p HDR at the scale of a World Series or Super Bowl. “Instead of having one, two, three trucks at one particular location, we can have one system that services all sorts of different needs. 79 is going to do that,” said Sullivan. “We’re seeing a big push for 4K HDR and 1080p HDR. This truck is ready to go on both fronts.” For audio, Game Creek selected a Calrec Apollo surroundsound console with Hydra2 to link desks, and an Evertz EMR 20096×20096 audio router manages all connectivity (the audio router breaks down to 288×288 analog, 480×480 AES, 2944×2944 MADI, and 16384×16384 embedded). A DirectOut Technologies MADI speaker for audio monitoring and an RTS Omneo IP-based intercom were also installed. “It basically allows us to deal with audio everywhere, so we have the ability now in the IP infrastructure to embed and de-embed audio from any stream, anywhere,” said Taubman. “It just makes it a lot more flexible for us.” 79 officially hit the road in February, covering a Sundayafternoon Cleveland Cavaliers vs. San Antonio Spurs game for ABC. Its schedule filled up quickly, with several big shows on ESPN and others over the following months. And Game Creek wasn’t done yet; a new edit truck, Edit 4, made its long-awaited debut at the Final Four in San Antonio. Edit 4, a 53-ft. expando, provides space for up to nine spacious edit suites. At the Final Four, it was used to cut postproduced content: from teases to transitions, features, and more. Turner Sports works with Los Angeles-based Thumb War Productions to help manage its complex 79 is wired for 32 full CCUs in 4K, and carries Sony HDC-4300 cameras and Canon lenses.

editing infrastructures, and the company played a key role, working with both Turner and Game Creek to get the suites in Edit 4 humming. The unit has been wildly popular with editors because it is highly customizable, with retractable sliding walls that allow collaborative work or secluded focus. “The guys at Game Creek really thought of all of the little nuances,” said Chris Brown, director, technical operations, Turner Sports. “For example, even just the rack depth is extra long. It’s been thought-out, all the different things we’d want in there. It’s a really well-built truck.” Following the Final Four, Edit 4 hit the road for Fox Sports’ coverage of the U.S. Open, MLB All-Star, PGA Championship, and the network’s NFL coverage.

MOBILE TV GROUP Mobile TV Group’s FLEX Series Hits West Coast With 44 FLEX; 45 FLEX To Be Fully IP By Jason Dachman

I

n 2018, Mobile TV Group rolled out its latest two-trailer, dual-feed mobile unit: 44 FLEX and its 44 VMU (visitors mobile unit) companion truck. Although the “FLEX” model is nothing new for MTVG — which has been launching these two-trailer, dual-feed mobile units for half a decade now — 44 FLEX is the first to operate on the West Coast, serving primarily Fox Sports West, Prime Ticket, and Fox Sports San Diego. “44 brings our FLEX series, dual-feed approach to the West Coast for the first time, which we’re very excited about,” said Mobile TV Group CEO Philip Garvin. “It has all the standard Mobile TV Group regional-sports systems, including four superslo-mo [cameras]. So we now have an extremely powerful truck in the second-largest media market in the country, which is great.” The two-trailer 44 FLEX/VMU system, like Denver-based 43 FLEX/VMU launched in May 2017, allows the home and visitor productions to be housed in separate trailers while sharing all sources and equipment, including super-slo-mo cameras. 44 FLEX is built around a 7M/E Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame X switcher (96 inputs/48 outputs) and 378x802 Evertz 3G router. It rolls with eight LDX82 Premier 720p/1080i triax cameras (additional LDX82 cameras if the VMU is used) and four LDX86 Universe super-slo-mo HD/3G fiber cameras — all with Fujinon lenses. For replay, the units feature two 12-channel EVS XT3 servers, two 12-channel XT4K’s, and a four-channel EVS XS3 server for SpotBox (two channels per show during dual feeds). There are four SSMOs, 20 HD inputs, and 12 HD outputs when the truck is running in SSMO mode. The two XT4K’s can be split into two operator positions, each with four inputs/two outputs. Up to three EVS replay-operator positions are available in the VMU. On the audio side, the truck features a 64-fader Calrec Artemis Beam console (256 routable inputs via MADI, 64 analog inputs/64 analog outputs) and a 2,752x2,848 Evertz audio router (embedded audio, 18 MADI, 48 AES, 96x192 analog), as well as an RTS ADAM-M Matrix intercom system (64 OMNEO ports, 32 MADI channels, 48 analog ports).

“Our goal is to use this FLEX dual-feed model with all this equipment as the standard in all regions, so there is there consistency,” said Mobile TV Group COO Nick Garvin. “When people walk into an MTVG mobile unit, it will feel familiar on our FLEX units all over the country.” 44 FLEX will be working Angels, Ducks, Kings, Clippers, and Padres for Fox Sports RSNs and will periodically handle visitor shows at Dodger Stadium and other one-off shows in the L.A. area, such as boxing events at Staples Center. “We are very pleased with 44 Flex,” said Nick Davis, executive producer, Fox Sports West, Prime Ticket, and Fox Sports San Diego. “The built-in technical advances have given us more flexibility in designing and executing our game-production plans. We’ve used it for Padres and Angels baseball, Kings hockey, and Clippers basketball shows so far, and it’s been terrific.” 44 FLEX/VMU is largely similar to its recent predecessors, but MTVG’s next truck will take a bold step in the direction of IP. Set to hit the road in spring 2019, 45 FLEX/VMU will be almost entirely IP-based, housing an IP router, switcher, cameras, and EVS. “I think, when you walk into 45, it’s going to look and feel and operate just like 44 and our other [recent trucks], but the infrastructure under the hood is going to be all-IP,” said Philip Garvin. “We were determined to do this right, so, when we say allIP, we really mean it. It’s not just the [router] with a whole bunch of gateways. It will be natively interconnected via SMPTE 2110 to all devices, so it’s a full-IP ecosystem. We waited [to go IP] until we could do it right.” 112

NEP GROUP NEP Rolls Out Ultra-Flexible EN3 With SMPTE ST 2110 IP Core for ESPN By Jason Dachman

E

very NEP launch pushes the technological envelope. The debut of EN3 for ESPN on March 30, however, was historic: it’s the first truck in North America built around a SMPTE ST 2110 IP routing core. After a long standardization process, SMPTE officially published the first standards within ST 2110 Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks in December 2017, and EN3 is the first mobile unit to be designed and integrated specifically around the new standards suite. Of course, installing the first SMPTE 2110 core was about much more than bragging rights for NEP. Rather, the IP infrastructure in EN3 allowed NEP to create one of the most flexible mobile units ever. The ability to function as a twin-trailer or a single-trailer unit will enable ESPN to “assign this resource to just about every level of show,” said ESPN VP, Remote Operations, Chris Calcinari. “The primary concern that ESPN had was the flexibility of the mobile unit,” explained Nick Romano, engineering manager, NEP U.S. Mobile Units. “They wanted to be able to do a remote show [ranging] from a very large show to a GREMI [graphics remote integration] to a REMI [remotely integrated at-home production], which would lessen the amount of people onsite and allow more people to work [on the show from] Bristol. It needed to be very versatile in terms of the systems integration. We gathered that information and sat down with our systems-integration team, who did a phenomenal job in hearing the requests and coming up with one of the most flexible units that I’ve seen in the industry.” The two-trailer EN3 builds on NEP and ESPN’s previous two top-level projects — EN1 (home of Monday Night Football) and EN2 (home of Sunday Night Baseball) — and is being used primarily for the network’s NBA coverage. With EN3, ESPN has the option of multiple configurations: as a twin, the A unit as a standalone truck, or, in confined areas, with the B unit’s expanding side closed. “For ESPN’s changing production workflows, it had to have the firepower and production space to do a big-level NBA on ABC show but also the scalability and flexibility to go in and operate as a single-truck unit for a regional broadcast

NEP designed EN3 to have flexible workstations that allow the unit to adapt to the needs of the client.

or a collegiate-sports broadcast, where we don’t necessarily need to utilize a B unit,” said NEP Senior Account Manager Michael Pean. “[Joe Signorino, VP, systems integration, NEP U.S. Mobile Units] and his team have done an amazing job of giving us the flexibility to be able to do any type of show.” The B unit houses several flex console positions, allowing workstations ranging from replay to graphics to be positioned anywhere in the truck. In addition, all monitors at the individual workstations are on rails, so that they can slide together to build a production-monitor wall for a second control room if need be. “The technical flexibility is important because the future is packed full of different execution models and potential standards,” said Calcinari. “One day, we could be doing a REMI or GREMI from this truck, and, the next, we could be doing a 1080p or 4K HDR show. The IP backbone, along with the most recent multi-standard production tools in every single area, will ensure that we are prepared to handle whatever comes our way. “From a workspace perspective,” he continued, “NEP has done an incredible job allowing each space to be customized for a particular show. We required this system to run with or without the B unit, which allows us to maximize this resource across large as well as mid-level shows.” Although EN3 is NEP’s fourth truck to feature an IP router, it’s the first with a “classic” footprint.

“We learned a lot over the last several years in relation to IP,” Signorino explained. “This is the fourth IP-based truck we’ve done, but they were primarily huge, five-truck systems. We always had an eye towards creating a more [classic] footprint and a lot quicker setup and strike. I think this unit helps define the near future for what we’ll be doing at NEP.” Built around an Evertz EXE router (732×732 HD video) and Grass Valley Kayenne X-Frame switcher (128 inputs/96 outputs, 5.5M/E), EN3 is the first North American truck in which the router and switcher are fully interconnected via SMPTE 2110. “When we started on the project [over a year ago], SMPTE 2110 was well on its way to completion of the video and audio portions of the standards,” said Signorino. “Obviously, we didn’t want to build something that we’d have to end up changing shortly, so we pushed several manufacturers to get on the bandwagon with us for a 2110 deployment and started getting more equipment connected via IP. You have to [accept that] certain gear may not be ready to work in the standard yet, but we decided to focus on a couple of key things. One was working very closely with Grass Valley and Evertz on the interface between the switcher and the router so that we could have those two devices connected together.” By installing the IP router, NEP not only saved weight and space but also reduced power needs, noise, and heat. Nearly all the louder, heat-generating components are centrally isolated in the engine room behind a slider door, significantly reducing ambient noise and excessive heat. The truck rolls with 12 Sony cameras (10 HDC2500’s and two HDC4300’s) with Canon lenses (eight 95×8.6 hard lenses, four 22:1 handhelds, and two 4.3X wide angles). On the replay side, EN3 is equipped with four EVS XT4K 12-channel LSM (10-GB) systems, one EVS 4K six-channel SpotBox (10-GB), two EVS XFile3’s, and three EVS XHub3’s, EVS IPDirector, and EVS XT Access systems. Also on board are Vizrt graphics. “Baseband still works very well, so the question becomes What does IP really bring to the table?” said Signorino. “It Inside EN3’s main production room, the switcher is tied to the router via SMPTE 2110.

EN3’s primary replay/tape room includes four EVS XT4K servers.

not only brings more flexibility but also scale, so you are able to scale the size of the system from one show to another and make something that is a lot larger than would be possible in an SDI-based system. That is certainly the case with EN3.” Inside the A unit’s audio room is a Calrec Apollo audio console (1,020 channels with full signal processing); the B unit has a submix room featuring a Calrec Artemis Beam (340 channels with full signal processing). Both units have Bluefin2 high-density signal processing. EN3 also marks the first NEP unit to feature Waves DSP servers in lieu of terminal equipment for audio-signal processing. The IP infrastructure and use of IP Gateways (IPGs) have also allowed NEP to significantly shrink its field fiber kits from the size of a small refrigerator down to a max of 16RU, according to Romano. For comms, EN3 is equipped with a 368-port RTS Adam Intercom System. ESPN’s growing use of the GREMI model — in which graphics and some replay operators are located in Bristol but the equipment remains on the truck — played a key factor in EN3’s design. The network believes that IP-based trucks like EN3 will enable increased use of these workflows. “[GREMI was] a very important factor,” said Calcinari. “The GREMI model has been very successful for us, and we are continuing to develop workflows that will allow further expansion of controlling devices, sitting in a truck at site, from our various studio hubs. The IP layer will clearly allow us to take the hub model to the next level.” Although EN3 is fully capable of 4K and HDR production, there are no near-term plans to utilize these capabilities. However, Calcinari said, EN3 will be ready should ESPN seek to produce shows in these next-gen formats. “Having this fully capable resource will allow us to continue our field testing,” he pointed out. “To the extent that ESPN has a requirement for one of these standards, we will be prepared to execute.”

ROSS MOBILE PRODUCTIONS Ross Mobile Productions Targets Esports, Preps for 4K With New RMP6 By Jason Dachman

I

n 2018, Ross Mobile Productions (RMP) rolled out its most technologically advanced production truck to date. RMP6, a 30-ft. expando, is the company’s first 4K-capable unit and is designed to cover a variety of sports, including RMP’s growing esports business. “4K is something that all of us at Ross want to help bring into the marketplace. As the need for it grows, we want to be in a position, like with everything else we do, to meet the demands of our customers,” said Ross Mobile Productions President/Executive Producer Mitch Rubenstein. “RMP6 is an all-fiber truck with 1080p, IP capabilities, and field audio, required for our growing esports customer base. The on-board eight to 12 [Hitachi] cameras and production layout make it ideal for boxing and larger sporting events. With the addition of our legacy [Ross Video] Furio, Cambot, Pivot [robos], and wireless cameras, it’s a great concert truck as well.” Designed around a tightly integrated 3M/E Ross Video Carbonite BLACK production switcher and XPression graphics core, the all-fiber RMP6 features three eight-channel replay systems (one EVS XTnano and two Ross Abekas Mira servers), a Ross Carbonite eXtreme video router, Ross Ultrix audio router, and up to 22 multiview screens. The truck is also equipped with internet to and from the truck via WiFi. The unit is wired for 12 CCUs and rolls with eight Hitachi SK-UHD-4000 cameras — two of them high-speed systems operating at 180 fps — and Canon lenses. The audio side features a DiGiCo SD9B console with fiberoptic SM ST connectivity, Sennheiser and Audio-Technica mics, and a Clear-Com Median intercom matrix frame for comms. In addition, the truck travels with two field kits, each providing a mixer stage box for analog audio I/O. RMP6 launched in January 2018 with some four- and five-camera basketball games. Its first major event, a PBC Primetime Boxing on Fox show on Feb. 17 in El Paso, TX, deployed eight cameras, Abekas Mira slow-motion replay, and full 5.1 stereo audio. The truck has also worked PBC on Bounce, the AAC Tournament for ESPN, the Inaugural 3x3 Basketball National Championship for Twitter and ESPN, the Diving World Cup on NBCSN, NBC World Rugby Sevens, Women’s Baseball World Cup, ESL PUBG mobile tournament, and the Myrtle Beach Invitational for ESPN. “At Ross,” said Rubenstein, “we are all tasked with

understanding our customer’s requirements and evolving our offerings on a yearly basis to better meet their needs. RMP6 gave us the ability to again scale to a higher level and more complex show while maintaining affordable pricing in a larger footprint. RMP6 is another platform we have introduced to show the commitment Ross and our mobile division have toward servicing and benefiting the broadcast industry.

TNDV TNDV’s Destination Is Mainly for Music But Has Sports in Mind By Jason Dachman

T

NDV’s relaunched Destination mobile unit has a lengthy history. The Tennessee-based mobile-production-services provider is actually the third owner of the truck, which was known as Blackjack when TNDV took ownership and was often used for sports production by its previous owner, Greystone Media. For the past four years, the truck has supported all in-house A/V production for the Atlanta Hawks at Phillips Arena (renamed State Farm Arena in 2018), and, when the venue’s A/V system was overhauled prior to the 2018-19 NBA season, TNDV opted to do the same for Blackjack and put it back on the road under the new Destination moniker. “When Phillips Arena did a complete revamp of their in-house A/V system, we put the truck back into our rotation,” said TNDV Owner Nic Dugger. “Destination has become a one-off event truck, versus serving long-term needs at a specific venue. That meant it was time for a design change.” With Destination, TNDV is targeting primarily the concert/ festival market — although Dugger says there will be plenty of room for sports as well. “We are seeing a lot of interest in this truck for large concerts, festivals, and entertainment events,” said Dugger. “We have specialized the infrastructure to handle a high density of video and audio feeds. We can switch multiple outputs from within the truck, which is a nice feature for these large musical events. “That said, Destination is also built with sports production in mind,” he continued. “There is a high camera count, and we have a full 3M/E switcher. We can switch three outputs at the same time or build multiple banks for effects. That’s an unusually large switcher for a production truck [of this size].” The 40-ft. expando truck is built around a Ross Carbonite 3M/E switcher and Imagine Communications Platinum router and rolls with four Hitachi HD-SK1200 cameras (wired for six camera chains) outfitted with Fujinon lenses. Audio is handled by a Soundcraft Si Expression 1 (16 faders/64 input channels) console and A-T, Telefunken, and Studio Tech microphones; comms, via an RTS 24-port Matrix intercom system. A NewTek 3Play is on board for replay (with EVS and Ross Video Abekas Mira systems available on request). In addition, the truck is wired for five DDR/VTR record decks and features AJA Ki-Pro digital disc recorders. Graphics are available on request (ChyronHego HyperX3, Ross XPression, or Avid Deko).

MOBILE SPORTS PRODUCTION YEARBOOK 2019

Destination conforms with TNDV’s -ation suffix concept, joining Exclamation, Aspiration, Inspiration, and Vibration.

“We’re sticking with traditional favorites with Destination,” said Dugger. “This includes Hitachi HD-SK1200 cameras, which have been a go-to for high-end cameras... We are sticking with Ross on the switching side, with a Carbonite model. And we like Imagine Communications’ Platinum line for signal routing and multiviewing.” The unusual layout features two main production areas and an audio suite. The back area of the truck is very separated from the front area, providing a sizable area for producers or editors to work during a live production. TNDV has added a full “picnic-style” bench, as well as a small kitchenette with a refrigerator and table seating for the crew to use. Beyond multi-stage festivals and large entertainment events, Dugger sees opportunity for Destination to serve high school and college sports. He also considers the truck an ideal companion truck for larger award shows and sports events that require one of TNDV’s flagship trucks (for example, redcarpet shows or interview desks at a sports event). With a total of nine trucks, TNDV continues to grow its fleet and serve the niche market of customers requiring high-end production facilities with a smaller footprint than 53-footers can offer. “There are plenty of full-size trucks in the country, but there aren’t many medium- and smaller-footprint trucks that offer the same firepower as the large truck. Our clients still expect a large switcher, significant routing capabilities, and many cameras and multiviewer outputs,” said Dugger. “But they often need this in a smaller footprint that can fit backstage or in a tight alley. Having a 40-ft. truck with expanding sides allows our clients to fit productions in places where a full-size truck otherwise would not. We’re definitely filling a void in this niche market.”

2018 has seen further substantial growth for ES Broadcast’s systems integration, equipment sales, and hire operations. The company’s SI team has completed an upgrade of two OB vehicles for leading outside broadcast company Telegenic. Three brandnew HD OB vehicles will be delivered in late 2018 to RaceTech, the UK’s foremost horseracing broadcast services provider.

B18 has the ability to be a standalone unit when needed. Summer also proved a perfect time for many upgrades to the entire fleet in various areas; the biggest changes were made to GTX-16 and GTX-14.

Specifically, at the 2018 U.S. Open Men’s Tournament in Southampton, NY, Filmwerks supplied Fox with generator-UPS-generator power for the TV trucks and B-units. The first generator acted as “house power” with the UPS as back-up to auto-start the second generator if “house power” was lost. The Fox office/edit trailers, A/C, carts, and catering ran on redundant generator systems. Filmwerks’ in-house designers and fabricators built custom batteries with weatherproof housing for the USOM. Each battery box replaces what would normally be a Honda generator ran on gasoline. Making these custom boxes provided a more environmentally friendly option for Fox Sports and their EHS group. Filmwerks finished the golf season with Fox Sports in Charlotte, NC, after a summer filled with multiple network broadcasts.

Gearbase

Inside the Gear Numbers Results of SVG’s 13th-annual study of mobile-production equipment

T

he 13th-annual SVG Mobile Sports Production Gearbase Survey provides an ongoing database of production-truck technology for the North American fleet of more than 250 mobile units. Of the 258 mobile units listed in the 2019 Gearbase, only one is an SD-only truck — making the official death of SD nearly complete. With SD firmly in the rear-view mirror, a parade of 4K- and HDR-capable trucks has hit the road, with many more on the way in 2019. In addition, with the arrival of the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards, several companies are rolling out IP-based mobile units with an eye to the future. The 2019 Gearbase Survey covers 37 participating companies and lists nearly a dozen mobile units that debuted over the past 12 months. On the following pages is a listing of the trucks and their specs (based on data collected from participating companies in October 2018). Here is a brief summary of the Gearbase Survey’s key findings on the North American truck market. • With 59 trucks, NEP still has by far the largest fleet in North America, followed by Game Creek Video with 26, Mobile TV Group with 25 (not including its Visitor Mobile Units), Dome Productions with 19, and Gearhouse Broadcast with 12 (after acquiring the Proshow Broadcast fleet in July). In sixth place is Lyon Video (11), followed by F&F Productions (nine), and All Mobile Video and TNDV Television (eight each). Turn to page 22 for the Total Trucks by Company graphic. • Of the 258 mobile units covered in the survey, 48 are listed as 4K-capable (up from 35 last year), 43 are HDR-capable (even with last year), and 71 are 1080p-capable (up from 55 last year). • Of the 254 trucks whose camera complement was identified by brand, 137 use Sony (54%); 73 deploy Grass Valley (29%); 24, Ikegami (9%); 16, Hitachi (6%); four, Panasonic (2%), and one, JVC. • The battle for lens-market share remains a two-horse race. Of the 225 trucks that identified lens brand, 115 trucks carry exclusively Canon lenses (51%), 78 have only Fujinon (36%), and 25 have a mix of Canon and Fujinon lenses (11%). Three trucks (1%) also carry Agenieux lenses. • Among switchers, Grass Valley continues to dominate, with its units found at the center of 192 mobile units (76%). Sony and Ross Video have switchers 22 trucks apiece (8.5% of the market each), and Blackmagic Design units are in eight (3%) trucks.

• Calrec Audio remains the number-one audio console on trucks, with 161 consoles in 61% of the North American fleet. Yamaha is second, with consoles in 27 audio areas (10%), followed by Studer (26 trucks), Soundcraft by Harman (18), Avid/Euphonix (10), and DiGiCo (five). • The video-router sector remains diverse, judging by the 215 trucks that identified router brand. Evertz is atop the market in a total of 73 trucks (34%) with Grass Valley close behind at 53 (25%). PESA is third with 39 (18%), followed by Utah Scientific with 16 (7.5%), Ross Video with 15 (7%), Imagine Communications with 14 (6.5%), and Blackmagic Design with five. • In HD replay devices, EVS is once again the industry standard: 213 HD trucks were identified as relying on some form of EVS system as its primary replay device (although 23 of these trucks also carry some other form of replay device). Currently, 19 trucks carry Grass Valley K2 Dyno replay systems, nine have NewTek 3Play, and seven have Ross Video, although the majority of these trucks also have EVS replay systems. • ChyronHego is still the market leader in graphics. Its systems are in 150 trucks that identified a platform (109 exclusively carry ChyronHego graphics). 50 trucks carry Vizrt systems (11 exclusively Viz), and 21 deploy Ross Video graphics (14 exclusively).
