Looking Ahead

By Ken Kerschbaumer Sports Video Group, Executive Director, Editorial

L

ike last year, we once again put the focus on the events as well as the production trucks and technologies that defined the year in sports production. But, at the center of all of those trucks, events, and technologies, are the people in our industry who worked harder than ever to not only excel but to also, literally, survive. At first blush, many of the productions at the end of the year look very much like those in the beginning of 2020. Full stadiums, full compounds… the biggest difference is catering is a bit different and people are wearing masks inside the production trucks. Getting to this point — where there is at least some semblance of normalcy — is what 2021 will be most remembered for. The beginning of 2021 was still fraught with tremendous dangers and uncertainly as the COVID-19 vaccine rollout was just beginning and the vast majority of sports production professionals did not qualify for early shots. Events like the Super Bowl, March Madness, and Major League Baseball all took place under a cloud of uncertainty and even danger. But the sports production industry was able to persevere thanks to discipline, guidelines, social distancing, and lots and lots and lots of testing. As you read through the stories in the 2022 SVG Sports Production Yearbook, you will start to see the return of normalcy. More productions transitioned to being onsite rather than having on-air talent and others connected remotely. And vaccinations changed everything, allowing for social interaction to take a big step towards the kind of interactions that can build bonds and friendships that are a building block for professional success. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, topping the list of fears in the industry — clearly — was an outbreak that would not only jeopardize the production but also the lives of all of those who worked on the show. It wasn’t hard to envision a nightmare scenario where 150 people working an event could become ill and possibly even lose their lives. Thankfully, that didn’t happen. So where does the industry go next? What stories will be told in the pages of the 2023 SVG Sports Production Yearbook? We can only hope it will continue to be one where the focus will be on innovations like UHD, HDR, remote workflows, and cloudbased production. The industry is poised at a major tipping point where the capabilities of technology have finally caught up to the dreams of technology. The ability to spin up and spin down a virtual production control room in the cloud will put high-quality sports production tools at the fingertips of nearly every entity, big or small. Want your small-time league content to look as great as the content created by a big-time league? Soon you will be able to do that without having a big-time league budget. And that will change everything. The SVG Sports Production Yearbook has always been a celebration of the entire industry and 2021, more than any previously, is one to truly be celebrated. It was a year of great challenges, great accomplishments, and great moments. And we hope this Yearbook will ensure they are not forgotten.

SPORTS PRODUCTION LEADERS WEIGH IN ON CHALLENGES, OPPORTUNITIES AHEAD

Reflections 2021

Reflections 2021 A

s the sports-production industry begins to confront a new normal in a postpandemic world, leagues, broadcasters, and facilities providers have been presented with a host of new challenges and opportunities. In the ensuing pages, some of the top executives in the business offer up their insights as to how they navigated the pandemic, what changed in their production operations as a result, and where they see the sports-production sector headed in the future.

Chris Brown

Turner Sports, VP Sports Production Tech “Our production folks are charging hard right now.”

W

e’ve had an opportunity to basically reinvent how we do productions. All of these things that we’ve talked about in the shadows [in the past] because we knew production [teams] might not support it, we finally had a chance to really put these ideas out there. We were able to test all these different theories, and a lot of those opportunities came from the manufacturer side. The manufacturers really stepped up to the plate and put a lot of new tools out there and put more energy and emphasis on the kinds of tools we were looking for. The opportunity for us now is really looking at all the different tools that we have out there and trying to see what will actually work for us long-term. From a Turner Sports perspective, we are looking to enhance our productions and looking at where the technology can be an asset to how we are doing those productions. And most importantly, how we can get more out of them — whether it’s cost savings or the ability to add things that we otherwise might not have thought about because the technology was just not available before. Oddly, that opportunity also presents one of our biggest challenges, which is how do we actually incorporate some of this new technology and build a workflow that fits the sport that we’re doing? Are we able to effectively tell the story? Are we able to effectively execute on our production teams’ visions using this technology? Our production folks are charging hard right now. From a creative standpoint, they want to present the best possible show to the audience. So it’s odd that our biggest opportunities also sometimes present some of our biggest challenges. But it’s a problem that I’m happy to have. At the end of the day, I would rather be trying to figure these things out and how to utilize these new workflows than what we were facing early on [in the pandemic]. Right now, we are really trying to take a step back, look at the landscape of where we are, understand all the opportunities and challenges we have, and figure out what makes sense for us moving forward.

Bob Carzoli

Program Productions, CEO and Chairman “...we’ve never seen this much collaboration in the industry among people who generally would consider to be competitors.”

W

e have two major challenges: one clearly is labor in the field as we’ve lost about 30% of the technology workforce in this country. And as visitors’ shows have come back, I would tell you that we’re struggling enormously to find qualified people. I think the second challenge is the pandemic is not over. Yes, we’re moving in the right direction, but we still have breakthrough cases. We still have contact tracing. We have technicians that refuse to get vaccinated and customers that demand that they get vaccinated. We’re just seeing far more curve balls than we ever saw in the past. The labor shortages aren’t going to be solvable quickly and we’ve got full-time training, we have paid training. But we’re never going to be able to fill the holes fast enough and so we’re going to continue to have to work with our customers on adjusting the size of their shows and the amount of people that have to travel in and out to do games. But I think opportunity-wise, we’ve never seen this much collaboration in the industry among people who generally would consider to be competitors. Whether it’s NEP and Mobile TV Group or Game Creek, whether it’s the transmission people, the equipment vendors, the networks… there’s been so much support in and among the community.

Mike Connelly

Bally Sports, EVP and Executive Producer

“The opportunities are just staring us in the face, and it’s a great time for our business.”

E

very day is a challenge because we’re so worried about everything besides great productions. We’re so distracted by so many other things, but we just want to get to the point where we’re focused on producing a great event. I think we’re finally inching closer back to just focusing on putting great events on the air. The opportunities are just staring us in the face, and it’s a great time for our business. When the pandemic started and the NBA closed their doors almost two years ago, we got together with the Garvins [at Mobile TV Group] and our ops staff and we said, “this is an opportunity.” We’ve got a break and this is where we can create change. And change came and it’s continuing to come and it’s for the better. The future is here. What I really like about [the industry right now] is we’re closer now than we’ve ever been. The networks are all talking, the truck companies are talking, and the networks are talking to all truck companies. I’m closer with the heads of all the RSNs and the national networks than I’ve ever been. And we’re working together to make a better product. And when we get through this, we’re going to be so much better off and we’re going to be able to do so many more things using technology to take it to the next level. It’s going to be so fun to see what this all looks like 10 years from now.

Reflections 2021

Mary Ellen Carlyle Dome Productions, GM/SVP

“... if we don’t embrace that transformation, we’re not going to have that opportunity.”

I

think the opportunity for Dome Productions is we’re going to have different workflows, we’re going to have different clients, we’re going to have different staff, and we’re having different events. We just presented our 2022 business plan, and the main theme of the business plan was transformation. And if we don’t embrace that transformation, we’re not going to have that opportunity. The greatest opportunity in the business side is our distribution business, which is growing leaps and bounds because of the different workflows. We’re able to offer smaller productions like the Canadian Hockey League and bring cameras back to our main NOC and then produce it there. And we also just did an agreement with the National Lacrosse League to produce some games and for the League’s own application. So that’s more content for our distribution businesses as well as our control rooms based in Toronto.

Kate McClure

Dome Productions, Senior Operations Manager

“...this is the chance for people to... come in and do roles that they might not have had exposure to.”

O

ur challenge today is crewing as we went from zero back to a marketplace that’s thriving with tons of work, which is fantastic. But during those 18 months where there wasn’t a lot of work, people made a lot of choices in their career, and we knew that there was going to be a shift in crew over time. But a lot of talented crew people have left the marketplace. We can bring new people, but how do you train them? And on top of that there are different types of productions, so we are also getting operators up to speed on that and making sure that they understand what we’re trying to do. And it’s great that when people are sick, they are calling in as it is keeping people healthy and safe. But it is those daily last-minute calls when crew is short where you need to ensure the crew is qualified and you’re giving the best for your clients. That being said, this is the chance for people to get an opportunity to come in and do roles that they might not have had exposure to. And we will provide qualified crew to our clients, but it’s a different process and a different challenge than maybe we’ve experienced prior to the pandemic.

Mike Davies

Fox Sports, SVP, Technical and Field Operations SVG Chairman “...it’s a great time to be in this business.”

I

n terms of opportunities, we’ve said that the pandemic has cut out two years of time in terms of the adoption of new workflows and technologies. That’s by no means scientific, but I think it’s true. That said, we’ve seen a bit of a stabilization in the rapid breakneck adoption of these technologies as we’re starting to see where these technologies fall in line and on which shows and to which workflows they actually apply. So maybe it’s not as rampant as it was before. The one truly exciting thing that I’ve observed in terms of innovation is what we’re seeing on the screen — big screen or small screen. The rapid adoption of shallow depth of field cameras, drones, augmented reality, different camera mounts, high-resolution capture, and 5G augmentation of connectivity has been breathtaking to witness. To boot, we also have a whole host of real-time gathered statistics that I think we’re just scratching the surface on in terms of what our business can do to utilize them, exploring how all of all this data can connect us to one of the next big businesses — online betting, which is certainly growing. This rapid innovation can be challenging to keep up with, whether you’re a customer or a vendor — decisions on what to provide, buy, or invest in. These types of decisions are what makes this business exciting — after all, if one got in this business just to follow the path of what others have done, then it wouldn’t be nearly as fulfilling! There is no question that we are all being challenged to figure out how TV is going to be produced, what is going to be profitable, and what our changing audiences want to see. I think it’s a particularly exhilarating time, and where timely technology decisions can mean something in terms of what the future is going to look like. We’re authoring it right now and it is a tremendous opportunity. This can be intimidating, but it’s a great time to be in this business..

Patti Fallick

United States Tennis Association (USTA), Managing Director, Broadcast “How do we combine the best of working remotely and the best of working onsite...”

T

he opportunity is the certainty; knowing that we are planning an event that is actually going to happen and at the level we expect it to happen at. 2020 was challenging to say the least; 2021 was actually more challenging because at least in 2020 we knew we weren’t going to have fans, we knew we weren’t going to have broadcasters onsite. In 2021, we did many different budgets and many different plans based on all different iterations of if broadcasters were onsite, if broadcasters weren’t onsite, fans onsite, no fans onsite, 25% fans, 50% fans, 75% fans. That uncertainty was just extremely challenging. Combine that with still dealing with COVID issues, still dealing with the visa issues to get people into the country — both of which, for us, is a major challenge. I can’t wait for the certainty to know what that what we plan is actually going to happen. I think that’s the thing I’m looking forward to the most; going back to doing the event and focusing mainly on the event and without everything else that we’ve had to deal with. continued on page 26

Reflections 2021

Patti Fallick continued from page 22 We look at the challenge now as — we’ve all adjusted to different workflows, people working remotely from home, doing some of our technical services remotely. How do we combine the best of working remotely and the best of being onsite into what the new best is going to be? What works best for the venue, broadcasters, and for the event? We’ve had a lot of success with the virtual studio for our global broadcasters. Do we still need to do that going forward if more broadcasters are onsite? Are more people going to come onsite or is it still going to be a split world? We just don’t know what new technologies and new operational workflows are going to be the new norm. I think that’s the real challenge. Plus, trying to do all that with really tight budgets because we had a whole year without fans. We lost 80% of our revenue. We made some headway in getting that back this past year, but we still have a way to go. Yet, we still want to do UHD, 1080p, and the things that we planned two years ago and couldn’t do. So that’s the hardest challenge coming forward: what does that new normal look like?

Phil Garvin

Mobile TV Group, President “... on any given day, we have to be ready for a pretty wide gamut of requirements.”

L

ast season, we had a fairly limited number of workflows with world feeds and the occasional single feed. But, this season, we’re going to have about five flavors of the visiting show plus the home show. So, on any given day, we have to be ready for a pretty wide gamut of requirements. It’s extremely hard to be prepared for all of those and so that’s the challenge. The other challenge is that our clients want to see cost reduction in a fairly significant way. So, the request is do all these different workflows but do them for less. And, most of all, get cloud control going for every single visiting show so we can apply the cost savings of cloud control. And then the final challenge is working towards some point two years from now where cloud control has allowed for the use of yet another workflow that we haven’t even tried yet.

Nick Garvin Mobile TV Group, COO

“...it’s invigorating that these new technologies bring energy to our whole team...”

T

he pandemic was terrible and, of course, bad for our industry. But the silver lining was that it accelerated our client’s interests in new workflows and technologies. As we deploy dozens of our cloud control rooms, we see this as the first step in unlocking the potential of these new technologies that will help keep the quality of production high and the costs low. And, as a company, it’s invigorating that these new technologies bring energy to our whole team that works very hard these days.

020 was harder and easier for us. I don’t have to go through the litany of why the pandemic made it hard. This year, we’re kind of back to what I call quasi-normality. In other words, we are allowing trucks back into facilities, but it sets up four different models for every game. We’ve got to take a look at each of those and it’s dynamically changing. You’ve got host feeds where the away teams have full-blown REMI. You’ve got a unilateral truck side-byside. You’ve also got the really established cloud-anywhere, remotely controlled truck that was pushed on by the pandemic. You’ve got the classic dual feeds where you might have a shortage of truck resources with two shows being produced out of one truck. It’s very dynamic. Our Puck and Player Tracking technology — now known as NHL EDGE — is fully operational. All of our broadcast partners (National and RSN’s) are using the technology in some way, but each time you get to a different production model, specifically for the away show, you have to make sure that you’re offering up the right services. We also deploy Virtual Slot In-Ice Branding, introduced as one of our new revenue opportunities last season, which is electronically burned into the ice. We also have to work with our rightsholders to incorporate that technology and ensure a flawless execution. While the League’s business took a significant hit over the past 19 months, all signs point to our revenue getting back to pre-pandemic levels this season. The new revenue opportunities, such as Virtual Slot In-Ice Branding, and using technology in many different ways has really become the new normal. This presents challenges, but most importantly, opportunity.

O

ur biggest opportunity right now is opportunities. Managing the opportunities that we have to leverage in the things that we’ve done remotely that have worked for us really well and to leverage the new technology that we spent some time putting out in the venues, and leverage new partnerships with Verizon and AWS. The biggest challenge is getting the organization to pivot and dig back into workflow automation and R&D to start actually bringing all of those opportunities into products and more defined obvious benefits for the organization. We’re also looking to innovate in how we distribute signals and how we make it more economical to do a distribution deal with a company in [a remote destination like] Senegal that wants to put on a game. That’s something that relies more on the cloud than traditional networks. I think that’s where both the opportunities and the challenges for us are right now.

NBA Entertainment, EVP, Media Operations and Technology “We have actually found that we retained better people that were sharper and better able to do the job.”

T

he key opportunity is something that many of my other colleagues are pursuing: 1080p. We’ve made the entire HSAN network, 1080p, everything is converted at the panel. We’re bringing 35 feeds back per venue. Obviously, that benefits the replay center but mostly it benefits those people watching the NBA on mobile devices and on tablets because they’re close enough to see the quality of the pictures. I don’t mention HDR because I’m actually in charge of lighting the arenas and they’re so well-lit that HDR doesn’t help NBA that much. But for outdoor sports, absolutely, HDR is a clear upgrade. You can see, see the improvement of HDR. It’s just I don’t think it’s quite as key in the NBA. The challenge for us is to make a better content. During COVID, we developed many remote production techniques. The NBA Production and Operations team are holding onto many of them. For instance, on any NBA game, we have a logger, a content creator, and an operator switching the feed to create a continuous experience for those around the world that pay for the premium experience without commercials [in NBA League Pass]. We have actually found that we retained better people that were sharper and better able to do the job. We’re going to continue with many virtual workflows. The opportunity is to be back in the office together again for operations, engineering, software development, UI development. It’s great for them to bump into each other in the hallway. You’ve got a great idea, or half and idea, something that’s modified by somebody else that just happens to walk in the room or bumps into a person that can amplify the idea and make it better. That’s essential. I think for operations engineering and software development people to be back in the office it is an opportunity and a challenge to work together to better serve NBA fans globally.

Patty Power

CBS Sports, EVP Operations and Engineering “... technology is advancing rapidly and the productions are getting better.”

C

OVID was a great innovator for all of us. Specifically on the CBS side, operations and engineering were historically always pushing new things and we finally had production on the same page, going in the same direction as we created workflows using new technology together. We were taking risks, which wasn’t really the way we did things in the past when our priority was first and foremost to produce a high-quality telecast. So now, we’re focused on continuing that momentum and continuing to innovate. This is a great time for all of us as we are developing new ways of doing production. I think technology is advancing rapidly and the productions are getting better. We’re at a point on the CBS side where we look at our competitors and our friends in the industry at what they’re doing and how do we learn and borrow from some of those pages? We are hoping to build out a future facility that can accommodate our rapidly growing business across all platforms.

ith new opportunities come challenges. As it relates to people, our focus is on recruitment, growing our apprentice program, and providing training for new technologies. We are looking to bring more people into the industry across the board. In addition to people, all of these new opportunities require resources, everything from consoles to components. Sourcing these items is increasingly challenging, which is cause for concern. My hope for 2022 is more certainty. We are an industry that always wants to do better, and the sooner we get back to knowing we can get the resources we need, the more comfortable everyone will be making quick decisions to create solutions that move the industry forward.

orkflows is the hot topic these days. And we benefit from what NEP launched five years ago in Australia with the Andrews Hubs and also in the Netherlands. We’ve successfully built out remote workflows, and here in the U.S., we’re taking the best in what they’ve done and developed and applying it to our own unique systems. We also just recently launched our New York and LA production centers, which are doing an NFL show every Thursday night. So right now, footprint-wise, we have four remote facility locations in the U.S. and growing. And, back in March, we acquired VISTA Worldlink, which really launched us into doing 1,500 events for USL, MLS, NWSL, and other leagues. And transmission is a big part of a growing business because of the VISTA acquisition. Just knowing that we have connectivity in our facilities has kind of brought on new opportunities for us, everything from remote commentary to doing a full game, to just doing transmission services. And, of course, we’re obviously heavily invested in the mobile unit business and we’re going to continue to heavily invest in the mobile unit business. But I think that’s going to be different where our mobile units will have the capabilities to connect to any one of our facilities globally, or any of our client’s facilities, wherever they want to be. It’s about being really as versatile as possible so that as things grow, we have all these answers and all the capabilities within our infrastructure. We have our production hubs, we have trucks being designed, and we have our broadcast control system “TFC” that allows us to connect and control everything. That puts us in a unique position and allows us to continue to innovate from a local level to a global level.

T

he acceleration of new technologies from the COVID-19 pandemic has given us the opportunity to be flexible with where our shows are produced and who gets to participate in the process. It behooves us to take advantage of this landscape where geography is not the obstacle to participation anymore, including people in front and behind the camera. We have an opportunity to create a more inclusive and diverse workforce, which we must take advantage of on a consistent basis. As we look ahead, we must also acknowledge that a significant challenge facing our business is the way people consume content, which is very different from where it was 10 years, five years, or even two years ago. The linear TV model, which has been one of the bedrocks for economic success for leagues, networks, and clubs, is continually facing pressure by the shifting media landscape. For the networks specifically, it is important that we continue to engage and partner with different media platforms as we figure out new ways to sustain and grow revenue in our industry.

he biggest challenge in the mobile business now is we are having a tough time finding drivers, and that is a national problem. And it’s probably just as hard to find engineers, especially really high-quality engineers that can interact effectively with customers. Opportunity-wise, I think we have really turned a great corner with our partners at the leagues and our counterparts in this industry. We’ve come up almost completely with a common solution for remote broadcasting so that our clients can go on the road and save money by not shipping their production folks and others on the road. And I think that opportunity is going to bear a lot of fruit over the next several years and create other opportunities for other ways of doing things that we haven’t really thought about yet. At Game Creek, we’ve got the pedal right to the metal and it’s a great time for our industry after coming out of the worst time for our industry.

A 2021 saw a wealth of technical enhancements across all networks and sports. Here, two FlyCam systems soared above Coors Field for the MLB All-Star Game.

fter a pandemic-fraught 2020, the live-sports-production industry welcomed 2021 as a return to normalcy. However, new and even great challenges arose as live sports productions continued to navigate the pandemic throughout 2021. Nonetheless, sports broadcasters, technology vendors, and production-service providers worked together to continue to develop unique new workflows — both onsite and remote — that paved the way for a new era of live-sports broadcasts. While early 2021 saw near-constant overlap of sports seasons due to schedule changes, the sporting events calendar began to stabilize in the second half of the year. As a result, sports viewership and ratings began to rise and sports-production teams began to return onsite. The ensuing pages provide an in-depth look at how the industry continued to innovate in 2021 and the monumental efforts undertaken by broadcasters to produce live sports events despite the ongoing pandemic.

College Football Playoff National Championship January 11, 2021 A

s one of ESPN’s most important properties, the College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship Game spurs increased innovation and ingenuity. Such events typically generate intuitive ideas, but the magnitude of the game and the curveball that is COVID-19 intensified efforts in pushing limits. ESPN rolled out one of its biggest efforts for the title game, including a 270,000-sq.-ft. compound, 75 in-game and studio cameras, and heavy reliance on remote workflows. “To support the operation and keep a socially distant area, we’ve had to come up with a unique plan here in Miami,” said John LaChance, director, remote production operations, ESPN. “We really transformed into a unique, one-of-a-kind broadcast compound.” Major sports events normally call for a large television compound, but ESPN’s setup next to Hard Rock Stadium was something totally different. COVID-19’s impact resulted in reduction of more than 150 onsite positions. Even so, 465 credentialed personnel were on hand for the game. With total control of the exterior loading docks, LaChance and his colleagues devised a detailed layout of each team’s location within the 270,000-sq.-ft. compound. An essential component to the operation was ensuring that everyone is healthy before they step foot in the area. “This year’s national health crisis,” LaChance said, “required a strategy that features enhanced safety protocols, multiple rounds of testing, health screenings, heightened cleaning and sanitation standards, and ample distribution of PPE.” The compound housed 13 mobile production units and ancillary support vehicles. Game Creek Video had a large presence for the production of the main telecast, College GameDay, and the MegaCast. Live Media Group’s Gracie was responsible for SEC Network’s live coverage, and a BSI truck handled all RF audio and video elements. In addition, a 15,000-sq.-ft. office facility was adjacent to the compound. The massive compound provided a lot of firepower, but, to prepare for any production emergency, the team developed a handful of backup plans to keep the linear and surrounding content on-air. “There is complete redundancy for power, transmission, and infrastructure of the broadcast,” noted LaChance. “We published an eight-page document with all of the backup plans and what-if scenarios that we hope we’ll never have to execute, but it’s comforting to know that we’ll be prepared should the need arise.” A total of 75 cameras and other broadcast gear were SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

ESPN constructed a 270,000-sq.-ft. compound for the National Championship game in Miami.

deployed to capture every play and sound of the title game. The broadcaster brought back a dual Skycam system (the traditional one close to the field and a “hi-sky” version) to get a full look at the playing field. When not traversing the field, the AllCam was positioned at an elevated vantage point for isolated shots of players and wider shots of plays. Up in the air, a fixed-wing aircraft and the Goodyear Blimp transmitted aerial views of the venue and the surrounding city. At field level, ESPN once again leveraged its extensive arsenal near the goal line and first-down line. A total of 28 POV cameras were embedded within the front and rear PylonCam systems. Those in the back-line pylons will have pan, tilt, zoom functionality, which was introduced for last year’s Championship Game in New Orleans. There were two styles of Marker Cam — one regular and one c360 with 180 degrees of movement — and two RF line-to-gain cameras on each sideline. Capping the complement were 26 specialty cameras: 11 Sony HDC-4300’s with super-slo-mo capability, 10 robos, three 4K cameras (two Sony HDC-4800’s and a Sony HDCP43), and two RF handhelds on the field. Bringing the total to 98, 23 cameras covered College GameDay and shows on SEC Network. “Even with the protective measures, this is still a marquee event,” said LaChance. “The company is going to make sure that we have the appropriate coverage.” On the audio side, more than 100 microphones were dispersed on the field and in the stands to give in-venue noise to fans watching at home. – Kristian Hernandez

Super Bowl LV February 7

T

he COVID pandemic has given new meaning to the phrase “best-laid plans”, but CBS Sports and its technology partners at the center of the production of Super Bowl LV were proof positive that one of the world’s biggest televised sports events can innovate, grow, and evolve. “Pre-pandemic, we had a very different plan to where we landed,” said Patty Power, EVP, operations and engineering, CBS Sports. A Super Bowl compound is always large, but social distancing made this year’s even larger. The CBS domestic compound housed 19 trucks and production trailers. According to Mike Francis, VP, remote engineering and planning, CBS Sports, the compound was essentially double the size of what was planned. “It’s definitely a big compound with a lot more facilities to link up,” he added. “And then we need to make sure that everything is available everywhere. When it spread out, we had a lot more to execute on that side of things.” NEP Supershooter SSCBS was the main show and game truck; Supershooter 4 was the tape release. “We have Game Creek Encore handling our studio shows,” Francis added. “Sprinkled in the compound for technology and social distancing, we have F&F GTX19, GTX20, Game Creek B1 for robotics, and all the support trucks that go along with them.” A large flypack deployment was built by NEP Bexel for distribution, transmission, routing, and monitoring. And THUMBWAR was onsite for media management and remote editing. “We will also execute some remote editing in the cloud with Avid and Microsoft Azure,” says Francis. “CBS VP, Post

Production, Ed Coleman is going to use that to provide a lot of the postproduced elements we will use.” Filmwerks and Jack Morton Worldwide collaborated on the concourse set, which was located in the opposite corner from the pirate ship. There was also an exterior set on the south end of the stadium as well as multiple standup locations in the stadium and behind the exterior set. All season long, CBS took advantage of the lack of fans to bring a new look to camera angles and coverage. That look hit new heights during Super Bowl LV with more than 120 cameras deployed. “I think we’ve done a really good job of embracing our environment and the conditions with fewer fans in the stadium and with an LED ribbon across the lower bowl,” said Jason Cohen, VP, remote technical operations, CBS Sports.“We’ve mounted cameras to give the viewer a different look and feel to the game. In addition, we’re just trying to make the game bigger and bolder.” A number of innovations were on display. Most notable, the Trolley Cam point-to-point cabled camera system complemented two Skycams and a Flycam. If there has been one technology story in NFL coverage this year, it is the use of cameras capable of shallow–depth-of-field shooting on the field during warmups and after key plays. “Everyone has been talking about it and is excited about it,” said Cohen. “Obviously, we’re going to continue what we’ve been doing all along in the playoffs, which is to use the Sony Venice camera on a Steadicam.” The sideline Steadicam rigs were also complemented by traditional HD cameras, three of which will had Canon’s CJ20ex5B handheld lens. Those lenses are noted for their 20X zoom and wide angle. – Ken Kerschbaumer

Daytona 500 February 14

F

ox Sports’ live mirrorless camera, dubbed the ‘Megalodon,’ first captured the eyes of television viewers during Week 15 of the NFL regular season and returned for the NFL postseason. For the first race of the new NASCAR season, the broadcaster deployed different variations of it for shots in close-up and far-to-reach areas. “We’re expanding upon the Megalodon that we used for NFL games,” said Kevin Callahan, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports. “In addition to having it on a Ronin-S handheld, we’re also experimenting with it on a DigiBoom [gimbal-stabilized rig] to give us different angles.” The Megalodon became a tech craze in football; in Daytona, both man and machine were in front of the lens. The relatively simple setup, consisting of a Sony a7R IV mirrorless DSLR camera and Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens, was intended to provide a cinematic vibe new to a NASCAR telecast. Since cars blaze down the track at more than 150 mph, capturing the desired shot would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. In an effort to use these stellar live shots, the broadcaster placed the operator in an area with still subject matter. “We’ll try to get those shots that we haven’t really been able to get with a shallow depth of field,” Callahan explained.

The camera was swapped with the Ronin-S handheld, which viewers are normally used to seeing in the end zone of NFL telecasts, to grab tight shots of individuals when applicable and with the DigiBoom, which can be used to hang over the barrier wall for shots of the pit crew during tire changes and other activity. Prior to green flag, the Megalodon was located in the garages as drivers prep for the race. The camera complement for this event hit a grand total of 74. Every nook and cranny of the 2.5-mile track was covered by 16 Sony HDC-4300’s (with more than one at 6X speed), 16 Sony HDC-P50’s, two Sony HDC-4800’s at 16X, and a Fletcher high-speed robo at the finish line. The Sony HDC4800’s wee outfitted with two Fujinon 8K lens to capture crystal-clear shots after the sun sets in Daytona. Prior to Sunday’s race, Fox Sports covered the actionpacked NASCAR Speedweeks leading up to the main event. Among the events was the first-ever Busch Clash, which ran on Daytona’s 63-year-old road course, permitting Callahan and the operations team to deploy a handful of cameras that haven’t been used in quite some time. Having made its NASCAR debut at last year’s race, aerial drone coverage was improved dramatically. Capable of 85 mph, the FPV racing drone, operated by Los Angeles-based production company Beverly Hills Aerials, covered the straightaway near the starting line and other areas around the track. Having experience at this specific location, the operator hovered the drone over the cluster of cars and detail the progress of the race from above. To display synchronization with all broadcast cameras (excluding the Megalodon), Fox Sports installed a CyanView Cy-CI0 to this drone for appropriate camera shading. “We’re putting a Dream Chip camera on [the racing drone] to get the best possible image that we can,” said Callahan. “This will allow our video operators to be able to paint it and make sure that it matches the rest of our cameras. Other times when we’ve put out these types of specialty cameras, we’ve lacked that control to get them to match; they’ve always looked a little bit different. Now we’ve been able to make this a reality.” The heavy-lift drone carried extra cargo: a Sony HDC-P50 equipped with Canon’s new 20X5 lens. More traditionally, the Goodyear Blimp was also on hand for shots near the clouds. – KH Beverly Hills Aerials Drone Pilot Michael Izquierdo (left) and Fox Sports Fiber Technician Brian Obert prepare the drones to cover the Daytona 500.

NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four April 3-5

T

he 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament required an incredibly comprehensive effort to pull off. For the joint broadcasters of CBS Sports and Turner Sports — who have partnered for more than a decade on this event in one of sports television’s most unique production collaborations — a unique execution that included a bubble environment, 10 unique production crews, and a global pool of remote resources came to a head as Baylor battled Gonzaga for the National Championship. Despite all of the differences with this year, game coverage felt quite familiar to the high-powered effort that CBS and Turner put in on the Final Four year in and year out. There were nearly 50 cameras dedicated exclusively to the game broadcast, including the popular RailCam, a four-point SkyCam, multiple jibs, and 16 super slow motion cameras. There was also a strong commitment to robotic cameras this year as there were as many as 27 robos in the total arsenal. These types of decisions reflect the desire for CBS Sports and Turner Sports to “definitely [lean] into technology” this year in an effort to overcome the challenges presented by the pandemic, as described by CBS Sports’ Executive Producer/EVP, Production Harold Bryant noted before March Madness began last month. Efforts on the lens front also drove up the quality of the images being captured for the game broadcast. Canon glass that included some toys from its TS-E series was used with

the Canon C500 Mark II camera that allowed for camera operators to pull in new and interesting looks. “Disruption breeds innovation and creativity, and this is no different,” Craig Barry, EVP/Chief Content Officer for Turner Sports said prior to the start of the Tournament. “Some of the technology is by design, and some is by necessity. We feel really confident that we have a great mix of technology and innovation. We’re trying to create as much access as possible — to the game, to the court – and get the fan as close as possible. With all the social distancing, we wanted to make sure that that priority stayed intact. And that’s where the technology comes in.” On the audio front, enhanced crowd audio was be implemented to accompany the reactions coming in from the limited attendance inside the stadium. There was also a sizeable compound including 14 mobile production units powered by seven twin packs with 12 UPS units. Shoulder programming was onsite in Indy with two sets covered by seven primary cameras. Those shows — and the main broadcast — were supplemented by eight robotic and POV cameras positioned in places where the networks cannot position physical camera operators for health and safety precautions. Those positions included team bus drop off points as well as the bowels of Lucas Oil Stadium when teams walk from the locker room to the floor. On the studio show side, the two broadcasters are working with Ross for augmented reality graphics on the studio set. – Brandon Costa The Final Four and Championship marked the 10th time that the two broadcasters worked collaboratively to deliver the college men’s basketball championship to viewers.

The Masters April 8-11

T

here were numerous firsts at the 2021 Masters Tournament. First, of course, was Hideki Matsuyama’s becoming the first male Japanese golfer to win a major championship. There were several firsts on the TVproduction side as well: most notably, the opening of Augusta National’s Content Center, a new complex of buildings (one for CBS, one for ESPN, and one for the Masters Digital Group) that housed the type of operations typically found in a television compound. “Everybody was really looking forward to working in the new Content Center,” said Patty Power, EVP, Operations and Engineering, CBS Sports. “It’s just incredible to have the experience of being on a remote [production] that size and able to work in a beautifully designed building.” The Content Center more closely resembles a nice neighborhood — with sidewalks, street lamps, even welcome desks inside the buildings — than a traditional broadcast center. “We had management, production, operations, and the VO booths and announcers for ancillary shows — including Featured Groups; Amen Corner; 15-16; and 4, 5, and 6 — all housed in the Content Center,” added Power. “There also was a large camera-storage area, tech management, and a qualitycontrol area for our group.” The Masters was the penultimate significant event during a six-month run for CBS comprising the Masters in November 2020, Super Bowl LV in February, the return of March Madness, and next month’s PGA Championship. “The Super Bowl was the smoothest really large event we had executed,” said Mike Francis, VP, remote engineering and planning, CBS Sports, “but this had another level of complexity and scale that no other event reaches.” Over the previous 13 months, CBS Sports honed a golf-production workflow that relies on personnel working remotely. That was the case for the Masters, for which much of the ARL augmented-graphics team was located in New Zealand and the TopTracer team operated out of a studio at All Mobile Video in Midtown Manhattan. Previous golf workflows were expanded and merged with several new initiatives at the Masters. The compound housed more than 50 vehicles, including NEP SSCBS, which handled second-nine coverage, and Game Creek Video Encore, which handled first-nine coverage. Also in the compound were NEP Supershooter 4 for the featured groups; F&F GTX20, in its Masters debut, handling coverage of Holes 4, 5, and 6; Game Creek Video Spirit, producing 4K HDR coverage of Amen Corner; NEP Supershooter 5, making its debut and housing SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

A new Content Center at Augusta National gave the compound a first-class look as well as improved workflows.

TopTracer and ARL onsite operations; and Game Creek Video Celtic, handling On the Range programming in its first year at the Masters. For many viewers at home, the highlights of tournament coverage included the use of drones, two Flycams, and the Atlas shallow–depth-of-field camera. “I give a lot of credit to the folks at Augusta National for working with us to try new angles and new technologies,” said Jason Cohen, VP, remote technical operations, CBS Sports. “We’ve opened up the show to be able to showcase the course in a way that was never done before. All those angles and all those technologies provide very different benefits but all with outstanding results. And that is capturing the essence of the course and the tournament in a unique and compelling way.” Two drones were used to enable almost continuous coverage. The larger one carried an RF transmitter and sent the signal to the BSI tower receive point and then to the compound. The smaller drone used the RF signal from the controller to get the signal to the controller and from there to the compound. The Flycam units also proved popular, and its effect benefited from the fact that patrons were on the course. The camera rig called Atlas by CBS played a key part in coverage of the final groups on Saturday and Sunday, and Cohen considers the shallow–depth-of-field camera a natural fit for golf coverage. “Golf is a perfect sport for this type of technology,” he explains. “It’s a controlled setting, and you can focus on one athlete at a time. There aren’t a bunch of people at the same time, making the operator try to figure out who to put in focus. It was easy to follow one golfer and create that separation from the backdrop, and I think it was a success.” – KK

ESPN

NFL MEDIA

The NFL Draft has always been a big deal for ESPN, and that tradition continues. For this year’s edition, the production team supported two shows: one on ESPN and College Gameday on ABC. About 55 cameras were used to cover the Draft in Cleveland, including multiple jibs, a JITACAM, drone, a two-point cable cam, two Steadicams, and even a blimp. Steve Carter, senior operations manager, ESPN, gave a shoutout to ESPN Remote Operations Specialists Jack Coffey and Joe Rainey for pulling together a great setup for a Draft that was held in a massive tent along the lake front in Cleveland. “The NFL has a well-thought-out plan here,” said Carter. “The stage and the main theater are amazing with the amount of LED screens in there.” ESPN’s main Draft stage was along the Cuyahoga River with ESPN’s show in the back corner of the field. The Gameday set was in a parking lot along the river next to FirstEnergy Stadium. “We have about 250 people onsite and increased the number of trucks for social distancing,” Carter explained. “The compound has 10 trucks with NEP EN1 A, B, C, D, and E handling ESPN and NEP Supershooter 4 A, B, and C handling Gameday on ABC.” A sub-routing location in the compound managed more than 100 feeds coming in from prospects at home and the 32 NFL team facilities. There were also 22 inbound feeds from ESPN in Bristol, CT. One of the production highlights was the two-point cable system that ran from outside FirstEnergy and down into the back corner of the theater in a massive tent beside Lake Erie. In addition, secondary sets for analysts were positioned with city backdrops. “We had an established facility and a lot of support in

After a virtual draft that VP/Head of Media Operations Dave Shaw called NFL Media’s most challenging operation to date, the league’s media arm returned to a semblance of normalcy in Cleveland for the opening night of the 2021 NFL Draft. With a full production and crew onsite, the event marked a bookend of sorts to the pandemic era, which began with a trailblazing decentralized production of last year’s Draft. “I wouldn’t call it a hybrid [production] as much as I would say it’s the best of both worlds,” said Shaw. “We’re taking advantage of what we learned last year with the [Virtual Draft] and also taking advantage of the many years [of onsite coverage] before that. Having a combination of the onsite and at-home live [workflows] this year makes things more complex, but it also makes the show a lot more dynamic. And I think we’re giving viewers a whole new level of coverage.” NFL Media rolled out Game Creek Video’s Encore A, B, and C mobile units for the Draft production. With crews socially distanced in the trucks, HFI Flex 11 was also on hand to accommodate overflow. In addition, three EVS replay operators and all graphics operators were located at NFL Media’s Culver City, CA, Broadcast Center operating EVS servers inside Encore remotely. “It feels very much like we’re getting back to our standard production model but also incorporating everything about [remote production] that we learned last year,” said Bjorn Estlund, senior manager, remote technical operations, NFL Media. “For a show like the Draft with the amount of elements, the precise timing, and all the movement, we’re going to get a much better show with the production [team] here onsite.” This year, NFL Media produced its NFL Network show onsite in 1080p to align with co-broadcast ESPN and Van Wagner Sports and Entertainment Productions, who managed the in-house show and set up a TOC in Cleveland to manage feeds for the respective broadcasts on NFL Network, ESPN, and ABC. In all, NFL Media shared 120 feeds with Van Wagner and ESPN through an IP gateway provided by Game Creek Video. – Jason Dachman NFL Media rolled out Game Creek Video Encore A, B, and C to serve its NFL Draft production in Cleveland.

MLB All-Star Game July 13

W

hether it’s the star-studded roster of players or the fact that this game was missing from the MLB calendar last year, the 2021 MLB All-Star Game was one of the more highly anticipated exhibitions in recent memory. Fox Sports was once again at the center of this crown-jewel event, with 65 cameras (including two Megalodons and two FlyCams), 4K HDR workflows, a crowded truck compound, and offsite resources from the Vault in Los Angeles. “A show like the MLB All-Star Game is always a huge team effort,” said Mike Davies, SVP, technical and field operations, Fox Sports. “This will be one of the bigger onsite shows that we’ve had [in quite some time].” Soon after the beginning of the season in April, Fox Sports was ready to go full bore with new technologies and workflows developed during the pandemic. Unfortunately, when Major League Baseball decided to move this year’s All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver, the broadcaster faced a bevy of production and logistical challenges. Adapting on the fly and making important decisions quickly, Fox Sports shifted to a new production plan. “The team that we have out here have done a remarkable job with planning within a short period of time,” said Francisco Contreras, director, field operations, Fox Sports. “We started in May, so we didn’t have a lot of time to prepare.” A lot of the trouble was mitigated by physically traveling to Denver to check out Coors Field. With so many production elements happening at once, it was imperative to construct a foundation that set the crew up for success. “We had a total of three site visits [in Denver],” said Tom

SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

Lynch, lead technical producer, Fox Sports. “We try to push the idea that we’re going to be extremely organized for our shows.” Fox Sports used this trio of site visits to plot out their camera map as well as to work with local and state officials to solidify a COVID-19 safety plan for employees in the compound. “The challenge with any All-Star Game is finding those special camera spots and where we’ll be able to best showcase the ballpark we’re in,” said Brad Cheney, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports. “We worked within a condensed timeline and with ever-changing operational awareness from the state and the league.” Shallow–depth-of-field cameras have taken the sports world by storm, deployed at almost every sports event since their introduction last December. Fox Sports calls its rig Megalodon and deployed two simultaneous systems at MLB All Start. One, a Sony α1, worked on the field to capture the customary images of the players. The other, featuring a Sony A7R IV with a Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens and DJI Ronin-S gimbal, was used in a relatively new capacity within the crowd and concourse to show cinematic shots of the surrounding areas. Above the field, Fox Sports debuted two FlyCam systems: one traversing the foul line on the first-base side from home plate to the right-field foul pole, the other covering the other side of the field. These aerial systems featured a Sony HDC-P50. Although the two Megalodons may steal the tech headlines, there were other gems sprinkled around the 65-camera show. At the top of the list was the broadcaster’s presentation of Tuesday night’s contest in 4K HDR. A total of 50 cameras were set at 1080p HDR, including the Megalodons, FlyCams, a Sony HDC-P50 on an RF MōVI camera rig, and another RF handheld. – KH On-air talent were located on a studio set in the outfield concourse.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games July 23-August 8

T

he Tokyo Games are completed and for many the hard work on the Summer Games is giving way to the hard work preparing for the next Olympics: the Beijing Games to be held next February. Dave Mazza, SVP/CTO, NBC Sports Group and NBC Olympics, did take a moment to reflect on an Olympics experience that, for more than a year, has been unlike any other before. “We came in with a bit of trepidation because the extra year of planning saw a plethora of new, good ideas from production to enhance the coverage,” said Mazza. “And then we were also trying to make good on some very aggressive technical initiatives. It made the plan better, but, for every bit of better that it got, it was more daunting as to how we were actually going to pull it off.” Invariably, an Olympics effort is always compared to previous ones, whether it be ratings comparisons, the scale of the show, or the production achievements. Mazza said the Tokyo efforts were about three times more complicated than the 2016 Rio Games. First, a doubling of the complexity around new technologies and workflows like IP, HDR, 1080p, and immersive audio. Another step up was due to the complications from attempting such a large-scale production during a global pandemic. From a production-element standpoint, Mazza noted things like the Friends & Family effort, which allowed athletes to see and talk to family and friends back home immediately after their event. Born out of the pandemic, it was a complicated effort, often taking a tremendous number of worker-hours to simply get a 10-second shot on-air.

SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

Another extra effort that paid off was apparent during the Opening Ceremony. The show was already expected to have a very different feel from the typical Ceremony, not only because fans were absent but also because the teams and parade of nations were being handled in a different way. From a technology standpoint, the big lift this year was to create a wide variety of video formats floating through the ecosystem in Tokyo, the U.S., and Sky in the UK. OBS provided content in 4K HDR and 1080p SDR, which NBC Olympics then intermixed with its own 1080p HDR as the primary production format. But there was also 1080i SDR, which NBC used for all the cable and digital feeds to its Stamford, CT, facility. On top of that, NBC Olympics in Tokyo handed off an HDR signal in the HLG standard to the NBC playout facility in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, where it was flipped to PQ and emitted via HEVC compression. The improvement offered by HDR, 1080p, and immersive audio, he noted, is dramatic and noticeable, especially with proper compression rates and formats. “HEVC compression looks really good at the bitrate we’re using. But we can’t squash it any further, as has happened to HD, because then it won’t look very good. So we’re very pleased with how it looks now.” The pandemic did more than just make people concerned about health issues. It also caused operations to shift out of Tokyo, most notably production facilities for beach volleyball, basketball, indoor volleyball, diving, and golf. And it’s not just COVID. The weather resulted in events’ changing times, venues, and more. And all those details needed to be conveyed to multiple teams in multiple places. Said Mazza, “We could not be doing this [here in Tokyo] without the incredibly hard work of the giant team in Stamford; 30 Rock; CNBC; the NOC; the team in Dry Creek, CO; and Telemundo Center in Miami.” – KK Dave Mazza (left) and Errol Foremaster in Studio A at the NBC Olympics IBC facility.

Field of Dreams August 12

I

t was a beautiful blend of the past and the future as Fox Sports delivered a special, 4K HDR live production of the MLB at Field of Dreams game between the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox from the famous Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, IA. At a new field constructed by Major League Baseball just for this game, Fox Sports deployed a crew of more than 240 people and an arsenal of nearly 40 cameras, 50 microphones, and a commitment to deliver this game in a “cinematic” way that promised to make it quite different from a typical broadcast. “Yes, it’s a baseball game, but it’s more than that,” said Michael Davies, SVP, field operations, Fox Sports.“We want to make this like a movie. So we’ll use cinematic techniques to tell the story. If there ever was a made-for-TV type of event, this is it.” Fox brass acknowledged that this was a unique broadcast for them. The broadcaster has a legacy of deploying flashy, futuristic tech for a big project. However, for an event so steeped in legacy, folks like Davies; VP, Field Operations and Engineering Brad Cheney; Director, Field Operations, Francisco Contreras; and Lead Tech Producer Tom Lynch wanted to integrate technology that would deliver a classical feel, rather than a futuristic one. Among those tools were drones (three supplied by Beverly Hills Aerials), a two-point FlyCam aerial camera system spanning the 1,429 ft. from the movie site to the MLB field, two shallow–depth-of-field Megalodons (each equipped with a mirrorless Sony A1 camera and transmitted to the truck by CP Communications), and a DirtCam buried just off the lefthanded–batters box. Also adding to the classic feel was an entirely new graphics package designed just for this event. Fox Sports EVP/Creative Director Gary Hartley and his team created a package that doesn’t look at all like Fox’s usual MLB scorebug and insert graphics. Although the game was upconverted from 1080p HDR for delivery to homes in 4K HDR, the majority of the show was captured by cameras shooting in 1080p, 4K, and even 6K (in the case of the drones provided by Beverly Hills Aerials). Delivering in 4K HDR, Cheney explained, offers a cinematic look to begin with. “With the grass and the colors, you’re able to capture the contrast that 35mm film gives you. HDR gives SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

you that same ability. I think that’s going to translate across, especially to the viewers watching at home on television. You’re going to capture the feeling of a movie with the crispness, the detail, and the contrast.” To meet the challenge of this production, Fox Sports brought in its top talent, including at the front bench of Game Creek Video’s four-truck Encore unit. The Emmy Award-winning tandem of Producer Pete Macheska, Director Matt Gangl, and Technical Director Paul Harveth was at the front bench. In addition, top A1 Joe Carpenter oversaw the unique audio footprint. The studio team, headed by Fox Sports VP, Studio Operations, Rod Conti, delivered a design unique to this event. The pre/postgame set was located over the left-field wall amidst the stalks of corn. During the game, however, it would “aesthetically disappear.” According to Conti, MLB wanted a clear outfield to add to the minimalist mystique of the game. To accomplish that, the studio set was wrapped in a drape that, when dropped, made the set look like an inconspicuous wooden barn. The set was designed with support from Filmwerks, which had a team onsite assisting with the production. “It’s amazing,” said Cheney, “to see how far we’ve come technologically that we’re in a field in Iowa 40 miles from any city, and we have a gig of high-speed internet to interconnect ourselves to our facility in Los Angeles. The things that people built during the pandemic are applicable here in how we are working. We’ve made extremely large leaps over the past five years.” – BC

US Open

August 30-September 12

E

SPN’s production of both the domestic and the world feed for the US Open continues to evolve, and, this year, it rose to a new level, with court coverage expanding to every court in the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Larry Wilson, associate director, remote production operations, ESPN, zeroed in on the broadcaster’s tennis coverage and saw this year’s Open as an important step after last year’s scaled-down efforts. “It’s nice to be back and great to see the workforce back,” he said. “This is the largest production we’ve done as the coverage of the main draw and qualifying expanded.” The biggest change for tennis fans was that the ACES automated court-production systems was expanded to all outer courts. ACES systems comprised a Simply Live ViBox production system and four Fletcher robotic cameras for each court. “We had 14 ACES positions, and, in years past, that has been only five courts for qualifying, so it is a massive expansion,” said Wilson. “Before the main draw even started, we had covered 224 matches on all 14 courts, and we are now extending coverage to all junior and wheelchair matches. Those courts’ coverage used to pack up after Labor Day, but now they are here through the end of the tournament.” The lack of fans last year gave the ESPN production team and Gravity Media (which oversaw the technical facilities) a huge amount of freedom when it came to new camera locations. For example, last year, Camera 7 was able to be located in the front rows of the stands behind one of the baseline. The return of fans this year meant that that location was not available, but a robotic camera mounted behind the baseline at Arthur Ashe Stadium replaced a camera in the stands.

SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

Camera 9, which was located courtside, was also revamped: it was moved to a small Chapman mount tucked into the first row of the stands along the court. “The cameraman can be in a perfect spot and not be obtrusive to the players,” Wilson pointed out. Another change from last year was that the 100-ft. tall ESPN SupraCam Tower has been moved to a different location because the previous location is now used for van shuttles. “It’s on the exact same line, running over the practice courts and through the grounds,” he said. “And SpiderCam is also back in action on Arthur Ashe Stadium.” The unique challenge this year was not only dealing with evolving COVID-19 protocols but also two massive storms. The first one, Hurricane Henri on Aug. 31, affected the final preparations for the tournament; the second, the remnants of Hurricane Ida on Sept. 1, impacted the tournament itself. “When Hurricane Henri came in on a Saturday,” said Wilson, “our goal was to be on-air on Tuesday, and we basically had to shut everything down and get any hardware that was out on the ground either to higher ground or into cases and containers. On Saturday, all of our cable was lifted, and the sets were strapped down. Then on Sunday, we came up with a plan so that, when we got here on Monday at 6 a.m., we could start from scratch and basically do a set, shoot, strike to get ready for the qualifiers. But it all worked out.” As for Ida, the issue there was the amount of water, which Wilson described as mind-blowing. “The biggest challenge there was the safety of the crew and getting everyone back to their hotels,” he said. “By the time we got on-air the following day, there was only one camera of 172 that still wasn’t working, and that was back up within an hour.” – KK Fans returned to Arthur Ashe Stadium this year.

September 24-26

or NBC Sports at the Ryder Cup, the skies were clear, production plans came together nicely, and team USA put on a performance that energized golf fans across the country. And for Allison McAllister NBC Sports VP, Golf Operations, it added up to a great effort across the board with the PGA of America’s partnership and more cooperation than ever between NBC Sports, Sky Sports, and European Tour Productions. “Things are going well,” said McAllister.“It’s awesome to be here as there’s nothing like a Ryder Cup. The excitement is electric and it’s a very special event and it’s a fun thing to experience.” McAllister said that with more than 500 people onsite safety was the number one priority, and everyone in the compound and on the course embraced the PGA of America and NBC EHS guidelines. While the Ryder Cup matches didn’t tee off until the morning of Sept. 24, the Golf Channel was on hand all week, beginning with coverage of the Ryder Cup Captain’s press conference on the afternoon of Monday, Sept. 20. Live primetime shows also began that evening. “Live From” offered up 50 hours of programming during the week and Marc Caputo, director, remote technical operations, NBC Sports, said innovations included a FlyCam on the first tee that was shared with everyone in the compound. With all the excitement at the first tee, it captured great shots of fans and the unique energy and excitement that defines the Ryder Cup. “We have 16 total cameras for ‘Live From’ including four Telemetrics cameras on the set, a Televator Dolly that gives a jib look, that are controlled from a production control room in Stamford,” said Caputo.“We also have three Robovision robotic cameras in the practice areas and because of the team play we have two rover cameras. And then we also have two LiveU units.” The “Live From” show was cut from PCR8 back in Stamford where there are two EVS playback rooms, two graphics operators, and audio (TopTracer on the range is also

controlled from Stamford). An NBC Newbert flypack was on hand for signal transmission to Stamford with 16 transmit and nine return feeds with Lumens providing 10 Gbs of fiber connectivity into the compound. This was the first Ryder Cup where NBC Sports and Sky Sports were part of the same corporate family. The “Live From” was a hybrid show where Sky produced segments from its studio on the 18th green that air inside the U.S. “Live From” broadcast and vice versa. “At night when the Sky set is not being used, we move the two ‘Live From’ rovers there and host our inside segments from that studio,” said Caputo. NBC’s core production efforts were in ND7 while NEP Supershooter 8 and ND5 were on hand in a support role. BSI handled RF systems for NBC, Sky, and the world feed and Fletcher provided robotics. There was plenty of opportunity for resource sharing with NBC Sports, SKY Sports, and European Tour Productions. For example, course coverage was handled by 63 cameras, including three Inertia Xmo super slo-mos. The camera resources were passed into NEP ESU and made available to each of the entities onsite. In addition to the FlyCam, there was also a camera in a plane, a live drone, and a SteadiCam. Four miles of fiber in the compound and 57 miles across the course kept all facilities connected. Over the years, TopTracer has become a big part of golf production, making it possible for viewers at home to keep track of ball flight. NBC deployed it heavily for the Ryder Cup. Hawkeye servers provided an extra level of redundancy to ensure that shots weren’t missed. Two operators worked remotely from Oklahoma while a third operator was onsite at Whistling Straits. Another technology being used was Whoop. Certain players wore the Whoop wristband that provides heart rate. NBC dropped in a graphic on the first tee that displayed the player’s heart rate in real time as they stepped to the tee which is, arguably, one of the most heart racing tee shots in golf. “It’s amazing to have those metrics that Tommy Roy and his team are pushing and making that vision a reality,” said Ken Goss, NBC Sports, EVP, Studio and Remote Operations and Production Planning. Pinpoint wind speed and direction display were also a big part of the show, as were augmented reality graphics – KK From left to right: Mark Caputo, Bridget Cugle, Allison McAllister, Kate Stefko, and Kristen Moorby made sure NBC Sports operations and facilities ran smoothly.

NHL Puck Drop October 12 ESPN After a 17-year hiatus, the NHL returned to ESPN this year. During the league’s nearly two decades away, live-production technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, and ESPN is leveraging the latest production tools available to bring NHL on ESPN into the modern age. ESPN, for the first time, deployed a mirrorless Steadicam on the ice, a SupraCam aerial system, live RF mics on players and in the nets, a drone outside the arena, and a bevy of high-speed, robotic, and POV cameras. “Our primary goal with the NHL is to bring the game closer to the fan so they see and hear things they’ve never experienced before,” said Chris Calcinari, SVP, remote production operations, ESPN and ABC Sports. “The league has been incredibly open and a great partner in thinking about new technology and new ideas. They are looking to partner with us on trying to bring the fans close to the game, and that has been very exciting.” In a first for a non-exhibition NHL broadcast, a camera operator is allowed onto the ice during dead-puck situations, coming out of breaks, and for shootouts. A skilled skater operates a Sony Alpha 1 mirrorless camera on a DJI Ronin handheld three-axis camera gimbal to create cinematic-style shallow–depth-of-field shots during celebrations and key moments in the game. Another new look for NHL coverage is the smooth, sweeping overhead shots from the four-point SupraCam aerial system. The cable-suspended system features a Sony HDC-P1 box camera and will run along the nearside glass over fans in the stands. Steadicam and SupraCam headlined ESPN’s complement of 35 cameras for its season-opening productions in Las Vegas and Tampa. In addition, ESPN rolled out eight ultra-high-speed

cameras — six of which were Fletcher robos running at 300 fps (a speed shot, between the benches, one in each net, and one each in the left- and right-side rockers). Throughout this season, the NHL EDGE puck- and playertracking system run by SMT is playing a featured role in ESPN’s coverage. Player-pointer graphics will be used live throughout games to highlight movement of players and puck while adding a visual element to analysis. – JD

Turner Sports It’s a new era for the National Hockey League in the U.S. This season, Turner Sports debuted as a national rightsholder for the league. Game production will, over the course of the season, lean aggressively into leveraging player- and puck-tracking data provided by the league and displaying unique graphic enhancements, including dynamic line changes (where tracking data can be used to monitor shift times and display lineup changes in real time) and a virtual power-play clock projected onto the ice (similar to the virtual shot clock used by NBA on TNT). “Our goal is to find ways to inform the diehard fan in ways that they haven’t been informed before,” said Turner Sports VP, Sports Production and Technical Operations, Chris Brown, “while also providing information for the casual fan that is trying to learn the sport.” Onsite, the camera complements rely on super-slow-motion cameras, with more deployed than for a typical show. Of the 25 camera feeds (20 are originated by Turner; five are blue-line cams and net-cam feeds provided by the league), from eight to 11 units on a given night will be high-frame-rate cameras. Coordinating directly with the league on venues and standard game-broadcast operations has proved critical to helping Turner boot up this property in a relatively short time. To help out on the remote technical side, Turner added Eric Grossman, a veteran of hockey broadcasting, as lead tech manager. “One of the biggest things with the NHL is developing all of the new workflows that are going to have to surround it,” said Brown. “[That’s] not just in the remote environment but in the studio as well because of the confluence of highlight operations. There’s tons we have been trudging through to pull this all together. We’re also doing this while maintaining the technical quality for all the productions that we do and giving each property its just attention.” – BC John Buccigross is in the host seat for The Point.

A YEAR UNLIKE ANY OTHER

NBA Tip Off October 19 ESPN ESPN’s NBA team is making significant strides toward a return to onsite productions, but, throughout the 2021-22 calendar, remote workflows will still handle the bulk of each broadcast’s on-air elements. Regular REMI-powered workflows, like EVS replay and Clock and Score, and REMCO (remote-controlled) workflows, like Vizrt graphics, will be housed at production facilities in Bristol, CT, and Charlotte, NC. REMCO is the broadcaster’s remote-graphics solution formerly branded as GREMI. “Our REMI-based executions will feature producer and director teams to integrate production assets,” said Mike Foss, senior director, remote production operations, ESPN. “REMI executions will allow us to produce our NBA content with fewer production personnel and fewer technical assets located onsite.” Along with offsite resources, ESPN is using its normal camera complement and extend use of the shallow–depth-offield camera. Aside from onsite and offsite technologies, NBA games on ESPN’s networks will include numerous production highlights. With history being made in Major League Baseball (at both ESPN and AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain), motorsports, golf, and other sports, professional men’s basketball on ESPN will be covered by an all-female on-air and production team at a to-be-determined date this season. In addition, the broadcaster will once again dive into alternative broadcasts after the success of its Daily Wager Special between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets on April 14 and Marvel’s Arena of Heroes between Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans on May 3. All these new initiatives are testament to the hardworking staffers who work not only on these NBA games every night but on all basketball productions at ESPN. “We’re incredibly lucky to work with so many talented, committed, and accommodating professionals,” said Tim Corrigan, senior coordinating producer, ESPN. “Everyone has been willing to make personal and professional sacrifices, and our team understands the responsibility that comes with covering the NBA, Summer League, G League, FIBA, and the WNBA.” – KH

Turner Sports After centralizing the bulk of its productions at its Techwood Campus in Atlanta and remoting from a truck to the facility for nearly 60 NBA games last season, Turner Sports hit the road again for NBA broadcasts. Deploying NEP TS2 and Supershooter 8 mobile units, Turner plans to deploy nearly all announcers and crew onsite at the arena. “Last year, COVID accelerated a lot of concepts that we were already thinking about,” said Chris Brown, 102

SPORTS PRODUCTION 2022 YEARBOOK

director, technical operations, Turner Sports. “However, because of COVID, we had the unique opportunity to have a lot of space that I don’t anticipate will be available as we push into the new year and start returning to the office. While we’re excited about the technology — and I think there’s going to be a time and a place for us to eventually move to that as one of many different production options — we’re just not quite there yet in terms of core infrastructure and space [in Atlanta]. “What we were able to do last year was prove a concept,” he continued. “I think that was significant because, if and when we have the available infrastructure at the facility in Atlanta to manage things like this on a full-time basis, we now know we can do that.” Turner Sports’ current use of REMI production workflow will be limited to the virtual–shot-clock operator, who will be located in Atlanta. All other crew, however, will be onsite in the truck. Turner rolled out a brand-new graphics package for wraparounds, debuting its revised NBA on TNT look. The package was built on a diamond motif, matching the league’s special diamond-shaped logo for its 75th season. In addition, viewers see refracted light on many graphics elements as if they were looking through a diamond. “We’re coming from a package that was very monochromatic and dark with everything desaturated to a very vibrant, colorful, juicy package,” said Jordan Shorthouse, VP, creative director, Turner Sports. “I think it’s phenomenal, and it’s going to play perfectly into this year’s telecasts. We loved the [previous package], but we’ve been living with that dark package for four or five years and were definitely ready for a change. We just wanted something with more vibrancy, more color, more fun, and that’s what you’re going to see when this package hits air.” – JD

MATCHBOX MEASURES LATENCY... IT’S ABOUT TIME! Point to Point Latency Measurement The new latency feature for MatchBox measures the actual time of flight from the front of multiple cameras, all the way through the broadcast chain, with milli-second accuracy. Complete timing quality assurance, end to end. Whether you need to align the outputs from a variety of cameras - wired and wireless - at a live event or in a virtual production studio, MatchBox Latency takes the guesswork out of the equation and precicely calculates the delays between them in seconds.

Delays between different camera types, especially in different locations - whether around a stadium, virtual production studio or from remote production units around the world - can be quickly and accurately measured by the MatchBox Analyser by simply holding an iPhone running the MatchBox Glass app in shot.

16TH-ANNUAL SVG MOBILE SPORTS PRODUCTION GEARBASE SURVEY RESULTS

D

ue to the pandemic, the sports-production industry’s fleet of mobile vehicles had a rocky 2020 but was largely able to get back on the road as the year progressed. Then, in 2021, with the return of live sports and overlapping sports seasons, trucks have never been busier. Whether it's a traditional onsite production, a REMIstyle show with the truck at the venue and the crew back home, or a hybrid of the two, mobile live-production facilities are in greater demand than ever before. This year’s SVG Gearbase once again documents our industry’s ongoing investment in cuttingedge technology as liveproduction shifts more and more to IP, cloud, and remote production protocols.
