For the live coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi and the Football World Cup in Brazil, German public broadcasters ARD and ZDF will again take advantage of the expertise and technical equipment of German technical services provider Wellen+Nöthen.
The Cologne-based company will supply the broadcasters with an IT-based HD production and broadcasting platform. Tailor-made for the requirements of live sports productions, the system architecture is interconnected between numerous locations and designed to offer fast production procedures, a high level of availability and collaborative working, according to Wellen+Nöthen.
A technical team from Wellen+Nöthen will also provide the broadcasters with on-site support during the installation and commissioning phase and will deliver technical support during the sports events.
