O2 TV Sport, the number one sports broadcaster in the Czech Republic, has modernised its studio with the latest technology for the start of the new season. From the new multifunctional production facility, O2 TV Sport broadcasts the accompanying programmes to the football broadcasts of the UEFA Champions League, the Fortuna:Liga, the highest Czech league, but also ice hockey, tennis and various martial arts.
To present its viewers with exclusive content in visual quality that meets the highest standards, O2 TV Sport commissioned our Czech partner AV MEDIA SYSTEMS to upgrade the studio design with state-of-the-art technology. In a record time of 60 days, AV MEDIA SYSTEMS succeeded in bringing the studio set up to date by installing large, high-resolution LED video walls, colour-changing LED backlights, and last but not least, implementing VR/AR technologies. The revised graphic design for content playout, together with the LED lighting for each format or sport, ensures a characteristic look for the studio at the touch of a button.
In addition to the live broadcasts, the large LED surfaces are used by the presenters and experts in the studio for match analyses and the presentation of replays and slow-motion sequences. A total of 60 Leyard TVF cabinets with 1.2mm pixel pitch are distributed over two larger video walls on the sides and a smaller one in the centre. The high resolution is also appreciated by the cameramen in the studio, as it avoids disturbing image effects during camera movements and close-ups. Right from the start of broadcasting, the new studio was very well received by the presenters and experts in the studio. The modern look, the innovative possibilities for analysis in combination with the virtual reality elements, however, also ensure an enhanced television experience, especially for the station's viewers.
AV MEDIA SYSTEMS chose the Leyard TVF series not only because of the solid partnership between the two companies, but also because of the good reputation this product series enjoys in television studios worldwide, the limited lifetime warranty and the user-friendly front-serviceability. Especially with the short project duration, the short reaction time of the production and service departments of Leyard Europe was another factor, which ensured a smooth installation process.
“Our mission is to bring the best sport experience to our viewers, from the exclusive sport events worldwide. And it is great that this studio supports our mission with the top technology providing us with all the current technical conveniences we can imagine.”
