Sports broadcast on TV: how to deliver a vivid experience?
68 / 100

The sports broadcast on television faces the challenge of giving viewers an experience of absolute immersion in what happens in the sporting event.

How do you achieve such a level of proximity?

At Huri we are experts in broadcasting sporting events of any kind. Experience in sports broadcasting on television. In 2015 we have carried out multiple epl중계 coverage such as the broadcast of the 2015 San Miguel de Remo League , the final of the 2015 Spanish Women’s Futsal Cup or decisive matches of the Endesa League and Adecco Oro of national basketball.

The profusion of cameras and microphones

 When the user is in the sporting event sitting in the stands with thousands of people, his gaze goes from a detail to panoramic aspects that occur on and off the field of play. Our job is to place as many cameras as possible (they are getting smaller and with wireless technology) that allow us to obtain impressive frames and do a special monitoring of players, coaches and fans. We take in details from the facial reactions of an athlete to enthusiastic waves in the stands. We strive to achieve images with narrative force, with interesting points of view that turn what is perceived into something spectacular. The profusion of cameras in sporting events is such that for football matches between historic opponents, up to 27 cameras are used throughout the stadium. Something similar happens with the number of microphones. We seek to enrich the perceived sound universe. What do the narrators and commentators say, the public, the coaches, the referees. A quality and surround sound helps to better understand what happens in the field of competitions.

Accuracy thanks to repetitions

Replays allow the viewer to closely observe what happened. It is an added value offered by broadcasting. With a repetition the spectator clarifies ambiguous situations, relives plays or spectacular movements and enjoys new lights on the decisive moments.

Thanks to super slow motion cameras and digital repetition systems (Digital Replay Systems technology) it is possible to recover any sequence slowly. Replays, and sometimes from different points of view, are a necessary ingredient in any sports broadcast

These favor the identification of the spectators with the athletes, and that is what we are looking for, that from the tranquility of their home each fan vibrates with emotion.

Eye-catching and easy-to-generate graphic elements

 Any sports broadcast includes graphics of the timing of the competition, results, tables of competitors… they are informative support elements that are generated more and more easily and data in real time. The graphics aim to multiply the spectacular nature of the events and provide them with a clarifying context.

The show can’t die

The retransmission of sports events is a subgenre within audiovisual production that requires the participation of many resources (mobile production units and DSNG , and human equipment ) that travel to the place of the sporting event. A job that involves taking care of the details to cover the events continuously. The future of sports broadcasting is difficult to predict. We dare to say that stereoscopic technology is an interesting area to keep an eye on.

Few sporting events in Spain have been broadcast in 3D, but we know that the future tends to do so as they enrich the conception of production in terms of narrative and most importantly: they give the viewer a vivid experience.
