The Show Must Go On With Seamless
Coverage And Reliable Scalability

n a business where most of their
work is done outdoors, it's no
surprise that maintaining reliable
and robust signals across large,
geographically diverse events
drives how Broadcast Sports, Inc.
(BSI) prepares for events week to
week.
The company provides wireless
audio, video and communications
technology and support for live
broadcasts of golf, motor racing,
horseracing, rugby, football,
marathons, parades, sailing, surfing
and skiing competitions and a
plethora of other events.
BSI's Intelligent Diversity Receive
System uses proprietary technology
developed and manufactured inhouse at BSI to connect a network of
receive sites throughout the desired
coverage area of a given event,
enabling the operation of various
wireless components. The system
is customised by the BSI team
based on the breadth of coverage
needed, attributes of the location,
obstructions that may inhibit signal
quality, and components that will
operate on the system. By deploying
small receive sites capable of
providing locally diverse reception

fed back over fibre optic cable, no
obstacle is unmanageable.
Certain environments regularly
present challenging conditions that
BSI has become adept at handling.
For many years, the company has
provided wireless technology to
ESPN for the Winter X Games. As
an event that takes place primarily
on the side of a mountain, it's one
where deploying wireless equipment
is extremely beneficial. It's also one
where BSI's team of technicians
must take special precautions
to ensure that their equipment
is still fully functional. One of the
simplest things the team does
is to store and prepare all of the
camera equipment in temperatures
at or near the external temperature.
This prevents condensation from
building up and freezing on the
camera lenses which occurs when
constantly moving between warm
and cold environments. When the
network broadcasts go live, BSI's
technology and RF infrastructure
allow the camera operators to
travel freely around the event with
flexibility and control.
"Our teams take great pains
to ensure that every show goes

smoothly," said Peter Larsson, BSI's
General Manager. "We can't control
the landscape or what Mother
Nature will send our way but we
have strict quality control standards
in place that mitigate the effects
and unique challenges of the venue
on event day. After more than 30
years in the business, we've seen
our share of location and weatherrelated issues so we are always
prepared for the worst."

When the broadcast environment
presents challenges that can't be
addressed with simple precautions,
BSI takes preparation to the next
level by incorporating advanced
solutions into their technology
and designing equipment that
can withstand or neutralise these
hazards. That, combined with great
communication between technicians
and operators, is the key to keeping
everything running smoothly.

Re-Inventing The Sports Broadcast Instant Replay
By Jesper Gawell
Chief Marketing Officer, ChyronHego

W

here
would
sports
broadcasting be without the
instant replay? The instant replay
as a concept dates back to the very
early days of sports broadcasting,
and today it is difficult to imagine
watching a match or game
without it.
Of course, the technology has
come a long way since the early
1950s, when sports broadcasters
first began to experiment with replay
techniques. In one growing trend,
broadcasters around the world are
adding increasingly sophisticated
enhancements to their traditional
replays for live sports coverage.
Instant replays are a fantastic tool
for enhanced storytelling, but let's
be honest - enhancements like
slower-than-real-time presentation
and new camera angles are little
more than window-dressing for the
same action, played over and over

again. Clearly, there is plenty of room
for improvement.
Today's sports viewers are
also becoming more and more
sophisticated, and they're very
open to taking in and understanding
multiple layers of information through
enhanced broadcast graphics.
Live graphics heighten the
experience during live action
and virtual graphics boost the
sportscasters' storytelling ability.
Now, we're seeing the next logical
step with graphics and telestration
becoming more widespread for
enhancing the instant replay.
Traditionally, advanced telestration
and analysis were reserved for
half-time and post-game shows
because the workflows to prepare
the sequences were simply too timeconsuming. This has all changed
with tools such as ChyronHego
Paint, which was designed to make

advanced telestration fast to create
and easy for anyone on the sports
production team to use.
As a result, broadcasters
worldwide are using ChyronHego
Paint in their live broadcasts. The
real game-changer is that they're
using Paint to touch up and illustrate
replays during the live match, not
just the half-time show.
With advanced built-in features
such as calibration-free camera
tracking, chromakeying, and a
unique keyframing interface, Paint
enables users to tie graphics to the
pitch, highlight players, and add
graphics that follows players, faster

and easier than any previous method.
"It's all about enhancing the
storytelling with stunning visuals.
With ChyronHego Paint, users can
get advanced telestration on air as
a second or third replay during the
live production," comments Mark
Bowden, Senior Product Manager,
ChyronHego. "With input from our
customers such as Sky Sports
U.K., we've continued to develop
Paint to be even faster and offer
a better workflow. With Paint, our
customers are re-inventing the
instant replay by adding powerful
new visual effects."
