This sports center has deployed a complete audiovisual production system based on Blackmagic Design products to perform such activities at its academy, which is part of the training center and youth development City Football Academy.
Audiovisual production platform that Manchester City Football Club has implemented in the Academy Stadium, a sports venue that is part of the training center and youth development City Football Academy, includes four units Blackmagic Studio Camera, a mixer Atem 1 M / E Production Studio 4K and a switching matrix Smart Videohub 40 × 40.
These systems are used not only to deliver content through those located on the side of the pitch during the matches of the Women's League and the Under-21 and Under-23 categories digital displays, but in the transmission of games on Facebook Live .
This system designed and built by Timeline TV to obtain two signals: one is sent to the digital display 15 m2 located in the stadium and to the various broadcasters, while the other is transmitted through the channels of the club.
As Paula Livsley, production manager of Manchester City, "the installation of this platform should reflect the way the coverage of sporting events has evolved over recent years he explains. We needed a solution that would allow us to share the action on the field, not just spectators at the Academy Stadium, but with all international fans in different parts of the world. "
In addition, the AV production team conducts interviews with players and produces exclusive additional content that are broadcast before and after each match through the channels of Manchester City.
“Las unidades Studio Camera pueden colocarse sobre un trípode o sujetarse a un poste, y además nos sirven para captar imágenes excepcionales tanto en el estadio como durante las grabaciones en el estudio. Dentro del recinto deportivo usamos fibra óptica para conectar las cámaras al centro de producción. Cada una de las ubicaciones cuenta con un Atem Camera Converter y, a su vez, el Atem Talkback Converter 4K situado en la sala de control permite comunicar con los operadores y activar las luces piloto mediante dichas conexiones”.
The distribution of signals within the enclosure is performed through a matrix Blackmagic Videohub Smart 40 × 40, which is the axis of the optical infrastructure of the stadium. In addition, the parties transmitted by Facebook Live attract large audiences and the club aims to continue increasing.
"This system shows the various distribution channels that we can use to which fans have the chance to see their team in action -underlines Livsley-. The solution that we created with Blackmagic systems not only gives the flexibility required in a traditional stadium, but allows us to meet our needs as content producers. "
