Red Bee Media appointed dB Broadcast to design, build and commission the playout services for BT’s new live sports offering, BT Sport. These new channels are available across the UK via various platforms including satellite, fibre broadband and in pubs.
BT Sport has the rights to show 38 live games a season from the Barclays Premier League, including 18 of the top clashes, plus up to 69 live rugby union games each season from the Aviva Premiership, and action from the Women’s Tennis Association tour.
The dB installed system included two reactive suites, four-position media operations desk, two quality control/edit desks based on Avid, and 12 racks of equipment. All were delivered within four months of order.
