Welcome to the home of British Motorsport. High Viz Media Group, along with our friends at Airpass and SSUK arrived at Silverstone with our bespoke, ultra-compact Outside Broadcast truck, OB999, to deliver two days and over 20 hours of live and pre-recorded content on behalf of the IMechE.
The live outside broadcast, hosted by the hugely talented Nicki Shields, took viewers backstage and through competitive events designed to test the motorsport engineering mettle of university teams from all around the world.
Our Sony 2500 camera channels were relayed into our truck where routing and control was provided by our bespoke Blackmagic Design setup. Sublime graphics were integrated with Ross Xpression from raw timing feeds and delivered with impressive on-track camera angles that included the use of a unique tower camera supplied by Alan Wells Camera Systems.
With a team of editors embedded into the heart of the event, replays and GV's were delivered to our Outside Broadcast truck over network supplied by Airpass, led by Colin Hudson. Colin's team enabled us to instantly access replays from across the circuit to play back down the line to our cloud supplier. Enabling taker feeds for our client delivered significant value for money and also minimised the use of limited air space within the Silverstone area.
15 crew delivered a lean, intuitive and fluid production over the course of the event which garnered over 20,000 unique live views whilst establishing Formula Student UK as the highlight of the FS Calendar.
