Produced by Avalon Entertainment and set for distribution with the BBC. The Button is a new gameshow that sees families compete in a series of live challenges from their homes, against other households across the country.
High Viz Media supported the Video Europe technical production, providing two of the six technical managers. Deploying to multiple locations, we managed the complete technical rig of two temporary outside broadcast trucks built into 18 ton rigid vehicles.
With sound, fixed rig robotic cameras, live TX streaming to London and ISO recording on Quardrus ingestion systems, this presented some unique and exciting challenges for our teams. Our live relays to London for adjudication along with both recording and live VT packages on EVS allowed for quick and easy information dissemination.
Our teams managed and facilitated the logistical set up and commissioning on each location as well as managing technical sign off for the on-site producer. Our knowledge of outside broadcasting assisted in supporting and familiarising the crew on location as well as providing on-site technical management and fault-finding for the various departments. In all, our teams deployed to three locations, covering over 600 miles over three weeks. It was an exciting and novel application of an outside broadcast type set-up.
