News Image
Visual teleprompting company Autoscript has supplied three E.P.I.C. (Enhanced Prompting Information Centre) units to BT Sport for its new studio facility at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
BT Sport transformed the former Olympic International Broadcast Centre into the new home of BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN over the space of 21 weeks, and began broadcasting on 1 August 2013.
The facility includes three large TV studios, seven sports production galleries, a master control room, 20 edit suites, a dubbing theater and an audience holding area.
An E.P.I.C. unit was installed in each of the three studios, each being used on a variety of programme genres including live sports coverage, post-event analysis shows and entertainment programmes.
Andy Beale, Chief Engineer, BT Sport, said: "With such challenging timescales our technology strategy required us to select the right equipment and vendors. Autoscript's prompters instill confidence in our on-screen talent and also integrate easily into our production workflow. The design of the E.P.I.C. with its all-in-one prompter and talent monitor set-up provides many efficiencies, and the units were delivered and installed in accordance with our strict schedule."
Robin Brown, Product Manager, Autoscript, said: "Prompting is a crucial element to any sport or live production workflow which is subject to rapid change throughout a programme. Autoscript systems enable the producers to effortlessly make those changes to the script or run-order on the fly and transfer those changes seamlessly to the prompt output, allowing presenters to concentrate on what they do best. The E.P.I.C. offers all these advanced features and functions that our customers have come to expect of any Autoscript system while also vastly simplifiying the studio equipment required."
