Timeline Provides OB Facilities For Rugby Tonight

News Image
Timeline TV has provided studio and 4K UHD OB truck facilities for BT Sport's new season of Rugby Tonight. The show is the UK's first regular studio-based UHD programme.

The live rugby magazine show is presented by Craig Doyle, Martin Bayfield and Sarra Elgan. It aims to both entertain and inform viewers, as well as including reviews and previews of the action and headline stories from the Aviva Premiership, European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup. Filmed in front of a live studio audience, Rugby Tonight also enables local rugby clubs to take part in demonstrations of play on the studio pitch, while celebrities and guests participate in studio challenges.

BT Sport designed and built a production and studio hub with Timeline Television in 2013, while the broadcaster's 4K UHD channel has been on air for a year, transmitting UK location-based sport as well as the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. BT Sport made the decision to use Timeline's UHD 4K OB Truck to broadcast Rugby Tonight in UHD this season.

Integrating the 4K UHD OB unit into the studios involves joining the camera, graphics and media networks. The talkback systems are meshed along with the audio mixing desks. The production team expect the sound and vision feeds that would be provided in a studio gallery, and this has been achieved by designing the 4K UHD OB Truck with the BT Sport studio compatibility in mind. Both environments use Riedel Talkback, Calrec sound desks, SAM routers and Sony camera systems.

This same fibre system can be used to link the truck into the BT Sport studio from any of the five venues in the Olympic park, including West Ham's new home, London Stadium.
