Timeline Television Help Deliver IAAF World Championships Coverage

News Image
Timeline Television is providing OB and RF services for FilmNova for the IAAF World Championships Marathon and Race Walks in London this month.

The marathon, which was held on Sunday 6 August, commenced and finished at Tower Bridge in the capital city, and Timeline's Sony HDC-4300 2/3 inch Ultra HD 4K cameras with Fujinon Ultra HD lenses captured the action from the start and finish area.

Timeline will also be supplying four remote OB trucks to feed more cameras back to the main OB at the start, while three wireless motorcycle-mounted cameras, a lead car camera and a helicopter capture the action on the move. Timeline relays the links from the bikes and the car via a fixed wing aircraft, circling overhead at 25,000 feet.

All the RF facilities are monitored and controlled from Timeline's 4K satellite and production truck, RF1. The truck provides a dual 2.4m dish facility capable of delivering multiple UHD and HD uplinks.

Timeline's IP 4K HDR outside broadcast truck – UHD2 – will be on site to provide the live host broadcast coverage of the Marathon and Race Walks.

On Sunday 13 August, the 'Festival of Race Walks' will be staged on The Mall, St James's Park. The 20km races will see athletes perform 10 laps of the course, whilst the 50km race will consist of 25 laps of the circuit.
