Visions Comes To the Crease To Cover The Twenty20 World Cup In HD

NEP Visions (Visions) will field a first class team to provide ESPN Star with the worldwide HD feed for the Twenty20 Cricket World Cup next month.
Visions will cover 16 matches as well as the opening ceremony from prestigious venues including Lords, The Oval and Trent Bridge from June 5 through to June 21.
Visions has been selected by Broadcast Solutions Singapore for the first time to supply host broadcaster, ESPN Star with a bespoke OB solution to cover the event. The company based its decision on Visions' extensive heritage in English cricket and the fact that it was able to supply two large HD trucks for the duration of the tournament.
To ensure that viewers catch every wicket, Visions' solution includes 28 cameras including LDK 8300 Super Slo-Mo cameras from Grass Valley and full HD stump cameras provided by SIS LIVE's Special Cameras division.
Steve Jenkins, Managing Director of Visions, explained: "Broadcast Solutions realised that it would not be financially viable to ship their own equipment from Singapore to the UK and as such looked to Visions as a trusted industry partner to provide them with the equipment they needed.
"Visions were the only OB company with a fleet of trucks capable of supplying the required standard of trucks for the entire tournament. Visions is also part of the NEP group which has greater experience in providing HD OB services than any other company around the world."
