Profanity Delay For SeeSaw Streaming For England Rugby

News Image
Time Delay TV provided its profanity delay equipment for the live stream from the England rugby in Twickenham.

The broadcast was transmitted for O2, and SeeSaw Streaming provided the live facilities for The Media Bunker. Time Delay TV ensured that there were no slips of the tongue in the guest presenters or artists picking up their awards.

Neil Reed of SeeSaw Streaming says: "As the broadcast started at 14.00, and streamed around the world, we needed to make sure that our guests who are known to get very passionate about the sport didn't use colourful language. We worked with O2, The Media Bunker and contributors to either self censor, or take the risk of being muted by the equipment on a five-second delay."

Sky's flagship TV show Soccer AM uses the equipment for the odd slip up of a guest's tongue, along with Channel 4's Surgery Live, Channel 5's Big Brother, ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, The V Festival, MTV EMAs and various live streamed internet events.

Time Delay.tv is Europe's only company dedicated to Broadcast Compliance of Live TV and uses their HD/SD Pipeline machines, which can instantly cut out profanity words and/or pictures.

Time Delay.tv has worked on many other live, reality and entertainment shows over the years including The MOBO Awards, Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, Time Team and Hell's Kitchen.

As soon as the offending word or sentence is heard, a button is pressed for as long as the offence occurs. A built-in reaction time is triggered, and 5 or 10 seconds later the word comes out clean by inserting an auxiliary video/audio source. In a live situation there is no second chance, so decision-making has to be spontaneous and accurate. Time Delay.tv gives the broadcasters this cushion.
