Avid's MediaCentral platform was selected by Dome Productions to deliver the recent Invictus Games Toronto 2017.

Established in 2014 by Prince Harry, the Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, ill and injured armed services personnel and veterans. This year' event took place in Toronto, Canada, and saw more than 550 competitors from 17 nations take part in a dozen adapted sports. As host broadcaster for this year's games, Dome Productions needed a fast-turnaround workflow to produce and deliver a 48-minute highlight show for broadcasters all over the world just an hour after the events ended each day.

With almost 10 years' experience using Avid solutions, Dome teamed up with Avid and equipment rental company SIM Digital to implement a workflow powered by Avid MediaCentral. To streamline the collaboration of nine editing systems on one shared storage system, Dome deployed Avid NEXIS.

The company's worked together to implement the workflow, which included MediaCentral | Production Management for asset management and the nonlinear editing system Avid Media Composer, in addition to Avid NEXIS.

"The Avid workflow solutions helped us in meeting the tight turnaround challenges the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 presented, by enabling us to work on the content while we were ingesting it," said Seann Harding, Technical Manager, Engineering at Dome Productions. "Avid NEXIS' web interface is extremely streamlined, making it much more intuitive to configure. Avid solutions worked very well and integrated into our production workflow effortlessly."

"In the fast-paced world of global sporting events, production teams need to start working on content as soon as the footage arrives," added Jeff Rosica, president, Avid. "With Avid sports solutions powered by the MediaCentral Platform, Dome Productions had the fast, efficient and tightly integrated tools and workflow solutions needed to produce and deliver content to multiple broadcasters across the globe under extremely tight deadlines for this truly inspiring sporting event."
