Profanity Delay For The MTV EMAs 2017

News Image
Once again, Time Delay TV has supplied the profanity delay equipment to Viacom/MTV for the MTV European Music Awards in London.

The broadcast was transmitted around the world. Time Delay TV ensured that there were no slips of the tongue by the guest presenters or artists picking up their awards.

Darryl Rose, Managing Director, Time Delay.tv, says: "These days, it's not just about the presenters using four letter words, but also about the profanity in the lyrics of songs and raps, which include not only profanity, but also loads of racist terms. We worked with MTV and artists to either self censor, omit or take the risk of being muted by our equipment."

Sky's flagship TV show Soccer AM uses the equipment for the odd slip up of a guest's tongue, along with BBC Music Awards and Big Brother, I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, The V Festival, The Mobo Awards 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 Celebrity Love Island, 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 five 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 immediate cushion.
