The number and location of the cameras are now professionally correct, TV operators enjoy perfect conditions for creating the top quality picture. OB van staff can finally focus at the camera settings, sound and other important things for quality broadcasts without distracting to secondary problems like cabling.
«The media complex now meets the highest standards to live sports broadcasting. We can use 15 HD cameras, microphones and commentators' workplaces, flash-interview zones enable us to professionally deliver the excitement of the competition to the millions of viewers. The TV program from the OB van is broadcst to the LED screens all over arena, too. Before this installation, working here was a challenge because there were no camera positions or proper cables in the mission critical spots.
