Blackmagic Design Used for Coverage at Slackline World Cup

PostWed Feb 14, 2018 6:57 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that Tokyo based production company UVN built a 12G-SDI workflow for the 4K60p live broadcast and HD stream of the Slackline World Cup Japan 2017. The workflow was built with HyperDeck Studio 12G, Teranex Mini 12G-SDI converters and a number of other Blackmagic Design broadcast products, including the ATEM 2 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K and Blackmagic Web Presenter.

Slackline is a popular new sport where players perform acrobatic tricks over a line only five centimeters wide and compete against each other in dexterity and beauty. The sport has millions of fans all over the world, but is still a niche sport in Japan.

To promote the Slackline World Cup, which was being held for the first time in Asia, Mr. Ikuharu Kanamori, CEO of UVN, worked along with production and streaming company Vivid to create a live broadcast and stream that would show the sport’s incredible action to a both a local and worldwide market. They provided broadcasters around the world with both 4K and down-converted HD signals and used live streaming platforms such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live to distribute the world cup around the globe.
