Champions Ice Hockey League
Live broadcast for HBS
Televideo were delighted to be rinkside again this month, with ice hockey back in our repertoire of sporting broadcasts. Working for Host Broadcast Services, Televideo provided OB and production facilities for the UK legs of the Champions Ice Hockey League. Between 31st August and 7th November, our crews covered all Cardiff Devils and Nottingham Panthers home games, typically with a 7-camera specification. Televideo’s graphics department integrated the official tournament graphics set to work automatically with the scoring systems in place at each venue, delivering stunning graphics via our VizRT systems.
The production was taken by Premier Sports and FreeSports in the UK, as well as delivering the world feed to broadcasters across Europe. It was a great tournament for British teams, with the Nottingham Panthers becoming the first ever UK club to progress through to the knockout stages.
