January always brings a welcome change in scenery (and temperature!) for Televideo, as we transition into the coverage some indoor sports. The BBL Cup from Birmingham Arena is an event we have been pleased to cover since 2007. This year, our production was delivered to the BBC, with both the men’s and women’s finals playing out in an exciting day of action.
A record attendance for the event of nearly 10,000 basketball fans gave an electric atmosphere, as the Sevenoaks Suns claimed their first ever WBBL Cup triumph, followed by Worcester Wolves dominating the men’s game to lift the 2020 silverware. Televideo’s HD4 was the production hub for this broadcast, which included 5 cameras, a pres position, commentary and graphics from our own graphics department. Fronted by long-time basketball presenter Daniel Routledge, who was joined by some of the best-known faces form the UK game, we were on air from 12pm until 5.30pm, bringing fans of the sport the very best that British Basketball has to offer, from the comfort of their own living room.
