NTV+, Russia’s digital satellite broadcaster, has chosen Orad’s graphics technology for their live production at the Sochi Olympics.
Olympic broadcasts traditionally require complex productions because of the many simultaneous events. With Orad’s TD Control and graphic solutions, NTV+ will be able to control their productions by handling multiple live video boxes and graphics of the different events from a single user interface, ensuring synchronization between operators and devices.
NTV+ will also be able to control real time graphic tables displaying the athletes’ standings, medals and other information, as well as lower thirds and crawls. Multiple TD Controls and rendering platforms will be used both in the Olympic center in Sochi and in the NTV+ Moscow studio to control the video boxes and graphics. They will also display the graphics and video insertions in 8K resolution on the video walls in the network’s Moscow studio.
Orad will also provide NTV+ with a complete graphics package for all the Olympic events, which will be implemented by Motion Path from Orad’s 3Designer authoring software. It includes tables, statistics, logos, country flags, venue details, schedules of other games and miscellaneous data. The information will be integrated to the Olympic database.
