Sky Sports sees World Darts Championship clearer than ever in UHD with Dolby Atmos
The iconic Alexandra Palace hosted the 2019 PDC World Darts Championship and The Collectv were there alongside CTV Outside Broadcasts, supporting Sky Sports’ first ever UHD darts event. This challenging OB involved upgrading the regular system to support 1080p50, with a 10GB network and double the storage, integrated with tailored Adobe and EVS systems. It was the largest 1080p50 event to date for The Collectv, and with UHD technology still developing, required a made-to-measure approach to fulfil the production’s requirements. With the tournament spanning over three weeks, and days covering 10am to midnight, our engineers guaranteed three edit suites and three Producer stations for the Sky Sports team, as well as managing multiple file transfer servers.
