The British Open 2019 - Royal Portrush
The world’s best players descend on the small town of Portrush in County Antrim this weekend, for the 148th Open, as it returns to the Royal Portrush Course for the first time in 68 years. All eyes are on local hero Rory McIlroy after a poor start in the opening round seeing him score 79, eight-over-par and leaving him in danger of not making the cut this weekend. Working for CTV, alongside NBC and European Tour Productions, The Collectv has installed and is guaranteeing a powerful Avid interplay and edit system including Nexis Storage, EVS integration and all relevant periphery.
Elsewhere, The Collectv have been busy supplying DITs and live media managers for Formula 1 ensuring the safe handling of media assets for several broadcast clients at the Silverstone Grand Prix last weekend. The eventful race, full of crashes and drama, meant Silverstone had the most rushes we have had to backup in the F1 Calendar so far!
