A BUSY FEW WEEKS
Providing Adobe edit systems with full EVS integration together with CTV for the darts at Blackpool, DITs covering the formula one at the Hockenheim ring track in Germany and Hungaroring track in Hungary, plus storage systems for the ashes in Edgbaston. It’s fair to say the Collectv has been busy.
Rob Cross defeated Michael Smith at the final in Blackpool adding a second PDC major final to his 2018 World Darts Championship title, putting him in good form for the Dublin World Grand Prix next month. Formula 1 saw a shakeup in Germany after both Mercedes drivers spun out in bad conditions, Hamilton finishing in 9th place and Bottas unable to finish. Mercedes then swiftly bounced back in Hungary with a risky move to switch Hamilton to a softer tyre in the last 20 laps that allowed him to overtake Verstappen with just three laps to go. During a three-week break in preparation for the next race in Belgium, Red Bull have also taken a risk by making a big mid-season change swapping out Gasly for Toro Rosso driver Albon. The Collectv will also be there to continue to ensure the safe backup of content.
Finally, the ashes in Edgbaston saw Australia overcome England by 251 runs in their first test putting them ahead in the series going into the Test at Lords and The Collectv will continue to provide storage solutions alongside CTV.
