One Weekend At MEDIAPRO: 119 Football Matches in 11 Countries
Last weekend, the MEDIAPRO Group produced 119 football matches spread over 11 countries around the world, providing logistical coverage and a major technical challenge, being the first and only production company in the world to do so.
For this, MEDIAPRO deployed more than 3,500 professionals and 70 Outside Broadcast units, with backing from the technical support of Overon, at football stadiums to broadcast the signals and face the production challenge.
Currently the Mediapro Group produces 11 national football competitions around the world: Spain, France, Belgium, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Serbia, Colombia, Mexico and Chile. Only the logistical, technical and professional power of the MEDIAPRO Group allows it to face a challenge of this magnitude that will only increase in difficulty when the Slovenian and Bolivian leagues restart their competitions, suspended for public health reasons, and when the new seasons in the league begin.
Both the Canadian and Angolan leagues kick off in April. 10 games were produced this weekend in 4K in the leagues in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy and 109 games in HD quality. The MEDIAPRO Group professional crews have developed technological solutions to meet the technical challenges posed by the current health crisis situation in the audiovisual production of sporting events, such as the digital generation of fans in stadium stands and virtual sound, which is already applied in the leagues in Spain, Portugal and Canada and which has been exported to other competitions managed by operators such as ESPN in Argentina.
