Mediaburst chooses Ross Video for Wimbledon coverage

This year, Portuguese company Mediaburst (part of Spain’s Mediapro Group) has been providing unilateral feeds to beIN Sports in France and the Middle East using Ross Video’s Carbonite Black (midsize production switcher) to support Wimbledon Championship capturing the action from 19 courts.

Commenting on the Wimbledon set-up, Fernando Costa, Mediaburst’s Production Manager, highlighted the importance of flexibility in a live production environment like Wimbledon. “I travel all over the world covering all different kinds of sports for channels like beIN Sports and for the host broadcasters. Regardless of the sport or venue, time and space are usually always tight and we need proven, road-tested solutions that we know will deliver. The Carbonite switcher has been easy to use and live with and that’s what we want in an environment like this.”

For the tennis coverage, Mediaburst chose a 2ME Carbonite Black (3X panel) to ensure they had enough headroom to manage the complexities of the tournament. “We’re really pleased with the way the Carbonite has performed; our team members with experience of switchers from other manufacturers have been very impressed at the performance of the Carbonite given it’s compact size, and we can see why so many content creators favour it in an outside broadcast environment”.
