Event Cinema on Steroids: Shooting and delivering HDR and immersive audio alternative content to the Big Screen


Event Cinema on Steroids: Shooting and delivering HDR and immersive audio alternative content to the Big Screen

Map Pointer Icon Auditorium
15 Sep 2017

Sport’s largest global event, the UEFA Champions League football final took place in Cardiff on 3 June 2017. BT Sport achieved the mammoth task to shoot and broadcast this event in both HDR and immersive audio live to homes and—for the first time globally—to a cinema screening room equipped with HDR projection and immersive audio sound.

This session will examine the complexities of the multi-camera shoot; understand the workflow-challenges faced by those involved; evaluate the wider technological and commercial viability of advancing the experiential envelope of Event Cinema; and how the boundaries of theatrical and non-theatrical disciplines are merging. We will be screening highlights of the impressive result in IBC’s Dolby Vision and Atmos-equipped Big Screen auditorium.
