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