July 6-10 saw the cream of the world’s athletics community descend on Amsterdam for the 2016 European Athletics Championships. Whilst NOS served as the host broadcaster and United provided the core broadcast facilities, Broadcast Rental handled the extensive RF requirements.
More than 330 crew members worked on the event, which took place at a variety of locations throughout the city, including the Olympic Stadium, Museum Square and Vondel Park.
At the Olympic Park, the RF infrastructure delivered multilateral 6-way diversity capabilities with Domo PRO-RXD receivers. Specific equipment used included: Sony PDW P1 steady-cams, with Domo H.264 transmitters and Videosys camera control; one Movi Rig with Canon C300, with Domo Solo Nano transmitter and camera control developed in-house by Broadcast Rental); one Sony PDW P1 in Flyline, with Domo H 264 transmitters and Videosys camera control; and one Sony HDC-2500, with Domo H 264 transmitters and Videosys camera control.
