During the winter 2018/2019, we were cooperating with International Paralympic Comitee on a live broadcasting of nordic and alpine skiing (downhill, slalom, giant and super giant slalom).
We managed to cover the whole tracks, which were usually around 2 kilometres long. We were shooting on 9 – 12 cameras, sending the signal via our fiber optic cables or via the local network.
It was a great opportunity to explore such great places as the croatian capital Zagreb, beautiful landscapes around Kransjka Gora in Slovenia, italian Sella Nevea, Veysonnaz in Switzerland or Espot and La Molina, both located in west Spain.
We spent basically the whole winter in mountains, since the first event was in early January and the last one was in late March.
The tricky part was to connect everything to a live-timing system. We had to correctly follow the racer’s time, and slow down this time in relation to the level of the racer’s disability. This method was quite challenging, but we have made it!
