TV 2 Norway centralizes Rio Summer Games production
Exclusive studio in the athletes’ village will be controlled from Norway production facilities.
Norway’s largest commercial broadcaster, TV 2, has been in Rio de Janeiro for the last few weeks preparing for the summer games that begin this Friday. The broadcaster has 60 personnel in Rio set to cover the games. They will add Norwegian commentary to more than 25 different sports during the event as well as provide match analysis and create original stories.
Over 2,000 hours of streaming action
Viz Virtual Studio. Two broadcast channels, TV 2 and TV 2 Sport, will broadcast the biggest events. But VOD/streaming platform TV 2 Sumo will broadcast most of the action with more than 2,500 hours of live sports content.
Groundbreaking remote production
Viz Mosart will add in Norwegian commentary, graphics – rendered by Viz Engine – and switch all the pre- and post- analysis shows that will be taking place from the studio in Rio.
