No Limits For International Women's Rugby England Vs Canada. 🌹🍁
England Women's Rugby Team inflicted the second defeat in a week on a visiting Canadian side in the Women's Summer Nations Series in September 2023. The programme was distributed live on the RFU and England Rugby social channels and Canadian sports broadcaster TSN.
LIMITLESS delivered full remote and resilient technical facilities for the fixtures, held at Exeter's Sandy Park and Saracens' Allianz arena on behalf of the RFU/ England Rugby Production team.
This was a ground-breaking entirely remote 10-camera production with tier-1 sporting elements including full pitch-side presentation, club analyst feeds, head injury assessment medical feeds, a bespoke match graphics package, full EVS, replay and VT team, big screen playout, remote timing and clock integration, referee communication systems, CCLO (Citing Commissioner) feed, and even remote TMO (Television Match Official) based in our galleries.
A small reactive team guaranteed technical delivery at each venue, in constant communication with technical production based in our spacious innovation galleries.
This was a generator-free production. Absent from the venues was the traditional outside broadcast compound filled with large trucks, comprising of a scanner, tender, generator, and uplink van. Gone were the many crew cars needed for an onsite or partial remote production. This vast reduction in onsite infrastructure combined with the remote galleries provided the RFU with huge carbon savings (circa 70%) over the entire production.
