World Athletics Championship

Design and installation of technological solutions

In August 2013, Russia hosted the World Athletics Championship for the first time. It was held in the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow.

At the request of the All-Russian Athletics Federation leadership, we had to provide the production technology for three independent programmes to be delivered to the stadium’s large screens so that thousands of journalists from across the world, and more than a hundred television channels could cover the championship. The task was accomplished with the help of technical solutions based on sports cameras, which provided the display of the competitions on the stadium screens in real time. The sound path was also set up.

The project was implemented in the shortest possible time. The customer noted the coordinated work of the engineering team, the high quality of integration, the effective organisation of intercom between the production teams, commentators, event management committee and the host broadcasters. “This was the best set-up in my experience” observed the main producer of the presentation of the competition, Mr Florian Hefferle. “I remember how successful our visit to OKNO-TV was.” “We were very lucky with our choice of integrator”, said Mikhail Yakovlevich Butov, the Secretary General of the All Russian Federation of Track and Field Athletics, the head of the competition, expressing his view.
