Total Engagement with 3Zero2 TV, Discovery Italia and Eurosport for the 2018 Winter Olympics

Six months of preparation, three shifts per 24 hours a day with a team of 40/50 people each, a technical crew of about twenty people and investments in infrastructure and equipment for 700 thousand euros.

Really important numbers for a truly impressive engagement, the production for Discovery-Eurosport concerning the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea.
The engagement is signed by 3Zero2 Tv, an Italian company from Cologno Monzese, well known in the broadcast market for no less important past than today's adventures.

3zero2 was founded in 2002 for the management of a production center for Disney Channel, which includes the management of playout, shooting studios and all channel operations.
Over the years it has evolved, although maintaining its original nature as a production company and, becoming part of the Euromedia group, today it boasts even more complete facilities.
The configuration as a video service includes a very wide range of technical equipments, including two OB-Vans, post-productions, Eng crews and emission center.
3zero2 today has the entire broadcast supply chain, starting from the conception of a TV program up to live broadcast. So, ideation, topic development, production, recording, post production and airing.
Among the best known customers, besides Disney, are SKY, Mediaset, Juventus Channel, Torino Calcio and Infront, with many other important voices in the television production.
The technical structure has two OB-Vans trailers dedicated to Italy, of the same size, equipped with 22 cameras and 7 EVS each.
About thirty post-production suites with Avid are available in the Cologno production center, of which about ten are normally engaged in Mediaset tv programs.
The MCR structure manages the broadcasting of 32 TV channels.
There are two sound and dubbing post suites, while ten comment booths were dedicated to Eurosport1 Italia and Eurosport2 Italia for the Olympics.
The great commitment to the Olympic Winter Games required a large expansion of the structures and the creation of two technical nodes, a sub-MCR area and a new operating gallery connected to the post-production suites. These in the Olympics worked 24 hours and could share the media resources of a giant MAM, from which to draw clips to prepare stories and productions.
The extension of the international distribution systems to and from additional ingesting / post-production systems for the creation of live or "time-shifted" content deserves further study.
We just mention from Korea there were 50 feeds that were ingested on EVS and were sharing resources to prepare all the transmissions on air.
The new shooting set, entirely dedicated to the editorial / production structure of Eurosport, was set up in dedicated spaces in Studio 4 in Cologno; it worked to follow live productions at night and in time shifted by day. Some commentators were in Korea and others in the Cologno studio.
In the studio were 4 cameras, two 9x9 ledwall screens on 55" monitors and a set design that recalled the Olympics logo.
This same set will still be used by Discovery Eurosport on anticipated broadcasts for the upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Also the new gallery set up for the event worked on three shifts a day with the permanent presence of a director, two assistant directors, a video graphic technician provided by the subsidiary EBD, two EVS technicians, two sound engineers, a control room, a technical manager.
In the study, in addition to the 4 operators, worked a study assistant, a microphonist, a photography director, make-up artists, hairdressers, and seamstress.

Massimiliano Anchise from 3Zero2 Tv provides us with other technical details: "We were able to create a very complex system in a very short time, accepting the challenge of Discovery Eurosport with great serenity and as a single customer. We took care of everything ... even catering!
"We managed two MCR nodes creating the necessary redundancy, realized the sharing of A / V systems with hybrid technology, traditional baseband + TCP / IP; the system for the management of the media assets consisted of a network of EVS XT3 ch. MAX servers (codec INTRA + GOP + LOW) to which were added EVS IP-Director / X-Square / X-File3."
"We optimized the sharing of internal TCP / IP networks serving the comment stations (DANTE / AES67), implemented the sharing of TCP / IP communication systems between the nodes and from/to Korea and the real-time TCP/IP connection to the Eurosport issuing servers."
"The system was based on ROSS ULTRIX hybrid matrix, HDSDI baseband 64x64 + MADI 128x128, capable of generating 17 levels of independent operation A / V, multiviewer, embedding / de-embedding, audio shuffling. The video switching was entrusted to the SAM KULA v.3 mixer. The audio mixing engaged was the DIGICO D1-live. The synchronizations and processors were LAWO V8-pro. For communications we relied on RIEDEL ARTIST 32 + 128 IP optical / electric transport systems EVERTZ + baseband BARNFIND."
