Timeline Provides Studio and 4K UHD OB Truck for Rugby Tonight

Timeline Television’s UHD 4K OB truck is being used by BT Sport to broadcast Rugby Tonight in UHD this season in the UK.

London-based BT Sport’s 4K UHD channel has been on air for a year and has just begun broadcasting the new season of Rugby Tonight. This is the UK’s first regular studio-based UHD program. BT Sport chose Timeline's truck for the production.

Rugby Tonight features reviews and previews of the action and headline stories from the Aviva Premiership, as well as the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup. The show is filmed in front of a live studio audience of up to 200 people, with local rugby clubs taking part in demonstrations of play.

Integrating the 4K UHD OB unit into the Rugby Tonight studios involved joining the camera, graphics and media networks. The talkback systems were integrated along with the audio mixing consoles. The truck uses Riedel Talkback, Calrec sound desks, SAM routers and Sony camera systems.

The same dark fiber system can be used to link the truck into the BT Sport studio from any of the five venues in the Olympic park, including West Ham’s new home, London Stadium.
