WilkieTV – a UK-based video production and broadcasting house – has delivered one of their most exciting projects to date, by providing vision engineering and infrastructure for the Red Hook Crit Milano 2016 cycle race.
Set against the urban backdrop of vibrant Milan, WilkieTV’s team of five technicians delivered an eight-camera live production of the hair-raising 1.8km circuit in Bovisa, Milan.
Working alongside commentary, PR and production company, Cyclevox, WilkieTV provided full vision and communication infrastructure, including almost 5km of tactical fiber and multiple feeds to the VIP tent, race and event control areas.
At the heart of WilkieTV’s vision engineering is its flexible and portable broadcast solution, known as the WilkieBox, designed and engineered in-house. WilkieTV can offer clients a reliable, modular and scalable broadcast service, keeping production overheads low, yet delivering quality and efficiency.
For the Red Hook Crit Milano 2016, WilkieTV’s team of experienced engineers and riggers, flew to Milan 24 hours ahead of race day to cable the 1.8km track, guaranteeing that camera testing and rehearsals could take place precisely on schedule.
WilkieTV ensured their cabling plans had minimal impact on residents and worked within the requirements imposed by the local authority and event planners.
