NEP UK has won a further four year broadcast services partnership with Wimbledon Broadcast Services (WBS) to provide the technical broadcast delivery for the Wimbledon Championships.
At the 2022 Championship, every match across all 18 courts was televised for the first time, including Centre Court in UHD High Dynamic Range. Eleven of the courts at Wimbledon were crewed by camera-operators and seven used a hybrid of operators and NEP’s Tr-Ace System.
NEP UK has also provided both host and unilateral coverage to the BBC, and other broadcasters for Wimbledon.
Working with the All England Club, NEP UK used 100+ camera positions, and 40 EVS servers producing coverage of every court.
Sony 3500 Cameras were deployed across site to capture all the action live in UHD from the courts. All courts have been delivered in 1080 SDR 709 with Centre Court also available in 1080p HDR 2020. NEP’s two flagship units Venus and Ceres were used on Centre and No.1 Court.
Simon Moorhead, Managing Director, NEP UK Broadcast Services, NEP UK continues, “NEP UK are all incredibly proud of our long and successful partnership with the All England Club in delivering The Championships. This is one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world, that has the eyes of the world watching. Our partnership completely transcends the pure provision of technical broadcast equipment and services. It is about our proven, collective understanding and collaboration in the pursuit of quality in all parts of the process, and our absolute commitment to provide a rock-solid operation, with agility and flexibility, whilst continuously innovating and improving. I am incredibly proud of the entire NEP team who work tirelessly to deliver Wimbledon and I, like the rest of the NEP team, are excited and honored to have been awarded this new contract from 2023 to 2026.”
