The end of 2021 saw the completion of a multi-vendor virtualised live production concept for the Rolex Paris Masters. The joining of forces from ATP Media, AWS and Gravity Media saw the undertaking of this large-scale live proof of concept. The aim was to utilise AWS-based virtualised live broadcast production in a real-world setting. Production facilities were implemented at Gravity Media’s offices in Farnborough, UK, acting as a ‘shadow’ of ATP Media facilities on-site in Bercy, Paris. “This was a unique chance to use AWS cloud services in end-to-end live sports production across a number of days,” stated ATP Media CTO Shane Warden. Vendors like Grass Valley, Vizrt and Grabyo were invited to demonstrate their solutions in multiple tennis matches. From stand-alone configurations to different vendor combinations, the test made sure to assess interoperability. SERVING NEW CONCEPTS AT ROLEX PARIS MASTERS
