Trickbox TV delivers Legendary coverage of Esports event
Trickbox TV provided facilities helping deliver BBC online coverage of League of Legends, a popular online multiplayer strategy game, throughout its annual world esports championship competition this year. Following ten teams from across Asia, Europe and North America, the top three advanced to the quarter finals that were hosted at Wembley Arena in London on 15th October 2015.
Covering the competition for the first time, the live event was broadcast by BBC Sport on BBC Three through transmission to Salford BBC via IP which was streamed to the online channels. Trickbox TV built a temporary flyaway control room, with talkback to BBC Salford and a listen feed of talkback from the host broadcaster in LA.
With three incoming host broadcaster feeds, Trickbox TV location facilities aided in providing coverage of the event using two Sony HDC-1500 camera channels, an EVS and other equipment including a Trilogy Messenger talkback system.
“With such a wide global audience for the League of Legends championships, it’s important that there is online coverage for anyone across the world to access,” said Liam Laminman, Managing Director of Trickbox TV, “It’s a delight to be able to provide broadcasting services for such an exciting and popular live event.”
