SportOutdoor tv: Italian multi platform for outdoor sports

Sportoutdoor TV is the first TV platform and web in Italy entirely dedicated to 'outdoor' sports. Floriano Omoboni founder of the channel and sports journalist for over twenty years creates and produces TV formats dedicated to those disciplines practiced strictly outdoors: from sailing to boating, to the mountain bike and running and winter sports. Intended for an audience of fans, Sportoutdoor tv programs deal with sports from the perspective of those who practice them, with always fresh, current and original contents.

Sportoutdoor TV revolves around sports and is broadcast on a syndication of over 100 local TV stations throughout Italy, on Odeon circuit (177 dtt), Dinamica Channel (249 dtt) and on the web platform Streamit.
"Sportoutdoor TV's objective is to offer high quality content to an audience of fans: TV formats are all original, written, created and produced by our team of professional videographers and are broadcast free to air, on prime time on different platforms of digital terrestrial television and the web - declares Floriano Omoboni. "Our programs reach a triple national coverage, thanks to the agreement signed with over a hundred local stations of primary importance on their territory. Further advantage is given by the fact that the main local TV with which it was signed the agreement have a LCN numbering between 10 and 19, which makes them readily available. "
'Blue Sport' is the program dedicated to the most important sporting events of the year including, powerboating, sailing, water skiing, mountain biking, rallies of vintage boats, shows and fairs sector.
Many programs are aired live and these complex multicamera productions are based on different ob-van leased by well known services, typically in HD-SDI.
The technical reference for many other recorded programs is the facility "Colpo di tosse" that receives all the shots and edits most programs via editing suites based on Grass Valley Edius 6.5 for PC. It is considered very agile for cuts typical news style. Saul Carassale tech responsible tells us: "The management of such sports events is quite traditional for us with tv cameras and sensors 2/3" mainly model 500 by Panasonic P2 or 2/3" XDCAM. When shot images reach us on files uploaded to a dedicated server via FTP, the material is mainly in HD, even if the SD is still widespread in local TV here.
And then all finished edited products are again available on that same server for delivery and including the distribution of materials for the web.
Unfortunately, sometimes you have to make available different formats and bit rates for different needs.
All the work we carry out is in HD and in fact many times we get a pre-assembled material with timecode on which we do not have to work a lot: rearrange sequences, apply the graphics, captions and audio comment.
For graphics we are using Vis Title to create three-dimensional captions, with key frame movements. We work at 1080 P2 interlaced 50i and also in PAL standard where it is needed.
In water skiing we do the shooting with two cameras, one placed on a boat that pulls the athlete, giving us the main images.
It is connected in SD via radio to the ground so the judges can see very well the action and at the same time the camera records an output in HD on a P2.
Then a second camera placed on the shore follows the skier from side with long opticals and is used mainly for integration.
The camera on boat uses a medium wide angle lens Canon 13X while the ground one has a short telephoto lens Fuji HD 17X8,5 ground. Recording takes place on P2 cards and post production requires eight hours of work."
