Millions of people around the world tuned in for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup Finals in France between the USA and Norway. After the huge success of FOX Sports’ innovative broadcast of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, our panelists collaborated with FOX Sports to deliver new remote production capabilities and greater efficiencies for this year’s women’s final. Boasting more than twice as many streams as the 2018 World Cup, these panelists discuss how they enabled production teams in Los Angeles to begin editing multiple camera feeds within less than 10 seconds of the live action for highlights, playback, and bridge programming and employed new capabilities such as real-time direct-to-cloud archiving and more extensive—yet consolidated—monitoring.
