The television pictures that are beamed to the world throughout the two weeks of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail and Beaver Creek will be provided by an internationally recognized industry leader as EUROVISION has been named as the official Host Broadcaster of the 2015 World Championships.
Under the recently-signed agreement with the Vail/Beaver Creek Organizing Committee, Eurovision Production Coordination (EPC), the European Broadcasting Union’s (EBU) production company, will build an ambitious broadcast installation to provide an international signal in High Definition for all events for all rights holders.
During the September Coordination Committee meeting, EPC provided a detailed camera plan for the races, with 201 different camera positions currently planned. Beaver Creek will feature 90 positions on the new Raptor ladies’ course and 80 positions on the Birds of Prey men’s racecourse. There will also be 12 cameras in the finish area at all times.
A team of 200 broadcast professionals will join EPC in establishing and manning the positions on Vail and Beaver Creek Mountains. The Host Broadcasting agreement completes a hat trick of open tender contracts that the EBU has secured in relation to the 2015 World Championships, also holding separate agreements for the worldwide media rights, along with the marketing rights.
