1, 2 and 3 for Euro Media France-Brazil

1, 2 and 3 for Euro Media France-Brazil

3 is not the number of goals scored yesterday in the France-Brazil friendly, but rather the number of OB trucks deployed by Euro Media France yesterday at the Stade de France for the 14th match between the French and Brazilian teams.

Football encounters between these two nations always have something special about them; yesterday evening, the Portuguese accents and chants warmed the hearts and ears of our team, as did the carnival of Euro Media France-Brazil hats!

Almost 80 Euro Media France employees were used to allow viewers around the world to see the images of this eagerly-awaited friendly (around 90 million viewers in South America alone).

-          OB truck XXL1 broadcast the international signal, with Olivier Denis in control.
-          OB truck XXL2 took care of the private signal for TV Globo Internacional, Brazil’s leading channel!
-          OB truck XL2 provided the signal for Sport TV, the Brazilian paying TV channel.

The Symah team also worked for TF1 on the international signal.
Symah provided the virtual packaging for the match, and the graphics for the new section entitled “l’œil de Liza”, in which presenter Bixente Lizarazu provides a score for a player over the course of the match. 

It should also be noted that Symah is currently providing the virtual inserts for the French men’s, women’s and under 21’s football teams.

They are this week providing the graphics for the under 21’s football match between France and Slovakia.
This match has also allowed the channel Direct 8 to set a new audience record for a friendly match:
814,000 viewers, with a peak of 1,003,000 viewers and national audience share of 3.4%!
