With its partnership with Canal+ now renewed for the next five years, Euro Media France started broadcasting the rugby season on 27 August (with the Heineken Cup, the French Top 14 and Pro D2 divisions and the World Cup in New Zealand).
Broadcasting is scheduled every week, with games coming from six French locations: Bayonne, Biarritz, Bordeaux and nearby Bègles, Brive, and the Paris area for the home games of Stade de France and Racing Métro, and all Premium matches will be shown for the Top 14, Pro D2 and the Heineken Cup.
EMF has been chosen by Canal+ to provide the whole feed for every game of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.
Based at Sky TV’s facilities at the IBC in Auckland, an audio/video node and a post-production sound unit have been in place since 29 August and will be in use until the end of the World Cup on 24 October.
With the support of its DVS and Symah subsidiaries, as well as ACS (the group’s British subsidiary), EMF can offer on-demand features such as content enhancement for matches (using special equipment, slow motion and graphics).
