Woodbine Entertainment, Dome Productions Join Forces on First-Ever 4K Horse Racing Broadcast in North America
“Dome Productions’ Pioneer 4K mobile unit will be on site at Woodbine Racetrack, and be responsible for both the 4K and HD production of the Queen’s Plate. The race will be produced natively in 4K and sent to TSN for its TSN 4K channel (available on Bell Fibe TV and Rogers), as well as DirecTV 4K in the U.S. A downconverted HD feed will also be sent to TSN.
Woodbine Entertainment will surround the track with 16 cameras, including Pioneer’s 13 cameras (all Sony 4300s, capturing content in native 4K), a FOR-A VFC-7000A variable frame rate camera, a DJI Inspire 2 drone, and a truck-mounted gyro-stabilized camera. In the truck, Dome has enhanced its EVS replay servers to handle the native 4K replay.
