Presently we are producing 17 x 26 minute HD programmes for international broadcast on the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Our partner in this is BBC Worldwide who have been appointed to manage programme sales. 

We completed filming for an Australian based company, shooting all of the European content around a 44 part HD series called Countdown to London. This featured the venues, people and attractions in the run up to the Olympic Games, involving us attending every Olympic Test event.

Our programming and news, both live & post produced has been broadcast on a wide range of international networks including ESPN STAR, Fox, BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky Sports, Sky NZ, Versus USA, Universal Sports, Eurosport, RAI, TF-1, Globosat, M-NET, SABC, Orbit Showtime, Sport TV and more.

We had the honour of being chosen over some very large organisations to produce the live coverage for the BMW Oracle Racing team in their quest to win the 33rd America’s Cup in Valencia. This was a major production over 2 weeks in 3 different locations simultaneously. It was so successful that we eclipsed the host broadcast output in both viewership and content, and became the main commercial vehicle for the team’s corporate partners and guests. And they won!

BMW ORACLE RACING CLOSER

We have a long history and vast experience of sailing TV coverage and promotion.

America’s Cup

We worked with the BMW ORACLE Racing Team at the Americas’s Cup in Valencia, February 2010, producing live programming throughout the day from the team base. You can view our productions at: http://www.livestream.com/bmworacleracing or click on the image to view the BMW Oracle Racing Teams’ final video we produced.

Shows and clips are available as broadcast, both live and on demand during the regatta using the skills and technology of 3xScreens and Livestream. It was a pleasure and honour to work with the team that won the 33rd Americas’s Cup, broadcasting with the ‘Race Day’ concept. One of the themes was ‘Go USA!’, and they did!

Through 2010 we also helped the Team with production of the live online coverage at the 34th America’s Cup Press Conference from Rome, the 34th Protocol Press Conference in Valencia last September 2010, and the TV Evaluation Trials which helped determine the type of yacht to be sailed at the next America’s Cup.

Then in 2011 we were involved in the creation and launch of Team Korea, which became the first ever team to enter the America’s Cup from South Korea. We helped the team through the first three regattas of the new Americas Cup World Series Championships where they achieved excellent results.

In 2007 we helped official sponsor Alcatel-Lucent with their entire broadcast operation, providing websites and broadcasters with material for specific territories.
