As partners of Ascot Racecourse, RaceTech is proud to cover the technical and outside broadcast provision at Royal Ascot 2022. The focus is on the five days of premiere action, which includes eight group 1 races and international competition, with attention on the drama and colour of the prestigious five-day Royal event.
RaceTech will have around 70 skilled teams and crew on course, covering each day. A multitude of cameras will cover all the action and festivities from the Royal procession to the bandstand sing along. The RaceTech starting stalls team will be on hand to offer a calm welcome to horses and jockeys at the start of each race. The photo finish technology including the reverse angle system, as is standard at every Ascot meeting, will capture each race finish in close detail. Longines Timing system will be in full operation.
Outspread RaceTech camera crews and extensive outside broadcast facilities will provide live enhanced coverage each day to a multitude of international and domestic media outlets – Sky Sports Racing, Ascot Racecourse TV, Ascot social media production, Ascot’s World feed, various individual bookmaker channels with full availability and support to ITV Racing.
A new addition to this year’s daily output, is a fashion and lifestyle show to be created using RaceTech technical and production facilities. The show will feature highlights from each day with celebrities and special events taking place around the course to be broadcast on all Ascot’s social media channels reaching a global audience.
RaceTech is also supporting the HBA Media TV distributed ‘Golden hour’ show, which is being produced by IMG, as well as fully supporting the ITV sport production by supplying numerous RaceTech cameras and feeds.
After many weeks preparation our teams are proud to work with Ascot and our broadcast partners to produce a first-class service at the Royal meeting.
