2020 IBU Biathlon World Championships Recruits Eurovision Services as Host Broadcaster, Distribution Partner
Eurovision Services will be the host broadcaster and will manage the international signal distribution for the IBU Biathlon World Championships in Antholz-Anterselva, Italy, from February 12-23.
Eurovision Services is showcasing its full-service expertise by providing the host broadcasting for this year’s biathlon world championships, distributing three international feeds to rightsholders in Europe, Asia and the Americas and providing dedicated services to several broadcasters.
The strong community of ardent biathlon fans who are unable to make it to the beautiful resort of Antholz-Anterselva, in the Italian Dolomites, will thus be able to follow all the action on their national television channels or live on eurovisionsports.tv, where they can enjoy Eurovision Services top-quality unbiased international coverage. TV viewers will be brought as close as possible to the action with 44 cameras around the stadium and medals plaza, including a skidoo camera, a drone, super-slow-motion cameras and a rail camera covering the targets in the shooting area.
“The IBU Biathlon World Championships are a major event for us and a great opportunity to showcase our complete service offering, covering host broadcasting, venue services, distribution, dedicated circuits, and digital services. We have deployed considerable resources for the event and will be providing over 40 hours of live broadcast, covering all competitions and medal ceremonies, as well as pre- and post-event footage. We are proud to help broadcasters satisfy the increasing demand for biathlon coverage worldwide,” said Marco Tinnirello, CEO of Eurovision Services.
