Fox Sports Streamlines Commentary Ops for Copa America With Lawo Remote Production Kit

FOX Sports delivered successful commentary remote-production coverage of the Copa America Centenario (June 3 to 26) in the U.S. earlier this summer utilizing Lawo technlogy. At venues in the USA, Cop America was broadcast live by FOX Sports using two recently purchased IP-based Lawo Remote Production Kits, each one comprising two Lawo V__remote4 devices for video and audio signal transport and processing, two Lawo Compact Engines providing AoIP interfacing and DSP, and a Lawo Commentary Unit.

The Lawo kits were in use at each venue, providing stadium commentary back to the FOX Sports’ production area.

With the experience of using IP for commentary and remote production and benefitting from the new flexible workflows, FOX Sports will use Lawo remote production equipment leading up to the US broadcast of the world’s biggest international soccer tournament in 2018, taking place in Russia. For this major event – FOX Sports will add further Lawo Remote Kits on a rental basis.
