ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2018

We are happy to recall together one of the most important events we deliver for you: ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2018.

It went down in history, do you remember why?

After a 66-year-hiatus, the International Figure Skating World Championship 2018 came back to Milan.

From the 21st to the 25th of March, the Mediolanum Forum in Assago hosted 5 days of enthralling actions that see the participation of important stars in the ice-skating sector. More than 190 athletes coming from 40 different countries, took part in the Championship n. 108, the competition of the records.

More than 1.200 workers contributed to such a big event, 300 of them worked just on the fitting of the Arena that requires about 2 Km of wiring. More than 45 hours of live recording during 5 days but the excellent result compensated the hard work.

There was a public of more than 65.000 people coming from all over the world, not only Italian but even Russian, American and Japanese, above all. It was a very passionate public and even the ice-skating stars were astonished and excited.   NVP took care of the whole organization, from the ob van to the event production and distribution to the right holders. We deliver an all-inclusive service.

It was defined a big success thanks to the warm public and the perfect organization and we are proud of this.

That’s the reason why we would share with you the high lights of the event, click on the video to enjoy that thrill.

1st October 2017, the NVP 4K HDR adventure starts

There was the match FC Barcelona vs Las Palmas, and we were working with Mediapro at the Camp Nou Stadium.

The NVP staff was very excited as it was the first match working in 4K HDR: the innovative OB 4. One of the Twins, OB 4 and OB 6.

OB 4 is a triple expansion truck that hosts 22 native video cameras LDX86 4K HDR WCG. The unit can manage several signals at the same time thanks to two separated production areas. The Ob 4 let the customers produce both multilateral and unilateral programs with independent crews.

It was the outcome of an ambitious project and the OB 4 is still among the best high-tech OB van all over the world.

The whole NVP team was excited about the new arrival but the keenest one was surely Ivan Pintabona, the Chief Technical Manager Officer and owner of the NVP company. He says: “In 2017 there were few 4K HDR productions in Europe and no one in Italy, so I was really so proud of how our OB 4 stood out for its great service. It was a thrill! NVP achieved a leading position in the 4K HDR field, meanwhile, discussions about the HDR production are still underway among the Italian broadcaster…”

Since 2017, NVP continues delivering the best 4K HDR productions all over the world.
