Following the successful inaugural European Games in Baku in 2015, the second European Games have just concluded in Minsk, Belarus.
More than 4,000 athletes from 50 countries competed across 10 days in 200 different medal events. Of the 15 sports and 23 disciplines, 10 provided qualification for Tokyo 2020, and among the Olympic regulars such as athletics and cycling, athletes were also vying for honours in ‘new’ sports such as beach soccer and sambo.
Gearhouse Broadcast France were heavily involved during the Games, preparing, installing and supporting the IBC media workflow, from ingest to logging, editing and playout. We also supplied a number of slow-motion cameras packages. All in all, 4.5 tonnes of equipment was shipped to the Belarus capital, complete with the Gearhouse Broadcast supporting team.
The Games began on Friday 21st June, and closed on Sunday 30th.
