Following our successful collaboration at the Badminton Horse Trials in May, HyperActive is working with CTV Outside Broadcasts again – this time at the 2019 Open Championship at Royal Portrush, Northern Ireland. Ticket sales of 190,000 have sold out for the first time in the history of the event, and it is estimated there will be a global television audience of 600 million.
It has been 68 years since The Open was last staged at Royal Portrush – a legendary golf club that’s home to one of the best and most challenging links golf courses in the world: the Dunluce Links. The Dunluce Links includes a stunning 382-yard, par four 5th hole. It’s a dogleg hole played from an elevated tee towards the ocean, with the White Rocks beach lying just beyond the rear of the green. Golfers enjoy stunning views towards the 15th Century Dunluce castle and the surfers braving the swells below.
148th Open Championship is running from 14 to 21 July 2019. HyperActive will be onsite with CTV for the duration, looking after four Adobe Creative Cloud Premiere Pro suites and EVS integration hardware.
