FFT French Open

What we did

Gravity Media was contracted by the FFT in 2008 to produce a wide range of services from Roland Garros. These services were developed and extended over the next 10 years to include: production of two world feeds – International Super Signals (ISS) Prime and Extra; a daily ready-to-air highlights programme; individual match edits; content for digital and big screens; and other supporting services for the FFT and its broadcasters onsite.

What we used

Gravity Media’s producers and technical experts worked closely with the FFT to design a complex but flexible and robust technical hub that met all requirements. Underpinned by EVS-Avid workflows, the technical infrastructure supported two galleries and several edit suites required to deliver ISS Prime and ISS Extra to the FFT’s rights-holders around the world. The feeds came complete with English commentary, and the setup enabled fast-turnaround match highlights and the crafted daily highlights programme, along with a host of other content.

Outcome

The ISS Prime and Extra were acclaimed as among the best world feeds in any sport. The French Open was one of the world’s first high-profile events to introduce a second, complementary world feed to showcase its best action. Input Media’s talented team of producers, engineers and technicians made it happen.
