WARD started out as a consultant for satellite communication needs, and we have grown to cover all-around solutions for video production.
FIFA Club World Cup 2011 & IAAF World Athletics 2006
At these events, to enable a major Middle Eastern network to produce a live program, we provided a setup of multiple cameras including one at the narrator booth, a production truck and an SNG. In addition, a satellite path in the reverse direction (Middle East to Japan) was arranged for the directors in the production truck to view the actual program that was broadcast in the Middle East.
New Years countdown at Kiyomizu Temple, Kyoto
For a special program on New Years Eve, WARD arranged a production of three cameras to cut between different images of the temple where many people were visiting for the traditional midnight ceremonies.
The video switching was performed in our SNG with its on-board switcher, and the video was then transmitted directly to China where the reports were broadcast live.
