Brief Post-production on the Sports Personality of the Year 2017 live show VTs

How it was done A Signiant Media Shuttle connection linked the BBC Sport archive system up with Timeline, enabling clips to be pushed out directly to a drop folder on Timeline’s Avid Nexis. Across the four weeks Timeline worked on the production, it received 20 Terabytes of media, all of it in AVC Intra 100. The content was spread across up to six Media Composer edit suites at any one time, with Timeline working simultaneously on both the edit of the Sports Personality of the Year 2017 VTs as well as a 60-minute fast-turnaround preview show for BBC1. Dan Piggot mixed the audio for the live show VTs and the preview show in Timeline’s Pro Tools suites. The editing team included Nathan Carpenter, Nicholas Perry, James Lynch, Dominic Robson-Smith, Ricky Wild, Chris Blood, Jon Wright and Adam Mulcahy, and the VTs will be played out live via EVS from the OB during the night of the event.
