Timeline’s UHD2 truck is based in Moscow’s Red Square where it’s delivering the BBC Presentation Studio with a simultaneous UHD Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) output for the BBC iPlayer platform.

Six cameras from the BBC’s Moscow-based World Cup studio are combined with the world feed from each stadium at Timeline’s operation in Red Square.

The World Cup UHD HDR games follow Timeline Television’s 4K and HDR work on BBC R&D trials at York City Knights Rugby League Football Club and The Royal Wedding.
