Timeline Television will provide outside broadcast (OB) services in Ultra HD (UHD) for BT Sport at the Europa League Final between Liverpool and Sevilla in Basel, Switzerland this evening - the first time the Europa League Final has been broadcast in UHD.
It is also the first time Timeline’s UHD 4K truck has broadcast from mainland Europe.
Timeline Television managing director Daniel McDonnell said: “Timeline, in partnership with BT Sport, have been pushing the limits of Ultra HD 4K since we launched our UHD 4K outside broadcast truck ten months ago.
“We have worked with the finest manufacturers in the industry to find the best solutions to bring this technology to life. We’ve been helping BT Sport bring cinematic experiences to fans living rooms ever since, and I’m excited our OB truck and talented staff play a key role in enabling BT Sport viewers to experience these historical live football moments better than ever.”
Timeline Television’s UHD truck will also provide 4K coverage of the 47th FA Cup Final on 21 May between Crystal Palace and Manchester United at Wembley Stadium. This will be followed the next day by the FA Trophy between Halifax Town and Grimsby Town and the FA Vase Final between Hereford and Morpeth Town.
