ESPN uses VENICE for live broadcasts with more impact

ESPN wanted to bring a ‘filmic’ look to its productions. Working with NEP Netherlands, it installed VENICE cameras during a studio re-build in the MediaArena, Amsterdam. Now, its coverage has stunning depth of field and smoothly blurred backgrounds. “It’s a more cinematic look and feel. That’s what I like, and I like depth in my shots, even in the studio. So we always try to create a lot of depth.” – Henk Van Meerkerk, head of production, ESPN NL
