ISLAMABAD: The start of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is upon us and host broadcaster and ICC global media rights partner is gearing up its production to make sure that the 2.5 billion people who have access to the live pictures from more than 200 territories around the world will enjoy an unrivaled spectator experience on their viewing platforms.
It won’t be possible for all cricket fans to be in the venues to watch the action first-hand so the next best thing will be ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 broadcast’s array of on-air enhancements and compelling and new graphic presentation to accompany the insightful and trusted voices of its expert group of commentators.
The production of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be in the High Definition (HD) format and audiences will enjoy the most riveting experience as each and every match will be covered by at least 29 cameras, including Ultramotion cameras, Spidercam at 13 matches and the drone camera at all the knock out matches.
Technology in use includes Real Time Snicko and LED stumps. Other innovative features will be introduced for the latter stages of the event, icc-cricket.com reported.
For the first time ever cricket will be covered using cutting edge 4K technology. To bring its viewers closer to the game, broadcasters will produce live coverage of seven matches in 4K, including the semi-finals and the final.
The live broadcast will feature more than 30 commentators, past ICC Cricket World Cup winners and legends of the game from the leading participating countries.
ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “We expect the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 to be the most viewed cricket event in the history of the game. With a great line up of commentators and innovative features, it promises to be an event to remember and the biggest and greatest sporting event anywhere in the world this year.”
