BREGENZ, AUSTRIA –

As millions of viewers tuned in for this year’s EURO 2008 European football tournament, German broadcast station ZDF, along with Aviom, was there to help bring the excitement of each game to television viewers. The competition of 16 national teams is sponsored by the Union of European Football Associations and is the second largest sports event in the world in terms of viewing figures. The last UEFA European Championship attracted more than 153 million live viewers for each of its 31 matches and a total of 7.9 billion television viewers. ZDF set up Aviom’s Pro16® Monitoring System in its Seebühne stadium studio, allowing broadcasters to manage the incoming audio from the various stadiums throughout Austria and Switzerland where games were held this year. The Seebühne acted as an open air screening location for all ZDF football live broadcasts. Matches were viewed on two large video screens by thousands of fans. The Aviom mixers helped the video editors in the master control room at the Seebühne studio to mix and preview the audio signals that accompanied the video from various stadiums. Aviom’s mixers simplified the process of selecting from numerous audio/video feeds. With the Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers, editors were able to easily select which audio signals were coming into their headphones and to react quickly on important events within coverage of the games.
