Leicester City Victory Parade featuring multiple ADI screens and a 7 camera Event OB
21 May 2016
ADI supplied multiple LED screens for the event and a full outside broadcast solution, with cameras spanning the city, to ensure none of the 250,000 fans missed any of the action as Claudio Ranieri and his team paraded the Premier League trophy.
ADI’s outside broadcast team filmed and produced live footage of the parade as it made its way through the city, as well as supplying the signal distribution linking live cameras back to the park. A production team was also on-site to edit and distribute highlights to external broadcasters.
The large scale event, which ended with a surprise live performance from Kasabian, saw three cameras positioned in Victoria Park. Another four cameras along the route captured the parade as it passed, with some in hoists with long lenses while others in the crowd recorded interviews and captured the atmosphere of the day.
ADI worked closely with the football club and council to supply a team of 18 staff who were on site from early morning the day before the parade to rig and test the extensive infrastructure required.
The cooperative working between everyone on site, including international broadcasters, helped to deliver an event that will forever be remembered in Leicester.
