ITM - 400 V8 Supercars 2010

Undoubtedly, the biggest sporting event to be staged in New Zealand on a regular basis.
It's spread-out nature & shear size made it a logistically intense event to cater for.
A prerequisite from event organisers was encryption of the "live race feed" which was
achieved using ECL's digital processing & microwave transmission capabilities.

A mixture of Fibre Optic, Coaxial & RF transmission technologies were incorporated
across the event site to deliver multiple television services. Areas served included race control,
pit garages, event management offices, media, EOC (emergency operations centre), corporate facilities & numerous big screens located at key positions around the site.

ECL contractors installed & maintained 250+ Samsung LCD & LED television monitors, most
of which included installation of custom stands. ECL employed it's DVB-T COFDM capabilities to deliver high quality digital television directly to each monitor. The same format is utilised by Freeview NZ.

A significant amount of fibre optic cabling was installed by ECL personnel around the site
for distribution & linking of television signal. This also allowed audio & IT engineers to share a
common pipe where possible, minimising cabling requirements.
