AFC Asian Cup Australia 2015
HBS teamed up with new partners Gearhouse Broadcast and McGuire to provide the host broadcast of the 16th edition of the men’s AFC Asian Cup, a quadrennial international football tournament that took place from 9-31 January.
HBS once again implemented its ‘Dream Team’ concept for the AFC Asian Cup Australia 2015. This concept was established by HBS at the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ in Korea/Japan and has since been adopted with great success for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™, the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ and the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™.
HBS assembled a ‘Dream Team’ of directors selected from the top levels of the television industry, who had extensive experience working for major television channels and operating in the multi-camera high definition environment. Each international director brought his senior producer and head EVS operator and worked with the very best of Australian production personnel.
HBS also instituted its Multi-Feed concept, a technique first developed for the 2002 FIFA World Cup™ and progressively enhanced for the 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 editions of the tournament. The Multi-Feed concept gave rights holders access to both the traditional match coverage and a full range of additional feeds, each of them specifically designed to complement each other. The Multi-Feed concept also ensured the maximum return from the technical platform and personnel available at each match.
