Coverage of the German elections has meant a huge infrastructure for the triad of broadcasters RTL, CBC and BCE
On Sunday, September 26, more than 60 million Germans elected their representatives to parliament. For this national event, RTL News, CBC and BCE were at Berlin to ensure live production and broadcasting for RTL Deutschland.
CBC covered the elections in HD (high definition) with 10 cameras on three different sets. The broadcasting was done via a dedicated line to their broadcast centre in Cologne (Germany) with a backup via satellite. BCE was on the “Unter den Linden” set with its HD outside broadcast van and a production team which completed CBC’s team. About six hours of programs were produced and broadcast featuring talk shows, interviews shifts and graphics.
“The Bundestag Election is a major event in Germany, marking the end of Angela Merkel’s 16 years in office. We are proud to support RTL News and with our mobile production means, meeting the high-quality standards of the RTL Deutschland”. Concludes Xavier Thillen, Head of Production and Digital Media Operations at BCE.
