ESPN presents exclusive coverage of 2016 NBA Draft presented by State Farm (tonight, 7 ET) from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Throughout the telecast, ESPN’s production will utilize the Avid Edit System to help capture the emotions of the night inside the arena in unique way.
“We brought in an Avid Edit System, something we have previously used at the NFL Draft, to incorporate all different kinds of camera formats including Arri Amira, Phantom, and the regular studio feed into multiple elements of the show,” said content producer Jeremy Anderson.
“Also, we had large amount of compositing done with GFX systems working at Barclays and in Bristol under the direction of art director Lucas Nickerson. Overall, we believe the whole system will elevate the look of elements at site.”
With this year’s Avid Edit System, ESPN will utilize multiple camera angles to capture the raw emotion of the prospects leading up to and during the night.
