The LaLiga and MEDIAPRO initiatives help to put LaLiga at the cutting-edge of sports broadcasting
Football as you"ve never seen it before

The objective of the very best quality broadcasts continues to be a key priority for LaLiga in the 2017-2018 season. With the support of MEDIAPRO, the official LaLiga audiovisual provider, the match-day coverage is set to take a further step forward, bringing LaLiga Santander fans the very best viewing experience. LaLiga, a pioneer in cutting-edge broadcast technology, will be presenting viewer upgrades over the course of the season in match production, audiovisual content and LaLiga Santander and LaLiga 1l2l3 club content feeds.

One of the most important upgrades for the new season include the 4K production of up to two games per match-day with all the FC Barcelona and Real Madrid games. In addition, this season will also see three more grounds equipped with permanent aerial camera technology (La Rosaleda (Malaga CF), the RCDE Stadium (RCD Espanyol) and the Benito Villamarín Stadium (Real Betis Balompié), making nine in total and making LaLiga the only competition to have this technology available in so many grounds. Furthermore, the new corner-located high-speed cameras will allow match-day producers to capture all the action in super-slow camera speed.

Over the course of last season LaLiga was the first competition to offer 360º INTEL replays in its match-feeds. The innovative technology installed in the Camp Nou and the Santiago Bernabéu saw them become the first grounds in Europe to use the technology. This season, LaLiga is taking it one step further with the installation of two new systems in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán and the Wanda Metropolitano.

In order to provide even more value to the broadcasts all the data and all the available tracking analysis will be used to offer stats that improve the LaLiga viewer experience. The performance data and the live 3D graphics -provided by ChyronHego- will offer viewers greater information to help understand everything that’s happening in the pitch during the match. In addition, for the very first time the LaLiga Santander and LaLiga 1l2l3 teams will be wearing unified names and numbers with an exclusive design for LaLiga which facilitate viewer player identity.

More exclusive content for international operators

LaLiga in addition will also provide exclusive TV content for its broadcasters. Since the start of the 2017-18 season, LaLiga launched a full HD TV channel with round the clock programming devoted to LaLiga. The channel features commentary in both English and Spanish, as well as a full script and background audio tracks.

Also kicking off this season, LaLiga is set to produce a full-set programme entirely in English with match previews. Presented by Simon Hanley, who will be joined by two pundits, the programme will preview the upcoming games before the first match starts.

In addition, from the start of the season every LaLiga Santander and LaLiga 1l2l3 stadium will be equipped with an automatically controlled tactical camera to be able to follow the play and provide key tactical perspectives live for expert analysis from the teams’ match analysts. The signal, produced by the cameras will be available for analysis in real time in the grounds, as well as being streamed from anywhere. A solution which puts all the images and all the data into the hands of the analysts in a user-friendly and consistent way.
