NEP Germany moves into air freight containers for production of the current Formula 1 season

Producing the Formula 1 for TV is, besides the production challenges as such, a logistical tour de force. Production equipment needs to travel around the world preceding the racing circus and must always be on-site and ready for use at the right time. To have an optimal and quickly operational solution at the race tracks, NEP Germany relies on a new container solution to transmit signals from the pit lane and for interviews alike. From this season onwards, broadcaster Servus TV acquired the rights to broadcast Formula 1, and NEP Germany is acting as a production service provider to the Austrian network. The new container solution is a mobile production studio, installed in an extendable air freight container that NEP developed together with Broadcast Solutions. Interacting with additional air freight containers that function as “set-up vehicles”, so to speak, they travel around the world during the Formula 1 season.
