Football TV broadcasting
No one can deny that football is the most popular sport in the world and thanks to the broadcasting it is available to everyone. But let’s be honest, little do we know about how this process is organised and what work is left behind the regular match broadcasting we watch on TV. Today, we will talk about football matches, and we will explain to you all the secrets, ins and outs of work behind the organization of the broadcast of football matches.
Several dozen highly qualified specialists are working on the broadcast – directors, cameramen, engineers. Thanks to the well-coordinated work of the TV team, a football match turns into a real spectacle. Moreover, filming and showing sporting events is gradually becoming similar to the process of making a feature film. Football broadcasts today are a super show for billions of viewers, culminating in the world championships every four years.
How are made all these beautiful TV pictures ?
A whole team of TV specialists works on the sports broadcast: the chief director, broadcast editor, graphics operators, virtual graphics operators, director and replay operators. TV viewers see the match through the eyes of the main director of the broadcast. He must be able to show the fans exactly what they want to see.
All points are very important. If a violation occurs, it is necessary to show who and on whom violated the rules, the reaction of the coach, the team that suffered, the emotions of the referees, players and fans. After a goal is scored, it is possible not to show the reaction of the coach of the team that scored, but it is imperative to show the reaction of the coach who missed. It is very important to show how the fans are worried, how they together with the team are set for the result. It is in such moments that the “cinematic” broadcasting is manifested.
Sports commentator is a one-of-a-kind profession with a lot of competition. Football is the only event that always needs to be shown live, so a great commentator should be a real expert of his sport, have impeccable communication skills and the ability to improvise. Most importantly, viewers must perceive him as a person, because he is also the one who creates the mood for viewers.
There are a lot of things which affect the quality of what we see on a screen during broadcasting. Among them lighting, lawn, stands, attendance, cameras, etc. Modern cameras help to caption all of the most important moments during a match. Without them a football match wouldn’t be as spectacular as for the viewers in a stadium. The most interesting ones are the so-called “frog camera” on the platform, cameras with long optics, cameras with super slow motion effect, thanks to which we watch slow motion replays.
All of these things make a football match broadcasting stand on the same level as movies, because of the creativity and technical support required.
Is it possible to win in sports betting?
It is one of the most frequently asked questions about betting from the overwhelming majority of those who have recently started or just want to start playing in bookmakers. Some people ask Google or any other search engines something like “How to get rich on bets” or “How to make money on bets”. In this article we will give our ultimate guide for everybody who wants to know no what betting is and how it works.
Let’s say right away: a beginner player should first of all understand the basic concepts, and only then be interested in “money” issues. Yes, it is possible to win in sports betting, but correct goals and correct knowledge are important.
Before placing a bet, understand the basic concepts and terms used by bookmakers. The bookmaker’s line consists not only of such simple positions as the victory of one of the teams, a draw or total over / under. There are also a huge number of other bets where various pitfalls for a beginner player can hide: if you do not delve into this and just experiment without the necessary knowledge, this can lead to bitter disappointment.
Sports betting is an intellectual bet between a gambler and a bookmaker: the gambler makes his prediction for a sporting event and puts money on the fact that this prediction will be correct. If the bet is correct, he returns this money with a profit, if he loses, accordingly, he loses it. For each bet, the bookmaker assigns a coefficient (quote) that estimates the probability of this event. Bookmaker quotes can change both under the influence of the number and size of bets made on this event, and because of a decrease / increase in its probability.
The betting odds show not only the size of the potential payout to the player: it also expresses the expected probability of a particular outcome of an event. The lower the odds assigned to the outcome, the higher the probability, according to the bookmaker, of this outcome. It should be understood that the odds are the bookmaker’s assessment, an opinion that does not always coincide with reality.
It is important not to substitute emotions for sober calculation.
Of course, you have a favorite team, but this does not mean that you need to bet only on it, regardless of the objective circumstances. Don’t forget to do the background research on the team you want to bet on, so you can increase your chances of making a profit.
