Creative Technology (CT) is celebrating successfully delivering all video aspects for the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai for the tenth year running on behalf of European Tour Productions.

CT supplied four ROE CB5 outdoor screens to ensure spectators could follow the event no matter where they were. Barry Collins, project manager at Creative Technology, explained: “The ROE CB5 is a great product, the high refresh rate and high NIT levels makes it ideal for outdoor viewing, even in daylight.

“The custom detachable touring frames are specifically designed with outdoor applications in mind and has been wind rated to provide structural rigidity while providing a lightweight solution.”

The event had live music performances in the Champion Village where attendees could enjoy the performances, eat and drink from various venders and get a free golf lesson. It was here where CT’s 21 square metre outdoor screen was situated to ensure all spectators in this area never missed a second of the tournament.

The driving range was also a popular place for fans as they got to watch pro golfers warm up and practice whilst both golfers and fans kept up to date on CT’s 10 square metre outdoor screen. The 18-hole course had high footfall around the 18th green and CT placed two screens here, one 21 square metre outdoor screen faced the 18th hole grandstand and one 60 square metre outdoor screen was directly opposite the 18th green and hospitality areas.

A first for the touring event was the 11 square metre Absen A3 Pro indoor screen, which was located in the championship hospitality chalet. The hospitality chalet houses the key sponsor lounges and the hospitality terraces. In the media centre, CT provided a 21 square metre Absen A3 Pro indoor screen to allow the press to follow the action in real time whilst providing a customised scoring graphical wrapper.

Fifty-nine IP TV’s ranging from 15” – 65” were also placed in various locations and used to display CT’s customised Tournament Television Programme (TTV) comprising of live feeds, highlights, interviews, scoring, player information, stats, social media and sponsor advertising.

For the first four hours of each event day CT also supplied Sony HDC 1500 camera channels to offer coverage of every shot on the first hole, to provide a live feed for the TTV programme before the World Feed went live.

Richard Smith, CT’s London account manager, added: “The indoor screen in the hospitality chalet has never been done on any touring event before and it was a great success. We have received nothing but positive feedback.This year’s event as always was a great success, with crew and kit coming from both the Dubai and London offices, it’s a real global team effort and an event I always look forward to.”
