Ireland take the Championship! – Six Nations – 2015


Ireland has done it again!! Retaining their title from the previous year, Ireland has managed to stay at the top of their game and show the world just how it’s done.

Broadcast RF were commissioned to provide all host broadcast wireless camera facilities to England, Wales and Scotland for the BBC, Ireland for the RTE, and Italy for DMAX. Additionally, working in conjunction with Versatile Broadcast, a chest mounted Ref Cam system was supplied and utilised for England, Wales, Scotland & France home fixtures.

A total of fourteen wireless RF systems were deployed by Broadcast RF for the closing fixtures on Saturday 21st March, including RF Steadicam Systems, Handheld Touchline Cameras, Bi Motion Cameras, Return Video Monitors and Ref Cams, as six of the most reputable teams in world rugby locked horns for one of the last time in advance of the Rugby World Cup.

Records were broken for the Round 5, England v France game with a peak audience of an astonishing 9.63m viewers on BBC One smashing the previous 2012 record by a staggering 1.6m viewers! Though there were millions more keeping up with the game through radio, online and digital platforms.

It’s understandable though that there would be a record number of viewers tuning in throughout the whole Six Nations 2015 games as England achieved a record number of 27 tries, a record breaking 221 points across three games being the most ever seen on the final day of the championship and a record victory for England.

Along with the record breaking televised viewings, the BBC’s website also recorded its highest ever traffic in a single day as unique UK browsers rocketed to 8.22m surpassing the previous record of 8.03m during the London 2012 Olympic games.

If this year’s Six Nations is anything to go by then the Rugby World Cup this year hosted in England will have a lot to live up to.
