New Wave at the FIFA World Cup
In July, much of the world was glued to its televisions for the biggest of all sporting events, the World Cup. Many millions of those watching in the UK, and the many countries who took the BBC feed around the world, would also have seen the fantastic studio sets designed by Gina Parr for BBC Sport and featuring Total Structures new wave truss.

Aluminum Truss has long been a feature of studio design for BBC sport, but when Gina saw new wave she new that she could create a new and exciting look while maintaining continuity and recognition.

A total of three sets were designed for coverage of the FIFA event, one for the main studio in Berlin and two additional remote sets that toured Germany and were set up inside the football stadiums. The largest of these was the main studio in Berlin where the set was built on the balcony of a library overlooking the main square and Brandenberg gate. Each match was covered from this studio, and each evening the set was reconfigured for a daily highlights and news show.

With new wave framing almost every shot, and being truss toned with various colors depending on whether it was an evening or daytime production, the visual effect was stunning. New wave was the ideal product for the application as it was required to be extremely versatile and flexible in confined spaces and also to look exceptionally bright and sharp as the world cup was to be the BBC’s first broadcast in High Definition.

new wave exceeded all expectation on every level” said designer Gina Parr, “I had seen only small samples of the product prior to delivery, but the truss was certainly star”

BBC Sport now intend to continue to use new wave on the flagship program “Match of the Day” once the English Football seasons starts later this month.
