The return of Premier League and Football League broadcasts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in June 2020 was a welcome sign for millions of sports fans following a 100-day absence, and now, Sky Sports, NEP Group and NEP Connect are being recognized for their innovative use of remote production workflows to deliver the broadcasts during extraordinary circumstances.

On Oct. 28, SVG Europe announced “Remote Football” by Sky Sports, NEP Group and NEP Connect as the winners in the “Outstanding Production Achievement – Event” category at the SVG Europe Sports TV Awards.

The judges described the winning entry as: “Being an outstanding achievement, in an incredibly short period of time. The ability to break down long-standing production and technical barriers put in place over many years, and taking these Tier 1 events remote in very trying conditions was a real credit to all involved.”
