On Nov 22, 2014 Kwokman Productions took part in bringing the Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri boxing event live from the THE VENETIAN® MACAO'S COTAI ARENA in Macau, CN to HBO PAY-PER-VIEW.
HBO Boxing partnered with Kwokman Productions to provide a full production fly-pack, engineering and technical support, and local crew for the event. All engineering and broadcast equipment was sourced locally in Macau and nearby Hong Kong.
The fly-pack included several Sony 3300 Super Slomo Cameras, 5 EVS XT3 Instant Replay and Editing Systems, a CalRec Artemis with Hydra 2 Audio Console and the Snell Group Kahuna 360 4 M/E Production Switcher.
For communications, Kwokman enlisted the support of Digital Communications Systems, the broadcast industry’s foremost communications consultants. Included with the kit was an RTS Adam M Frame with 45 KPPanels and 40 Beltpacks. “Communications is the one aspect of a broadcast that is handled differently in every region you go to,” commented Mark Kwok, Vice President of Operations for Kwokman. Mark added, “Having DCS advise our team was instrumental in making sure there were no gaps in the comms department.”
To complement the production kit, a full staff of local, English speaking engineering staff, camera/replay team, and audio/video technicians were supplied by Kwokman Productions. Kwokman founder Matthew Kwok said of the event, "Being able to provide a full fly-pack for a large client like HBO Sports has proven our ability to be competitive in the region." Furthermore Kwok said, "Our team looks forward to meeting the needs of other high-level broadcasts in the region."
Kwokman Productions Asia is based out of Hong Kong.
