Tribune. Capturing the magic of football deserves excellence and that requires going beyond the established order. It is never easy to question the status quo. By becoming the main broadcaster of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2, Mediapro has aroused the ire of two players who historically shared most of the television image manufacturing industry in France.
By becoming for the next four seasons the main partner of French football, Mediapro has chosen to take advantage of its know-how by using the resources it already has within its group for production and capture of matches, in the interest of viewers, with a view to offering them an ever more intense experience.

It is also no coincidence that the professionals of the Mediapro group were chosen by UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) to produce the Final 8 of the Champions League in Lisbon in August. If they were, it is thanks to their expertise, and to the quality of their services repeatedly demonstrated.
The choice to carry out the recording service of the matches of the French Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 championship internally is therefore quite naturally explained by the fact that we benefit from this technical excellence within Mediapro and by no competitive consideration that the ‘they want to lend us. It is because we benefit from this know-how that we wanted to double the number of matches produced in 4K-UHD compared to the previous season and that we have enriched the production devices with many innovative technical means such as cameras. aerial, mini cameras or Antelope cameras.
