JockeyCam footage broadcasts live with Network 10 at the Melbourne Cup Carnival 2019

The JockeyCam has had a very successful first time broadcasting experience at the Melbourne Cup 2019, held at Flemington Racecourse, Flemington, Australia. Broadcasting with Network 10, footage was streamed straight from the jockey’s saddle, adding a unique layer for the audience.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival has a rich iconic history as one of the leading sporting events in the world and one of the biggest television events in Australia every year. Returning to Network 10 after a 17-year absence, it’s reported that the broadcast of the Carnival reached 4.1 million Australians nationally.

The JockeyCam provided fantastic footage, weighing just 74g and delivering 1080HD, and gave the viewers a real insight to what it’s like to be riding in the famous race.

Network 10 chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “Our coverage of this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival brought audiences closer to the action – on and off the track – like never before.”
