NXTGENbps and High Viz Media Group Deliver Sustainable Power for Motorsports Broadcast


NXTGENbps is committed to providing zero-emission battery power solutions for various industries, including film and TV. Our recent collaboration with High Viz Media Group involved an outdoor broadcast for a renowned automotive brand during their Family Day motorsports event. This case study demonstrates how our innovative Goat portable battery system enhanced broadcast efficiency and environmental sustainability. 

The Challenge 

The High Viz Media Group team were tasked with delivering comprehensive outside broadcasting facilities for a Family Day event at the automotive brand’s Hethel campus. The event required coverage of the vehicles and heritage cars racing around a former World War II airfield. The location’s lack of existing power infrastructure presented a significant challenge. Connect Live, the event production company, aimed to deliver as much of the production as possible using sustainable power solutions, while minimising risks associated with motorsport. 

Solution: The NXTGENbps Goat 

NXTGENbps provided the Goat portable battery to meet these challenges, offering a reliable and easy-to-use solution: 

  • Reliable Power Supply: The Goat’s 5kW/4.8kWh lithium-ion battery ensured a sustainable and uninterrupted power source. High Viz Media Group used two Goat batteries to power six PTZ cameras and other broadcasting equipment, maintaining uninterrupted live coverage. 
  • Efficient Solar Charging: Integrated with solar panels, the Goat allowed continuous power supply throughout the event. Starting the day at 90% charge and ending at 97%, it demonstrated efficient and reliable solar charging, increasing confidence in sustainable power solutions.
  • Silent Operation and Easy Deployment: The Goat’s silent operation eliminated noise pollution, preserving the event’s atmosphere and avoiding interference with audio feeds. Its portability enabled easy deployment across the Hethel campus, simplifying operations and enhancing efficiency. 

Environmental Benefits 

The motorsports industry is making significant strides toward environmental sustainability, with increasing emphasis on reducing carbon footprints and promoting green technologies. The Goat’s zero emissions and silent operation provided a green alternative to traditional diesel generators, aligning perfectly with this vision. By utilising the Goat, High Viz Media Group ensured reliable and efficient power for their broadcast, demonstrating a commitment to sustainable practices and supporting the industry’s move towards a greener future. This approach promotes a healthier environment for both the crew and the audience, showcasing how sustainable solutions can be effectively integrated into motorsports events.
