Such a pooling of resources and knowledge was necessary for the host broadcast of the 15th Asian Games — the largest to date in terms of investment, number of participants, amount of sports and in terms of the overall broadcast quality. This event acted as an opportunity to test various methods and principles and to put the HBS and TWI cooperation into action, as well as providing top-class HDTV pictures of the competition. Come event time a number of unique challenges were presented, such as the unusual weather conditions — intensive rain — and the diversity of sports, which ranged from chess to football, sepaktakraw to kabaddi and aquatics to wushu.

Consequently very tailored and sport-specific production plans were necessary, and with the Asian Games philosophy of allowing competitor entries until the day of competition it meant flexibility and adaptability had to be key facets of the DAGBS approach. Furthermore, the event was held across 40 venues — each of which required extensive venue planning pre-event and trained venue staff.
