Globecast has renewed its Gold Sponsorship of SVG Europe so that it can stay in touch with the “constantly growing” sports broadcasting marketplace.

There are no two ways about it, the sports sector is a constantly growing marketplace and in terms of technology, constantly requiring innovation.
“2019 has seen us use our vast experience to across the sports sector, extending our relationship with the organisers and rights holders of the Total Africa Cup of Nations, bringing the 2019 event to the world. This included 4K in the opening and final matches, as well as VOD content preparation and storage,” noted Walker.
