SVG Europe welcomes SIS LIVE as latest Gold Sponsor
SVG Europe is delighted to announce that SIS LIVE – a leading connectivity provider offering a diverse range of OU and fixed connectivity solutions for critical media including fibre, satellite and streaming services – is the latest addition to its prestigious roll-call of Gold Sponsors.
The company has been embedded in the broadcast industry since 1989 and now covers over 100,000 hours of major worldwide events each year.
SIS LIVE is the UK’s fastest growing media fibre supplier, with resilient connectivity between 70 key broadcast locations including Premier League football stadiums and major rugby grounds. This rapidly expanding fibre network connects major UK broadcasters, sports and entertainment venues, network operators and studio facilities plus international teleports and global connectivity providers.
In addition, the company is the UK’s largest satellite uplink supplier, operating the largest SNG fleet in Europe. This responsive SNG fleet provides contracted services for a number of major sports broadcasters including Sky Sports News and European Tour Productions; as well as ad-hoc services for major sporting events such as the London Marathon and the Tour de France.
SIS LIVE’s established teleports in MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes provide the backbone of the network. Two 24/7 network operations centres with resilient, diverse connectivity between teleports and key locations support the fibre network. Both teleports have extensive satellite facilities to complete the connectivity piece.
SIS LIVE is the UK’s largest live content distributor, supporting multiple live transmissions every day via its extensive fibre and satellite network and its MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes network operations centres.
Explaining the decision to join SVG Europe as a Gold Sponsor, SIS LIVE marketing manager Donna Palumbo comments: “SVG Europe will provide us with a medium to network with key sports broadcast decision makers and develop excellent working relationships. We are looking forward to getting involved in SVG Europe’s key industry events and marketing opportunities.”
