Barça TV and Real Madrid TV broadcast real-time video content thanks to Aviwest
Barça TV and Real Madrid TV are relying on Aviwest Pro3 Series bonded cellular transmitters and StreamHub transceivers to broadcast live football training sessions.
Aviwest’s Pro3 Series and StreamHub solutions were supplied by NRD Multimedia, the company’s master distributor in Spain, and enable Barça TV and Real Madrid TV to offer fans exclusive content, including live pre- and post-match coverage, real-time interviews and locker room discussions.
“Providing high added value live content is key to keeping an audience tuned in,” said Albert Reverter, general manager of NRD Multimedia. “By having lightweight and compact equipment, TV channels can move freely and be at the heart of the action, never losing out on any important situation. The Aviwest solution is the perfect tool, offering security, affordability and broadcast-grade live streaming, even in congested network environments such as stadiums.”
Offering a camera-mount or backpack solution, the Pro380 synchronously backhauls multiple live feeds with genlock and lip sync for multicamera, remote and at-home productions. With up to 12 network connections, including eight 3G/4G internal modems with high-efficiency custom antenna arrays, the Pro3 Series is designed to makes it easier for sports journalists to conduct live interviews and reports with HEVC-advanced encoding.
David Jaouen, vice president of sales, EMEA & Americas, Aviwest, said: “Aviwest is extremely proud to be counted among the technology partners of such outstanding and world-class sports teams. The robustness and compact nature of our product made the critical difference in the decision to deploy our solutions, while the strong relationship we have with our partner NRD Multimedia means customers receive a level of professional service that meets all of their requirements.”
Aviwest’s StreamHub receives and decodes all incoming live video feeds sent by Barça TV and Real Madrid TV camera operators in the field. Supporting multiple output formats and featuring an intuitive web user interface, StreamHub allows video content to be easily distributed over virtually any IP network to any social media platforms, CDNs, media servers and streaming platforms.
