Customer case high data volume: UK broadcaster

Being a large broadcaster of sports events in the UK, our customer airs footage from all the major sport events, such as Premier League football and Formula 1 racing.

Being able to broadcast whenever, wherever and directly is crucial. And so is a well-functioning connection with the internet. In some countries however, a reliable and good connectivity isn’t self-evident which means the connection can lack capacity. On top of that, the staff regularly work from complex positions where a fixed connection is not an option. For instance, because the footage needs to be sent from a motorcycle in motion or because the sports event has to be reported live from the sky from a helicopter. Exactly in these complex situations when going live and connectivity is of utmost importance, we step in with our Broadcast Access solution.

Special SIM cards with a smart mix of several mobile networks in every country outside the EU are deployed. The SIMs are integrated in Bonded Cellular encoders, such as MobileViewPoint or Dejero, that are connected to the ENG camera. Up to 8 SIM cards connect to a variety of mobile networks. The big plus is that staff don’t have to depend on just one provider in the country they are working in.

With this solution, we offer the camera crews of our customer increased mobility and flexibility. Using these SIM cards within Bonded Cellular encoders also saves huge sums in comparison to hiring local SNG trucks & Engineers and broadcasting via satellite. The SIM cards can be managed and monitored within the portal. The customer also receives a usage overview on a regular basis.
