SIS LIVE expands Anylive network11 September 2016
The further expansion of its Anylive fibre network is being announced at IBC by SIS LIVE. The company said this strengthens its mission to become the connectivity provider for critical media content. SIS LIVE is also announcing details of Anylive+, a new range of services that will extend the capabilities of the Anylive network to include remote production options.
David Meynell, managing director, SIS LIVE, said: “The need for high production values for live events, continues to rise and with them, the costs. That’s why the advent of high-quality, low-latency connectivity over IP, like that offered by our Anylive network, is an attractive proposition for those who need the power and flexibility of IP-based production for multiplatform delivery.”
Two teleports and 24/7 network operations centres at MediaCityUK and SIS LIVE’s head office in Milton Keynes are backed by extensive, permanently leased satellite capacity to supplement the fibre-based connectivity. According to SIS LIVE, the network has been successfully trialled for the production of major, national sporting events, which has led to the official launch of the network.
“Anylive+ is a major initiative that, as we transition from SNG provider to a connectivity service provider, will further extend our reach as the country’s fastest growing broadcast media fibre supplier and, in turn, greatly enhance the remote production capabilities of our clients,”
