NEP Connect has won a contract with Premier Sports to provide fibre network broadcast HD connectivity for the Irish broadcaster’s coverage of the Guinness PRO14 rugby.
Covering eight stadiums and locations across the UK and Ireland, including Premier Sports’ broadcast facility in Dublin, NEP Connect’s Anylive fibre network will provide low-latency video, audio and data transfer for live rugby matches.
Premier Sports COO Richard Webb said: “The introduction of the Anylive network to our broadcast operations and the new opportunities that it will deliver is an exciting component of our plans for the future.
“We are delighted to be partnering with NEP Connect to invest in this network that will bring many benefits, not least being able to connect live matches together to bring viewers all the important moments from games taking place at the same time. We look forward to working closely with NEP Connect to evolve and enhance our multiple service and content offerings.”
NEP Connect MD David Meynell added: “Our flexibility and expertise enable us to engage with our clients through every component of their technical and commercial requirements. Our in-depth consultation results in an outstanding service offering that meets or exceeds initial requirements while keeping within budget.
“These abilities, coupled with the robust nature of the Anylive network, make NEP Connect an excellent partner for Premier Sports.”
