MediaKind has been selected by Icelandic broadcaster Síminn to protect and deliver its live HD and UHD Premier League broadcasts.
The deployment will include MK RX1, a multi-codec, multi-service professional decoder designed to maintain the integrity of valuable, high-quality content across contribution networks, with “the lowest latency in the media industry.”
MK RX1 allows Síminn to decode up to 12 live feeds at once, before distributing them via MK Director, used to prohibit unauthorised access and manage primary distribution.
Bjarki Jónsson, manager, TV Department, Síminn, said: “Live sports coverage has a unique ability to captivate the imaginations of viewers all over the world and we want to give Icelandic fans the best possible, high-quality experience of the beautiful game.
“By partnering with MediaKind and using their industry leading RX1 solution, we will deliver the best football moments as they happen in the highest picture quality with the lowest latency.”
