For its UltraHD/4K live broadcast of the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final of the 2014 World Cup games, Globosat partnered with Envivio. This followed Envivio’s successful live 4K broadcast of the 2014 French Open tennis tournament in May.
“First tennis, then soccer — whatever the sport, Envivio’s leading technology and experience in powering world-watching live action events makes us the number one choice for content owners and service providers alike,” said Envivio’s CTO, Jean- Pierre Henot.
