England’s early exit from this year’s World Cup may have disappointed many Brits, but the new season is under way, and fans are benefiting from the installation by SIS Live of enhanced fibre links to all Premier League football grounds. These provide connectivity to the company’s rapidly expanding broadcast infrastructure, and the initiative is part of a SIS programme that will bring high bandwidth dedicated fibre networks to key sports and leisure venues across the UK.
“By recently securing a major contract for Premier League football coverage, we have been able to expedite our fibre rollout programme,” said David Meynell, MD, SIS Live.
Key advantages of the new fibre services are said to include high-bandwidth internet connectivity, voice communications and reverse vision feeds, offering commercial benefits with enhanced capabilities. Additional services offered include broadcast in 4K, and COFDM wireless camera links at some venues, which allow roving TV reporters to link instantly into the fibre network and deliver multiple live video streams for sport, sports news, and breaking news stories.
