C510ip audio codecs helped ITV Sport communicate during the 2014 World Cup football tournament, taking place at various stadiums in Brazil. The C510ip codecs provided realtime audio communications and talk-back between the ITV studios in London and the International Broadcast Centre, located in Rio de Janeiro’s Riocentro, Latin America’s largest conference facility.
ITV Sport technical director, Roger Pearce, commented: “ITV Sport has had a long and successful relationship with Systembase. We have been very pleased with the performance of the apt-X audio codecs, as the audio quality and reliability are second to none.”
Pearce continued: “For the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, ITV Sport was using the C510ip codecs for streaming IP-based international communications and music circuits via fibre. We also configured the system to use the built in ISDN capability of the C510ip codecs to provide automatic fail-safe backup of the AOIP stream.”
