Eurovision Sport, part of the European Broadcasting Union, has deployed Haivision Hub and Makito X4 video encoders for its live production workflows during the 2021/22 International Ski Mountaineering Federation (ISMF) ski mountaineering season.
Eurovision Sport managed the production and live streaming of selected races at eight events during the 2021/22 ISMF season.
Their aim was to produce and deliver premium-quality live video content to help build awareness of the sport, which will make its debut at the 2026 Olympic Winter Games.
The company used Haivision Hub, Makito X and Makito X4 video encoders, as well as Haivision SRT Gateways to send live feeds from PTZ cameras to EBU broadcasters’ production centres for broadcast on both digital platforms and linear TV.
Haivision Hub meant that Eurovision Sport was able to remotely manage Makito encoders and route live video to multiple destinations.
“Haivision solutions, specifically Haivision Hub and Makito video encoders and decoders, are at the heart of our contribution system today,” said Franck Choquard, head of content and platforms at Eurovision Sport. “We have chosen this technology because of its reliability, ultra-low latency, and native support for SRT, enabling interoperability with a broad range of systems, from cameras to cloud-based mixers.”
