Total Media Cast (TMC) and TVU Networks to broadcast live from each of the 31 Fan Zones competing in Qatar next month.
TMC will employ a full-redundant IP streaming solution over cloud from TVU and deliver the signals to media outlets using TVU Grid, an open platform for live and archived rights-enabled video content.
TMC is offering a variety of media services for broadcasters heading to Qatar, including live studios (DTL), news reporters, SNG and IP streaming, on-site engineering, and ready to air news packages.
“We are thrilled to partner with TVU Networks on this project, we believe that this collaboration will have a great impact on the viewing experience of the Qatar competition for millions of viewers and TV channels all around the world,” said Issam Ayyad, founder and general director of TMC.
“This partnership with TMC will allow us to expand our global reach in an unprecedented way,” added Paul Shen, CEO of TVU Networks. “We’re proud to help bring the excitement of the biggest sporting event in the world to a global audience. Being chosen by TMC for such an innovative project, helping media outlets bring simultaneously the fan zone experience from 31 countries to their viewers, with an easy cloud-based solution, where any live feed can be taken to digital or traditional SDI format in a click is a true testament to the innovation of this partnership.”
