Globecast and Imagina France have partner to deliver a live remote production solution for the broadcast of French Ligue 1 football
The demonstration brought multiple signals from a the match bwteen Bastia and Bordeaux, from which programming was then created remotely.
Images from five dedicated cameras and their associated signals were sent from the Bastia stadium in Corsica to the Imagina France production truck in Boulogne (near Paris).
Michele Gosetti, France sales director and global contribution operations at Globecast, said, "The success of this first demonstration in France confirms our desire to develop our services to help our customers face market pressures while also providing innovative content. Remote production is an exciting approach that gives them the opportunity to offer flexible and cost-effective content.”
Allowing live programmes to be produced remotely from places where events occur regularly - stadiums, racecourses, theatres etc. - opens up new possibilities for broadcasters and rights holders, providing multiple raw feeds facilitates the production of diversified content.
Jérémie Roudaire, general director Imagina France, said, "The Mediapro Group is recognised worldwide for its traditional and remote mobile video production solutions. With this project we wanted to show what we believe to be the future of mobile video in France and to offer our customers, with the help of Globecast, new solutions. Indeed, we have developed experience of working this way in Spain where Mediapro Group produces an average of 10 matches per day of La Liga Santander in Barcelona from 40 stadiums all over the country.”
