Red Bee has announced it will deliver MCR services to FOX Sports in the Netherlands.
The multiyear contract will see Red Bee’s multi-tenant IP-based Global MCR Platform in Hilversum powering FOX Sports’ high-end international sports content.
As part of the contribution and distribution, Red Bee will provide mobile encoding kits for 38 football stadiums, delivering signals from the Dutch premier and second tier league.
Provided with two-way fibre connectivity between BT Tower in London, the Global MCR in Hilversum and other Red Bee hubs, FOX Sports will enjoy additional flexibility for content contribution.
“We are happy to have gained the confidence from FOX Sports in the Netherlands,” said Red Bee CEO Steve Nylund. “With our recently launched global IP-based MCR Platform in Hilversum and additional facilities in London, Paris and Stockholm, we have built a highly flexible and future-proof infrastructure than can manage all MCR, distribution and contribution needs for an evolving media and broadcast industry.”
