Haivision Tech Powers Live Production for Football Tournament
We’re thrilled to see Haivision technology play a vital role in one of the most watched and highly anticipated sporting events, the world football tournament in Qatar. When it comes to world-class live sports productions with billions of viewers around the globe, top international broadcasters trust and depend on Haivision technology to ensure low latency, reliable, high-quality live video contribution for exceptional and engaging viewing experiences.
Best in Field: Live Sports Broadcast Technology
Both international and local media companies that produce and distribute the event are using Haivision hardware and streaming technology for a reliable broadcast that brings fans closer to the action.
Broadcasters from all over the world capture fast-paced action from the field in Qatar and live commentary off-field, meaning that sophisticated, secure, and ultra-low latency video contribution takes priority. In the case of projects related to this year’s tournament, Haivision has experienced unprecedented demand for its high-performance mobile transmitters, fixed encoding hardware, and its broadcast-grade receiver platform from local and international broadcasters.
For events of this scale, many broadcasters need to supplement their live video workflow but without the commitment of purchasing equipment — this is where our rental program comes into play. In addition to purchased equipment, Haivision distributed Pro360-5G mobile transmitters, accompanied by supplemental SIMs.
Beyond what was rented or purchased specifically for the event, Haivision’s longstanding reputation as a provider for reliable, ultra-low latency live video networking solutions means our fixed hardware is already an integral part of many live broadcasters’ existing infrastructure.
