Eurovision scores with Net Insight for live coverage of Euro 2016
Major sporting events require quality and reliability as well as the ability to meet ever growing requirements in high bandwidth and switching capabilities. Net Insight’s fibre network solution has been able to meet such requirements and therefore has been chosen by Eurovision. Thanks to this agreement Net Insight’s solutions will be used by Eurovision for the foreseeable future.
“Television audiences today demand best-in-class live services when tuning in to watch live coverage of games during showpiece occasions, such as the European Championships,” said Graham Warren, Director of Network at Eurovision.
“We have a strategic, long-standing partnership with Net Insight that spans more than 10 years. Delivery of live coverage of European football is core business at Eurovision and together with Net Insight we can meet and exceed customer expectations in delivering high-quality live TV.”
Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight added: “Service providers need to prepare for the growing demand from consumers for rewarding and engaging live TV experiences, as well as adapting to the changes taking place across the media value chain.”
“Our background and capabilities in sports live TV, and the entire broadcasting media value chain, means we have the expertise, and the technology, that will contribute to the success of Eurovision’s live coverage of European football over its sophisticated and worldwide spanning Eurovision network. This remains the cornerstone of our mission to help customers stay competitive in a rapidly changing and increasingly demanding media and broadcast world.”
