An urgent and cost-effective delivery of the Roland Garros tennis tournament from the host broadcaster to SBB in 4K to reach audiences in Serbia.
Given the dramatic reduction of sporting events as a result of the pandemic, and with the majority of sporting events taking place behind closed doors, demand for sports content is higher than ever and with World Number 1 Novak Djokovic competing, Serbia was no exception.
Like many sporting events, tennis tournaments are multi-day, multi-week events and so we set up the delivery using our 24/7 IP distribution platform, Network 1, to ensure the feeds were connected, stable and monitored throughout.
Whilst 4K content can add a layer of complexity for some delivery methods, Network 1 doesn’t have any limitations so the comparably high bit-rate was not an issue.
