AVIWEST Enables Barça TV And Real Madrid TV To Broadcast Live Football Content

Two world-famous television sport channels, Barça TV and Real Madrid TV, are relying on the AVIWEST PRO3 Series bonded cellular transmitters and the StreamHub transceiver to broadcast live football training sessions and related content.

AVIWEST’s PRO3 Series and StreamHub solutions were supplied by NRD Multimedia, the company’s master distributor in Spain. Robust and portable, the PRO3 field units enable Barça TV and Real Madrid TV to offer fans exclusive and appealing content, including live pre- and post-match coverage, real-time interviews, and locker room discussions.

“Providing high added value live content is key to keeping audience tuned in," said Albert Reverter, general manager of NRD Multimedia. "By having lightweight and compact equipment, TV channels can move freely and be at the heart of the action, never losing out on any important situation. The AVIWEST solution is the perfect tool, offering security, affordability, and broadcast-grade live streaming, even in congested network environments such as stadiums.”

Offering a camera-mount or backpack solution, the PRO380 synchronously backhauls multiple live feeds with perfect genlock and lip sync for multicamera, remote, and at-home productions. With up to 12 network connections, including eight 3G/4G internal modems with patented high-efficiency custom antenna arrays, the PRO3 Series makes it easy for sport journalists to conduct live interviews and reports with flawless HEVC-Advanced encoding.

Leveraging AVIWEST’s SST protocol, the transmitter series ensures reliable delivery of live video by simultaneously aggregating multiple network connections.

AVIWEST’s StreamHub receives and decodes all incoming live video feeds sent by Barça TV and Real Madrid TV cameramen in the field. Supporting multiple output formats and featuring an intuitive web user interface, StreamHub allows video content to be freely and easily distributed over virtually any IP network to any social media platforms, CDNs, media servers, and streaming platforms.
