France Télévisions Innovates With First End-to-End Cloud Broadcast Of Major Live Event

As the host broadcaster of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, France Télévisions innovates to launch the france.tv PARIS 2024 Olympic channel starting May 8. In partnership with TVU Networks, France Télévisions will broadcast the Relay of the Olympic flame powered by a novel 100% cloud-based and 5G/Starlink network.

With the desire to unite French citizens from the moment the Olympic flame reaches France, france.tv PARIS 2024 will offer 10 hours of live coverage each day, tracking the 1625 km journey via the France.tv app, connected TVs and digital platforms that host France.tv.

Committed to greater energy and environmental sustainability, the group is transforming its broadcasting methods, adopting solutions for the flame's journey that leverage cloud technology, 5G, Starlink, and the use of drones. For this purpose, France Télévisions has chosen the comprehensive tools and ecosystem provided by TVU Networks.

This approach, innovative for even simple live productions, becomes groundbreaking as it applies to every facet of production for an event of such scale and complexity, including live feeds, multi-camera switching, graphics, commentaries, audio mixing, intercom, and playout. To guarantee comprehensive coverage of the flame's journey, the project leverages AWS infrastructure to deliver an optimal experience. By leveraging TVU Networks' solutions across the entire media workflow, this partnership achieves the first end-to-end cloud broadcast for a major event and opens up endless possibilities for new content that resonates closely with audiences.
