Harris Broadcast powers HBS for global soccer tournament
Harris Broadcast, a global supplier of content management and network infrastructure for the broadcasting industry, is preparing to support the broadcasting at the upcoming global soccer tournament in Brazil.
The broadcast solutions provider has partnered with HBS, the host broadcaster, as well as its prime and technical contractors including Sony Professional and sono Studiotechnik to provide equipment and services to ensure the efficient delivery of content and broadcasting services at the soccer event.
The company will provide mobile production solutions for the main Brazilian broadcasters and content generators, in addition to supporting regional broadcasters that will cover the games and FunFest events.
Additionally, Harris Broadcast will power outdoor video screens at each participating venue to entertain fans. The company’s regional support team in Brazil and greater Latin America will be on site throughout the games, and provide pre-event equipment commission, configuration services and operations training.
Harris Broadcast also supplied its new Platinum IP3 router for the last Confederations Cup. IP3 comes with complete in-built crosspoint redundancy as standard. The device’s multi-format signalling capabilities, which enable it to accommodate separate video, audio and data paths within the same frame, are very useful too.
“Next summer, events in Brazil will generate some of the biggest global TV viewing audiences ever. It takes a special type of organization to facilitate this kind of event and Harris Broadcast is tremendously proud to have been selected as technology provider to broadcasters and service providers on several continents,” said Richard Scott, senior vice president, Harris Broadcast.
