AVIWEST, a global provider of video contribution systems, has announced that Italian television production and services provider 3Zero2 TV has deployed 50 units of the company’s DMNG PRO180-RA video uplink solutions to deliver live video transmissions for the Lega Pro football league coverage. The project was supported by Comsytec, AVIWEST’s Italian distributor and system integrator. Featuring a portable design, AVIWEST’s digital mobile newsgathering solution allows 3Zero2 TV to broadcast live HD video efficiently and cost-effectively over two bonded Ka-band satellite links.
Using the DMNG PRO180-RA from AVIWEST, 3Zero2 TV can simultaneously broadcast 24 football matches. Each stadium is outfitted with two DMNG PRO units, which work in tandem with two professional HD cameras. The 720p 50 FPS live streams are distributed to the viewers through a sports Web portal.
“Being able to deliver crystal-clear video content is especially important during sporting events given their fast-paced nature. Viewers do not want to miss any of the action,” said Luciano Consigli, CTO of 3Zero2 TV. “AVIWEST’s DMNG PRO180-RA video uplink system features sophisticated signal transmission technology, enabling us to stream live HD video coverage of football matches at a high frame per second over satellite. Also, the DMNG PRO units are very portable, and can be easily moved across all 60 Lega Pro stadiums, lowering our operational expenses.”
