Video streaming and networking solutions provider Haivision has announced that Eurovision Sport, which is part of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), has selected the Haivision Hub video network service to be incorporated within their current solution to provide multiple real-time video feeds to broadcasters across Europe to enable their remote production of the European Aquatic Championships in Budapest this month.
Leveraging the SRT protocol, Haivision Makito X real-time video encoders and decoders, and the cloud-based Haivision Hub, EBU and its members can produce coverage of the European Aquatic Championships remotely from their headquarters and tailor live content for audiences on multiple platforms within their respective markets. To enable these production workflows, multiple isolated feeds along with the main production feed will be sent from the venue over the global Eurovision Network and Haivision Hub to national broadcasters, giving them the ability to produce their own custom programming, including interviews with star athletes from their respective countries.
“The beauty of the Haivision Hub cloud solution integrated within the unique broadcast services delivered through our network, is that it offers our EBU broadcasters flexibility to do more interviews and create more custom feeds to meet increasing demand for tailored content without staff having to travel to the sports venue,” said Franck Choquard, head of content and platforms, Eurovision Sport at EBU.
“The SRT technology in Haivision solutions makes it possible to send the lowest latency and highest quality video contribution and integrated feeds over public internet connections, reducing the cost of creating additional programming and coverage of the events. Haivision Hub is a powerful contribution platform that gives broadcasters the flexibility they need to cover live events wherever they are taking place,” said Miguel Serrano, senior vice-president, Cloud, Haivision.
Haivision Hub is an easy-to-use video network service offering an on-demand, agile solution for securely transporting live IP video feeds from video encoders at live event locations to production resources on premise or in the cloud. Enabling complete, end-to-end live IP video routing, Haivision Hub centralises management of any live contribution workflow, greatly simplifying connectivity, making it ideal for breaking news, sports, corporate and cultural events.
