SVG On Demand: How Fox Sports Revolutionized the Delivery of the 2018 FIFA World Cup
For the production of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Fox Sports needed an integrated best-of-breed solution that would quickly enable it to edit content in near real-time for all 64 World Cup matches in Russia using their state-of-the-art production facilities in Los Angeles. Hear how IBM Aspera FASPStream and Telestream Lightspeed Live and Vantage solutions enabled high-quality streaming to Fox Sports’ remote production teams in near real-time over unmanaged IP networks. As a result, Fox was able to reduce or eliminate significant production costs while increasing the amount of HD & UHD content uploaded (nearly 2 petabytes) that was used to produce over 150 feature pieces and countless promotional & editorial highlights.
At the 2018 SVG TranSPORT conference on Oct. 16 at NYC’s Microsoft Technology Center, Aspera (an IBM Company) CTO Mike Flathers presented this case study regarding Fox Sports’ monumental efforts during the FIFA World Cup.
