World Roller Games Chooses TVU Networks for Coverage of Intense 11-Day Competition

27/07/2019

Multiple TVU solutions helped broadcast events from across 14 venues in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain July 26, 2019 TVU Networks, the market and technology leader in live IP video solutions, has announced its involvement in the broadcast of the world's largest event for roller sports, the 2019 World Roller Games in Barcelona, Spain.

This year, The World Roller Games boasted 11 different disciplines including inline freestyle, rink hockey, roller derby, skateboarding and more. Over 4000 athletes participated representing 81 countries from all over the globe, as well as over 140,000 visitors.

The companies producing the World Roller Games were in search of an efficient and reliable way to broadcast from multiple remote locations throughout five cities. The organizers also wanted to find an innovative way to cover the diverse array of sports represented in the competition from the various types of venues in which the games would be held.

Ultimately, the producers of the event turned to TVU Networks. They deployed 14 TVU One transmitters, some of which were connected to OB vans at venues and the rest of which were mobile. Feeds were synchronized using TVU Timelock and sent to the Technical Operations Center, where producers could insert graphics, create highlights and then distribute streaming video worldwide with TVU Servers. Six synchronized signals were sent to La Xarxa for distribution using one TVU Remote Production System (RPS) unit. TVU also provided the World Roller Games with a full duplex VOIP channel which is integrated with all TVU One devices so that people at the venues could communicate with those in the Technical Operations Center.

TVU offered incredibly flexible solutions as well as a wide range of equipment to use for everything from transmission to remote production said Javier Grima, Executive Producer of the World Roller Games 2019. We were able to capture, produce and distribute the live broadcast at a cheaper cost than traditional satellite and fibre solutions without sacrificing quality. The technology was so advanced that it made operations easier and more efficient than before.

These TVU products and solutions performed flawlessly, despite less-than-ideal circumstances. The speed marathon final, which ran a course of 42,195 meters, was broadcast from the streets of Barcelona from a motorbike. TVU One was able to transmit high-quality, low-latency HD video while on the move over a significant distance for the complete duration of the race. Additionally, the beachside location of the speed road competition track made it difficult to get a strong connection. Regardless, transmission from the site was smooth, with minimal sub-second delay.

We're honored to have helped broadcast the 2019 World Roller Games, said David Jorba, TVU Networks' EVP, Managing Director of Europe. The uninterrupted high-quality coverage across the 14 different venues was further testament to the unparalleled performance of our solutions in challenging environments and network conditions.

All TVU Networks solutions utilize HEVC/H.265 compression standard to optimize data use and generate less overhead, leading to lower operational costs while delivering even greater transmission reliability. TVU One's award-winning mobile IP video transmitter is a breakthrough in size and performance, allowing up to 4K60fps HDR live transmissions at bit-rates as low as 3Mbps. TVU Timelock and TVU RPS are a reference in the industry for remote, multi-camera production, offering unmatched synchronization and wireless capabilities over a standard internet connection.
