Women's Soccer World Cup in France - Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan

Few sporting events in the past 12 months have taken the world more by surprise than the Women’s World Cup which attracted capacity crowds and record TV audiences. VIDI provided a full turnkey solution for video, audio and data services between all nine venues and the IBC in Paris.

“Setting up the network turned out to be a mammoth task,” recalls Robert Oszvald, director of event services. “Every goal, every pass and every parade had to go through the IBC. In addition to the audio/video streams, those connections were also used for extensive data services – resulting in a very demanding task for the VIDI engineers, who were responsible for the signal transmissions from the individual stadiums to the IBC and for the further worldwide distribution to numerous rights holders.”

The teams at the nine venues each comprised a technician from the local network operator as well as an engineer from VIDI. At each venue, 36 ports for video in all formats as well as eight 1G data services were available to broadcasters. The connection to the IBC was made via a redundant 10G network cable.

VIDI is now gearing up for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, where the company will provide another full turnkey solution for video, audio and data services between all 12 venues and the IBC at Tokyo Stadium. The team will consist of ten engineers plus project managers, with three engineers permanently based at the IBC and seven travelling between the venues in Japan.

VIDI will present this mammoth task from 13th to 17th September 2019 at the IBC 2019 (RAI, Amsterdam), "The world's most influential media, entertainment & technology show" at the VIDI booth, 2.C25 in hall 2.
