TVU Media Services is uniquely positioned to assist broadcasters covering the tournament with live transmission options, remote production capabilities and 24/7 on-site support.

The possibility of travel and on-location restrictions due to COVID-19 does not need to impact the quality of a broadcasters’ event coverage. TVU Media Services’ Professional Remote Reporting Solution can provide a complete service for reporters and producers to conduct remote interviews from their home or studio with coaches, players, locals and other guests using an on-site camera crew, studio or kiosk.

Broadcasters can bring viewers closer to Qatar with exclusive, rights-cleared live shots of the city available 24/7 via TVU MediaSource, ideal for bump shots and lead-ins. For rights holders, TVU One transmitters are the optimal answer for cost-effective, live shots outside of game coverage, such as interviews, athlete profiles and exploring the event venue.

“With our experience in Tokyo during the Summer Games, setting up a support network for our customers, and our work for the Winter Games in Beijing, we’re 100 percent confident in our ability to deliver everything broadcasters need for a high-profile event like the Football Championship in Qatar,” said Kap Shin, Head of TVU Media Services, TVU Networks. “There are specific challenges with live sports coverage in different countries – given the changing COVID restrictions. We’ve successfully navigated those in the past and will continue to assist content producers so they can concentrate on creating the best live coverage possible. Creative approaches such as deploying cloud- and IP-based solutions can provide the flexibility needed to produce compelling coverage without the typical on-site access.”
