As the U.S. master distributor for Haivision we’re in the process of setting up TV2 Norway to broadcast the 2015 UCI Road World Championships using an Haivision DMNG PRO180 system.
The UCI Road World Championships is an event held annually and internationally, covered by more than 500 media outlets from around the world and is broadcast live to a global audience of more than 300 million fans! This nine day event, features 12 Championship races. The athletes compete for their country just as they do during the Olympic Games. Each athlete masters three different disciplines including the traditional Road Race, the Individual Time Trial and the Team Time Trial.
The Haivision DMNG PRO180 is the best option for this broadcast. TV2’s need to quickly deploy a system and follow the high-pace action is a must. The consistently inconsistent environment often encountered in an event like this is best handled by a system capable of auto-detecting the surrounding wireless networks and making intelligent decisions to best handle the video without bothering the user. A broadcast-grade cellular bonding video transmission system such as Haivision’s aggregates the bandwidth available amongst its various connections (some being 3G/4G connections) and transmits an HD video feed back to Norway live with just a few seconds of delay.
Ad hoc overseas events like these often lead foreign European broadcasters to choose a one time rental fee as there is no easier, simpler way to reliably broadcast live video halfway back around the world. However, it is not uncommon for large or small TV stations to be inclined to purchase an Haivision bonded cellular video uplink system to have in their arsenal once the frequency of use tips in their favor.
