RTL Luxembourg wanted to expand its portfolio to include more sports, streaming soccer, volleyball, basketball and handball with live broadcasts and reporting. However, with more than 50 different venues per weekend during the season, the manpower required for camera teams would not have been economical. So, RTL looked for a digital solution and found it in the camera and software from Staige, a brand of AISportsWatch.

The fully automatic camera system allows RTL to broadcast all matches from many venues in parallel on the network.


Casel: ‘Staige has the best product among the competitors’

The image quality meets the broadcaster’s high requirements and Staige takes care of tasks from production and hardware to software and delivery. Bespoke technology that was necessary for this project was developed together.

Clubs, coaches and players also use Staige for professional match analysis, and every week, dozens of matches are streamed automatically, without a camera crew, on the RTL Live Arena platform.

Pascal Casel, business-platform & diversification director at RTL Luxembourg, said: “Staige has the best product among the competitors, which is why we decided to co-operate with the German company. The first months of co-operation have confirmed our decision, because we are very satisfied with the high quality system and the production of the games.”
