Synamedia revealed how its SaaS-based solution and Cognacq-Jay Image’s team of experts enabled beIN to add a 4K UHD channel to its OTT platform, beIN Connect, to stream the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
beIN was able to launch the 4K UHD channel to live stream the World Cup matches to subscribers in 24 countries across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with low latency and high image quality.
beIN selected Cognacq-Jay Image and Synamedia after the two companies had demonstrated the ability to set up a HD channel in the cloud in under 90 minutes. As Quortex becomes more deeply integrated with Synamedia’s broader Video Network portfolio, the beIN deployment also incorporates Synamedia’s Vivid compression module for the first time.
Marc Baillavoine, senior director of cloud products, video network at Synamedia, said: “As the exclusive broadcast rights holder of the FIFA World Cup 2022 across 24 countries in MENA, beIN wanted to deliver a stellar 4K UHD experience to its subscribers. beIN is one of the first customers to benefit from the closer integration of Quortex with Synamedia’s portfolio of video processing and delivery solutions.”
