At IBC, CenturyLink is talking to visitors to its stand about the demonstration it carried out with Grass Valley in June
The two companies successfully ran an ultra-high bandwidth test directly from cameras at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, to a remote production location in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Using CenturyLink’s 100Gbps high-speed Vyvx network and Grass Valley’s DirectIP feature, the test demonstrated that uncompressed multi-camera signals can be delivered to, and controlled from, a remote production facility, eliminating the need for large production crews and complex outside broadcast set-ups on location.
Bill Wohnoutka, vice president, internet and content delivery services, CenturyLink, said: “With Grass Valley’s DirectIP, we have demonstrated how our Vyvx network can enable broadcasters in the US and select global locations to achieve the advantages of remote production to produce large-scale live events. CenturyLink is known for its expansive global network and we continue to make significant investments to scale our Vyvx network to enable production workflow transformation across the majority of professional and select college sports venues in the US along with some of most widely used international venues.”
