Video Europe Signs Flypack Deal

News Image
Video Europe has signed a deal to supply a 10-camera flypack system to Digicel Sportsmax. The contract is for a period of two years, and will see Video Europe provide more than £2.5m worth of equipment.

The flypack will be used to cover Jamaican football, athletics, cricket and other major events around the region.

The Digicel Sportsmax flypack system is based on 10 x Sony HDC-2500 camera channels, Gigawave RF camera systems and Grass Valley Karrera vision switching, all integrated using Miranda Hybrid Routing and glue. The communications is achieved by using the latest RTS ADAM IP OMNEO system. The facility can be set up in a Digicel Sportsmax custom built 40ft vehicle for use in Jamaica or flight cased for use around the Caribbean.

Olly McIntosh, from Digicel Sportsmax, said: "As a company we have been building the best-in-class sports and entertainment channels in the Caribbean. As part of this, our original programming means having the best production units one can find. The reputation and quality of work that Video Europe has done worldwide, but especially in the Caribbean with the CPL and West Indies cricket made it an easy choice for Digicel Sportsmax to pick the perfect partner."

Steve Green, Managing Director at Video Europe Group, added: "It's been an amazing last few months at VE, and this Digicel Sportsmax deal just demonstrates that we're establishing a reputation as the best in the business – something I'm very proud of. Add this to the launch of VE Crew, and we're in for a very busy time!"
