UEFA Selects AVIWEST To Support Off-Venue Events

AVIWEST was selected by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) to support selected off-venue events, including official team training and press conferences from Europe's biggest football show — UEFA EURO 2020 — using a bonded cellular ecosystem.

With 51 matches held in 11 host cities across Europe and a difficult sanitary environment due to the COVID-19 global health crisis, this year's event was extremely challenging to prepare for and deliver.

UEFA used the AVIWEST solution to deliver additional match day 1 programming, enabling broadcast partners to effectively showcase the UEFA EURO 2020 official team training sessions and press conferences for their increasingly digital audiences. UEFA leveraged AVIWEST's PRO380 bonded cellular field units, StreamHub transceiver, and Manager unified management platform to address its mobility, flexibility, and reliability challenges. AVIWEST also provided UEFA with SIM cards and data, and accompanied their broadcast team throughout all stages of the project, including expeditions across Europe, team training, installations, and follow-ups with a 24/7 support service.

The AVIWEST PRO3 Series enabled UEFA's host broadcast team to securely provide live high-quality feeds over aggregated cellular networks. They were also able to use IP networks to send first-class images from the field.

In the master control room, the AVIWEST Manager enabled monitoring and control of the entire AVIWEST system including fields units, StreamHub transceivers, and third-party equipment via a single and intuitive web interface. Through an advanced set of functionalities, AVIWEST Manager provided UEFA's production team with vital information about device performance, resource availability, and potential data consumption warnings. The Manager also allowed easy video routing through simple drag-and-drop and the booking of StreamHub outputs (SDI or IP) for dedicated transmitters.

"The AVIWEST Manager offers greater flexibility, efficiency, and simplicity than other systems on the market, so it was the perfect match for UEFA's remote live video production requirements," said Alexandre Augereau, area sales manager at AVIWEST. "We are proud of the support that our team of experts provided to UEFA. During the event they worked together closely to streamline UEFA's workflows and help them to reach their goals."
