Mumbai: Live video contribution solutions provider AVIWEST was appointed 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.

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.

"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 AVIWEST's area sales manager Alexandre Augereau. "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."
