TV and Radio Broadcasters expect full end-to-end solutions, connecting their working areas within a venue to the Broadcaster Headquarters.
Typical telco services only provide bandwidth and often require local journalists to reconfigure the audio equipment between different events, venues and countries.
Guaranteed dedicated connectivity from the venue (e.g. 1Mbps per audio codec).
Fully protected circuits via Eurovision Global Network with dedicated and redundant paths up to a Global Internet Cross-connection Hub or all the way to broadcaster premises.
One supplier delivering the service across all events and venues and one codec configuration for all transmissions in the season (and other events where Eurovision provides this service).
Sharing connectivity and infrastructure from the venue with video feeds (fibre, satellite dish).
No new or specific audio equipment required from Broadcasters; the service is fully compatible with standard audio codecs available on the market.
