VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES provides powerful emotions at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Date of publication: 05.07.2018

We are excited to announce that VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES has contributed to creating emotions at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. Three sports facilities in Russia (Rostov-on-Don, Kaliningrad and Sochi) have decided to implement our DTV solution allowing to broadcast IPTV signal to sports commentators and media in the stadiums.

The digital processing platform has 6 slots where any combination of modules can be installed. This allows you to build any system configuration. The high level of stability and security of the Broadcast class has been achieved due to the advanced possibilities and configurations of the redundancy of cards, chassis and head station. Modularity, combined with a variety of available cards which realize the necessary functionalities, allowed to configure the platform to the customer’s needs.

Approximately 300 TVs, to which the IPTV signal was broadcast, were installed on each stadium. A key factor in the choice of our solution was the smallest delay of the signal. It ought not to exceed <300 ms for the entire system. Thanks to the use of ultra-low latency cards with dedicated software, we managed to reduce the delay value.

The benefits of our solution at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia stadiums:

  • the installed TV sets receive a stable signal, of high quality;
  • the low signal delay allows sports commentators to comment on the current situation on the football field;
  • with the usage of TV sets installed on the site, fans can watch the games in different locations (refreshments, private rooms) without any delay.
