Digital sport market leader deltatre today announces its involvement in the coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament. With a comprehensive set of digital, media and broadcast services as well as on-venue operations, deltatre will be working from Brazil as well as from its headquarters in Turin to enable the most advanced coverage of the tournament, which kicks-off on June 12.
In addition to the redesign and development of the Federation’s primary digital communication property, www.fifa.com/worldcup, deltatre is also providing the football’s governing body with Results System and TV Graphics services for the live coverage of all matches for audiences around the globe. Furthermore, a bespoke version of deltatre’s pioneering digital video player Diva has been created to deliver the most sophisticated and powerful digital video coverage to more than 10 rights- holding broadcasters worldwide.
Almost 100 deltatre sports specialists and technicians are currently settled in the 12 Brazilian cities, including: 48 on-venue operators alternating in each stadium, six specialists at the International Broadcast Centre in Rio de Janeiro supporting international TV channels, and a team of 20 people executing services from the Operations Center (OPC) in deltatre’s Turin headquarters.
”Our staff arrived in Brazil more than a month before the official start of the games to set-up each environment, run test games, check all operational and technical aspects before the actual airing of the first match on June 12,” explains Mauro Pallisco, deltatre’s Product Director of World Football. Pallisco continues, “The scale of this project is huge and it is another challenging effort for us; we are extremely proud to be at the core of the biggest football event of the year and to play a part in bringing this event to global fans.”
