Ten Sports Pakistan opts for Grass Valley
PAKISTAN: Ten Sports Pakistan Beam relied on a Grass Valley K2 Dyno Replay System and a K2 Summit 3G Production Client for its coverage of the Fifa World Cup. Grass Valley provided training and on-site support to ensure that Ten Sports was up and running quickly with its new solution.
‘Our production team was very pleased with the performance and ease-of-use of the new Grass Valley solution,’ said Hemant Buch, head of production, Ten Sports. ‘We made the change to the Grass Valley solution close to an important global event, which was a little unsettling, but we are so glad we did. Grass Valley was with us every step of the way, and the results met all of our expectations.’
The solution was installed to produce highlights packages and playlists for specific teams and players during the tournament. ‘K2 Dyno was easy to install and set up – involving much less infrastructure. We look forward to using K2 Dyno again for our upcoming events,’ said Sanjeev Bhargav, vice president of engineering at Ten Sports.
‘This installation is significant, as it gives us an opportunity to show the power of our solutions in a real-world setting and create a larger group of trained professionals in the region,’ noted Steve Ronneberg, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Grass Valley. ‘Ten Sports is a real leader in the market and this relationship is very beneficial for both of our companies.’
