High-speed video transfers deliver tournament clips to sports fans worldwide

Setting the record for highest aggregate
attendance of any sporting event in history,
Euro2012 attracted an even larger audience
through TV broadcasting, with approximately
150 million people tuning in around the world
each day. Run by the Union of European
Football Associates (UEFA), Euro2012 took
place June 8 – July 1, 2012, with 31 matches
located at 8 different venues throughout host
countries Ukraine and Poland.
UEFA chose Aspera technology to power
transfers of match promos, highlights, interviews,
player and host city profiles from
event sites in Eastern Europe to broadcasters
worldwide, incorporating Aspera file transfer
and workflow orchestration platforms as integral
parts of their LIVEX On-Demand service.
