Media Fibre Services

SIS LIVE has a rapidly expanding fibre network with 24/7 network operations capabilities. Our fibre network is installed at all Premier League stadia, major rugby grounds and entertainment venues throughout the UK.

‘It’s the party of the year with huge characters, huge crowds and huge check outs. But behind the World Championship is a serious live television operation to ensure if they can’t be there, Sky Sports viewers can enjoy the next best thing on our dedicated darts channel. It’s vital we have a reliable and technically robust connectivity partner and SIS LIVE was the obvious choice to work with.’

‘From the planning stages right though the competition itself, SIS LIVE did an excellent job of keeping us informed of their progress as they worked to meet all our requirements. Their teams helped smooth the way for access to stadia and worked closely with our own project managers across the board. Throughout the competition SIS LIVE proved to be a reliable connectivity supplier to our teams on the ground, in terms of internal communications which were vital to ensure smooth transmission, and in ensuring our critical broadcast coverage was delivered successfully.’

‘SIS LIVE literally gave the project a lifeline. The satellite link was ideal for this kind of project in such a remote location and worked perfectly for the duration of the dig. From the initial site survey by the engineers to the removal of the equipment, the system worked flawlessly. I’m not sure what we would have done without it and hope that we can work with SIS LIVE again on other, even more remote, archaeological digs in the future.’

Sarah Stannage, Head of Heritage, Vivacity

‘It really was a party to remember, with a fantastic atmosphere and a real sense of inclusivity, which is what we set out to achieve. When a live event is on such an ambitious scale linking numerous venues, it’s vital that the connections are robust – and we were in safe hands with SIS. Everything went according to plan, thanks in no small part to the professionalism and expertise of the SIS LIVE team.’

SIS LIVE pulled out all the stops to ensure they did not disappoint.’

Products

SIS LIVE boasts an impressive satellite product portfolio, all designed and built in-house.

'As a Dutch regional broadcaster, it is extremely important for us that we can quickly be everywhere in The Netherlands, to cover news stories that are related to our region without the need of specialized personnel. This need does not end at the country’s border, but can stretch out to all over Europe. Therefore we needed a versatile and compact vehicle, easy to operate for a cameraman alone or together with a journalist, at affordable costs. uPod enables us to combine all of this in a small, easy to use vehicle. The uPod booking system, together with the service and 24hr support by SIS LIVE, makes it an ideal combination of high-tech, combined with proven, and therefore reliable, technology. SIS LIVE’s unique position as not just a manufacturer, but -even more so- a heavy user of their own equipment and services definitely pays off.'
