SIS Live is set to announce an expansion of its AnyliveTM fibre network at the IBC conference.

The company, which has two network operations centres at MediaCityUK and Milton Keynes, will also reveal a new Anylive+ range of services, which will include remote production options.

“The need for high production values for live events, continues to rise and with them, the costs. That’s why the advent of high quality, low latency connectivity over IP like that offered by our Anylive network is an attractive proposition for those who need the power and flexibility of IP-based production for multiplatform delivery,” explained SIS LIVE managing director David Meynell.

The current Anylive fibre network links broadcasters, switching centres, channel aggregators and more than 70 sports stadia and venues.

The system has already been trialled with a number of national sporting events, with the official launch and additions set to be announced at the IBC convention in September.
