Romantis celebrates its success at the FIFA World Cup in co-operation with RSCC

Berlin-Schönefeld, Germany, August 2018: Romantis, in association with Russian Satellite Communication Company (RSCC),  supported distribution of the FIFA™ World Cup in Russia to Latin American countries (Peru, Columbia and others) via RSCC's “Express-AM8” satellite located at 14⁰ West.

Romantis uses Express-AM8 for video transmission of the FIFA World Cup.
The satellite’s unique coverage provided a single-hop broadcast from the World Cup host cities to the Latin American countries without the repeated uplink from Europe that respectively helped to reduce delay of the TV signal transmission. Both Latin American and Russian viewers watched live broadcasts of the training sessions of their national teams, interviews with the fans from the fan-zones and other news of the World Cup from different Russian cities.

“We have received positive feedback from our foreign customers regarding the high quality of the TV signal transmitted via “Express-AM8”, said the CEO of Romantis OOO (Russia) Dmitry Belyaev. “Also, it is important to note that we provided the specialists from Latin America with the 24/7 technical support including deployment of the flyaway broadcast terminals. The operations control was performed by the monitoring center that had been earlier deployed by the specialists of Romantis and RSCC and for several years already operating in Brazil”.

Ksenia Drozdova, RSCC Deputy Director-General for Business Development, noticed that, “We are honored to take part in a truly historic event – the holding of the World Cup in Russia. “Express-AM8” is the only Russian satellite that has a unique configuration that allows to organize high-speed information bridges Russia-Latin America, which creates wide opportunities for HD / UltraHD video transmission with minimal signal delay. Thanks to a joint teamwork with partners, we managed to broadcast live reportages at a high level”.
