MEDIA BROADCAST to deliver expertise as media partner for 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa

MEDIA BROADCAST has partnered with South African telecommunications company Telkom SA and systems integrator Telecom 180, to provide video contribution services for the FIFA Confederations Cup South Africa 2009 and the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ South Africa.

The partnership teams the diverse capabilities of each role-player and leverages the vast expertise of MEDIA BROACAST, the local knowledge of Telecom 180 and the infrastructure and network capabilities of the main contractor, Telkom SA Ltd.

This project will require efficient project management, innovative technology, maximal availability and international teamwork. "Thanks to the professional broadcast of the World Cup in 2006 and other successful implementations of national and international major events, we are ideally equipped to meet these high demands," explained MEDIA BROADCAST Chief Executive Officer, Helmut Egenbauer.

The scope of the project primarily encompasses the broadcasting of the television images and other services from the venues to the International Broadcast Centre in Johannesburg. Based on high-speed fibre-optic infrastructure by Telkom SA Ltd, MEDIA BROADCAST is planning, building and operating a sophisticated IP-based broadcast platform for all types of contribution networks and video signal distribution, including high-resolution HDTV images. Services will commence this coming June during the FIFA Confederations Cup being held at the Bloemfontein, Pretoria, Rustenburg and Johannesburg stadia. The following year MEDIA BROADCAST will be broadcasting the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ from a total of ten stadia.
