Aldea Solutions announced that it successfully transmitted the live feeds of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia to free-to-air channel Mega in Chile.
The company was selected by Mega to transmit live coverage for the event back to Mega’s main studios in Santiago, Chile. The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup was held between June 17 and July 3, 2017 in Russia. The Chilean national team reached the finals.
The event was managed by Aldea’s technical team on site in Saint Petersburg, Russia, supported by a dedicated operations team monitoring the event from Aldea’s 24×7 network management center in Montreal, Canada, said the company in a press release.
“We are truly privileged to have served MEGA for the very first time as a customer for such an important live sporting event”, said Lionel Bentolila, CEO of Aldea. According to the executive, “Aldea’s long history with transmission of live video, engineering competence along with its success with delivering important international sports events to other customers for over 15 years, were all key factors in being selected by Mega”.
Aldea is building off its successes with multiple editions of international soccer tournaments, including most recently the 2016 Copa America held in the United States, and the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
