ESS partners GlobeCast for ICC World Twenty20 Cricket

MUMBAI: ESPN Star Sports (ESS) has appointed GlobeCast as its technical broadcast partner in an attempt to deliver high-quality cricket from the ICC World Twenty20 from West Indies to the rest of the world.

ESS, the International Cricket Council‘s global distribution and broadcast partner, has close to 40 broadcast and syndication partners that will show the action in over 181 territories across the world.
GlobeCast is deploying engineers at each of the three venues: Providence Stadium in Guyana, Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia, and Kensington Oval in Barbados. Additionally, GlobeCast will provide a 24-hour satellite booking centre and helpdesk during live transmission.

For the world feed, the signal is sent from the various locations in the West Indies to GlobeCast‘s partner teleport in London, where it is uplinked to several international satellites reaching audiences in North America, Western Europe, South Africa, Oceania, Middle East and Asia. 
For ESPN Star Sports‘ unilateral path, GlobeCast downlinks the feed in London and sends the signal directly via fiber to GlobeCast in Singapore for uplink. An SNG in New Delhi then downlinks the feed and routes it to ESS facilities in India for additional production before ingesting into its networks.

The ICC World Twenty20 comprising 27 men‘s matches are being covered live by ESS from 30 April to 16 May. Additionally, the Women‘s semi finals and the final are beamed across the world, giving similar exposure to women‘s Twenty20 cricket worldwide.
