Mumbai: Tata Communications and Dorna Sports have renewed their multi-year strategic collaboration to bring MotoGP to its fans worldwide. Dorna Sports is the exclusive commercial and television rights holder of the FIM MotoGP World Championship.

Tata Communications media edge services will allow MotoGP to continue to ensure excellent video quality, coupled with tremendous speed, delivering the race live from the track to the viewers' screens in just a few tenths of a second.

Tata Communications and Dorna teams will also boost migration from an onsite traditional media production to a remote production that will culminate in a future cloud-based model, increasing the number of video signals from 60 to 110 – some in ultra-low latency – providing more content to the viewers, and enabling the innovation of remotely produced immersive sound.

These remote production capabilities, combined with the global video content delivery network, will also enable increased remote broadcasting of live track action, supporting the increased sustainability and long-term environmental objectives of MotoGP and Dorna Sports as both continue to work together on world-leading and world-changing technological solutions.

Tata Communications and Dorna have also been working together to leverage private LTE deployment at race tracks to manage wireless camera feeds in low latency and the highest quality possible, bringing even more incredible content to viewers around the world.

“Tata Communications has been pivotal in enabling us to bring immersive live race action to our millions of fans around the world,” said Dorna Sports chief commercial officer Manel Arroyo. “Together, we've pushed the boundaries of innovation in sports broadcasting, increasingly bringing our global fans closer to their favourite sport."

He further added, "With this renewed collaboration, we trust Tata Communications to help us take the fan experience even further, using cutting edge technology to deliver an incredible experience for fans at home, which is as enthralling as watching the races on tracks.”

“MotoGP represents the best in global motorsports today,” said Tata Communications global head of media and entertainment services Dhaval Ponda. “Fuelled by our deep broadcast experience, video engineering pedigree and passion for technological advancements, we're proud to extend this relationship to further accelerate the fan experience. Together, we'll continue to co-create and elevate the viewing experiences for the legions of passionate motorcycle racing fans globally.”
