NEP Broadcast Solutions and Tata Communications have successfully completed the remote production and broadcast of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) for Star Sports, the number one sports broadcaster in India and subsidiary of 21st Century Fox.

The 2018 VIVO IPL season was Star Sports' first since it acquired the global media rights for USD 2.55 billion/Rs 16,347.5 crore for the next five years. This marks the first time that a sports series of IPL's scale has been produced remotely in India by harnessing superfast connectivity.

This first-of-its-kind remote production initiative brought together NEP's expertise in the centralised broadcast of live events and Tata Communications' video distribution capabilities.

''VIVO IPL is one of the most sought after sporting spectacles in the world, which means that from a broadcasting perspective, there is simply no room for error,'' said Brian Morris, Vice President and General Manager, Media & Entertainment Services, Tata Communications. ''With 60 matches taking place back-to-back across the country, you need a finely tuned, very reliable production operation. In a high-pressure environment like this, remote production, enabled by an ultra-low-latency video network, can have a truly transformational impact.''

Shares of the company gained Rs 4.8, or 0.79%, to trade at Rs 613.00. The total volume of shares traded was 992 at the BSE (9.31 a.m., Thursday).
