As MLR’s fifth season kicked off on February 5, BitFire Networks expanded their efforts to support the league’s broadcast transmissions across the globe. This partnership began in 2021 and will now run through the entire 2022 eighteen-week season, followed by the Championship series.
“BitFire is thrilled to continue our partnership with such an elite broadcast group in showcasing Major League Rugby to the world,” says Bob Sullivan, President and CEO of BitFire Networks. “MLR execs were so pleased with our production capabilities, that they asked us to partner on the current season.”
BitFire’s one-of-a-kind technology is central to helping the league’s production partners with broadcast program transmission, monitoring and REMI – or Remote Integration Model – support.
BitFire will use its customized live production system and again partner with two of MLR’s top production teams, L2 Productions and Tupelo Honey, in broadcasting the 2022 matches. BitFire deployed servers in the control rooms of L2 Productions and Tupelo Honey. Servers were also installed on several of the mobile units that will travel to the team’s venues.
