M2A Media has been providing Channel 4 with a robust live capture service since 2016.

BACKGROUND

In 2020, Channel 4 had the exclusive UK rights to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Given the high profile nature of this live event and the large volumes of content that it would generate, a fresh look at the broadcaster’s live capture service was required.

CHALLENGE

Channel 4 required a solution that would offer accessible services, such as subtitles, to add 720p and 1080p HD profiles with bitrate ladders up to 5Mbps without impacting time to perform, and ensuring that the removal of ad content was frame accurate.

With the help of AWS Media Services, M2A Media provided Channel 4 with a smooth running service throughout their coverage of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, with no loss of content or major issues.
