Rugby World Cup host broadcaster ITV has selected SIS Live to supply connectivity services during the tournament.

SIS Live will provide ITV with all communications and live feeds as well as feeds for global distribution for the six week competition which kicks off in September.

The MediaCityUK company will install new fibre connectivity at venues including Wembley, Twickenham, the Millennium Stadium and the Olympic Stadium for the contract, which covers the opening ceremony at Twickenham on 18 September and 48 matches broadcast live from 13 stadiums across the UK.

It will also provide 10 single and three dual antenna uplinks, with over 1,000 hours of satellite capacity and fibre links.

SIS Live managing director David Meynell said “The Rugby World Cup is the most significant sports contract in the UK’s 2015 calendar and we are delighted to have been asked to supply the connectivity services to ITV.

“It is a great opportunity for us to showcase the unrivalled connectivity skills which have already made us a familiar presence at the country’s most high profile sporting venues and allowed us to roll out new fibre across the UK.

“We already have an excellent working relationship with ITV and we look forward to utilising our comprehensive connectivity infrastructure to deliver the highest quality live coverage from up to four matches per day.”
