Munich, Germany (June 25, 2010)--Mayah Communications codecs are being used by broadcasters to transition from ISDN to Audio-over-IP at the Football World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
At the Football World Cup 2010 in South Africa, there are reportedly about 30 of Mayah C11 codecs in use for traditional ISDN communication between the various locations in the country and the broadcasters’ headquarters. Missing infrastructure at some locations forced some broadcasters to turn to Audio-over-IP to help bridge communication.
Alfacam Deutschland GmbH, appointed by Germany’s Public Broadcasters ARD/ZDF as technical services supplier, has five HD OB vans there, using Mayah C11s for technical and editorial communication. The private Broadcaster RTL Germany keeps a Mayah Sporty Reporter Codec as a standalone commentary backup solution. Back in Germany, public and private broadcasters use Mayah codecs as a communication partner for those “on the road” in South Africa or use them for their live contributions from the public viewing locations in Germany, including the famous “Fan Mile” in Berlin.
