“Diagonale des Fous” Live with AVIWEST

Sports Coverage

La Diagonale des Fous, the Réunion Island’s mythical race, well-known by all famous trail runners was covered live thanks to our bonded cellular system.

On October 17th, the start was given for this famous 166 km trail race. To place fans at the heart of the action and give real-time overview and information, Réunion La 1ere relied on our versatile and robust PRO3 Series to follow all competitors step by step on the steep mountain roads.

Customer challenges

The main challenge was to have a video transmission solution capable of broadcasting live at any stage of the route.
Our PRO3’s best-in-class encoder, paired with our patented custom antennas and award-winning SST technology, enabled remote journalists to get the best connectivity and high quality video, even in harsh network conditions. By offering the greatest size, lightweight and power consumption compromises, our field units allowed Diagonale de Fous‘ live streaming to be a huge success!
