During the 2018 FIFA World Cup, FOX Sports needed to broadcast all 64 matches in HD and Ultra-HD to a US audience — without moving their state-of-the-art post-production operation from Los Angeles to Russia. It was a complicated challenge with a simple solution: IBM Aspera.

FOX Sports used Aspera® FASPStream technology to remotely edit content in near-real time. This groundbreaking, high-speed transfer technology allowed them to shorten their production cycle by hours, an advancement that helped them deliver a seamless viewer experience at a fraction of the usual cost.

Maximum speed,
minimum cost

During the FIFA World Cup 2018, FOX Sports sent over 2,700 total live feeds over commodity internet between Moscow and Los Angeles, despite Russia's unique challenges with international data connectivity. Editorial teams saw program feeds arriving "ready to work" directly into their edit systems within seconds of the action. And all of it came with significant cost savings.
