GlobeCast to distribute Superbike coverage

Broadcast services provider GlobeCast is to provide contribution and world wide distribution of the FIM Superbike World Championships (WorldSBK) to broadcast rights holders for the next two years, following the extension of its agreement with the series promoter Infront Sports & Media.

GlobeCast will deploy SNG vehicles and flyaway units to each stage of the competition, which takes place in a number of countries across the globe between February and October. GlobeCast will also provide uplink, space segment and transmission via its satellite and fibre network.

After each race GlobeCast will playout the weekend’s WorldSBK highlights from its site in Rome, Italy. The feed will be routed via fibre and distributed via satellite in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
