The new system is designed to provide a full suite of managed services that contribute to the main facility of the Sports League. Notably, it can facilitate the insertion of virtual advertising content for up to 66 program feeds, with downstream distribution to international broadcast partners.

Despite initial design changes and finalization delays, DigitalGlue successfully navigated these challenges. Drawing from extensive experience with similar installation projects, the DigitalGlue team ensured the project was delivered on time and on budget.

Over a span of nine weeks, a crew of five DigitalGlue engineers worked to bring this project to life.
