The Fédération Internationale de Hockey is commonly known as the FIH, and is the international governing body of field hockey and indoor field hockey. Headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, the FIH is responsible for all major international tournaments – most notably the World Cup.
As with many other sports federations and sports rights-owners, the FIH needed to respond to the demand for higher-quality digital live streaming production within a competitive pricing model, and was interested in looking at new methods of delivery to live stream all its worldwide events.
By combining live streaming services from our Production Centre in West London with a state-of-the art digital archive service, Gravity Media – then branded Input Media – provided the FIH with a cost-effective and robust solution to suit its growing requirements.
Gravity Media has supported the FIH’s needs with a flexible and professional solution since 2013. We’re just one part of a complicated broadcast chain, but by looking after all its streaming needs, we’re playing our part in allowing the FIH to concentrate on raising the global status and popularity of the sport.
