CINGULARITY

WHO WE ARE

Cingularity is a media network provider that designs and delivers custom broadcast solutions for remote production to ensure its customers are always live, with perfect transmission every time.

Cingularity was created with the somewhat idealistic thought that a specialist team of broadcast and network experts could harness the cohort of global telecoms operators and hardware vendors to offer the broadcast industry solutions fit for broadcast. The team behind Cingularity has worked extensively with fibre-based projects for sports contribution and distribution and has designed and operated solutions for some of the largest sports property owners globally. This combination of experience, independence and flexibility allows us to dream up bespoke solutions that work.

> EXPERIENCE

Whether it is tennis, football or ice hockey – our experience means we know how to anticipate the unexpected. Whether this entails problematic venue owners or permafrost delaying a new cable, the solution lies in anticipation.

> INDEPENDENCE

We select our network and hardware partners based on our objective understanding of the specific project in question. Projects determine solutions, not product managers.

> FLEXIBILITY

To us, flexibility and agility are not simply ‘core values’ which appear in a corporate mission statement. We mould ourselves around our customers to create perfection every time.

PERFECT VIDEO TRANSMISSION FOR TRUE REMOTE PRODUCTION

Cingularity enables its customers to achieve true remote production and overcome chronically poor local access issues that often cause unwelcome frame-drops, latency and production headaches.

Our network can transmit content thousands of miles from live events and broadcast locations anywhere in the world to production teams back at base. They receive studio, RF and other local feeds in baseband in a fraction of a second, enabling them to cut feeds and control cameras just as if they were on site. Customers gain more than access to the network. We’ll also supply on-site telecom engineering expertise to take care of setup, monitoring, quality control and problem-solving to deliver perfect video transmission. It means our customers can relax and focus on their primary job of capturing and programming brilliant live content.

WHAT WE DO

ARENA CONTRIBUTION

Cingularity has designed and delivered fibre solutions for some of the largest global sporting events in existence. These range from one-off global events to ongoing seasons. No two events are the same. Success requires experience, foresight and creativity.

REMOTE PRODUCTION

Whether driven by cost savings or a desire to better control the productions values of disparate global events, remote production puts increased demands on quality and availability of contribution. Our team’s experience ranges from designing low bandwidth IP contribution solutions to major JPEG2000 low latency solutions for full remote camera productions.

GLOBAL CONTRIBUTION

With 4K and HDR driving the need for heavy compression of end-user distribution, there is a growing need for contribution networks to be as close to uncompressed as possible. Utilising high bandwidth compression methods such as JPEG2000 or TICO preserves the signal right up to the point of distribution, ready for heavy compression at the point of play-out.

NETWORK DESIGN & SOURCING

Cingularity has designed dedicated networks for some of the worlds leading broadcasters. These have included IP-based internal primary distribution networks as well as global SDI contribution networks. With the advent of SMTE 2110 and end-to-end IP workflows, the design of the underlying infrastructure is becoming ever more critical.
