provider for the International Broadcasting Center (IBC) for the 27th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, which start today and run through December 22nd in Myanmar. More than 1,000 media personnel are expected to cover the games, and ABS has been on location for more than three months preparing for the event. Held every two years, the SEA Games include participants from 11 countries and serve as

pre-qualifying contests for some track and field events for the Olympic Games. There are more than 4,000 athletes competing in more than 30 sports at this year’s event, which will be held in 29 venues across Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, Mandalay, and Ngwe Saung. This year is the first time Myanmar has hosted the SEA Games since 1969. In conjunction with Asia Mega Link, a telecommunications company based in Yangon, ABS was tasked with designing, building, and supporting video and audio for the media in all venues. ABS will also produce HD coverage of all athletic events, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies. Each venue includes an area for stand-ups, a “mixed zone” for interviews with athletes, and predetermined ENG camera positions with wide views of the field of play. ABS and Asia Mega Link have installed bi-directional fiber links between each venue and the IBC, which is based in the Maniyadana Jade Hall in Nay Pyi Taw. The IBC features a three-camera TV studio with control room. Other services available include SD and HD satellite uplink/downlink, equipment rental, and daily highlight video packages available for each sport and each day. Grass Valley is the premier provider of technology for the SEA Games, providing LDX Series cameras and GV STRATUS nonlinear media production tools. Broadcasters can also rent private offices, which include a network connection, router connectivity, and GV STRATUS. “Myanmar is an emerging country, and the SEA Games will help introduce its people and culture to much of the rest of the world with brilliant HD imagery,” said Mark Siegel, president of ABS and director of technology for the SEA Games. “ABS is very pleased to be working with Asia Mega Link to help make this event a success for members of the media who will be on site.”
