Match acquisition

 

Once upon a time, match DVDs travelled for days on end by post. Now, with an FTP server, they can reach the entire world in less than 30 minutes.

 

Panini Digital's production process starts with the high-definition recording of matches played. Thanks to a complex system of satellite antennae and decoders, we can now record more than 7,000 games globally per year. But that's not all...

We have overseas customers whose matches are not broadcast over common satellite channels and here's where the File Transfer Protocol comes into play. Through an FTP server, Panini Digital is able to download an entire game played in any part of the world in under 30 minutes.
