As the official RF Systems supplier to DORNA SPORTS S.L., Vislink Technologies, Inc. is celebrating 20 years of working at the highest level to bring audiences the most seamless live track footage of MotoGP bikes, racing at over 220mph.
From covering the event build-up to practice sessions, the qualifying rounds, the Sprint, Moto3 race, Moto2 race, and the MotoGP Grand Prix race, Vislink provides systems to capture it all in the highest possible video quality. Alongside the action on the track, Vislink RF wireless cameras are busy in the pitlane, bringing the drama as it unfolds in the team garages as their riders battle for success. Vislink also equips the broadcast teams who bring comments and reactions from the paddock. No other motorsport broadcast gets the viewer so close to the action!
Over 400 million viewers worldwide tune into MotoGP events each year.
“Dorna, the exclusive commercial rights holder for MotoGP, faces no small challenge in capturing the speed and passion intrinsic to the sport,” said Mickey Miller, CEO of Vislink. “Their continued choice of Vislink as the official RF systems supplier for video communications for MotoGP is a testament to our partnership’s innovative, reliable live broadcasting capabilities.”
“We are proud to deliver technology that’s able to withstand the rigors of high-speed racing, capturing the action at all speeds and angles and enhancing the viewer experience of MotoGP fans worldwide,” he continued.
“When we started working with Vislink in 2003, everything around the digital RF and OnBoard RF world at MotoGP was yet to be written,” added Sergi Sendra, Head of Global Technology at Dorna. “Vislink is present at every corner and in the most previously inaccessible places on the track where a cable camera cannot reach. MotoGP deploys more than 40 radio frequency broadcast feeds simultaneously, ensuring top performance and high quality around the globe to all of our fans and clients.”
While Vislink is a long-standing supplier to MotoGP, recent years have brought a host of innovations and technological breakthroughs. In 2021, Vislink and Dorna teamed up with BT Sport (now TNT SPORTS) and the University of Strathclyde to bring live footage of the Monster Energy British Grand Prix through a private standalone 5G network. In 2022, Vislink joined Dorna at the Mobile World Conference Barcelona to showcase innovative 5G wireless systems. In 2023, Vislink has collaborated in bringing fans new angles, such as the ShoulderCam.
“I can’t think of a better way to honor 20 years of partnership,” said Mickey Miller. “We’re honored by Dorna’s continued trust and excited to see where our collaboration takes live motorsports broadcasting in the next 20 years. The future for us is as exciting as ever.”
