With the installation of the MediaStar IPTV solution, the recently refurbished racecourse’s main and extensive gaming area, as well as the autumn racing competition, have benefited from the world-famous seven-day Galway Summer Festival and racing.
The MediaStar system was designated and installed last year to coincide with the opening of the track’s new Wilson Lynch building, a replacement for the old Todt Gaming Hall. Nearly 90 displays serve Ladbrokes betting shops, the new Champagne Bar and other hotel areas overlooking the popular stadium, which receives up to 1,400 visitors per day.
External broadcast trucks provide real-time signals from multiple sources, including Sky Sports Racing, terrestrial TV broadcasts and key betting channels through the MediaStar 778 and 785 encoders, making it a powerful and extremely reliable solution for all racecourse needs and input flexibility, making it ideal for live racing. These features enable content to be distributed throughout the building.
