Phoenix Alio audiocodecs were selected by integrator Mediapro for the event.
The XLI Men's European Basketball Championship was held in Germany, the Czech Republic, Georgia and Italy from 1st to 18th September 2022 under the title EuroBasket 2022. The event is organised by the European Basketball Confederation (FIBA Europe) and the basketball federations of the host countries.
Initially, the championship was to be held in September 2021, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the postponement of the Olympic tournament, the date was rescheduled to September 2022. A total of twenty-four national teams affiliated to FIBA Europe competed for the title of European champion for 4 weeks until the final victory of the Spanish team.
In an event of this level, with such important technical requirements in terms of video and audio, Mediapro selected AEQ technology for all the commentator positions in the stadiums they managed, using AEQ ALIO IP audiocodec.

But if you connect with an AEQ codec you can use a unique set of tools to support communication and control of the unit. In addition, with the AEQ ControlPhoenix Audiocodec Management Software you have full control of the unit and all its functions.
