Bringing the Tour De France to Your Living Room

Blog Image: 

With the 99th Tour de France underway, Australians are paying special attention to the daily rankings, with all eyes on native, Cadel Evans. He captured the title last year (the first Australian to earn the honor), leaving many to wonder – can he pull out the victory two years in a row?

For Aussies looking to track who’s gaining ground and who’s losing steam, most turn to one broadcasting source: SBS Television. SBS is on location in France, filming highlights throughout all 3,497 kilometers in order to provide viewers with compelling daily footage. And, Accellion helps make it happen.

How? SBS broadcast teams on-site in France capture video of Tour activities; files are sent to the editing and productions staff in Sydney via Accellion Secure File Transfer; and SBS creates timely programming content. It’s sharing that’s simple, safe, and seamless which is why SBS has relied on us for years to support programming processes for both the Tour de France and the FIFA World Cup. We’re honored to play such an important role in two renowned worldwide events and when the new Tour champion is announced on July 22, we’ll definitely be watching.
