News from the team at BitFire Networks + BitFire Studios

As we head into the busy holiday season, the team at BitFire wishes you a wonderful time spent with family and friends.

We are so grateful for all the partnerships we’ve made and the outstanding projects we’ve worked on this year and look forward to many more in 2022.


What a privilege to be awarded the bronze in the category ‘Best Lockdown Solution’ at this week’s OTT Awards from Sports Pro.

The awards celebrate the pioneers of OTT and streaming in the sports industry. The award was given for our work during the pandemic in the first-ever remote, virtual NHL Draft in 2020, as well as the draft in 2021, in deploying 75 simultaneous remotes and more than 100 total IP broadcast transport feeds each year.

We are honored to be among such an elite group honoring the most exceptional and creative uses of technology.
Perhaps one of our biggest projects has been the launch of our state-of-the-art studio.

We made headlines across the country last month with our grand opening!
From a partnership with Alice Cooper to a congratulations letter from Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego – our celebration was featured in the Associated Press, TV Newscheck & Sports Video Group.

Our revolutionary facility is unlike any other in North America in that transmission and production happen all under one roof.

See what top media outlets had to say about BitFire Studios.

entertainment industries brightest minds. We are excited to see great things from this partnership."

As the world series dominated the sports world last month, BitFire has also been focused on baseball.

We’ve been working with our production partners covering the Fall Classic, maximizing player's exposure to professional scouts and college recruiters.  

Our creative remote production workflows make it all possible. With BitFire, the best crew can work together regardless of their physical location.
Forget being in the same room; you don’t even have to be in the same country.

Unite your crew from any location to create a seamless production workflow. It’s just one of many services BitFire provides to our clients.

Keeping with the sports theme, BitFire went to the mat with the PFL MMA for the PFL Championship! 

The League has been using our on-air remote talent kits, virtual comms interface and our proprietary video transport platform all season, culminating in a TKO Championship event.

He would love to talk about your broadcast needs:
In a little less than a year, the 2022 midterm elections will be wrapped up. With so many political seats up for grabs, the airwaves will be dominated by political coverage.

As producers determine coverage plans, BitFire provides innovative broadcast solutions for live events of all kinds.

Our resources can truly make a difference in the upcoming campaigns.
