The company that provided a fibre system for the World Cup finals in Brazil has claimed that all 64 matches were broadcast 'without error'.

Telebras says 166 terabytes of data were transmitted through a 15,280km optical ring connecting the 12 tournament venues to the International Broadcast Centre in Rio de Janeiro.

In all, there were approximately 520 hours of transmission between the arenas and the IBC, from where the images were distributed to more than 200 TV stations across the world.

Telebras president, Ziober Francisco Filho, highlighted the efforts of the entire company staff, partners and suppliers who ensured a service 'with 100 per cent success, no error recorded during the recording'. 'It was a fundamental work together to ensure the delivery of the service,' he said.
