The media coverage of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 presented a major challenge for companies and media institutions, especially those that provide television broadcast services and technologies. This challenge was not only on the level of the country Qatar, where this global football event was held for the first time, but also in terms of highlighting a true and realistic media image from all the regions of the 32 participating countries in the World Cup. Total Media Cast took on this challenge and launched the first-of-its-kind service to cover the 2022 World Cup with a team of dozens of photographers, technicians, and specialists in the field of television work in all the World Cup countries.
The company started its preparations for its new service long before the start of the World Cup, preparing for integrated media services that are in line with the magnitude of the event. This was achieved through expanding its scope of work to include all the participating countries, in addition to Qatar, the host country. TMC equipped its teams with the latest equipment and devices, and partnered with companies in the field of television broadcasting. It also began marketing its service by communicating with its clients to build business plans that are suitable for covering the World Cup events, as well as promoting its service in Arab and international exhibitions specialized in the field of television media. It aims to be the first company to launch a television service to monitor World Cup celebrations in more than 30 countries through live broadcasting during match times.
