The Nimbra platform provided the contribution of main match feeds and a suite of video and audio feeds between Input Media's London hub and the Manchester facility, across a dedicated Input Media designed network. The main broadcast technical core equipment is hosted at their London Production Centre, with both the Paris IBC and Input Media Manchester facility all connected.

In France, there have been three separate and dedicated teams made up of BBC presenters and commentators along with Input Media's producers, camera operators, sound, satellite engineers and facility partners presenting from the different host stadiums in Paris, Nice, Lyon, Le Havre, Rennes, Reims, Grenoble, Montpelier and Valenciennes.

Net Insight was selected to deliver its remote production solution based on the Nimbra platform, designed for high-quality media transport over IP. Built-in video processing, low-latency JPEG2000 encoding as well as similar features for equipment control and synchronization made the Nimbra solution the preferred choice for remote production.

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup was the eighth edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup, the quadrennial international football championship contested by the women’s national teams of the member associations of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Matches were played in nine cities across France and it was the first Women's World Cup to use the video assistant referee (VAR) system.
