When it comes to distributing video of premium sports events, content providers need to ensure it’s high quality, with minimum latency, distributed at a low cost, and easily monetisable.
At SPORTEL 2017, MX1 will demonstrate new enhancements for its MX1 360 media services platform to further simplify the global distribution of sports video content. MX1 360 is the most advanced, efficient, flexible, and scalable solution for delivering video coverage of live sports. Using the platform, content providers can manage every step of the video workflow, from content aggregation to management and global distribution using a combination of cloud technology and on-premises infrastructure.
During the show, MX1 will highlight how several big-name content owners, including IMG and Spring Media, and the Israel Premier Football League (IPFL), were able to manage their content and reach the widest possible audience on every screen with the MX1 360 media services platform.
