Live Sport Streaming
A major commercial broadcaster came to us with a challenge: 5 sports, 10 events, 40 days of sport. They needed iOS and Android apps, a website and all the streaming and delivery infrastructure to support multi-bitrate high quality streaming across all events.
This was a welcome challenge for the team, and we successfully delivered the following:
- custom encoders, delivered and installed into the play-out centre,
- designed, developed, tested and delivered mobile apps for iOS and Android (over 20 releases in total!),
- designed, developed, tested and delivered a web front end,
- integrated 3rd party tools for social, analytics and advertising components,
- supported 240+ hours of broadcast streaming,
- delivered over 500,000 sessions of amazing live sport coverage.
Backed by the 24/7 Hostworks Operations team, the project was a great success and led to phase 2 of this engagement.
