Awards glory for Elemental Technologies
Elemental Technologies was recognised at IBC 2014 with an IABM Design & Innovation award for Elemental Delta, the company’s newly launched video delivery platform for the monetisation, management and distribution of multiscreen video.
The company also received recognition with IBC Innovation Award winners Turner Sports and Vienna State Opera as well as finalist BBC.
Elemental Delta, a new video delivery platform that offers a complete solution for real-time content delivery, dynamic ad insertion, time-shifted TV services and live-to-VOD applications, took home the honours on September 13 at the IABM Design & Innovation Awards ceremony in the Playout & Delivery Systems category. The IABM Design & Innovation Awards cast a spotlight on new solutions or products that bring benefit or create new opportunities to the broadcast and media industry.
At the IBC Innovation Awards on September 14, Turner Sports was named the winner and the BBC a finalist in the Content Delivery category. The NBA League Pass streaming subscription service from Turner Sports is powered by Elemental Live and Elemental Server. The Media Factory cloud transcoding service at the heart of the BBC iPlayer catch-up and video-on-demand service is powered by Elemental Cloud.
Elemental was also recognised as a technology enabler to the Vienna State Opera (Wiener Staatsoper) which won for its staatsoperlive.com online service. Earlier this year, Vienna State Opera used Elemental Live to encode the HEVC 4K Ultra HD broadcast of Verdi’s Nabucco on May 10, 2014, the first such broadcast of its kind.
“We are truly honoured to be recognised by such distinguished industry programs,” said Keith Wymbs, chief marketing officer at Elemental. “We are immensely proud to see the Elemental Delta video delivery platform receive the IABM Design & Innovation Award upon its launch and for Elemental to be named a technology enabler to three highly regarded multiscreen offerings that serve customers through innovation.”
