Encompass provides HD streaming services for England v Brazil friendly
Encompass Digital Media supplied adaptive bit-rate live HD streaming services – including acquisition, transcoding, packaging, delivery and monitoring – for two high-profile international sporting events to a worldwide online audience on September 5.
From the company’s London facility, Encompass captured, processed and delivered the England vs Ireland Rugby QBE International at Twickenham Stadium in London and the Brazil vs Costa Rica Football International Friendly at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey. The company leveraged its Master Control and event streaming capabilities to provide a seamless live OTT streaming service for these matches.
“With the requirement for OTT services burgeoning in the marketplace and with viewers demanding a broadcast-quality online video streaming experience, Encompass continues to increase the number of event-based and full-time streaming services it provides to its clients,” stated Marc Bruce, Encompass’ vice-president, commercial sales EMEA.
