SVG Europe joined by new sponsors Avid, Quantel and Viaccess-Orca
In a further confirmation of Sports Video Group’s expanding presence in Europe, the sports broadcast technology association has announced three new sponsors who are set to enjoy the benefits of its regular conference events and extensive online and newsletter content: namely, Avid, Quantel and Viaccess-Orca.
Returning sponsor Avid is a global giant of video and audio production technology. Established in 1987 and becoming a publicly traded company in 1993, US-headquartered Avid has developed multiple milestone software packages, including non-linear editing system Media Composer and audio recording package Pro Tools.
UK-based Quantel’s mission is to be the world leader in content creation, versioning and delivery systems. It provides a host of powerful and efficient tools for the digital age that enable its customers ‘to tell their stories in the most compelling ways possible from anywhere and across every platform’. Offering a complete range for live TV, news, sports, post and TV everywhere, Quantel can provide products to deliver at SD, HD, 2K, 4K and beyond.
The third new addition to the SVGE sponsor family is Viaccess-Orca. Part of the Orange Group, Viaccess-Orca helps content service providers gain a competitive edge in this market of unmanaged networks and IP-connected devices. Since the user experience is a critical success factor for operators today, Viaccess-Orca’s solutions focus on delivering engaging experiences on all platforms for a new entertainment world.
“We are delighted to welcome three new additions to the roll-call of SVG Europe sponsors,” says Joe Hosken, general manager, SVG Europe. “Like the many other new sponsors confirmed over the last 18 months, Avid, Quantel and Viaccess-Orca’s membership acknowledges SVG Europe’s growing influence across the dynamic sports broadcasting industry. We look forward to running long-form content about each on our website and newsletter, as well as welcoming their representatives to the multiple technology summits planned for the rest of 2015.”
