SVG Europe welcomes RR Media as new Gold Sponsor
SVG Europe is delighted to announce its newest Gold Sponsor is RR Media, which works in partnership with the world’s leading sports organisations to transform live and sports content into valuable media assets.
RR Media’s complete ecosystem of digital media services maximise the potential of live and entertainment content, covering four main areas: smart global content distribution network with an optimised combination of satellite, fiber and the Internet; content management and channel origination; sports, news and live events; and online video services.
RR Media provides scalable, converged digital media services to more than 1,000 broadcasters, content owners, sports leagues and rights’ holders. Every day the company manages and delivers over 24,000 hours of broadcast content, over 4,000 hours of online video and VOD content and over 350 hours of premium sports and live events. The company delivers content to 95% of the world’s population reaching viewers of multiplatform operators, VOD platforms, online video and direct-to-home services.
Sports is an integral part of the RR Media business, and accordingly it works with leading sports bodies worldwide including federations, leagues, clubs, broadcasters and international organisations. solaRR Active, RR Media’s customised sports media service platform, enables sports organisations to maximise exposure and increase revenues through a full range of media services while giving them secure global access and full control over their media assets.
The NFL, NBA Premium TV, Arsenal FC, the International Judo Federation, Fox Sports, IMG, MP & Silva, the Laureus World Sports Awards and Fight Sports are among the leading names using RR Media’s complete range of sports media services.
One of its most recent developments saw RR Media introduce a subscription-based online platform for any device so fans of sports organisations, clubs or federations can access and enjoy video content wherever they are and on any device. The platform is already being used by FC Barcelona.
Explaining the decision to join the growing list of SVG Europe Gold Sponsors, an RR Media spokesperson comments: “Sports is a key focus for RR Media, especially in Europe, so we are looking forward to working together with SVG Europe in order to further establish our position as a leading provider of sports media solutions. As the sports media industry evolves and audiences change their viewing habits, RR Media will play a key role providing innovative sports media solutions to meet the needs of sports broadcasters and rights’ holders now and into the future.
“RR Media continues to introduce a unique set of innovative solutions to the top names in the sports industry, helping to broaden the reach and availability of premium sports content to worldwide audiences, enriching viewers’ experience, generating new revenues, and bridging the gap between the traditional broadcast world and new digital media capabilities.”
