Elemental powers deltatre highlights at RWC
deltatre is utilising Elemental Technologies’ Elemental Server to provide near realtime turnaround of match highlights for the official Rugby World Cup event website and various mobile applications. The workflow sees adaptive bit-rate game clips delivered via the Akamai HD Network to deltatre’s DIVA video player using Microsoft Smooth Streaming for Silverlight.
“Speed, ease-of-use and high quality support are the distinguishing qualities that motivated us to use Elemental,” said Chris Catling, head of operations at deltatre media. “Due to the complexity of the solution we are delivering at the Rugby World Cup, Elemental have been an excellent choice. They have seamlessly integrated into the workflow between our editing operations and publishing via the deltatre CMS. In total, 22 outputs are delivered to different locations feeding seven different platforms. The pure speed at which we can do the encoding is faster than real-time. This enables us to provide a superior service to our client as well as a top-quality experience for viewers.”
