Net Insight solution selected to deliver live content to bookmakers
Net Insight has announced that SIS – a leading supplier of products and services to the online and retail betting markets – has selected Net Insight’s Sye solution to provide delivery of live betting content to betting shops and bookmaker trading rooms worldwide.
The partnership, which secures SIS as a Net Insight preferred partner for the global betting market, will enable live content from SIS’ extensive portfolio to be delivered to betting shops and trading rooms across Net Insight’s ultra-low latency Sye platform. The move further provides clients with a cost effective, highly-reliable and differentiated product set that allows them to compete in various markets. SIS’s decision to implement Net Insight’s Sye ensures a more cost-effective video delivery over the internet than traditional satellite services.
Sye will provide content from SIS channel playout services to SIS set-top boxes in betting shops and trading rooms around the world, with the Sye streaming Software Development Kit (SDK) client integrated into the local set-top box.
The SIS-operated Sye streaming Content Delivery Network (CDN) will be easy to scale up and add multi-screen support also to mobile devices.
“Our partnership with Net Insight and their Sye platform enables SIS to deliver more content and be more flexible in our service delivery to our customers,” said Dave Gill, head of streaming for SIS. “Using Net Insight’s Sye makes sense as it can deliver improved ultra-low latency, live streaming in a betting environment where every second counts.”
“Sye is a forward thinking, game changing solution for the OTT market and this win, targeting bookmakers, shows one of many possible solutions of Sye,” said Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. “With our innovative technology and SIS’ strong presence in the sports and betting market we are confident that our partnership can bring new innovative services to this market.”
The initial order value for the first phase is less than SEK 1 million and implementation will take place before year-end.
Net Insight launched the Sye solution in the second quarter this year. Sye is developed to bring back a live and interactive TV experience for TV users over the internet. The Sye solution has a diversity of applications and can, as in this case, be deployed as a video delivery solution over internet to bookmakers.
