WORLD SPORT GROUP UPGRADES OPS TO EXPLOIT THE LATEST IN STREAMING TECHNOLOGY
Asia’s largest sports company, World Sport Group (WSG), has revealed that it is upgrading its online infrastructure to support the latest in streaming technology. From its headquarters in Singapore, WSG delivers almost 600 sporting events annually and over 5,000 hours of programming across Asia.
The new online platform relies on Imagine Communications’ SelenioFlex Live encoders, designed to deliver massive amounts of sports content to multiple platforms. Live satellite feeds will be passed as HD-SDI with embedded audio to the SelenioFlex Live encoders. The encoders reliably and efficiently create over-the-top (OTT), mobile, Web and live streaming output formats which are then multiplexed and sent to WSG’s content delivery network.
WSG generates a significant volume of media content daily,and Imagine Communications believes that it will stand to benefit from enhanced encoding software and a platform that is simple to manage and largely hands-off. WSG will also use the SelenioFlex Live Manager software to centralise the management, monitoring and control of the encoders. The platform provides failover and self-healing recovery capabilities to help minimise disruption to the service.
