BBC and deltatre renew agreement16 August 2013
BBC Sport’s football programming contract with deltatre, which has provided results and graphics for the UK broadcaster since 2006, has been renewed for an additional three years. The contract encompasses all BBC coverage of live football matches and related studio programming, with deltatre collating match results data and powering TV graphics.
The service provision has been extended beyond football to cover a variety of other sporting events including World Cup Rowing, Amateur Boxing, Cross Country Championships and the upcoming 2013 Rugby League World Cup. deltatre and the BBC have worked together for seven years across a number of global sporting events, including the 2010 South Africa World Cup and the 2012 European Championships.
In 2011, deltatre opened an office in MediaCityUK, Salford, allowing the company to support the development and maintenance of services such as the Augmented Reality (AR) Graphic System used on Match of the Day.
Hugo Sharman, director of deltatre north, said, “We are delighted to continue our graphics provision with the BBC. Our offering has already grown considerably since its inception and we look forward to providing more exciting and compelling content as we go forward.”
