RRSat: Global sporting portfolio expanded12 September 2014
New scalable digital media services offering a range of solutions for content preparation, management and distribution, as well as converging broadcast and online video, are the IBC focus for RRSat.
The past months have seen RRsat expand its sporting distribution portfolio, including partnering with The Global Video Network (TGVN) to deliver coverage of the Winter Universiade games to the CBS Sports Network. The Universiade is a sporting event open to students from universities around the world.
In addition, with the arrival of 4K capabilities at the RRsat Europe base in West London, RRsat announced it was to provide partner EBU with the uplink facilities to carry the 4K feeds of the World Cup to the Asian footprint of EBU’s Eurovision network.
RRsat’s offering covers four main areas: a global content distribution network utilising satellite, fibre and the open internet; content management and playout; sports, news and live events; and online video services. RRsat says it enables content owners and broadcasters to optimise and monetise their content further by reaching more audiences on more devices.
