Roberts Communications Network, the world’s largest provider of simulcast horse and greyhound racing video services, has turned to Elemental Technologies for over-the-top TV, IPTV and desktop and mobile streaming video services. Roberts standardised on Elemental video processing following an intensive six-month competitive shootout.
“In the simulcast racing world, video quality and low latency are deal makers. We prefer to own and provision every aspect of our acquisition and delivery chain to assure we stand apart with scalable multiplatform video delivery and outstanding customer service,” said Todd Roberts, president and CEO of Roberts Communications Network. “Video encoding is a significant long-term investment and needs to serve both current and future needs. We want to move forward with an industry leader at the forefront of internet-delivered video. Elemental is that leader.”
Elemental systems will also support the Roberts’ launch later this year of the industry’s first comprehensive high definition streaming package for the simulcast racing industry.
