ATP Media has selected M2A Media’s IP transport product M2A Connect to power the delivery of its live tournament broadcast feeds.
M2A Connect is being employed to manage the acquisition of streams from third party suppliers and their onward distribution, ensuring streams are adequately secured. It also manages event-based routing and entitlements, ensuring that the correct feeds are made available to the correct takers, including ATP Tennis TV (ATP Media’s direct to consumer OTT product) partners.
According to M2A Media, along with its live, cloud based, motion-compensated frame rate conversation feature (devised in association with InSync Technology and Hiscale), M2A Connect allows ATP Media the flexibility to manage subscriptions per tournament and offers an intuitive console to view schedules and confidence feeds of live match feeds.
Carolina Santos, head of broadcast operations and engineering at ATP Media said: “We were looking for a trusted service provider to help us add a new layer to our broadcast operations in the cloud and have greatly enjoyed working with M2A Media to find a live video solution that fits our needs.
“Our operations and scheduling capability is more streamlined and we now have live video workflows in the cloud in place that will allow for future growth. M2A’s knowledge of AWS Media Services and operational support really sets them apart and affords us even greater confidence in cloud technology.”
