DAZN Group has launched a new live sports distribution service, to be known as DAZN CONNECT.
The company said the service offers one of the largest live sports content networks in the world, with over 30,000 events across multiple genres and leagues.
The service distributes content over IP, is Cloud-native and AWS-integrated. Delivery options include software-based SDI decoding and transport appliances, software-only transport applications and an AWS Direct Connect option for customers with existing AWS accounts and connectivity. DAZN CONNECT also fully supports SRT.
DAZN said BT Sport, NBC Sports, Fox Netherlands and ESPN are already using DAZN CONNECT.
“We now have more sports content on our network than anyone else in the industry. Combine this with our technological innovation and with customer satisfaction at the core of our service, DAZN CONNECT is well positioned to take some big steps in the coming months,” said Gareth Rees, SVP Business Development.
“Driven by the demands of sports broadcasting and fans’ viewing habits, DAZN CONNECT offers a faster, more intelligent way of receiving live sport. DAZN CONNECT is built in the Cloud to deliver the lowest latency, highest quality and the most secure sports distribution service. With an innovative contribution service, clients can supply live sports back onto the DAZN network, so local coverage can be made available globally, offering up further exposure and coverage for rights owners.”
