Tellyo Delivers Streaming of La Liga Content in China; Video Clipping for GOL, OneSoccer, and UBEAT
LONDON(16 Sep 2019)
Tellyo, leading developers of a cloud-based live video production suite, today announced that MediaPro, the Spanish t.v., film, and digital media production and distribution firm, has used the Tellyo platform to stream, clip, and archive live video and audio for its La Liga, GOL, OneSoccer and e-sports UBEAT content over the past year.
With Tellyo, La Liga pre-match content was livestreamed to La Liga’s account on the Sina Weibo platform, enabling Chinese in-country fans to view unique behind-the-scenes moments of players entering the stadium and warming up. MediaPro makes heavy use of Tellyo’s archive capabilities, with some of its TV channels recording 24/7 within Tellyo. This DVR access for linear TV sports channels provides producers with on the digital team to engage fans during live events and during interstitial moments, ensuring high engagement. OneSoccer accesses a 7-day recording of Canadian soccer to create highlight packages and cut entire matches for delivery to the client’s own CMS, helping to amplify Canadian soccer. During the 2019 Canadian soccer season, there were 2.8 million views for content created or shared via Tellyo.
“With sports fans increasingly wanting more and better content 24/7, we’re always looking for unique and innovative ways to help our sports clients engage with fans through audio and visual content,” said Natxo Imaz Erdoiza, digital projects CTO, MediaPro. “Tellyo is the perfect partner for us – a team and toolset capable of maximizing content opportunities and delivering the technical expertise we require.”
Perhaps one of the more creative applications of the Tellyo platform was the use of audio rights for global La Liga audiences, in which ‘Twitter Radio’ streams were created for live football matches. Here, audio commentary only was livestreamed from La Liga matches, accompanied by a short video, which contained an image of the commentary team, with audio visualization played in a loop. Tellyo delivered 203 livestreams, with more than 1 million views and 377 hours of livestreams.
“The engagement of global sports fans with MediaPro’s content was made for Tellyo; they presented us with the opportunity to create a wide range of options for their producers,” said Richard Collins, CEO of Tellyo. “The only limitation for MediaPro was the imagination of ourselves and their producers; with our updated platform, we expect to exceed this past season’s applications.”
Tellyo will demonstrate its new platform features at the IBC Conference in Amsterdam, from Friday, September 13ththrough Tuesday, September 17that the RAI Convention Center, in Stand #14.B15.
