deltatre and EVS partner to extend digital and broadcast convergence

Digital sport market leader deltatre have struck a deal with top live video production technology provider EVS for the joint delivery of the 2015/2016 UEFA Champions League season. The announcement follows a multi-year collaboration between the two companies, which have been developing digital and broadcast services for major sport events’ coverage since 2007. 

Carlo De Marchis, CPO at deltatre, said: "We are delighted to continue working with EVS and to keep fostering innovation in digital sports. This partnership is firmly in line with deltatre’s position of innovative integrator."

Under the deal, EVS’ C-Cast cloud-based multimedia solution and XT3 video servers will combine with deltatre’s Diva and Magma products, providing clients with high-value solutions that boast a smooth integration among different technologies. The move is also significant for both rights holders and sports audiences - offering broadcasters further forays into TV-based services, as well as evolving the streaming landscape for fans to consume content on the many different platforms available today.


"Through this partnership with deltatre, EVS furthers its strategy of enabling customers to build audiences in new and meaningful ways. Not only we will heighten the reach and experience of the world’s most important sporting events, but we also fully intend to continue innovating around enhanced sports experiences on all devices," said Luc Doneux, EVP CCO at EVS.
