QTV Sports using Streamstar solutions for innovative streaming services

SVG Europe by David Davies

The UK-based sports live streaming and digital content strategy provider is delivering a wealth of high quality video coverage using a multi-camera set-up and live streaming solutions from Streamstar.

Working across platforms, QTV Sports has in the past two years alone streamed 1,700 hours of sports events for more than a dozen national governing bodies and international federations, achieving audiences of over three million viewers in 160 countries. It has also secured the rights to broadcast some of the most followed sports around the world, including tournaments hosted by the ICC and British Tennis. Match highlights, interviews, and behind-the-scenes features via real-time social media clips are all part of the QTV offering.

Jack McGill, CEO of QTV Sports, comments: ?From day one, it was vital for us to employ an efficient and cost-effective system to achieve seamless remote productions to meet the demands of delivering live sports content to hundreds of thousands of sports fans. After considering various options from other manufacturers, we chose Streamstar?s innovative streaming solutions because of their versatility and ease-of-use. We felt that this would give our viewers unrivalled access to an extensive range of sports content in real-time.?

Explaining the need for cost efficiency, McGill adds: ?With avid fans demanding anytime, anywhere content, the call for streaming live sports events of any disciplinary has snowballed. Therefore it was essential for us to implement a remote production solution that would stand the test of time and remain a long-term investment. We were looking to develop a more cost effective live sports production model for our clients. The team had been following Streamstar?s progress. After some experimentation with other providers, we proudly became the first UK-based operator of Streamstar?s groundbreaking live streaming infrastructure.? read more...
