Elemental Technologies has announced that deltatre, the sports media provider, has signed Elemental solutions to deliver expanded coverage of the Rugby World Cup, which begins on 9th September.
Deltatre is using Elemental Server to provide near real-time turnaround of match highlights for the official event website and mobile applications.
Highlights will be available on mobile apps on iPhone, Blackberry, iPad, Android and Windows Phone 7.
Chris Catling, head of operations at deltatre media, said: ‘Speed, ease-of-use and high quality support are the distinguishing qualities that motivated us to use Elemental’.
‘Due to the complexity of the solution we are delivering at the Rugby World Cup, Elemental have been an excellent choice. They have seamlessly integrated into the workflow between our editing operations and publishing via the deltatre CMS’.
‘In total, 22 outputs are delivered to different locations feeding seven different platforms. The pure speed at which we can do the encoding is faster than real-time. This enables us to provide a superior service to our client as well as a top-quality experience for viewers’.
Sam Blackman, CEO and chairman of Elemental Technologies, said: ‘We are honoured to partner with deltatre as it looks to deliver superior quality entertainment to rugby fans globally across PCs, tablets and mobile devices’.
