Brightcove Inc. has announced that live production system provider EVS is using Brightcove’s Zencoder cloud-based encoding technologies.
Zencoder has been incorporated into the EVC C-Cast platform, which is a suite of tools that allow broadcasters to instantly deliver second-screen content during live events.
EVS’s live production systems are widely used in major live sporting and other events and C-Cast is designed as a simple add-on to any EVS production systems.
To date, the Zencoder service has processed more than half a million second screen content clips for EVS and its C-Cast customers including Canal+, the French premium pay TV channel.
“C-Cast is a transformative technology that empowers our customers to maximize their existing content by editing, distributing and monetizing clips from live events,” said Johann Schreurs, market solution manager, remote interface, at EVS in a statement. “At the same time, it offers audiences unique second screen connectivity to near-live and exclusive content that enhances the overall viewing experience. Our broadcast customers demand a high-quality, highly reliable service, and we chose Zencoder to handle the transcoding of clips due to its unparalleled performance, proven dependability and scalable global footprint.”
