Aventus SaaS Accelerates Time to Market for Live Multiscreen Broadcaster

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - iStreamPlanet, the leader in live, announced today that online broadcaster EverSport.tv selected iStreamPlanet to provide live encoding and multiscreen packaging for EverSport's distribution of the 17th Asian Games 2014 via the company's Aventus service. During the Incheon Asian Games, which took place from September 14th-October 4th, EverSport delivered almost 1400 hours of live broadcasts via the web and online media devices to a global connected audience.

EverSport chose Aventus based on the service's advanced feature set, flexible pricing models and speed to market. EverSport was able to provision, configure, test and deploy multiple live channels in a matter of days, taking advantage of critical path features including digital rights management, multiple format support and HD quality output.

In addition to live encoding and multiscreen packaging via Aventus, EverSport is relying on iStreamPlanet's live events team for content acquisition and ingest services to acquire the live Asian Games feeds.

"We are very excited to support EverSport in meeting the demands of the global, multiscreen viewer who wants to experience all the excitement of live sporting events taking place all around the world," said Jennifer Baisch, vice president of marketing for iStreamPlanet. "Aventus helps broadcasters of all sizes launch their live events and channels quickly and reliably."

iStreamPlanet recently added new features to Aventus including support for Nielsen audience tracking, new telemetry metrics for tracking channel health, and optimizations for RTMP ingest.
