Aventus® SaaS Provides Simplified Multiscreen Workflow, Elastic Scalability and Cost Savings

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - iStreamPlanet today announced that EverSport.TV will rely on iStreamPlanet's live video workflow service Aventus to live stream the XXII Central American and Caribbean Games to connected viewers around the world. EverSport.TV will provide complete online coverage of more than 5,700 participating athletes in thirty-six sport disciplines kicking off with Grammy Award® Winning Artist Ricky Martin performing live at the Opening Ceremonies. Veracruz 2014 is brought to EverSport.tv from producer Abaculi Media.

"Working with global online broadcaster Eversport.TV has allowed us to extend our reach to a much larger viewership," said Kevin Sanford, Executive Producer, Abaculi Media.

 "In today's world where people want content at their fingertips, we had to enable a desktop and mobile connection for the sports fans around the world. Enabling IP devices globally brings a whole new level of exposure to the games, inspiring the organization, the teams and the athletes to deliver two weeks of thrilling, live competition," said Michael Williams, Executive Producer IP, Abaculi Media.

"Our mission at EverSport.tv is to bring a growing number of global, live sports events to an eager audience, especially events that aren't available on traditional TV," said Wayne Sieve, CEO of EverSport. "Using the Aventus SaaS allows us to quickly scale up when we're streaming a large number of simultaneous events and scale down when that event is over. This lowers our costs significantly compared to building out and maintaining our own live encoding and multiscreen packaging infrastructure."
