Live Video Powerhouse EVS Selects Brightcove’s Zencoder Service to Drive VOD Second Screen Content

Brightcove 9/12/2013

Today, we are very excited to announce that EVS has partnered with Brightcove to power transcoding for its C-Cast solution, a suite of tools that allows broadcasters to instantly deliver complementary content to viewers on their mobile and connected devices during live events. Based in Belgium, EVS is a leader in the live broadcasting digital video systems space. It boasts an array of major sports and entertainment content customers including Canal+, the premium French pay television provider.

Here's how it works: content providers use C-Cast to create clips from their broadcast workflow that are then transcoded through the Brightcove Zencoder service; the clips are then made available to publish online and are easily ingested into a broadcaster's video publishing platform--such as Brightcove Video Cloud--or any second screen application.

Essentially, C-Cast empowers broadcasters to utilize content that would otherwise be wasted--consider the clips from multiple camera angles that never make it to your television screen, for example--and repackage that content so that consumers can enjoy near-live, complementary content via mobile apps and broadcasters can monetize that content to derive further business benefit. This is all thanks to timely transcoding from our Zencoder service!
