French Professional Football League Takes Full Control With Dalet Flex

The Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) is using Dalet Flex, the cloud-native media logistics platform, to prepare and deliver high-value league match highlights to fans via digital channels.

LFP is the French governing body responsible for overseeing, organizing, and managing the top two football leagues in France, has selected Dalet Flex to accelerate the time-consuming process, automating ingest, preparation and publishing of the match highlight videos to YouTube and Dailymotion. 

Flex’s comprehensive production tools enable LFP to take advantage of new content monetization opportunities such as offering freemium match highlight video from the LFP website.

Beyond managing the large volume of video content, LFP must adhere to a tight publishing schedule. Matches take place from Friday night to Sunday night with live or near-live content aired by broadcast rights holders over the weekend. On Monday, the content rights revert back to the LFP who, in turn, use Dalet Flex to rapidly publish the match highlights. Dalet Flex simplifies content delivery by ensuring playlist information and metadata, including mapping from XML to asset metadata, is accurate and consistent. This streamlines the process of preparing and distributing content to LFP digital properties, ensuring fans can view match highlights on any device.

Dalet hosts and manages LFP’s cloud environment, lowering upfront investments and overall maintenance costs.
