Brightcove transcoding helped EVS show multiview camera angles

Cloud video platform vendor Brightcove has just revealed in a blog how its Zencoder cloud-based encoding service was used by EVS during the 2014 Football World Cup in Brazil.

According to the company it offered a new perspective as viewers could review multiple camera angles as the games were being played. This made use of Brightcove's Zencoder for transcoding for its power transcoding for the EVS C-Cast multimedia content delivery platform. C-Cast allows broadcasters to deliver instantly complementary content to viewers on web and mobile devices during live events. Host Broadcasting Services (HBS), the main provider of broadcast and interactive services for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, managed the implementation and integration of C-Cast to deploy second-screen experiences.

“We took second screen content to the next level by allowing broadcasters to deliver multi-camera action review, key highlights browsing and review, stats-related content and player, team and personality tracking,” said Nicolas Bourdon, SVP Marketing at EVS. “This completely enhanced the at-home viewing experience and judging by the stats, viewers were pleased and eager to view the World Cup this way.”
