German broadcaster NDR to use Elemental live video processing

German public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) has agreed to use multiscreen technology specialist Elemental Technologies’ live video processing systems to encode live content. 

The Elemental Live video processing systems will allow NDR to create video streams of programme broadcasts, news and special events for publicly accessible web portals and mobile apps.

The deployment is supported by Elemental partner Logic Media Solutions in Germany, with NDR to use the agreement to scale back its use of an external service provider in favour of an internal transcoding workflow.
