NeuLion will demonstrate how its next-generation NeuLion Digital Platform will allow European content right holders to securely stream live and on-demand video content of up to 4K resolution with HEVC and MPEG-DASH to devices including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and games consoles.
“We believe that sports and live entertainment will be a key driver for consumer adoption of 4K digital content. As operators continue to embrace TV Everywhere on multiple screens, NeuLion will provide sports and entertainment content rights holders with live and on-demand video delivery up to 4K on any consumer device,” said NeuLion co-founder executive vice-president Chris Wagner.
“In 2014 alone, NeuLion streamed more than 50,000 live events, reinforcing our view that access to live sports and entertainment on-the-go is a must for fans today.”
NeuLion’s partners include sports leagues and content providers including the NBA, NFL, NHL, the World Surf League, Sky and Univision. The firm’s end-to-end technology platform enables digital content management, distribution and monetisation for content owners around the world.
Earlier this year, NeuLion bought video technology specialist DivX in a US$62.5 million (€52.1 million) deal that it said will place it at the forefront of the 4K OTT video market and give it broader global reach.
