EVS Selects Brightcove Zencoder to power second-screen content

EVS, a provider of live video production systems, has partnered with cloud content services firm Brightcove to power transcoding for its C-Cast solution

C-Cast is a suite of tools that allow broadcasters to deliver complementary content to viewers on second screen devices during live events.

By using Brightcove’s Zencoder cloud-based encoding service to power C-Cast transcoding, EVS will let sports and entertainment broadcast customers from around the world create clips from their live broadcast workflow to deliver a wide-range of second screen content to audiences on connected devices, the firm said.

“C-Cast is a transformative technology that empowers our customers to maximise their existing content by editing, distributing and monetising clips from live events,” said Johann Schreurs, market solution manager, remote interface, at EVS.

“At the same time, it offers audiences unique second screen connectivity to near-live and exclusive content that enhances the overall viewing experience. Our broadcast customers demand a high-quality, highly reliable service, and we chose Zencoder to handle the transcoding of clips due to its unparalleled performance, proven dependability and scalable global footprint.”
