When Aragón Televisión acquired the rights to broadcast the Champions’ League in Spain – it quickly became apparent a unique experience was required. They wanted football fans in Spain to be able to enjoy games interactively via the Internet - ensuring that their viewers do not miss a single moment of the all important action.
Aside from airing games via traditional broadcasting, Aragón wanted everybody in Spain with a broadband connection to be able to watch the Champions’ League in a completely new way. As live streaming is becoming an obvious choice in order for broadcasters to break down time constraints associated with live events.
Aragón Televisión selected us at Flumotion to help, and with our Streaming Platform we created a unique branded viewing experience. The Flumotion Platform supports a range of innovative features that include real time transmission, pausing and resuming of live streams, simultaneous viewing, rich information, multi-tab functionality and a branded player. Until now these kinds of features were only available to TV viewers with high end PVRs / DVRs, Flumotion now delivers these features to anybody with a computer and internet connection.
“Our full service solutions enable us to offer customised services not only to major TV stations, but also to smaller content providers, who don’t want to stay behind in the rapid development of video on the Internet”, says Jean Noel Saunier, Flumotion’s CEO.
Aragón Televisión have a strong commitment to the development of new broadcasting technologies, recently becoming the first in Spain to broadcast in widescreen (16:9) and the ground breaking implementation of an experimental TV channel in high definition (HD).
As an end-to-end streaming provider, we at Flumotion cover the whole streaming process, from capturing the video signal at the client’s facilities, to designing an interactive interface that creates community loyalty around the content of both, broadcasters and brands.
