DAZN UNVEILS GLOBAL LIVE SPORTS CONTENT DISTRIBUTION SERVICE

  • INTRODUCING DAZN CONNECT – A SINGLE DESTINATION SERVICE FOR ALL SPORTS VIDEO CONTENT

LONDON, 25 April 2019 – DAZN Group, the digital leader in global sports media, has launched a global, live sports content distribution service for rights holders, broadcasters and media partners called DAZN CONNECT.

With over 30,000 live sport events across multiple leagues and competitions, DAZN CONNECT offers access to one of the largest live sports content networks in the world.

Delivered over IP using the very latest video transport technologies, the broadcast distribution service enables clients to consolidate their acquisition and distribution requirements into one partner.

DAZN CONNECT launches supplying a range of sporting properties to broadcasters including BT Sport, Iqiyi, NBC Sports, Fox Soccer, Fox Netherlands and ESPN.

“We now have more sports content on our network than anyone else in the industry. Combine this with our technological innovation and with customer satisfaction at the core of our service, DAZN CONNECT is well positioned to take some big steps in the coming months,” said Gareth Rees, SVP Business Development.

“Driven by the demands of sports broadcasting and fans’ viewing habits, DAZN CONNECT offers a faster, more intelligent way of receiving live sport. DAZN CONNECT is built in the cloud to deliver the lowest latency, highest quality and the most secure sports distribution service. With an innovative contribution service, clients can supply live sports back onto the DAZN network, so local coverage can be made available globally, offering up further exposure and coverage for rights owners,” Gareth added.

DAZN CONNECT is cloud-native and AWS-integrated. Delivery options include software-based SDI decoding and transport appliances, software-only transport applications and an AWS Direct Connect option for customers with existing AWS accounts and connectivity. DAZN CONNECT also fully supports SRT.
