Video technology solutions company Edit.TV has signed a deal with Asian internet TV provider Allied Pacific Sports Network (APSN) that will see it provide APSN with a video service across more than 20 internet sites.
It will show football matches from leagues throughout the world, including the Premier League, the German Bundesliga and Brazil’s Campeonato.
Applications include the managing of event data in real time during the live streaming of a match. This allows subscribers to the service to flick back and watch events that have happened – such as goals or a red card – and then jump back to the live stream.
Edit.TV’s technology also enables matches to be automatically synchronised with relevant game data files to create event driven highlights, while the video on demand facility also allows for instant search by events or players from a particular league’s library.
The signing of the deal with APSN comes just weeks after Edit.TV’s cutting edge technology, which is backed by 17 patents, was made available to subscribers to the Liverpool FC TV website.
Fans accessing Liverpool FC TV are now able to search, edit and tag video content to suit their specific requirements, creating personalised match highlights by player and events.
Matt O’Connor, one of Edit.TV’s directors, said: “This is a stunning deal for Edit.TV and one that vindicates all the hard work in bringing our ground-breaking video technology solutions to market.
“We are delighted to be partnering with APSN at such an exciting time with their plans to launch a subscription-based internet television service across the entire Asian region showing exclusive football content from some of the most famous leagues in the world.”
Peter Schloss, chief executive of APSN, said: "APSN is revolutionising the way fans receive sports content in Asia and we are constantly looking for new and innovative techniques to further people’s viewing enjoyment.
“We are delighted to be working closely with Edit.TV across live, on-demand and archived content. Edit.TV’s dynamic solutions will provide our customers with a powerful, intuitive and engaging video service.”
