England’s most successful football club, Liverpool FC, has embarked upon a project to revamp completely its hugely popular online video platform.

With the new service, the five times European Cup/Champion’s League winners will offer multi-platform compatibility, asset management and full control of video syndication from the prime sporting website which has seen traffic of over 110 million page impressions a month.

The solution is built on the Stream Media Platform from StreamUK who says it was chosen ahead of international competition thanks to a combination of the ability to solve technical problems, the quality of transcoding and the capability to fully integrate with the web CMS.

The solution also takes advantage of a Level3 global content delivery network (CDN), which proved itself during a two-week blind trial with Liverpool’s testing community. StreamUK says that the network successfully demonstrated its ability to deliver Luis Suarez-like quality video to all corners of the globe.

Commented Michael Crowder, Systems and Development Manager at Liverpool FC: ‘We are committed to delivering the very best in functionality and quality to our fans. StreamUK shares these aims and has the know-how to realise them.’
