Pac-12 Networks has formed a partnership with Elemental Technologies to provide live simulcast streaming for the Pac-12 Now TV everywhere service, as well as the video processing for its YouTube international subscription service.

Each year, Pac-12 Networks will deliver live coverage of 850 sporting events to fans worldwide via television, the Internet and mobile devices. In August, Pac-12 Networks expanded its reach to international audiences by creating the first ever live streaming 24x7 subscription sports channel on YouTube.

"From the very beginning we have been focused on bringing Pac-12 fans closer to their favourite teams by delivering great content 24x7 across various devices. In order to do that we need a vendor like Elemental who has a proven track record and matches our focus on the fan experience," said David Aufhauser, vice president and general manager of Pac-12 Digital. "Elemental encoders provide the absolute best-in-class encoding quality and reliability required to satisfy the expectations of passionate Pac-12 fans."
