Front Row Tennis Streams Live Events on NeuLion Video Platform
Front Row Tennis and NeuLion have announced a partnership for a new video streaming service using NeuLion’s platform.
Front Row Tennis will deliver live matches, highlights, and archive matches that give viewers an all-access pass to tournaments. Launching for the YP Challenger of Dallas USTA Pro Circuit tournament on Feb. 28, Front Row Tennis will produce a six-camera shoot and encoding content using NeuLion’s Encoding Software for HD adaptive delivery.
The 30-plus match series will be streamed live through the Front Row Tennis video player where fans have access to HD quality video of matches and highlights. Using NeuLion’s Live Editing Feature, editors will immediately archive and publish the match as soon as it is over and cut highlights for the navigation bar in the video player. As a visual marker, fans can use the schedule strip on top of the video player to watch the current match or go back and watch archived matches.
“We wanted to deliver a live video experience that was second to none and chose to work with NeuLion based on their track record delivering live events,” says Marc Lemke, President of Front Row Tennis. “We were so impressed with the user experience they provided for other top sports properties and were able to customize an experience specifically around the game of tennis versus a generic player.”
“Tennis has a terrific following and we’re excited to provide live streaming coverage as well as the wrap around services for Front Row Tennis” says Marc Sokol, EVP of Marketing and Business Development at NeuLion. “It’s about giving our partners a deeper way to connect with a passionate fan base, expand their viewership, and capitalize on digital media to grow their business.”
