Anvato Delivers TV Everywhere With Software-Based Platform
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Anvato as a corporate sponsor. The Mountain View, CA-based company offers an end-to-end TV Everywhere platform for broadcasters. Its hybrid cloud architecture addresses the most stringent requirements of sports broadcasters for live encoding, multiplatform clip editing, delivery, and workflow.
“SVG has been the place where sports executives not only learn about but also share innovative solutions that provide the next-generation user experiences to viewers,” says Alper Turget, CEO/president, Anvato Inc. “It is the right forum for Anvato to showcase its products since we push the boundaries of what is possible with cutting-edge technology for multiscreen live and on-demand video.”
Fox Sports recently launched its FS1 and FS2 all-sports networks on mobile and desktops entirely using Anvato and is poised to launch 40 additional regional sports networks. Additional media companies that rely on Anvato’s platform include NBC Universal, Univision, Gray TV, NFL, Hearst Television, and Post-Newsweek.
As broadcasting television over the Internet has evolved, in-house solutions have become complex, rigid, and difficult to maintain. Anvato alleviates this operational headache by efficiently collapsing the entire encoding and video-distribution infrastructure into one cost-effective, easy-to-use platform.
The company’s platform is 100% software that runs seamlessly on off-the-shelf hardware both locally and in the public cloud. This unique and nimble approach provides quick deployments, maximum resilience, limitless scale, robust features, and high quality.
Anvato’s features include live linear encoding and capture; file editing, repackaging, and syndication; workflow and metadata automation; dynamic ad insertion; system-health monitoring; and robust analytics and reporting.
