TF1 uses Elemental Live to create all of the content delivered through MyTF1 portals. Most recently, TF1 deployed Elemental Live for live event capture and delivery of complete Rugby World Cup matches to its online viewing audience in France.
To deliver Rugby World Cup matches, TF1 formatted an incoming SDI feed into separate outputs for six different service providers across France.

Elemental Live was able to prepare all the IPTV content to meet the streaming requirements of each ISP from a single platform.
