BBC Broadcast wins ESPN Classic Sport playout contract

BBC Broadcast has won the contract to playout the channels of ESPN Classic Sport, one of the fastest growing networks in Europe. The dedicated French and Italian channels will be played out to France and Italy from the Broadcast Center in West London starting July 1. Beginning August 1 the channel will playout localized feeds from the Broadcast Center in English, German and Dutch.

ESPN Classic Sport decided to move its operations to BBC Broadcast playout center to take advantage of the “ingest once, use many” architecture, where media is stored digitally on a central store, enabling easy and cost effective manipulation and playout of content. Using Omnibus Colossus and Pixel Power Clarity, network directors will be able to display real-time on-screen graphics changing the look and feel of the channels with increased levels of added value, such as player lists, career stats and awards won.
