ViewCast streams sports for the BBC

The BBC is using Viewcast’s Niagara Pro streaming encoders to stream a number of high-profile sporting events live on the company’s Web site. Fourteen Niagara Pros were installed to provide a range of services, including coverage of the Beijing Olympics, and will continue to provide coverage of sports throughout the year.

The Niagara Pro installation was part of an upgrade of the corporation’s existing services that was completed in time for the main summer sporting events, including the Euro 2008 soccer tournament and the Wimbledon tennis championships. Content is streamed in flash format in the 16:9 aspect ratio.

The Niagara Pro is a rack-mountable encoder designed for high-quality, high-resolution video capturing and streaming. This dual-channel encoder is ideal for Internet TV, webcasting, streaming training videos and as a high-performance solution for video capture to file for archiving as well as repurposing video for Internet and intranet distribution.
