BBright, the French specialist in high-quality media content creation, transport and distribution solutions, announces that Eurosport, Europe’s leading sports channel, has chosen its high-density Multi-TS playout solution to supply HD contents to its digital platforms!

Eurosport broadcasts numerous sporting events through its digital platform and the collaboration with BBright has made it possible to deploy an efficient and scalable solution to provide non-live content to these different distribution channels.

BBright Multi-TS technology was thus chosen for its unique specifications: up to 50 video streams generated on a single platform, integrated automation to facilitate channel management, and use of transport stream files as a pivot format. And no need for live encoders to distribute this content: The Multi-TS BBright playout natively generates its streams in transport stream format over IP, including HEVC, UHD, and HDR formats! Thanks to BBright technology, the real-time processing of the “BMedia” software engine ensures perfect interoperability with all kind of receivers.
Benoît Elshout, Eurosport broadcast engineer, said about this choice: “The Multi-TS BBright has perfectly met our expectations. Both dense and easy to integrate into our existing workflow, this solution has already enabled us to deploy more than ten flows on our sites in Paris and London to ensure total redundancy of our services “.

“We are very happy to have been able to collaborate with a leader like Eurosport, very advanced on all IP topics. The pure software and scalable approach of our solutions allows them to easily upgrade their services, up to ultra HD “adds Guillaume Arthuis, CEO of BBright.

Multi-TS UI

BBright Multi-TS is already deployed by many customers for a wide variety of applications: origination of Ultra HD HDR thematic channels, management of disaster recovery loops, generation of barker channels on IPTV or OTT networks… With its intuitive web interface and unique scalability , the Multi-TS has its own internal automation: the perfect solution to minimize the operating costs of a broadcast playout while ensuring compatibility with the latest technologies: Ultra HD, HDR and NGA audio.
