Elemental Technologies, a supplier of video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, has confirmed that German public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) has deployed Elemental Live video processing systems to perform 24/7 encoding of live content.
Elemental systems allow NDR to create video streams of programme broadcasts, news and special events for publicly and freely accessible web portals and mobile apps. The deployment is supported by Elemental partner LOGIC Media Solutions in Germany.
