Broadcast, e-sports, cinema and events advanced streaming solutions provider NativeWaves has delivered what it describes as a digital broadcast innovation for the 2019 MotoGP World Championship, available on the MotoGP Second Screen App to viewers in Austria.
The technology allows viewers to use their mobile devices to choose their preferred perspective – perfectly synced with their TV screens. The service debuted as a pilot test for the MotoGP Austria Grand Prix in Spielberg on August 11th.
“We are thrilled about this collaboration that transforms the way that broadcasters can deliver live sports,” declared Marcel Hasenrader, CEO, NativeWaves. “Broadcasters will be able to engage viewers by offering additional content seamlessly across multiple devices, while viewer behaviour analytics enable them to enhance and tailor the user experience, creating potential for new revenue streams.”
NativeWaves says its technology for broadcast provides a seamless and synchronised experience across multiple screens, enabling viewers to watch additional content without the limitations of TV where only one camera angle is broadcast at any time.
It delivers ultra-low latency streams which NativeWaves says are faster than TV, while optimising bit-rates and quality. NativeWaves’ technology integrates easily into existing broadcast processes while maintaining the integrity of the original content.
