New pay-TV channel for U.S. sports installs broadcast management system Avatega.
Now, Avatega from Arvato Systems is also being implemented at SPORT1 US. Free-TV channel SPORT1 already trusts in the IT solution for channel management processes. The new pay-TV channel is part of the Sport1 GmbH. Its program focusses on U.S. sports. Many broadcasting rights were extended or newly acquired. These include the rights for the National Football League (NFL), the National Basketball Association (NBA), but also rights for NCAA College Football and NCAA College Basketball. Since early August, the channel can be received in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Arvato Systems offers a wide range of solutions for the broadcast and new media industry, which are used in 30 countries worldwide. Avatega is based on technology from Microsoft and allows comprehensive media-related functions. The software is able to plan and manage license rights and optimize the program scheduling. Additional options, such as the workflow configuration, can be flexibly configured.
