Etere Launches Live Sports Player

11 April 2019

The Etere MAM solution expands with the Live Sports Player. Even with the unpredictability of sports events, Etere Live Sports Player allows users to broadcast multiple live playlists simultaneously.

The Etere Live Sports Player is a new addition to the Etere Media Asset Management (MAM) system and provides users with the software tools to manage live content and on-the-fly changes. Furthermore, users can use graphics templates for quick updates, especially in the area of sports broadcasting.

Managing live sporting events can be expensive for broadcasters. Broadcasters need to handle this premium content most effectively, enhancing the stories and adding value to engage their audiences and push the media out to more platforms with one seamless workflow. Etere makes live sports broadcasting more cost-efficient with the Etere Live Sports Player.

The Etere Live Sports Player is a fully customizable application that provides users with integrated software to stage live sports feeds to viewers. The Etere Live Sports Player combines the robust Etere MAM system with live studio production and fast-paced editorial, creative, and publishing workflows to accelerate your content-to-audience cycles. Suited to work on touchscreens, the controls are user-friendly, combining the video and audio switcher devices on one interface.
