beIN Asia Pacific, a media platform that offers live streaming of sporting events, has signed an agreement with Encompass to extend the latter’s existing contract services – playout, streaming and distribution. Encompass is a global technological company that dedicates its video solutions to TV networks, broadcasters, sports leagues and OTT providers.
For many years, Encompass has been delivering beIN sports feeds from the facility in Singapore. The partnership enables beIN Asia Pacific to meet the changing needs of live sports broadcasting as Encompass provides a range of services such as channel playout, global distribution, OTT/TVE streaming, live events, disaster recovery and radio.
“We are very pleased to extend our relationship with beIN Asia Pacific,” said Marc Bruce, Encompass’ managing director, APAC. “The demanding nature of managing multiple live sports services for both traditional TV platforms and beIN SPORTS CONNECT, which provides coverage for some of the world’s most prevalent sporting brands, makes our Singapore facility the perfect fit with its dynamic scope of capability offerings.”
Mike Kerr, managing director, beIN Asia Pacific, said: “Given the ever-changing landscape of beIN’s business and the flexibility a company like Encompass offers, it was a natural choice to continue to entrust our brand and services with Encompass.”
