Elemental Creating Video on Demand for ESPN.com
Elemental, today named one of America's Most Promising Companies by Forbes, is working with ESPN, the worldwide leader in sports programming, to create the on-demand video offered on the ESPN family of websites and ESPN iPhone, iPad and Android applications. ESPN is using Elemental™ Server to create 14 distinct video outputs for adaptive bit rate playback on each of these platforms. This enables the sports network to put high-quality digital highlight packages online faster than ever before to satisfy fan demand.
In the ESPN deployment, Elemental Server quickly converts a variety of inputs, including MPEG-2, DVCPRO HD and MOV files, to a wide range of web-based outputs. These assets are made immediately available for viewers to watch any time on their platform of choice. In addition to the ESPN.com flagship site, Elemental Server also powers the video for ESPN’s mobile applications and regional properties, such as ESPN New York and ESPN Dallas. Foreign language-speaking fans can find Elemental video on the internationally-focused ESPN Deportes.
