Vimond IO for FloSports

Solution


FloSports was looking for a way to bring in live sporting event streams and edit and share their content remotely.

  • Live sports streams are pushed from an existing streaming engine to an assigned S3 bucket.  This creates a single ingest point for Vimond IO Live to access.

  • FloSports uses IO for quickly clipping from Live streams, enhancing videos with graphics, and complex editing.

  • Vimond IO supports publishing to configured social media accounts and FloSports downstream systems.

Result

Using IO expedites the FloSports workflow by allowing live feeds to be quickly and simply ingested, edited, and distributed to social media and the FloSports CMS.  

No matter the sports vertical, content coordinators can use the content from their live feeds to share to their social media sites and internal CMS.
