Online video services provider Ooyala has scored big with a contract to power video for ESPN.com, claimed to be the biggest sports site in the world.

Ooyala provides online video publishing, analytics and monetisation to global companies such as Dell, REI, Sephora, Bloomberg, Endemol, Fremantle Media and Telegraph Media.

ESPN is a huge coup for the firm who boasts that ESPN chose to partner with it principally for its ability to provide the video technology to enable the sports broadcaster to deliver the best possible fan experience on the web, engaging more fans and keep them watching longer.

Secondly, according to Ooyala President & CEO Jay Fulcher, ESPN was looking for an innovative partner to act as a “true extension” to its team to help them deliver high-quality video at scale, better utilise internal resources, and streamline the management of videos and related data. The Ooyala technology will enable ESPN to playout HD content to a range of platforms including mobile devices, media tablets, browsers, set-top boxes (STBs) and connected TVs.
