SES has launched a centralised platform that connects content and rights owners with broadcasters and operators so that sports can be easily procured and then distributed via satellite, fibre or other IP infrastructure. The system uses a single B2B user interface.
The new SES Sports Content Orchestration Enabler (SCORE) enables a simplified content booking process for companies taking sports and events content. Rights holders can easily monetise their programming by indicating availability and setting prices for components such as multiple feeds, different audios or metadata. Rights takers can make informed decisions about the content they would like to procure and broadcast.
“SES SCORE can support a variety of workflows, from established rights and agreements requiring regular content distribution to ad-hoc event opportunities and content demands,” observes Michele Gosetti, Head of Sales, Sports & Events at SES. “We are committed to empowering our customers with new ways to expand the audience reach and monetisation opportunities, and help rights holders and takers simplify their way of working.”
SES broadcasts over 700 hours of sports and live events every day, from niche sports championships to major broadcast events. SES SCORE is part of a continued focus on expanding the company’s sports and events capabilities. SCORE includes content protection with the latest encryption and conditional access protocols.
