The BT Sport Industry Awards 2017 shortlist has been announced today, revealing the players that in the past year pushed the boundaries of innovation in sport media and technology. Among these, Channel 4 and Deltatre’s work on the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games coverage has been recognised with a nomination in the Digital Platform of the Year category.
Building on the BAFTA Award-winning collaboration for the coverage of London’s Paralympics in 2012, the two companies joined forces to bring the Rio Games to British audiences in a totally new, digital way. Fans have been able to choose among 10 concurrent live streams and interact with data overlays while watching their favourite events, for a personalised, beyond-TV experience.
We are looking forward to the most exciting night on Thursday 27th April 2017 at Battersea Evolution. Fingers crossed.
