Remote cloud editing enables efficient production of high quality custom content.
Deltatre, a global sports media services company, announced that it will continue its successful working relationship with the European Tour with a new agreement that will see the two companies work together through 2019.
Under the terms of the agreement, Deltatre will provide a cloud based editing service which will facilitate the European Tour’s News Service by providing a cost effective way to quickly produce high quality custom content.
Since 2009, Deltatre and the European Tour have enjoyed a successful and productive relationship spanning a variety of projects, including website design, hosting, and maintenance, interactive storytelling and live blogging. Over the next three years, Deltatre’s cloud editing service will provide the European Tour with a team of remotely-based, highly skilled production staff to create custom content for its web and broadcast properties.
The ability to edit content in the cloud translates to a significant cost reduction for rights holders as production staff can work from anywhere, rather than going on-venue. Deltatre has seen an increase in demand for their cloud production services as more and more clients recognize the benefits of cloud technology.
Roddy Williams, The European Tour’s Head of Content, said: “Deltatre has been an important partner for a number of years and we look forward to continuing to collaborate to deliver engaging and entertaining content to our global fan base.”
Giampiero Rinaudo, CEO and CO-Founder of Deltatre, said: “We’re proud to continue our excellent working relationship with the European Tour. The ability to quickly produce and deliver original content has become an increasingly important part of maintaining a strong fan base. Deltatre’s cloud editing service simplifies the process of accessing stored content for production teams, allowing them to create more and better content for fans and stakeholders alike.”
