Partnership will serve sports and entertainment operators around the world.

Deltatre and LiveLike have announced a collaboration that will produce a joint solution to sports and entertainment clients around the globe focused on social engagement and gamification around live content. The solution brings together Deltatre’s award-winning DIVA player and LiveLike’s community-focussed feature-set.

Deltatre and LiveLike are, where appropriate, bringing together the above products to offer a comprehensive solution for leading operators running multi-platform video streaming services. Specifically, both companies will work closely on augmenting DIVA’s powerful, user-first interactivity and data visualisation with the chat, badges, leaderboard and other social functionality from LiveLike, all with the aim of keeping fans engaged around live content.

Andrea Marini, Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer at Deltatre, said:

“A joint proposition or solution from Deltatre and LiveLike provides clients even greater functionality, immersion, and fan engagement. Our integration with LiveLike provides operators added ways in which viewers can connect with the sports they love to watch. It’s great to work alongside a company that is as committed to fan engagement as Deltatre.”

Gilles Mas, President, Live Division at Deltatre, said:

“We have established a wonderful relationship with LiveLike over the last three years, particularly with regards to VR technology, and we’re looking forward to collaborating in this area ahead of a busy twelve months that will feature some of the most viewed sporting events in the world. It’s incredibly exciting to work on technologies that help fans experience tournaments in truly revolutionary ways with partners such as LiveLike.”

Miheer Walavalkar, CEO and Co-Founder at LiveLike, said:

“The advantages for clients are clear; Deltatre and LiveLike’s integrated solution will transform client streaming offerings into a modern, "lean-forward" experience that will power fan engagement, without requiring clients to commit significant development resources. I am proud of the partnership we have established with Deltatre over the years and I am excited to further our collaboration as the OTT industry experiences rapid growth”
