Edgio announced its collaboration with the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) to provide an integrated platform for the delivery of live and on-demand hockey games broadcasts across Canada.
Edgio’s Uplynk solution for streaming video enables CHL to manage and organise live and on-demand events via a cloud-based solution, unifying control across multiple locations and scaling operations.
Eric Black, CTO and GM of Media at Edgio, said: “Thousands of fans from one side of Canada to the other tune in to the CHL’s events each season, so it’s vital that they have a platform that not only ensures high-quality video streams today, but also positions them for future technology advancements. We are thrilled to be partnered with the CHL and that they rely on Uplynk to scale their operations, reach more viewers, and deliver content seamlessly, in one platform.”
John McCauley, vice president of marketing and media at CHL, added: “The CHL is thrilled to be partnering with Edgio to enhance the delivery of live broadcasts of events and hockey games to viewers worldwide on CHL TV. Edgio’s platform streamlines our workflows, boosts performance, and enables us to spin up resources to help with live event production and scale our teams when we need it most.”
