At IBC today, we officially announced the availability of Elemental Delta, a new video delivery platform for repurposing and delivering both live and VOD content for any type of screen and over any type of network.
We always look forward to IBC with great anticipation – the myriad events, face to face interaction and cutting edge technology demonstrations all make our time in Amsterdam exciting and dynamic.
Elemental and co-founding sponsor Ericsson have teamed up to host the first annual 4K 4Charity Fun Run. Taking place on Saturday, September 13, 2014 in Amsterdam, the 4K 4Charity run is open to all IBC attendees.
The BBC head of broadcast and connected systems Phil Layton describes in his recent blog post how his R&D team successfully delivered a 4K UHD TV broadcast of the World Cup over an IP network using Elemental Live encoding.
Five years ago, Elemental hosted the very first Broadercasting event, gathering together professionals who play a role in the Oregon video technology industry.
As the World Cup kicks off, fans are seeking the best way to watch the most popular football tournament in the world. More than half of the projected audience for the World Cup is expected to tune in online. Over the next four weeks, Elemental will support the delivery of 64 games taking place across Brazil in a variety of broadcast workflows.
On Wednesday, May 7th at 7 p.m. CET, the Vienna State Opera will live stream the performance of Verdi’s Nabucco in 4K UHD HEVC delivered via MPEG-DASH over the Internet. This special occasion marks the first time fans around the world with UHD-ready smart or connected TVs can watch a live performance at this famous institution in 4K UHD.
Elemental green extends well beyond our brandmark. It also represents the healthy culture we strive to create on a daily basis. Recognized and respected as a “green” company within the community, Elemental employees are encouraged to contribute to a healthy environment and increased sustainability. On Earth Day, we not only see an opportunity to assess how well we’re supporting our community, but also reflect upon ways to improve our efforts.
At NAB 2014, Elemental introduces software-defined video (SDV) solutions that enable pay TV operators, content programmers, broadcasters and other video providers to keep pace with an evolving industry embracing display formats like 4K Ultra HD and implementing standards such as HEVC and MPEG-DASH.
Over the past several months, Elemental and Oregon Ballet Theatre (OBT) have worked closely together to capture the company’s performances in beautiful 4K Ultra HD video. This partnership culminated with Elemental shooting studio rehearsals and live performances of The Nutcracker last December and creating a highlight reel that debuted at the OBT season preview in February, attended by subscribers, patrons, board members and local media.
