Sports broadcaster Dyn relies on Qvest tech project management
- 06 July, 2023
GER: The new streaming platform Dyn is being supported by Qvest with project management and technical consulting prior to go-live. In close exchange, Dyn, Qvest and the other technical service providers ensure a flawless setup of the content processes from live recording at the sports venues to distribution. Starting at the end of August 2023, the sports channel Dyn will be offering among other highlights exclusive live broadcasts of top German and European competitions in handball, basketball, volleyball, table tennis and field hockey.
As part of the collaboration, Qvest is responsible for the technical project management of the content workflows of the new sports broadcaster Dyn. To this end, the technology experts are in close exchange with the Dyn team and the individual technical service providers responsible for the different workflows in content production and distribution. Qvest supported the Dyn team in particular during the planning phase of the streaming platform with controlling and technical consulting as well as with partner management. Qvest contributes its expertise to the new sports broadcaster in numerous Dyn media production workflows, such as live recording at the sports venues, further processing of the signals and distribution on various IP-based channels.
Andreas Heyden, CEO of Dyn Media: “Producing and broadcasting live sporting events in a new way requires both innovation and expertise. We are very grateful and satisfied that Qvest has supported us in this process.”
Norman Tettenborn, Principal at Qvest and project partner for Dyn Media: “Live and sports broadcasting has been both learned and lived at Qvest for decades. Here in particular, efficient processes and scalable technologies are crucial for success. With our experience from complex infrastructure projects, we can support the Dyn Media team to produce high-quality content for various distribution channels.”
In the common definition for the relevant signal formats of the Dyn content distribution, the Qvest project team could benefit from its experience with multimedia infrastructures in international broadcasting projects. Technical workflows of remote productions are bundled at the Dyn locations in Cologne and Munich, and artificial intelligence is used for processing and target-group-specific preparation of the produced media content. Alongside OTT streaming and TV, Dyn focuses on social media as the most important playout channels for the produced content. The Dyn program will be available on Internet-enabled devices. A special handball match in Düsseldorf will mark the live premiere of the new streaming platform on August 23, 2023, when German champion THW Kiel meets DHB Cup winner Rhein-Neckar Löwen in the Pixum Super Cup.
