SKY México Delivers Premium Live OTT Service with Elemental

  • Satellite TV provider deploys Elemental software-based video processing for multiscreen live streaming

PORTLAND, Ore. — Elemental Technologies, an Amazon Web Services company, today announced that SKY Mexico has deployed Elemental’s software-based video solutions as the processing engine for Blue To Go Video Everywhere, its premium over-the-top (OTT) video service.

SKY Mexico launched Blue To Go in 2014 with Elemental at the core of its live streaming workflow and has scaled up with Elemental solutions as its viewership and content portfolio have grown. Available to subscribers of SKY Mexico’s satellite pay TV services, the OTT service now boasts the capacity to stream as many as 30 live events simultaneously to connected devices across the country.

The Blue To Go live streaming workflow is orchestrated by Elemental Conductor video management software. Elemental Live encoders ingest content from SKY Mexico’s satellite links, process and deliver it in multiple bitrates to content delivery networks for live streaming to the web, Android and iOS devices. Subscribers to a range of SKY Mexico satellite pay TV packages can gain access to hundreds of live events per month from around the world, including exclusive performances and sports programming such as the English Premier League, La Liga Espaňola, the NFL, concerts, series and more.
