The Ligue de Football Professionnel de France relies on Dalet Flex to create and broadcast post-match highlights
Dalet has recently announced that the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) from France is using Dalet Flex to prepare and deliver match highlights to fans via digital channels.
LFP is the French governing body responsible for overseeing, organizing, and managing the top two football leagues in France, Ligue 1 Uber Eats and Ligue 2 BKT; and the 44 professional football clubs that contest the titles.
Part of their work is to manage more than one hundred club match weekly highlight videos. The organizers selected Dalet Flex to accelerate the time-consuming process, automating ingest, preparation and publishing of the match highlight videos to YouTube and Dailymotion.
Matches take place from Friday night to Sunday night with live or near-live content aired by broadcast rights holders over the weekend. On Monday, the content rights revert back to the LFP who, in turn, use Dalet Flex to publish the match highlights.
Dalet also hosts and manages LFP’s cloud environment.
LFP’s Chief Information Officer, Olivier Imbert, elaborates on the value Dalet Flex brings, “Given the workload of our team and the large amount of video we’re dealing with, we needed a solution that would transform our content management approach. Dalet Flex automates the ingest and publishing process so our team can refocus their time on assessing fan consumption patterns and developing new content revenue opportunities. In just a few months, Dalet Flex has become a tool the entire team here at LFP has embraced.”
“Sports teams, leagues, and federations are taking control of their content and becoming sports media organizations, and the Ligue de Football Professionnel was ready to do just that,” states Massoud Razzani, Sales Account Manager, Dalet. “Dalet Flex provides the integration and automation capabilities LFP required to be successful at a competitive price point. The user-friendly environment enabled LFP personnel, many of whom do not have a technical background, to adapt to the new tools and workflow quickly.”
