Sportall unleashes remote commentary creation with BCE’s Holovox solution

The Sportall platform that aims to offer fans and sports rights holders the place to enjoy and share their content has recently confirmed that it has chosen BCE’s Holovox to enrich its programs with live commentary.

Holovox is BCE’s remote voice-over solution. It is cloud-based and its objective is to empower live events with multiple voice-over layers, live translation, graphic layers management and team coordination.

With a computer, sound gears and an internet connection, the commentators have a direct access to the live streaming of the event in a dedicated web interface. Thanks to the included cloud-based remote, which can be opened on their smartphones, the commentators can control their interactions and start commenting immediately. With one administrator and three commentator’s accounts, which is the package that Sportall has contracted, the platform can act worldwide.

The administrator monitors the activities of the commentators, activates the titles, the channel, the event logos and controls the pre-live graphics. The live streaming is then sent to the online video platform and distributed though a CDN (Content Delivery Network) to their website and App.

“The Holovox system is very intuitive! The configuration or use of the system is done via a simple email, users have access to all the tools necessary to watch the event live and add their comments, the few graphic character,” explains Brice Navarro, Production Manager at Sportall.

“Creating emotion for live sports events is paramount. With Holovox, Sportall is now able to enrich its programs with crystal clear voice-over. We are looking forward to continue to improve their customers experience with our state-of-the-art solutions,” concludes Victorien Loiseau, Sales Associate at BCE.
