Today I am pleased to announce that Ooyala and The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) are delivering mobile, multiscreen video from The Championships at Wimbledon.
Now viewers from around the world can watch Wimbledon videos online
, and stream on-demand highlights, interviews, and other exclusive video content from the tennis tournament to their PC. Ooyala is also powering mobile video for Wimbledon through the official Wimbledon App
, available for both iOS and Android devices.
Wimbledon and AELTC are leveraging Ooyala’s advanced video monetization tools
to highlight premium tournament sponsors such as Rolex and Evian within their on-demand videos. Ooyala’s innovative video technology platform also powers social sharing on Twitter and Facebook for increased video visibility.
The lines between broadcast and broadband video are blurring, and more traditional broadcasters are now streaming TV shows, movies and sporting events online to connect with viewers on multiple screens. Ooyala is proud to lead this transition. We’re committed to delivering the most powerful, personalized viewing experiences possible, no matter what screen people use to keep up with The Championship.
This isn’t the first time Ooyala has served up tennis on the Internet (pardon the pun). We powered online video for Tennis Australia and served live video around the world for the Australian Open
earlier this year.
We look forward to a great tournament at Wimbledon this year. As always, thanks for watching!
