Tata Communications Delivers Live Formula 1® Video Feeds To Chello DMC For Sport1 Broadcast

Tata Communications, a leading provider of A New World of Communications™, has announced it is providing Official F1® licensee/broadcaster Chello DMC live Formula 1® video feeds via its wholly-owned fibre network for the first time this season.
The high quality video feeds, broadcast on Dutch sports channel, Sport1 will be used for the channel's full 2014 race season coverage.

The partnership builds on Tata Communications' proven capability as the Official Connectivity Provider of Formula 1® by giving Chello DMC access to the highest quality video content thanks to Tata Communications' global fibre network.
Six live feeds and an additional unilateral feed from all 19 races this season will be distributed via the fibre network for broadcast on the Sport1 channels and via the Sport1 app.

The investment in fibre by Chello DMC is in line with its wider strategy to provide clients, such as Sport1, with the expertise and technology to increase the value of its broadcast content through improved quality, choice and cost efficiencies.
By using Tata Communications' fibre network for delivery, Sport1 now has the opportunity to provide its subscribers with not only a complete race overview, but also additional services, such as onsite commentary, across all devices.

Jelmer Kleingeld, VP and General Manager at Chello DMC said: "Formula 1® is one of the most popular spectator sports in the world. As the Official Connectivity Provider of Formula 1®, Tata Communications already has the major fibre operations in place making it possible for us to pick up high quality content at an improved latency rate.
"We are committed to providing a highly innovative service to our client Sport1 and this new distribution capability opens up greater possibilities for the services we can provide to our clients in the future."

Consumer demand for high quality, live content across different platforms is growing, and at the heart of this change is the transition towards fibre networks to deliver the highest quality live and file-based video, securely and to numerous devices (televisions, tablets, smartphones and laptops).
The secure and massive bandwidth provided by our fibre helps broadcasters to effectively monetise their rights, especially for live events.

Rangu Salgame, CEO, Growth Ventures, Tata Communications commented: "For Tata Communications this is another important development in our role as Official Connectivity Provider of Formula 1® and proven track record in providing global media solutions to our clients.
"By delivering the highest quality video feeds over our wholly-owned fibre network we are able to offer clients of Formula One Management, such as Chello DMC, enhanced experiences."
