Google is looking to broadcast live sports events via YouTube, and has already signed up seven advertisers, including Coca-Cola and Hewlett-Packard. The company also has two advertisers in Britain and one in the United States. However, live sports on the internet have been plagued by slow broadband speeds and the reluctance of sports leagues to cannibalize their own profits. Currently, ESPN shows most of its events online.
If you are considering live streaming a sporting event, you need a provider that can meet your specific needs. Quality of the stream and the time it takes to load will both affect the profitability of the broadcast and the overall user experience. Amagi’s live orchestration platform can handle everything from stream encoding and delivery to caption, subtitle, and graphics insertion, as well as ad monetization. Its live streaming solution is ideal for sports, news, and other high-quality live content.
Besides the quality of the live stream, it is also important to ensure a stable connection. If the network goes down, it will impact the viewer experience, and that will negatively impact your monetization potential. Amagi LIVE’s live streaming solution uses redundancy to minimize downtime, with two parallel streams for input and output. When one network fails, the other one will take over. The solution also employs managed services to manage downtime and to ensure that the stream is always available.
Ads can be inserted into live streams on fixed or flexible ad breaks. With fixed ad breaks, advertisers can place ad triggers at a predictable time. Flexible ad breaks, on the other hand, are inserted when needed. The flexible ad triggers also provide flexibility in monetization because production teams can send the ad triggers in the middle of the broadcast without interrupting the audience. Moreover, flexible ad triggers help broadcasters avoid having to hire extra staff.

The company started broadcasting matches in Germany in 2017, and has since grown to cover more than 2,000 sports clubs. Its platform collects data on the playing field and allows users to share video clips on social media. The service offers live streams of football, ice hockey, and basketball matches in high-definition (1080p).
Real-time sports broadcasting has many challenges. The internet is not designed to handle this type of traffic, so the delivery of information must be incredibly reliable. For this reason, sports teams often set up one camera to cover an entire field. This camera must be located close to the action and in an ideal position on the field.
