Published

on

 

Appear, the global leader in media processing and delivery technology, has been chosen by a premier online gambling platform in North America to deliver premium live sports content to millions of subscribers across the continent. The celebrated gambling platform, which reaches millions of fans across 50 states, turned to Appear’s X20 platform for high efficiency content processing, low latency transport and multi codec support to ensure seamless feeds reach multiple destinations, simultaneously for fans in real-time.

The leading gambling platform offers a unique, engaging sports viewing experience to fans that enables linear playout of its network and allows fans to bet on games in real-time, play with other users through fantasy leagues, and stream premium live content via one innovative online platform. When it needed to rapidly launch live channels through its new cloud-based playout platform, it turned to Appear as one of its key technology partners.

The gambling platform needed a technology partner that could deliver the linear feeds quickly, reliably and efficiently. In partner testing, Appear’s X20 platform was the highest performing and most dense solution, meaning it could trust it to bring all the action into its linear and streaming channels in real-time. Being a betting and gaming platform as well as a sports’ streaming site, ensuring live content is delivered in as close to real-time as possible and with no errors is fundamental.

The deal marks the continued acceleration of Appear’s award-winning SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) gateway product, bringing one of the highest densities and most reliable solutions on the market, with scalable capabilities. The versatile deployment supports both ground-to-cloud and cloud-to-ground workflows, empowering the prominent gambling platform to efficiently manage its content delivery processes. The deployment encompasses:

  • 18 channels of HEVC encoding, supporting SD/HD/UHD resolutions with low delay mode for ground-to-cloud contribution.
  • 35 channels of HEVC decoding, designed for cloud-to-ground contribution. These decoders include seven UHD decoders to meet the demands of high-quality content delivery.
  • 4 JPEG XS encoders and decoders in readiness for future use cases and applications.
  • SRT capable platform: The platform’s infrastructure is now equipped with SRT capabilities, ready for utilization in contribution and distribution use cases as needed.

Ed McGivern, President & General Manager, Appear US, noted: “We’re committed to furthering the investment in our SRT gateway product, driven by our belief in offering the markets’ the most space and resource efficient solutions. We’re delighted that the renowned gambling platform recognizes Appear as the premier option to deliver its content, underscoring the power of technology to transform content delivery and set the stage for a new era of live streaming experiences. We look forward to being part of their journey and helping them continue their impressive growth trajectory.”

Appear’s X Platform is used globally for live contribution, remote production, and distribution. It offers the ability to effortlessly blend encapsulation formats such as MPEG TS, ST2022-6, ST2110, Zixi, and high capacity SRT with an equally impressive array of codecs and video processing functions. It is part of the company’s ground-to-cloud vision that allows you to use Appear’s X Platform to send signals from cameras at an event’s location to a cloud production platform, without the need to send a mobile unit and accompanying production team. In primary distribution, and video transport to and from the cloud, the platform enables cost-efficiency through transport over the internet. The X Platform achieves this through providing video transport with industry-leading flexibility, density, and energy efficiency.

MGM Resorts Named a Proud Partner of the New York Yankees

Published

MGM Resorts International announced a new partnership designating MGM Resorts as a “Proud Partner of the New York Yankees”.

The two organizations will collaborate to deliver exclusive VIP experiences to MGM Rewards members and baseball fans, including the opportunity to watch batting practice from the warning track and throw out a ceremonial first pitch at Yankee Stadium. MGM Resorts will also have brand placement at Yankee Stadium on LED signage, first and third base rotational signage, and its logo appearing on the back of the pitcher’s mound during live local television broadcasts of select games.

“We remain committed to investing in the community, while collaborating with the New York Yankees to provide unparalleled experiences for baseball fans. Our company has owned and operated Empire City Casino and Yonkers Raceway for the past five years. As we continue working to secure a full commercial casino license at Empire City, this partnership allows us to further develop these properties to their potential, while providing the world-class hospitality guests have come to expect from the MGM Resorts brand,” Bill Hornbuckle, CEO & President of MGM Resorts, said.

“We are excited to partner with MGM Resorts this season. Through branding displayed on signage inside Yankee Stadium and integrated into our television broadcasts, the MGM Resorts brand will only see increased exposure and recognition for its resort and casino properties— especially for the nearby Empire City Casino,” Michael Tusiani, SVP of Partnerships at New York Yankees, said.

As this partnership moves forward, MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino plans to host New York Yankees-themed fan activities and experiences involving active Major League Baseball players, as well as alumni.

Ed Domingo, President and COO of MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino, said: “This alliance with the Yankees allows us to create unique and engaging opportunities for guests and baseball fans alike. Empire City sits less than two miles from the Bronx border and is not only the gaming entertainment destination of choice for Bronxites, but also the longtime employer of hundreds of team members who call the Bronx home. We are well positioned to significantly increase that number when a full-scale commercial casino license is secured.”

In November 2018, MGM Resorts and Major League Baseball formed a wide-ranging and groundbreaking partnership in the US and Japan, designating MGM Resorts as the first “Official Gaming Partner of MLB” and “Official Entertainment Partner of MLB”. Additionally, MGM Resorts has been an “Official Partner of MLB Players Inc” since 2022.

Super Group, the parent company of Betway, a leading online sports betting and gaming business, and Spin, the multi-brand online casino, announced that, following the completion of an extensive internal review, the company intends to undertake an exit plan for its sportsbook product in the US.

The company, along with relevant regulators and partners, will shortly begin the process to fully close its U.S. sportsbook operations in the nine states in which it is currently live. Super Group will, however, maintain its iGaming presence in the US and plans to operate two iGaming brands from its Spin portfolio (including Jackpot City) in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Chief Executive Officer Neal Menashe said: “As a global business, we constantly evaluate the optimal use of our resources across all markets in which we operate. We have recently concluded an extensive review of our U.S. operations and, at present, we do not see a long-term path to profitability for the sportsbook product.

“The vast majority of Super Group’s revenue is generated in iGaming and, in line with that strategy, we will continue to offer our leading casino product in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We are open to expanding our U.S. footprint if the right investment or strategic opportunities arise.”
