Clearleap In A Sporting Mood

Clearleap is jumping deeper into the live streaming pond with the launch its Live TV and Events Solution, a multiscreen platform tailored for sports and other live events.

The system supports live-streamed games, as well as “near real-time” access to highlights and clips and personalized playlists and other content produced by Clearleap’s partners. Clearleap claims that the offering, supported by its Network Operations Center and a Web-based dashboard for monitoring and data analytics, provides up to 99.999% uptime.

The company said the live streaming system will also support a range of business models, including subscription services and authenticated offerings.

Clearleap said it’s introducing the platform on the heels of a set of big live sporting events that supported streaming, including the FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the Winter Olympics from Sochi.

Clearleap didn’t announce any early takers for the new system, but its announced customers include Scripps Networks Interactive, the BBC, HBO, Verizon Communications, Time Warner Cable, and In Demand, the MSO-owned distributor of video-on-demand and pay-per-view services. Clearleap landed a $20 million “C” round late last year that it’s tapping into to expand internationally and to more than double the size of the company.
