Major League Baseball Advanced Media (BAM), the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, has chosen several Astria video encoding systems from Tut Systems to help process and deliver broadcast-quality MPEG-2 4:2:2 and MPEG-2 (4:2:0) video across its network, which connects every major league ballpark with its central studio in New York City.
BAM leverages the content processed with the Tut systems for multiple applications, such as real-time editing and re-distribution of content; production of team and player highlight footage; Internet-based broadcasts of MLB games as well as pre- and post-game coverage; and video archiving of MLB footage.
In choosing Tut Systems, MLB.com was looking for a solution that supported a variety of live and stored video applications. The Tut Systems Astria video encoding systems bring flexibility to support video distribution over an IP network, while still delivering pristine video to the company's studio in New York. Moving to an all-IP video platform allows MLB to efficiently manage the variety of video applications they deliver to fans around the world.
