Why Sport1 partnered with Coconut to outsource video encoding for its sport news video platform?

June 08, 2020 Customers

We are so excited to announce that Coconut teams up with Sport1. Sport1 is usually known only as a Sport Broadcaster, but they are also pushing their software and use many cutting-edge technologies.

During their custom setup of their new Media Asset Management (MAM), they decided to move everything to the Cloud. And Coconut was an obvious choice to deliver their videos in a faster way to their users.


We had the chance to interview Paolo Garri, Director Of Technology at Sport1.

Paolo, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud for Sport1?

We decided to move our video encoding to the Cloud to remove the hassle we had with hardware encoders. Besides, we noticed from the start an increase in performance and the possibility to deliver to our users new and exciting formats.

Why did you choose Coconut?

We tested a few different cloud encoders on the market and the easy integration of Coconut was the main reason to choose it. After the initial test we were surprised by the QoS and the performance as well.

How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?

The integration was really easy and took no time at all.

"Coconut has enabled us, with a dead simple setup, to move our workflow to the Cloud."
