Latest LiberoVision signings over summer
After an intense summer with EURO, Olympic games and IBC, LiberoVision proudly looks back on achievements both on technical and commercial side. While Libero Highlight 5 with the Virtual Run and Panorama Stitch among others was released for EURO and Olympics, the next eye-catchers for Libero Highlight 5.5 could be presented at IBC show in Amsterdam. But also on commercial side, LiberoVision had a good summer with various new customers joining the LiberoVision family.
Polish Broadcaster TVP had his premiere with LiberoVision’s 3D analysis at the local EURO tournament (see EURO report). Shortly after, Brazilian TV Record, the exclusive free TV right holder for the Olympic Games in Brazil went on air with Libero Highlights, same as Mexico’s Televisa, who after a pause brought back the 3D flights to the Mexican Television, enhanced by new elements like the Virtual Run (see Olympics report).
For the new football season, two more football customers from prestigious leagues decided for LiberoVision. The Argentinian La Corte, the exclusive producer of Argentinian’s top two divisions and the country’s public program “Futbol para todos” went on air with LiberoVision on the start of 2012/2013 season with the opening game between title holder Arsenal and Unión Santa Fe on August 3. LiberoVision is very happy to be the official analysis program of the Argentina’s Primera Division and Primera B Nacional with its long tradition and well known clubs like Boca Juniors or River Plate from Buenos Aires. La Corte, who covers the production of all “Futbol para todos” games, uses the Libero Highlight from its studio where it breaks down in-game highlights of all matches. The in-game application of the 3D analysis from the studio proves one more time LiberoVision’s superiority for 3D analysis products, especially in operating speed for high quality content.
Three weeks later, German Broadcaster Südwestrundfunk (SWR) started using LiberoVision for their weekly highlight show “Sport im Dritten”. The program focuses on the weekend games of the German Bundesliga.
In addition, more and more broadcasters in the United States embrace LiberoVision products for American Football, football, basketball, Baseball, and Hockey. Libero Highlight is on the verge of becoming the de-facto standard for US sports television analysis. More details on new partnerships will be published soon in a separate release.
