MainStreaming is continuing the expansion of the DAZN Edge platform in DAZN’s core European markets.
DAZN Edge, introduced in 2021, is responsible for the delivery of the majority of DAZN content across its core European markets.
DAZN is not afraid to innovate to deliver the best experience for its viewers. A mission that led to the selection of MainStreaming as a technology and service provider.
DAZN Edge is built with MainStreaming’s proprietary Video Edge technology that has been optimized for broadcast-grade live and VOD streaming at scale. Additionally, the platform incorporates edge computing applications like watermarking and includes machine learning to improve the personalization of the viewer experience.
“They were absolutely focused on serving the customers with high, high quality. I mean, people are expecting to watch sports in the same way that you and I did 20 years ago, sitting at the couch, you turn on the TV and everything works. They are expecting the same thing,” Antonio Corrado, CEO at MainStreaming told Broadband TV News.
MainStreaming designs, deploys, operates, and supports the DAZN Edge platform, and works with multiple ISPs throughout Europe to assure optimal Quality of Experience (QoE) for DAZN’s viewers. In 2023 DAZN expanded its DAZN Edge capacity to assure QoE to all its viewers, by deploying ever deeper inside ISP networks to deliver the best possible service to growing regional audiences. This is coupled with MainStreaming’s latest Analytics release that provides even more granular data, giving DAZN full and real-time visibility of service performance.
“Wherever DAZN Edge is deployed, we achieve best possible QoE for our viewers, resulting in longer viewing times and better customer experience,” states Robin Oakley, VP Distribution Engineering at DAZN. “Our important ISP partners, who help us deliver great sports viewing experiences to our shared customers, also benefit from the significant investment we have made in DAZN Edge that ensures highly efficient delivery of streaming video over broadband networks.”
MainStreaming has been recognised as a Cool Vendor in the 2023 Gartner Cool Vendors in Edge Computing report.
