In order to show eSkootr Championship (eSC) in the most attractive way possible, the series works together with NEP to offer all the action of the races in a fully vertical 9:16 transmission format, being ideal to appreciate details in a better way compared to traditional horizontal 16:9 viewing.
This technology was successfully experimented in London during the eSC official debut, where from its remote broadcast facilities, NEP receives the original video format (16:9) to transform it and later send it to digital and streaming partners transmission via IP SRT (open source transmission protocol).
“A high proportion of our viewing on was mobile-first with the9:16 format adding to the immersive nature of the racing for those fans watching on mobile or tablet devices,” said Sharon Fuller, eSkootr Championship. Chief Content Officer.
New entertainment format tested in London, ratified in Sion, Switzerland, and surely confirmed for the rest of the season by eSC, using technology to improve, optimizing and enlivening television broadcasts, making the enjoyment of the races exciting through digital platforms.
“9:16 viewing was central to the content creation vision for eSC from the outset and it will only get better as we progress through the six rounds of our debut season” Fuller continued.
