AEK B.C. chooses Matrox Monarch HD and AmyDV

Since 1932 the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) has coordinated basketball leagues and competition all around the world.  It is a spectacular sport well known for innovation in the way it is presented across media to billions of people.  So, it is no surprise that it embraced streaming video and even made it compulsory for teams that are members of FIBA to transmit certain parts of international games over the internet for more to watch freely.

Antonis Prentzas oversees the technologies used by one of Greece’s biggest teams, ΑΕΚ BC.  He took to this task with zeal.  “Anything that helps us communicate with our fans is a good thing. We operate in a fast-changing media environment.  In sports, it gets even more complicated as we all consume and produce content about our favorite teams on multiple social media channels.  The more raw material you put out there, the more fans can use in their everyday networking, the better!”

The tool of choice for AEK was the Matrox Monarch.  “It is a deceptively simple machine” Mr. Prentzas explains “that give a very high-quality stream with very few steps”.  “Previously we used another solution which needed many more steps so it was necessary to have the supplier on-call each time. Now with the Monarch HD we just plug our live feed and it takes care of everything for us. AmyDV are a huge asset in helping to choose the right solution from the wide range and unmatched experience they operate with. Whenever I needed something they were right beside me – it is a real pleasure to work with them.”

“One thing is for sure.  We will need to produce more content.   Sports are a major part of people’s lives. There are many machines that claim to help but solutions such as Monarch HD get the job done perfectly” Mr. Prentzas added.
