Canadian company revolutionizing video broadcasting for sports

Calgary's Worldplay, a fast emerging self managed enterprise video platform provider

CALGARY, Oct. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Calgary, AB based Worldplay, a leader in online video solutions, is making huge waves in the online video broadcasting market for amateur and professional sports. With the unprecedented growth in online video streaming, Wordplay is leading the way in helping organizations and content producers turn this global phenomenon into a lucrative business opportunity.

"We have created a platform for content producers to take their videos way beyond YouTube, and create their own online video broadcast network they own, manage, and monetize." said Mark Lehman, VP Business Development.

Of the company's most recent successes, Worldplay signed a multi-year contract with the Alberta College Athletic Conference (ACAC) to become the first post-secondary athletics conference in Canada, to create and operate their own Internet broadcast network – ACACTV

This new online video network is about more than just live streaming games, it's about re-defining how the ACAC uses video content to create new business opportunities such as pay-per-view programming and fully owned monetization programs. In addition, ACAC member institutions will have the capability to introduce a global audience to their schools and athletic programs. New opportunities will be created in coaching, skill development and player communications. ACAC will have a completely unique capability to build a new level of community support and engagement to their athletic programs.

As said by Mark Kosak, CEO of ACAC, "We have chosen to work with Worldplay over a number of other very attractive bidders across North America, to provide webcasting and game tape exchange services to the ACAC. We are extremely excited about the limitless possibilities that this opportunity can achieve for both the ACAC and Worldplay."

Worldplay is currently in discussions with a number of universities and colleges, as well as clients in the corporate and entertainment sector, to create independent online video networks.
