Ericsson said tennis fans around the world can watch the TV broadcast of Collector Swedish Open in Bastad, Sweden, from July 13 to 19 – on their iOS and Android devices.
The Ericsson Networked Event platform, which supports the TV broadcast, gathers data linked to the tournament, stats, records, photos, films, live reporting, and match results to facilitate the creation of apps with an immersive digital experience.
The 2015 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Falun, Sweden, was also supported by the Ericsson Networked Event platform. App developers can then use this content to create digital experiences to complement the live event.
“Ericsson Networked Event creates a great second-screen experience for viewers, leveraging our Multiservice Delivery Platform, M2M Data Management and Mediaroom Reach TV solutions,” said Orvar Hurtig, head of Industry and Society at Ericsson.
