Enhancing Sporting Solutions’ Trading Office Operations with iGameMedia’s ONEOTT Platform

Client Profile:

Client Name: Sporting Solutions

Industry: Sports Trading

Location: United Kingdom

Project Overview:

Sporting Solutions, a prominent sports trading company in the UK, sought to optimise its internal investment by implementing a comprehensive IP video delivery and hosting solution.

To achieve their goals, they partnered with iGameMedia, a leading provider of the revolutionary ONEOTT Platform designed to cater to the evolving needs of global trading floors. By leveraging iGameMedia’s innovative solution, Sporting Solutions aimed to streamline its operations and enhance its trading office efficiency.


Sporting Solutions recognised that relying on a traditional linear and cumbersome AV infrastructure would impede progress. They approached iGameMedia to explore the possibilities of remotely hosting and managing their existing AV infrastructure, digitising it, and transitioning to a highly scalable IP solution.

The primary challenges included:

  • Overcoming the limitations of a linear AV infrastructure
  • Digitising and remotely managing AV infrastructure
  • Ensuring high-quality real-time streaming with minimal delay
  • Enabling remote control of set-top boxes
  • Displaying content on TVs and Gantry screens within Sporting Solutions’ offices
  • Enabling secure access via VPN for remote employees
iGameMedia’s Solution:

iGameMedia proposed a tailored solution that granted Sporting Solutions licensed access to their advanced ONEOTT platform while incorporating specific enhancements aligned with the client’s requirements.

The key elements of the proposed solution included:

  • Hosted and Managed Set-Top Boxes: iGameMedia would host and manage ten set-top boxes. Each box’s output would be transcoded into a high-resolution 8Mbps H.264 real-time stream. The solution ensured a maximum delay of 700ms.

  • Integration with Office Displays: Technical integration allowed the distribution of content across TVs and Gantry screens within Sporting Solutions’ offices. Employees could stay up to date with relevant information and live events.
  • Secure Access for Home Working: Authorised Sporting Solutions users could securely access the service via VPN. This enabled remote employees to work from home while maintaining connectivity.

The solution delivered streamlined AV infrastructure, high-quality real-time streaming, remote control and management, seamless integration with office displays, and secure remote access. Sporting Solutions experienced enhanced operational efficiency, optimal video quality, efficient monitoring, easy access to information, and secure remote working.

The key outcomes and benefits of the solution included:
