Satellite TV provider SKY Mexico has deployed Elemental Technologies' software-based video solutions as the processing engine for Blue To Go Video Everywhere, its premium over-the-top (OTT) video service.

SKY Mexico launched Blue To Go in 2014 with Elemental at the core of its live streaming workflow and has scaled up with Elemental solutions as its viewership and content portfolio have grown. Available to subscribers of SKY Mexico's satellite pay TV services, the multiscreen live streaming service now has the capacity to stream as many as 30 live events simultaneously to connected devices across the country.

The Blue To Go live streaming workflow is orchestrated by Elemental Conductor video management software. Elemental Live encoders ingest content from SKY Mexico's satellite links and process and deliver it in multiple bitrates to content delivery networks (CDNs) for live streaming to the web, Android and iOS devices. Subscribers can access hundreds of live events per month from around the world, including exclusive performances and sports programming.
