Another squash first - international web broadcast of Players Cup

Courtesy of www.squash360.com:

It has just been announced the Players Cup Series matches in Boston between March 4th & 7th, 2008 will be broadcast via web streaming ...

Production and delivery of the programming will be the product of Jean DeLierre and his team at Telimage - well known in squash circles for their high quality TV productions of squash events over the years and for his squash DVD business at www.squashlive.com.

In yet another first for squash, DeLierre will be employing cutting edge peer-to-peer web delivery technology to enable 1 million + viewers to tune in to the programming at www.squashlive.com simultaneously without affecting the quality of the images whatsoever.

The matches will be streamed FREE of charge and as can be expected with a DeLierre production, "trust that during the broadcast you will see the ball clearly and will be treated to the close ups and edits you are accustomed to through our dvds and clips."

To view the broadcasts a small software program must be downloaded first and currently the software streaming technology is only compatible with PC systems.

"Boston is becoming the hub for great things in squash. David's addition to the Boston squash scene, coupled with our television-come-web-cast deal with Telimage Productions, the leading producer of video squash programming, affords us the opportunity to make squash accessible to larger and larger audiences" explains John Nimick, whose Event Engine sport and entertainment company is promoting the Players Cup Circuit and three of its associated tournaments.
