It is in this spirit that PT SportSuite, sister brand to UK tech firm Publisher’s Toolbox, announces the launch of our latest platform offering – a modular video OTT solution for sports organisations.
The PT SportSuite Video OTT platform
is our response to the challenges facing sports organisations of all kinds – a modular solution that will allow affected clubs to bring the games to their fans via OTT technology.
The ongoing impact and risk associated with Covid-19 means sports fans around the world are gearing up for the ‘new normal’ - matches played out in empty stadiums.

It’s an unappetising yet necessary solution that allows professional sportspeople to get back on the field and play again, but with only a small percentage of professional matches available on broadcast television, leaves many fans cast adrift.
PT SportSuite CEO Rich Cheary says: “We really wanted to put together a one-of-a-kind video OTT package that would prove to be a really differentiator in the market by democratising OTT services for sports organisations of all sizes and budgets.
“It’s not just about configuring a video player, putting our branding on it and expecting people to bite. We felt that with our suite of products we could really push out video OTT that would allow for remote broadcasting, management of those video assets and then, most importantly, the ability for clubs to monetise this content via web or app properties – so we really looked at this holistically in a way that would provide solutions to the challenges sports clubs are facing in the current climate.

“As sports fans ourselves, we understand the role that sport brings to people’s lives and this motivated us to provide a solution that would allow clubs playing matches in front of empty stands to broadcast matches directly to the fans.”Does your organisation have a need to broadcast live or on-demand video content direct to your digital community.
