Alston Elliot and Sixty today announced that they will combine their unique sports graphics expertise to provide Sixty’s interactive clickable on-air graphics solution Ease Live for cricket. The Ease Live cricket product will provide cricket fans with access to multiple layers of stats, replays, highlights and more, in multiple languages, and will make broadcast and OTT sports services even more engaging for the viewer at home.
“Sixty and Alston Elliot are initially investing in interactive graphics solutions that will take the broadcast and OTT cricket experience to the next level,” says Nick Baily, CEO, Alston Elliot.
“I’m really excited that we are working with Sixty to bring interactive graphics capabilities to cricket fans.
