This powerful capability offers an attractive enhancement to broadcasters, worldwide.”
Recently launched Ease Live is an innovative product that meets the growing demand for end-user interactive graphical entertainment within the connected device television market. Ease Live enables broadcasters to quickly and seamlessly send interactive, clickable on-air graphics, highlights, statistics, and other compelling information to tablets directly from broadcasters’ graphics systems.
