Ahead of the 2017 launch of DAZN’s J.League soccer programming, RCS delivered a complete redesign for the popular OTT sports platform, available in Japan, Germany Austria and Switzerland. In addition to envisioning an eclectic mix of vibrant and engaging new looks, the RCS crew implemented a number of data integration improvements to advance production efficiency and audience engagement.
DAZN also commissioned RCS to enliven its Japanese soccer coverage with the J.League Zone, which simultaneously displays two live J.League matches, alongside a main window showing action from all of the day’s live matches; new graphics for three magazine shows and a data integration solution powered by RCS’ cloud-based Foundation data service, to help DAZN bring fans real-time social media posts and stats across its coverage. The solution sorts and organizes real-time data from J.League data provider Data Stadium and combines it with graphics templates. To further streamline the integration of data-driven graphics into DAZN’s highlight packages, RCS also devised an enhanced post production graphics workflow.
