Corporate News Experience amateur sports live with SPORTTOTAL and TELEKOM
* Live streaming to sporttotal.tv via the Telekom 5G network * Available free for fans with immediate effect: on the web, on Smart TV and mobile devices * Fully automated SPORTTOTAL camera captures games in full HD quality thanks to artificial intelligence
Cologne, 7 September 2021. sporttotal.tv gmbh, one of Germany's largest multi-sport streaming platforms and a wholly owned subsidiary of SPORTTOTAL AG, and Telekom Deutschland GmbH have established a long-term strategic partnership under which they will forge ahead with medialising sports. Against this backdrop, the two companies are setting up a sales cooperation with the aim of combining their respective core competences to the benefit of German sports. The cooperation will run for a minimum period of five years until 2026.
"The age of 5G has arrived in amateur sports. Fans and clubs can look forward to professional live video streaming," says Hagen Rickmann, Managing Director Business Customers Deutsche Telekom. "Sports broadcasting specialist SPORTTOTAL joining forces with our 5G network: that's quite simply an unbeatable combination. This cooperation will bring sports and its fans even closer together."
Starting whistle for exciting home games Video streaming is ideally suited to 5G technology. Clubs and leagues can use it to turn their sports events into a digital experience for their fans. Fully automated cameras deliver a thrilling game experience. Telecom's 4G/5G network enables high speed broadcasting of home games from the camera to the sporttotal.tv platform.
The mini camera, only 16 cm high, broadcasts in full HD and, as opposed to the roof of the stadium or sports hall, is positioned at the height of the centre line. SPORTTOTAL cameras' algorithm then takes over: It can recognise game situations itself and follow the ball live during the game. The so-called Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) makes all this possible. This term stands for an artificial neural network from the domain of machine learning and inspired by biological processes. CNN supports the machine processing of images and audio files. All this runs independently of the cloud live on the device. Professional support of the camera is also included in the package. Moreover, fans and trainers can access the games of their home club at any time in the form of video on demand - ideal for analysing the game or individual players.
"Telecom committing in the role of a central player in sports streaming for all clubs in Germany is great news for all sports people! Thanks to Germany's largest 5G network, each and every club will have the possibility in future of broadcasting their games live on sporttotal.tv," says Peter Lauterbach, SPORTTOTAL AG's CEO.
Platform as a digital home sporttotal.tv offers clubs an online presence which can be individually designed and where fans can retrieve all the news about their club. For regional and local supporters it is the ideal platform for supporting the club through digital sponsoring. Sponsoring will provide clubs with an additional source of funds, as sporttotal.tv gives the clubs a share in the proceeds from club related advertising.

A shadow is looming over Germany's election: the spectre of the far-left Linke party, heir to the communists who once ruled East Germany, coming in from the political wilderness. At least, that is what Angela Merkel's conservatives want voters to think. Behind in polls just days before Sunday's vote, her would-be successor is warning that Social Democrats, if victorious, would let the far-left into power.
Investors are grappling with how an unwind of the Federal Reserve’s easy money policies could affect asset prices, after the central bank signaled that a taper of its bond-buying program was closer than ever and suggested it may raise rates at a faster-than-expected pace. In what some described as a hawkish tilt, the Federal Reserve on Wednesday cleared the way to begin reducing its monthly bond purchases as soon as November, and nine of 18 U.S. central bank policymakers projected borrowing costs will need to rise in 2022. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said the U.S. central bank could conclude its tapering process around the middle of next year, as long as the recovery remains on track.
