For the last 20 years, the Festival International des Sports Extrêmes (FISE) in Montpellier has been a staple event in the action sports calendar. Gathering the best international riders over five days of insanity, with nearly 25 different competitions in skateboarding, inline skating, mountain biking, BMXing and wakeboarding. With a unique competition format open to both pros, amateurs, juniors and women riders, the event is free to attend for the public. In 2017 the World Series is also taking place in Budapest, Edmonton and Chengdu in China.
Following a series of tests, Tellyo was first deployed at the Montpellier World Series in May 2017. This event held special importance for the FISE team – it was the event’s 20th anniversary and in their home city where it all began.
With over 600,000 visitors, the hugely successful event showcases FISE’s ethos of allowing the audience to get up-close to the action. It’s this intensity that FISE wanted to mirror in its social content, something we’ve enabled through live streaming and the real-time sharing of clips.
The deployment of Tellyo also enabled FISE to focus on the growth of its social media team. Through our system, people working on location were additionally supported by those working remotely.
TELLYO HAS EMPOWERED FISE TO:
- Live stream or clip content from all filmed heats and finals.
- Stream content in different languages according to social audience preferences.
- Brand content differently depending on the social channel and commercial message.
- Add custom graphics to content published across social media featuring individual rider information and different commercial branding.
- Simultaneously engage fans on multiple social channels without increasing the bandwidth needed in the OB Truck.
In choosing to work with Tellyo, we are recreating the live experience online
and giving our fans engaging content across multiple social media platforms.
We are very excited to be reinforcing the digitalisation of FISE with Tellyo.
