Run by Future and TVB Europe, the Best of Show Awards recognise achievements in product innovation and service development at IBC 2018. Our cloud-based video production platform and its three new platform solutions are shortlisted in the ‘Delivery’ category.
Making their first appearances at IBC 2018, the new solutions ensure Tellyo Pro gives more power to digital and social teams to get video stories out quickly and more effectively shape the narrative across online channels.
The three new solutions are: Stream Studio (a cloud-based live production suite for creating customised live streams for social channels and audiences), Smart Clips (an intelligent tool for quickly clipping short videos and to assist teams and editors), and Auto Clip-to-Post (which fully automates clip creation, social messaging and social posting).
“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for the Best of Show Awards at IBC 2018, being run by Future and TVB Europe. It feels great to be recognised for our drive to continually deliver intelligent technology that supports digital teams, social video editors and video creators within an industry built on narrative storytelling. Being shortlisted is all down to the strength of our team and the excellent partnerships we have with our clients.”
This week we’re launching three exciting new solutions – Stream Studio, Smart Clips and Auto Clip-to-Post – as well as our Pro Media API partnership with Twitter. All will make their first appearances at the IBC Show 2018 in Amsterdam, which we’ll attending from Friday.
What’s the story behind our announcements? Because we’re driven to continuously deliver intelligent technology, our new solutions and Twitter partnership are designed to better enable digital and social teams to build video stories quickly and amplify these across the web, all in a highly managed, monetizable and secure way.
Our new solutions
These include a new product – Stream Studio – and two major feature upgrades in Smart Clips and Auto Clip-to-Post.
Stream Studio is our cloud-based live production suite for creating customised live streams for social channels and audiences. By switching between streams, adding visual layers and distributing to multiple destinations simultaneously, Stream Studio means you can build greater engagement and add value to audiences in real time.

Smart Clips is an intelligent tool for quickly clipping short videos. Designed to dramatically speed up work flows, it runs alongside human social-video editors and, through metadata, suggests clips and highlights. Editors can then choose to add clips to montages with a single click. Request a demo ›
Auto Clip-to-Post fully automates clip creation, social messaging and social posting. It can run on multiple streams simultaneously and, when combined with Smart Clips, multiplies the events and games one editor can effectively cover. Auto Clip-to-Post is entirely new to the market – a solution capable of pulling event metadata and using it in a unique and clever way to construct clips and social messages, then posting these to social channels.

Our Twitter Pro Media Partnership
All of the new solutions build upon our firm belief that the best stories are told by humans to humans, which has resulted in us putting considerable energy into empowering digital teams and social video editors, and equipping them with world-class technology solutions.
A clear example is our official Twitter Pro Media partnership, which now provides our existing and future clients with the highest level of video integration on Twitter.
The new partnership adds 20+ new Twitter features, including extended monetisation opportunities such as the Amplify Publisher Program and In-Stream Ads and Sponsorships, as well as enhanced geo-targeting, advanced meta-tagging and simplified publishing workflows.
“I’m delighted to announce the launch of our three new solutions – Stream Studio, Smart Clips and Auto Clip-to-Post – as well as our partnership with Twitter. These new developments will give more power to digital teams, social video editors and creators by delivering greater tools for getting video stories out quickly and more effectively shaping the narrative across online and social media channels. Our Twitter partnership will also enable teams, editors and creators to maximise video story telling on one of the globe’s favourite digital channels.”
Last night, Dutch racer Dion Beukeboom attempted to break the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Hour Record, gunning for Sir Bradley Wiggins’s iconic feat from three years ago.
Chasing the record at the Aguascalientes velodrome in Mexico, Beukeboom recorded 52.757 kilometres, ranking him 4th in distance covered in the illustrious event but still shy of Wiggins’s amazing mark of 54.526 kilometres which was set at London’s Olympic Velodrome in 2015.
Enabling global fans to witness this latest attempt at cycling’s most prestigious record, the UCI live streamed the event to Facebook and the UCI YouTube channel (tv.uci.ch). It also used Tellyo to create and share short clips of key moments to social media throughout Beukeboom’s attempt.
“Tellyo is delighted to have worked with the UCI on such a prestigious event. Through Tellyo, the UCI were able to capture key moments of the attempt, and create and share video edits, GIFs and still images across their social media, helping to engage their audience, share updates on progress and ultimately guide more viewers to the live stream.
“It was compelling viewing and congratulations should go to Beukeboom – it was a superb effort and truly awesome to watch.”

Today, the International Table Tennis Federation announced its deal with Tellyo, the most advanced social video production, editing and sharing platform on the market.
Tellyo will support the ITTF with the creation and sharing of video content on ITTF’s official social media channels and for all 80 ITTF tournaments; calendar highlights include the Seamaster 2017 ITTF World Tour, World Championships and World Cup Series.
The decision to work with Tellyo was made after an initial trial in February 2017, when the ITTF reached over three million fans and achieved 600,000 views of the video content Tellyo created.
Matthew Pound, Head of Communications at ITTF, said:
“We have found Tellyo to be a great platform for providing short form content for our fans from our top events, in real-time. This has increased engagement dramatically. We are looking forward to working with Tellyo to explore new functionalities to further service our fans.”
He continued: “There are similar services now on the market, however the ITTF chose Tellyo because it offered the best functionality, in a simple layout, for a competitive price.”
Using Tellyo, the ITTF will stream parts of its matches live on Facebook as well as show full games via its online streaming platform ‘itTV’. Tellyo will also enable the governing body to create video clips, featuring spectacular shots and rallies, that can then be shared on social platforms in seconds.
Our CEO, Richard Collins said:
“We’re delighted to partner with the ITTF. Table tennis is a great sport with a huge global following. Through the use of Tellyo, we look forward to helping the ITTF grow its following to new heights and increasing its engagement levels across their social platforms. The initial results are encouraging for both parties, with over three million individuals engaging with the content during a limited test.”
