Wazee Digital, Base Media Cloud and Formula E take the stage at HITS Europe (MESA Europe)

Published June 7, 2018

In a HITS Europe 2018 session entitled “Racing to the Cloud: Sports Media Storage and Centralised Content Access”, Wazee Digital and BASE Media Cloud will be joined by their customer Formula E, to discuss and demonstrate how they are revolutionising media content storage and global distribution workflows by moving to cloud-based, online working. The end-to-end cloud-native solution is tailored for rights holders, brands, producers and distributors who are interested in benefitting from the cost savings, flexibility and scalability of ready-made cloud services without the need for in-house IT expertise.

Formula E will present their incredible story – which started life in Sep 2014 around the grounds of the Olympic Park in Beijing – through to today, where they are currently in the fourth edition of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Wazee Digital and BASE Media Cloud will then share their joint Formula E solution case-study and product demonstration, which is helping to inform and inspire new ways of working for Formula E.

HITS Europe 2018 takes place in London on 20 June. As of Thursday 7 June, registrations are close to capacity although some spaces may still be available. For full programme details and to register please click HERE or email Teresa: teresa@mesaeurope.org.
