AUDIO & VIDEO

Independent Content Services Limited (ICS) are true gaming and betting multimedia specialists with a growing international focus. We can produce quality bespoke content in over 50 languages, and we currently work with a number of major operators in the gambling sector.

We employ a number of specialist broadcasters, journalists and analysts both in our UK Head Office and around the world.

As a result, we are able to produce and broadcast a wide range of live sports commentaries, radio programmes and audio news bulletins, as well as providing tailored video services.

1. Commentary

Audio commentary is the best way for punters to stay involved with their chosen match and bet in-play simultaneously.

Over the past couple of years, our Audio Commentary service has grown considerably and has proven to be very popular with punters.

In a betting environment, audio commentary works particularly well as aural and visual senses complement each other. Live odds and in-play betting opportunities are enhanced by an appropriate commentary as, unlike video, the visual senses are not compromised.

Consequently, punters are able to make more informed in-play betting choices by following a match or event through commentary.

We can provide commentaries in a range of languages and styles.

Football Commentary

To make best use of the audio, we suggest making it available to punters in two ways:

  1. Embed the stream for a particular match in the corresponding in-play betting page. Customers can then click on an audio symbol to hear that match.
  2. Provide an always available radio button which opens a player (like the example below). The menu allows listeners to switch between games or sports.
