K League media center opens, provides footage to 17 countries Updated: 2020-05-08 17:03:05 KST

The K League has opened a new media center this season to provide a higher quality of broadcasting and content service.
The opening of the media center couldn't come at a better time, as the K League is currently in the international media spotlight as one of the only leagues in action around the world.
There are currently 36 countries with broadcasting rights, including the UK and Germany, as well as several online platforms.
The media center's cutting edge infrastructure allows the league to share games and highlights across the globe.
For example, with just a few clicks, highlight reels are ready to be shared with fans.
The center also allows the league to produce unified graphics.
In previous seasons, each broadcaster had to create their own graphics, but with the center being the source, graphics can be standardized to maintain a high quality across the board.
On top of this, the center will take care of the league's social media.
And it is especially busy this week as it prepares to provide the first game of the season for free on its Youtube and Twitter accounts live with English commentary.
Football commentator Simon Hill will be working remotely from Australia to provide commentary for the season opener, but for the rest of the season, the English commentary will be produced at the media center.
This centralized coverage was a project they have planned for since 2018.

"Out of the domestic professional sports, football is the one with the biggest demand from other countries. That being said, we really wanted to improve the quality and stabilize the program."

The K League says having this media center as the central source for global broadcasts will lead to a higher quality product for the fans. In addition it will be able to provide fun, interactive content.
