LONDON and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF. (June 25, 2012) – Ooyala, the fastest growing online video technology company, today announced it is working with The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) and The Championships at Wimbledon to broaden distribution of Wimbledon video content.

Tennis fans around the world will be able to keep up with one of the world’s most popular contests on the official Wimbledon website via their PC, iOS and Android devices.
Wimbledon is leveraging Ooyala’s advanced video monetization tools to promote premiere tournament sponsors, including Rolex and Evian, within the video player.

Ooyala is proud to be part of this historic event, delivering some of the most exciting sports video of the year to a global audience.
