Munich, Germany – Sept 16 2018
 

YEPCO is delighted to announce that it is now providing a sports data feed connector for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, part of the Adobe Creative Cloud®. YEPCO offers great advantages for organizations using Adobe Premiere Pro CC to edit and produce their sports content.
 


 

One of the biggest problems facing production teams is the time and expense required to manually log their licensed sports data. YEPCO’s connector can dramatically increase data turnaround times, while also reducing the labor hours required in the logging and production process.
 

For example, logging a Premier League game can take 120 minutes, however, with YEPCO’s sports data feed connector all content is logged automatically as event markers. This allows content creators to easily search for the most important events and build highlights packages quickly and easily.
 

YEPCO’s automated marker creation feature ensures consistency for facilities using both Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Avid MediaCentral, making it much simpler to identify and import the game data they need. The metadata added by YEPCO can be easily searched using the Premiere Pro search box.
 

The biggest impact that YEPCO’s sports data connector will have is on a customer’s bottom line. With their licensed data being auto-logged, they will be able to get much more value out of licensed sports data, while simultaneously cutting the effort needed, increasing their return on investment.

These were 6 questions, not 5!

YES. We like providing more than expected 😉

The FIFA World Cup™, held once every four years, is one of the greatest sporting and media spectacles on the planet. In 2014, total in-home audience reach was 3.2 billion people, with nearly 300 million watching online or via mobile devices.

While the television audience is expected to remain static, the global consumption of highlights packages and interactive content through a wider variety of platforms is expected to surge, reflecting the changing nature of global sports consumption. For the upcoming World Cup and keeping on top of the rapidly changing media landscape, speed of turnover and accuracy in content delivery is vital.

Challenges

With 32 teams, comprising more than 700 players, taking part in 64 matches over the space of a month, the need for loggers and ingest operators to be able to turn around incoming data quickly is obvious. From there, journalists and content creators must be able to easily access the content they need to enhance stories, populate interactive offerings and update social media feeds.

With the high level of competition, especially in the field of online media, traditional systems of formatting and relaying your licensed sports content can mean failing to maximize your investment. Audiences will expect near-immediate and detailed updates on games of interest and with so many eyes guaranteed to be on the World Cup, a failure to match expectations can lead to your audience looking elsewhere.

How YEPCO can help

Content Logged Automatically

All game events are automatically logged and accessible through Avid MediaCentral or Adobe Premiere Pro. This means that content creators will be able to easily search for the specific highlights they need using your system’s search function, without having to wade through data they don’t need.

Faster Turnaround Times

By automatically logging your licensed sports content from providers such as Opta or Sportradar, you can dramatically cut the amount of time it takes to publish your content. As well as the speed of availability, easy-to-use markers also make your production process a lot quicker.

More Focus on Detail

As data and markers arrive automatically, loggers will now be able to focus on delivering greater detail to your assets and adding a richer story to specific match events.

Automatically Create Highlights

Linked sequences or events can automatically be created with ease. Using filters, areas of interest such as red cards, a specific nation’s goals or penalty incidents can be grouped together in highlights packages automatically.

Access to historical and future game data

The historical World Cup database (going back to 1966) can also be easily viewed and mined for information. The same goes for future fixtures and points of interest concerning each match.

Olympic Rings

What is the Olympic Data Feed (ODF)?

The Olympic Data Feed (ODF) is the IOC’s official data delivery platform for all Olympic events. It sends schedule information about upcoming events as well as data logs about live and past events as XML files.

This allows the IOC to provide centralized and consistent data to all of its partners and licensed rights holders around the world. These stakeholders can then process and relay the desired information to their audience. This can be provided in a wide variety of formats such as highlights packages, live tickers and website content. The data provided is a very high through-put feed and individual XML messages sent for events can number in the thousands.

As the technical lead of the BBC’s Olympics 2012 project describes, it allowed them to provide detailed and fast event data and statistics for 10,490 athlete pages, 174 endpoints and ten different BBC Olympics products, such as their Interactive Video Player and mobile app. It provided automatic updates for their audience as well as easy and effective access for journalists and content curators.
How can I get access to the Olympic Data Feed?

YEPCO Olympics Data Feed Overview

YEPCO Olympics Data Feed Overview

The Olympic Data Feed is owned and created by the IOC, thus controlling the distribution of all results and data for their events. It provides the ODF to IT Providers, International Sports Federations and National Olympic Committees as well as licensed media partners and sports websites. Along with our dedicated Olympic Data Feed Connector, YEPCO can assist organizations wishing to become licensed partners by connecting you with the IOC itself and other business partners.

How can YEPCO help to cut effort using the Olympic Data Feed?

YEPCO makes the Olympic Data Feed available inside Avid MediaCentral. This automates the creation of highlights sequences, cutting the effort and workhours necessary to turn your data into functional content. It also gives your sports journalists faster and easier access to your content.

Automatically Create Highlights

With YEPCO you will have the ability to automatically create highlights for specific threads of interest such as medal journeys, nation specific performances and individual athletes. For example, you can set filters to automatically compile a highlights package for all of Norway’s medal winning athletes in Alpine Skiing.

Benefit
Without the need to individually track and combine highlights packages you will be able to create the content you want faster than your competitors, without having to increase your workforce.

Easy access to all upcoming and past events

You will also have the ability to view all upcoming and past events inside Avid MediaCentral and the data and video highlights associated with them.

Benefit
This allows ingest operators and sports loggers to combine Olympic events and their associated metadata with the video recordings. Your journalists and content creators will have direct access to high levels of event data to create richer levels of detail.

Content logged automatically

All logs are available within Avid MediaCentral which makes for easily readable and clickable highlight options with instantly loading video.

Benefit
Your journalists and content creators can quickly and efficiently locate the participants, competitions and results they want from among the hundreds of Olympic events. The ease of searching and filtering information and highlights allows them to create rich and effective content quickly and easily on their own.
