OLYMPICS

How a large Canadian broadcaster uses YEPCO to cover the Olympics more efficiently

The Olympics data feed is a great resource of information, though complex. The challenge was to make the information accessible to sports journalists and keeping up with the massive amount of data.


Major Pain Points

• Existing Avid system not built around sports
• More incoming content available than what could be covered
• Journalists asking for tools that are easier to use


Challenge

• Massive amount of data
• System stability is very important
• Enhance existing system


Approach

• Create highlight edits automatically
• Embed YEPCO's great UX into the Avid system
• Add value to the existing workflows


Results

• More than 30 sports covered
• Thousands of logs made accessible
• Dozens of journalists working simultaneously


Benefits

YEPCO helped making the most of the Olympic Data Feed (ODF) data by creating highlight packages and excellent content easily in Avid MediaCentral Cloud UX.
