T3Media will provide video content management and metadata services for the United States Tennis Association (USTA), during the 2015 US Open Tennis Championships. The event takes place from 31 August to 13 September at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, New York City. T3Media provides title management, delivery and monetisation services for sports, media, and entertainment companies.
During this year’s US Open, T3Media will ingest and digitise content sourced from ten live feeds throughout the venue. The match play will be catalogued through a metadata schema designed by T3Media and executed via EVS IP Logger, and made available for the USTA’s use immediately via T3Media’s digital Library Manager. All of the master content will be fully archived post-event but melts and interviews will be made available for USTA and their partners via Library Manager.
“We are pleased to announce this expanded partnership with T3Media,” said Aaron, Segal, director, broadcasting, USTA. “It builds upon an already solid relationship that we have shared for years through the licensing of our content. The adoption of their innovative fully integrated services will allow us to close the gap for live action content management, and will give our team access to match play quickly and easily.”
Harris Morris, CEO of T3Media added, “The contract with the USTA opens new doors for T3Media in an arena where we have executed well in the past. T3Media is a leader in capturing live sports action and making it available across any format requested or required. We understand the demands our clients face in a high-pressure, time-constrained environment, and our consistent execution and proven performance is bringing new and exciting opportunities to the table.”
