Archive Services

Posted on:

As videotapes have become increasingly obsolete, it has become important for federations, rights holders and broadcasters to modernise their video archive and preserve their history, allowing it to be accessed and enjoyed by future generations.

While many of our clients move away from videotape-based workflows, they have seen the value of our cutting-edge digital archive management system, the perfect outsourced solution to suit their video archive needs.

It’s a cost-effective and scalable service which allows clients, and their partners, to use a customised web portal to search, view, deliver and commercialise their footage in any format from any location. This delivers savings on resource and time through improved workflows. It also means they can control the centralised store of their digital archive, and distribute content to other partners from a single managed point.

This system already stores and manages over 10,000 hours of content which, using rich metadata, is all available to search and instantly view at the click of a button.

Clients who have already entrusted us with their content – effectively their legacies – include The FA, the International Paralympic Committee, Federation of International Hockey, Tottenham Hotspur FC and sports marketing agency Pitch International – making us the custodian of some of the greatest moments in sporting history. 

Behind this serviced solution lies EVS – a technology provider for sports and live production broadcasts worldwide. We’ve installed the premium EVS archive system – Media Archive Director – which is also used by many of the world’s top broadcasters and federations, including UEFA, FIFA and Al-Jazeera. But our EVS setup has been custom built and configured to create a shared, serviced-based solution, meaning the cost to access this premium product is significantly reduced.
