Barcelona-based broadcasting solutions company VSN claims to be taking sports and live events cataloguing to a new level through the integration of its media assets management (MAM) solution with VSNLogger, a new tool which enables users to directly log contents while these are being ingested.

Through the solution, which is to be presented at NABShow in Vegas in April, events being catalogued are bulked into the MAM system in real time, automatically getting segments associated with keywords and metadata entered from the logging platform. These functions allow any user to find, retrieve, edit and launch actions from the very moment the file is logged.

As an example of these functionalities, VSNLogger is able to have a live event logged and ingested at the MAM in real time. While this is happening at a sporting event, TV providers from other locations can share, for example, a goal scored on social networks, over-the-top (OTT) and Web TV, in different languages, almost instantly.

VSN claims the solution saves time and resources, and allows for enhanced collaborative work between departments that boosts productivity and allows audiences to be reached extremely quickly.
