DetailsMichelle Clancy | 28 July 2015

T3Media will provide video content management and metadata services for the 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 Centre in Flushing Meadows, Corona Park, Queens, New York City. 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 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 telecast partners via Library Manager.

"We are pleased to announce this expanded partnership with T3Media," said Aaron Segal, director of broadcasting at 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."
