European Tour Productions choose Imagen for secure video news distribution

20th February 2016 – European Tour Productions [ETP], the joint venture formed by IMG Media and the European Tour, has selected Imagen’s Enterprise Video Platform to create a secure web portal for video news distribution for the European Tour events and The Ryder Cup.

Tournament and promotional content produced by ETP on a daily basis is transferred to Imagen where searchable metadata is added to each file via the ImagenWeb interface.

The website is accessed via a secure broadcaster login. Users can search via key words and drop-down lists, and can view and download content. An RSS feed is generated to inform the appropriate users when new content is made available. ETP can also track client usage via the reporting dashboard.

Rupert Hampel, Joint Managing Director, European Tour Productions, said: “We look forward to working with Imagen EVP as we develop our video news syndication service to provide our global clients with tournament footage and interviews as efficiently as possible.”

Tom Blake, CEO, Imagen, said, “Imagen EVP enables organisations like ETP, which have vast quantities of valuable content, to share their assets quickly, easily and securely, giving their clients the power to find exactly the clips they need, when they need them.”
