Primestream's FORK Logger Now Integrates With STATS Data for Faster, More Accurate Sports Logging
March 26, 2014 --
Primestream(R), a leader in media asset management and production automation, today announced that FORK(TM) Logger, the metadata tagging module in the acclaimed FORK Production Suite, now integrates with in-depth data feeds from STATS, the global leader in sports information, technology, and content. With this service, FORK Logger users can start their sessions with pre-populated placeholders that contain rich event data, such as team name, location info, rosters, conference, and win/loss records, pulled from the STATS feed. Working from these populated placeholders enables users to avoid manually entering data and increases the accuracy of the descriptive information.
FORK Logger, a highly customizable and powerful tool used by major news, sports, and entertainment operations worldwide, allows users to log live or prerecorded video with speed and accuracy, in turn making assets easier to manage, automate, and ultimately monetize.
The STATS service maintains up-to-the-minute roster and player statistical information -- enabling FORK Logger users to get to work faster and easier than ever -- while remaining updated with information across events.
Primestream will demonstrate FORK Logger with the STATS integration at the 2014 NAB Show at booth SL10216. The integration will be available in the second half of 2014. Pricing is available through local resellers and integrators or directly from Primestream at firstname.lastname@example.org.
