Logging & archiving

Accurate & consistent broadcast metadata

Opta understands the need for accurate and consistent broadcast metadata to assist your production workflows and create practical and usable match logs and video archives.

Embedded in widely used broadcast software packages

We have partnered with the most widely used services in the broadcast industry including:
