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.

Opta's unique data collection system means that we embed all of our data with time codes and metadata which work together to help broadcasters to reduce costs and increase efficiencies.

Embedded in widely used broadcast software packages

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