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:

  • EVS. Our data has been formatted to EVS IP Director format to allow automated integration and clip generation.
  • Ardendo. Opta data has also been integrated with Ardendo MAM software to make searching and archiving as easy as possible.
  • Logging & Data Feeds. Our timestamped data is ideal for logging key match events in a robust and consistent manner and can be integrated into other 3rd party software packages.
