Digital Nirvana’s New Automated Sports Clipping Service to Make its IBC Debut

The cloud-based service offers automated clipping with metadata and caption synchronization simultaneously

At the upcoming IBC Show in Amsterdam, Digital Nirvana will showcase its new all-in-one automated sports clipping service. The sports clipping service is coupled with automated caption synchronization, and enables broadcasters to easily capture and share every fast-paced moment in a game. Designed to empower users to publish sports media content online and via social media without time lag while complying with new FCC regulations, Digital Nirvana will show the automated sports clipping service during IBC in Hall 14, Stand P25.

“The way that viewers consume sports has changed in recent years, with the consumption of conventional broadcast of entire games decreasing, while an ever-growing percentage of audiences are tuning into games and matches via social media, online, or on mobile devices,” said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana’s CEO. “This translates into more viewers consuming sports snippets, rather than watching the entire event. In response to growing demand, we developed our automated sports clipping service so that broadcasters can easily capture and reproduce any fast-paced moment of a game. The service allows them to effortlessly create relevant video highlights and better cater to their evolving audiences.”

First introduced earlier this year at NAB, Digital Nirvana’s sports clipping service automatically analyzes sports broadcasts in real-time and generates ready-to-publish clips of those highlights. Offering state-of-the-art workflow and customization capabilities, the service can also generate highlight images, GIFs, and sports montages for customers’ social media promotional activities.

Digital Nirvana’s sporting clipping service also synchronizes broadcast captions, enabling sports broadcasters to publish sports media content online and via social media without any considerable time delay while complying with all FCC regulations. The synchronized captions also enhances viewer experience, benefitting the hearing impaired, as well as the increasing amount of people that watch sports highlights in public settings without sound on. Digital Nirvana’s sports clipping service reduces manual intervention in broadcast operations while catering to the viewers’ needs and meeting compliance requirements.
