Vidispine, Arvato Systems’ portfolio that provides scalable IT solutions for media and industry, has announced that the Las Vegas Raiders, a National Football League (NFL) Team, have chosen Vidispine’s Media Asset Management solution to streamline its media operations and provide options for cloud-based workflows and AI media services.
The Las Vegas Raiders’ Silver and Black Productions team produces and archives a wide variety of media content, from game footage to player features to historical documentaries, for distribution across broadcast, in-stadium, digital, and social media platforms. The Raiders were seeking a modern, flexible, and cloud-native API-based system that offered custom workflows and integrations to streamline operations. It also needed to be able to integrate easily with other applications such as QC, ingest/playout, and archiving and – crucially – with the NFL’s Next Gen Stats application.
Additional requirements included integration with MoovIT’s Helmut production asset management (PAM) tools for Adobe Premiere, AWS cloud capabilities for on-prem or hybrid deployment (Arvato Systems is a long-term AWS partner), and future integration with AI media services such as facial recognition and more.
Brad Phinney, SVP, Chief Experience Officer, Las Vegas Raiders, said, “When looking at our key requirements, in addition to the protection and the searchability of our media assets, what the Vidispine portfolio was able to offer, the choice was clear. The Vidispine system does everything we need today plus keeps us ready for future developments and functionality. Working with a vendor that has experience with sports media requirements and specifically the NFL was a major plus point.”
Kurt Krinke, Vice President North America Sales for Vidispine portfolio, said, “We are delighted that our solution was chosen by the Raiders and we look forward to making this project another success in the sports market managed by Vidispine Sales Manager John Proctor.”
