Digital Nirvana Claims Unique Sports Clipping Service

The new cloud-based service simplifies operations for sports broadcasters in adhering to new FCC regulations.

Digital Nirvana claims a first of its kind automated sports clipping service. It boasts automated caption synchronization to publish sports media content online and via social media while complying with new FCC regulations.

The new sports clipping service automatically analyzes sports broadcasts in real-time and generates ready-to-publish clips of those highlights. The service can also generate highlight images and GIFs for customers’ social media promotional activities.

“Our new sports clippings service make it easy for sports broadcasters and content creators to quickly publish content to their website and social media, and it also improves the ways that broadcasters can make high quality video accessible for audience consumption from anywhere, at anytime,” explained Hiren Hindocha, president and CEO, Digital Nirvana. “Automatic closed captioning engages audiences more, particularly on social media where people may be tuning in while in public places without their audio on. Our sports clipping service was also created in response to new FCC regulations that will take effect in July and concern all broadcasters that air content online and on television.

“With this new rule, all video clips of live and near‐live programming must be captioned if the associated programming is shown on TV with captions. With our new automated sports clipping service, we’re aiming to make it easy for sports broadcasters to generate clips to share with its audiences, while at the same time being in compliance with all FCC regulations.”

The sports clipping service offers automated clipping with metadata and caption synchronization simultaneously, as well as an option for manually cleaning up text. Broadcasters can also quickly pick and choose content to publish sports clip montages. The service reduces the time and cost to publish content, and is available immediately.
