Bannister Lake has a sports ticker solution that’s aimed at helping broadcasters and sports networks centralize and consolidate sports coverage workflows into a single solution.
Branded as BL Sports Ticker, the solution powers an unlimited number of channels and lets networks control regional differentiators and brand identities from a single data source. Editorial staff can preschedule content by time zones or work shifts, rather than by game and match dates. In master control, automation support replaces manually driven squeezes and state changes with fully-automated scheduled operations.
The solution also lets broadcasters highlight regional franchises per league, per channel and per sport; supplement automated data with regionalized editorial content; build daily rundowns; and output to TV, web or mobile.
“With the game basics like scores and stats coming in automatically, editorial personnel can focus on adding the detail that really excites the audience,” Chris Mintz, lead solution architect at Bannister Lake, said in a statement. “It gives them time to tell team and athlete stories.”
The solution is available as an enterprise server that ships in a 1RU chassis.
