International Tennis Federation Selects Imagen

News Image
Imagen has been chosen by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the world governing body of tennis, to manage and distribute its extensive content archive of 15,000 assets dating back to the 1940s from the Davis Cup and Fed Cup competitions.

Following a project in which the ITF digitised its content catalogue, which previously existed only in physical copies across multiple formats, including VHS, betacam, SD and HD tapes and 2K film, the ITF engaged Imagen to store, manage and share its content in order to generate more value from its assets and actively commercialise content. The Imagen content portal provides the ITF’s internal teams with instant access to high-resolution video from its entire archive.

A key benefit for the ITF is quick access to the archive when trying to manage and access footage. The platform allows the Federation to distribute content to its partners, manage clip sales and asset licensing, and leverage archive content for digital campaigns to maximise its value.

Imagen Media Logger allows the ITF to apply time-based metadata to its video, making it quicker and easier to search for specific types of clip, including fan reactions, bench moments or aces. The metadata functionality therefore drastically reduces the time it takes for the ITF to deliver content to clients and has allowed for faster reaction time internally to events happening across tennis. This allows the ITF’s social and digital teams to capitalise on the exposure of an event in the moment, particularly with short form clips.

The customisable platform enables the ITF to target certain clients with relevant content. In future, the platform will allow the ITF to provide access to content to its member nations in order for them to use it for regional promotional materials.
