Fox Sports Taps Burst to Distribute Original Video Content on Social and Digital Platforms

FOX Sports Regional Networks and Burst, the technology platform that's helping content creators unlock the power of mobile video, today announced a new multi-year licensing agreement. Burst technology will be used to distribute original video content on social and digital platforms to connect with local sports fans and viewers.

With the Burst platform, FOX Sports Regional Networks will be able to create mobile video that will showcase behind-the-scenes content and insight from on-air talent and producers that will then be pushed out on FOX Sports' digital platforms and on social media in real-time.

FOX Sports Regional Networks is the TV home for 44 MLB, NHL and NBA teams. FOX Sports has a dozen or more people working at each game.

“The key feature with Burst is the ability to have multiple people collect video that shows up in one video player,” said David Mortlock, vice president, FOX Sports Regional Networks. “All of these people, from our production team to our digital writers, can now help capture the energy and passion around the team leading up to game time.”

In addition to distributing mobile video content out on digital and social platforms, FOX Sports has the ability to seamlessly crowd source user-generated mobile video from fans across the networks' wide-range of games and team events. This content can be delivered directly into the live telecast or shared on social media without requiring the fan to download an app to participate.

"Hundreds of hours of user-generated mobile video content are created and posted every day at or around sporting and live events," said Bryant McBride, CEO and co-founder, Burst. "Broadcasters, leagues, teams and even brand sponsors have been anxiously awaiting a way to make this authentic content their own and integrate it securely and seamlessly into their own workflows. Burst is the only technology platform that has built an enterprise-grade bridge from mobile video to broadcast, opening up a new world of opportunities for broadcasters and media companies, and creating TV history with innovators like FOX Regional Sports Networks."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter.

Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The material was delivered interac...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
