Today Concentia Digital's newest division, ArchivaSports(TM), unveiled the first comprehensive global video repository dedicated to the sports industry. ArchivaSports(TM) distinctive service offerings will supply athletes, parents, coaches, agents, and scouts with a centralized online warehouse to store, search, re-use and maintain every aspect of a sporting event. Powered by Concentia Digital's flagship asset management solution, Media Archive System (MAS(TM)), this robust web-based application can be accessed from anywhere around the world.
The MAS(TM) technology allows users of ArchivaSports to take full advantage of exclusive features and enhanced video editing capabilities. These include the ability to digitally clip, annotate, consolidate, collaborate with, distribute, and archive every piece of video footage, highlight reel, image, and statistical data contained within the system.
"What sets ArchivaSports apart is that we can directly enhance every facet in the sporting community," said Derrick Lewis, President of ArchivaSports. "For example, the system can dramatically increase an individual athlete's visibility and competitive value, it can allow agents to effectively track and profile potential recruits, and it can also provide high school, college, and professional teams rapid game analysis for future strategic game planning. Every individual involved, from a parent to a scout, can benefit from using ArchivaSports."
The ArchivaSports base system is comprised of multiple product offerings which include ArchivaAthlete(TM), ArchivaTeam(TM), ArchivaAgent(TM), ArchivaParent(TM), ArchivaCamp(TM), and the ArchivaSports Network(TM). Each product is focused on the special needs of the customer and provides the tools and the infrastructure to make the product easy to use. "We recognize that each of our customers has unique needs, and we are able to leverage the flexibility of MAS in order to make ArchivaSports intuitive for all these diverse users," said Duane Shugars, CEO of Concentia Digital.
While many of the other systems only track statistics, small highlight clips and handle limited sports, ArchivaSports allows every game, every play and every comment to be managed and hosted so that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
"ArchivaSports provides us with state-of-the-art features for clipping broadband video, combining our clips from multiple videos, and then instantly e-mailing, pod casting and syndicating one play, many plays, or the entire game to our desired audience. What we found most amazing is all this could be done from a web browser on any desktop, so there was no need to install any software on our local computers, or buy any additional hardware," said Adrian Branch, Charlotte Bobcats Television Color Analyst and National Motivational Speaker.
"Professional basketball teams in France had a chance to experience the full service ArchivaSports is providing and as a head coach of one of those teams and in the name of the management I can just say it is a great service supported by great technology and very experienced know how. It allows the clubs to upload their games almost live to the website and of course to watch the other games on the site. The clubs can download very fast any game in order to include the video in their own scouting system. The clubs can also use the very interesting and easy clipping system ArchivaSports is providing directly on the site in order to make scouting clips or any highlights that can directly be seen on the website or even sent by mail to anybody. The management of ArchivaSports is giving a double guarantee: a high technical experience in the computer, website and video systems and a high level professional sports experience to understand what professional sports staffs can be expecting," said Christian Monschau, Basketball Head Coach, STB LE HAVRE, PROA LNB FRANCE.
