HATBORO, Pa., Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sports Network (TSN) – It was announced today by The Sports Network, the nation's premiere real-time source and wire service for sports content, servicing hundreds of clients and millions of viewers/users world-wide, that it is launching a pilot program with You Digital Media to expand its news and data service offering to now include current and proprietary video content distribution. You Digital Media's online video creation platform allows for the instant creation and display of video content onto its partners' websites absent any video production, programming, third-party licensing or hosting requirements. The Sports Network journalist staff will now have the ability to create real-time video content to embed right into their news stories, game recaps, previews and much more.
This service will also be available to clients of TSN that are utilizing their branded/hosted applications.
"By working with You Digital Media," stated Mickey Charles, CEO and President of The Sports Network, "we will be able to have all of our editorial staff begin creating video content, enabling our company to offer a depth of sports product unparalleled anywhere on the Internet currently. Adding video was inevitable but alliances are not immediate. They are researched and processed. You Digital Media's turnkey solution was determined to be our best option at this time and into the foreseeable future. It allows us to begin creating video content as we enter 2011 and, in so doing, we are also able to create an incremental revenue stream through the associated video advertising on the videos."
"We are very excited about the partnership with The Sports Network," added Jeff Singer, CEO of You Digital Media, "as they are the acknowledged leader of the sports data industry. No one can match their level of information and proprietary news gathering, as well as speed and accuracy. We are really looking forward to seeing the video content they create using our tools, both as their partners and, simply, as general sports fans ourselves."
You Digital Media's online video creation platform utilizes its patent pending proprietary technology to allows its partners the ability to create and share an unlimited amount of high quality, branded, sports themed video content. The user interface is simple to use and requires no video production skills or training, which is ideally suited to websites like that of TSN that have numerous writer/contributors who are experts in the specific subjects they cover.
