Dixon’s Graphical Loggers are simple to use yet enable the entry of Rich MetaData quickly through Content Intelligence, The logger knows the sport being logged, how many camera angles are available and the types of players. The logger imports external data feeds including rosters, transcripts, live game statistics, and AI metadata. The logger writes to our database and to MAM’s & PAM’s live so the rich metadata is put to work immediately. The logger can even “read” the score board to fill in pitcher, batter, inning, outs, count and baserunners. Customers can have multiple sport loggers with tag buttons that are consistent across all the sports.
Dixon’s Graphical Search gives instant access to decades of content via an interface that also knows your content. The searches are intuitive, think of what you need and there it is ready for editing. Dixon has two types of searches. The first is the entire library search with date ranges, the same buttons that are on the logger and easy player and coach entry fields. The second is the Hilite Selector which is purpose built for producing day of game highlights. Select the sport first then the game from the games played that day. Game summary buttons instantly show plays that tell the story of the game. The Searches drag & drop any angle to your Editor bin.
Dixon’s benefits are further multiplied by our seamless integration with other broadcast products to create powerful workflows. Dixon integrates with; ingest controllers & servers, MAM’s & PAM’s, transcoders, production editors, content distribution systems, AI engines, and even scoreboards. The Logger can be launched from a MAM or generate logging sessions triggered by an ingest controller. The logger can ingest a low-res for logging or use any available low-res. The Logger writes metadata to PAM’s and MAM’s Live. Searches instantly allow dragging and dropping to Production Editors to create packages.
