XOS Digital Preserves College Sports Content
For the past 10 years, when a professional or collegiate
team needed to obtain the right coaching and scouting tools to gain and
maintain a competitive edge, they turned to XOS Technologies, a leader in
integrating video, data, and interactive technologies. In recent years, those
same teams came to the realization that their most prized videos and
photos are wasting away on forgotten shelves, so they are once
again turning to their trusted technology partner for a solution.
“XOS Technologies has always prided itself on innovating technology
solutions for our valued partners,” says XOS Technologies co-founder and chief
executive officer Randy Eccker. “We at XOS are very excited that our new
division, XOS Digital, will provide a robust solution to a long-standing
problem. XOS Digital becomes a great complement to our recent acquisition of
majority interest of Collegiate Images, the nation’s leader in licensing and
distribution of college sports digital video content.”
Imagine the most famous plays in sports history sitting on shelves in
libraries, buried in the depths of arenas, or even getting tossed out with the
trash. Now, XOS Digital is providing those priceless moments a permanent and
safe digital home so that teams that once had limited access to their own
historic highlights will be able to preserve, organize and instantaneously
Universities and conferences will now have never-before-available
opportunities to generate revenue with these untapped assets.
Dan Aton, the founder and chief innovation officer for XOS Technologies, will
head XOS Digital. Aton’s ideas have helped professional and collegiate sports
teams, conferences, and leagues leverage the latest in technology to gain and
maintain competitive advantage.
XOS Digital will also offer opportunities to marketers eager to reach sports
enthusiasts across all forms of digital media. With XOS Digital’s new sports
video syndication platform, clients will be offered flexible and customizable
branded content campaigns targeting fans on national, local and niche
publisher-owned Web and mobile destinations.
With its access to countless hours of exclusive college sports video and strong
relationships with the nation’s top schools, conferences and bowls, XOS Digital
is positioned to bring the action on campus to the fans.
“XOS Digital’s technology will create an immediate link between the
school’s archives and the ability to instantaneously feed Web, mobile and media
outlets with content from today’s game or last century’s game,” Aton says.
“With XOS Digital, we’re utilizing XOS Technologies’ 15-plus years
experience of creating solutions for sports-related digital asset management.
This newly formed division will offer clients a host of services and products
to preserve and organize deteriorating media history, as well as a platform to
host all future content.”
XOS Digital will operate out of XOS Technologies’ newly expanded offices in Lake Mary, Florida.
