Rimage Looks To Tap Vast Potential in Sports Market With SVG Sponsorship

The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome its newest sponsor, Rimage. The pioneer in disc-production technology provides publishing, duplication, and printing solutions for CD, DVD, and Blu-ray formats. From economical desktop systems to high-volume production units, Rimage supplies digital publishing platforms to fit every need. It also offers a full line of consumables and support programs to ensure the quality of the finished disc and uptime of the system.

“As a new vertical for Rimage, we are thrilled about the potential the sports market has to offer to complement our other core markets, where we’ve experienced a great deal of success over the past 30 years,” says Jason Evans, regional business manager, Rimage Corp. ”Markets like banking, medical, software, and broadcast-video have counted on the Rimage name for years, and being able to bring a new solution to an entirely new market is both challenging and exciting. Enabling teams and sports networks to easily archive game footage on a reliable and inexpensive platform while also giving them an ideal way to distribute content both internally to their staff and players and out to their fans and other teams has streamlined their workflow immensely.”

In addition to hardware platforms, Rimage offers software for seamless integration to any end-user application, making it easier to produce discs. The company provides application developers with a robust software development kit and application programming interface to simplify integration of end-user applications with Rimage hardware. The systems can be used to produce video discs from either PCs or Macs. These systems can make one disc or hundreds and can be copy-protected as well as password-protected. The systems can be shared by multiple users just like networked printers.

“By partnering with Sports Video Group,” says Evans, “we greatly anticipate having the right exposure to this market so all sports teams can learn about and benefit from our archive and distribution solution for sports video.”
