MLB Teams Go To Bat for Scouting Video Services

ALEXANDRIA, Va – (July 8, 2011) – Long known for global leadership in sports data analytics, Major League Baseball clubs have turned their attention towards investment in long term technology infrastructures to support the flood of video content streaming into the parks. Working closely with ScoutAdvisor Corp, baseball’s premier data synthesis firm, teams’ hardware and software strategies are firming up into complex blueprints for handling years of variable bitrates, sources, codecs, and qualities all under one system.

Yates Jarvis, VP Strategy & Creative at ScoutAdvisor pointed out that their current offerings have been in the works for quite a while. “We realized about two years ago that investment in a new platform of video services for these teams wasn’t an option, but a necessity,” stated Jarvis. “With video content streaming in from parks, scouts, and third party providers, we knew we had a great opportunity in focusing on what we do best: seamless aggregation and delivery.”

ScoutAdvisor, primarily recognized for its professional data synthesis platform, released new functionality for its video services earlier this month. “Teams now have access to any video, any time, on any device. The ramp up time is minimal, and the interfaces are custom. We’ve moved away from a one-size-fits-all product and focused on delivering tailored services that compliment prior team investment in technology, instead of deprecating it,” noted Jarvis.

The video services have been developed for a number of teams and tout technology that maximizes the quality of streaming for traveling scouts on mobile devices such as Android or Apple iOS tablets and phones.
