)-- XOS Technologies Forms XOS Digital to Answer Universities' Needs to Preserve, Manage and Monetize Historical Footage.
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, the worldwide 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 just 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 search them. Thanks to this unprecedented access, universities and conferences will 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 visionary ideas have helped professional and collegiate sports teams, conferences and leagues leverage the very latest in technology to gain and maintain competitive advantage.
XOS Digital will also offer invaluable 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 ideally 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 said. "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. The 16,000-square-foot space houses a new state-of-the-art ingest facility, a data center and production studios.
