Core also handles digital ingest and metadata workflows, as well as third-party transcoding and closed-captioning services from Visual Data Media Services. Wazee Digital facilitates delivery of current WPT episodes to Fox Sports Regional Networks, while Core is used in-house to distribute episodes to international broadcasters.
