There is an overwhelming amount of content being recorded by sports broadcasters and digital services teams. A broadcaster might capture hundreds of hours of content over the course of, say, a golf tournament, yet only a fraction of that content makes it to air. But what about the rest of it, such as interviews, scenic shots, promos, and behind-the-scenes footage? Too often, priceless moments that don’t make it into the broadcast get left on the cutting room floor because they’re either not preserved or the right people can’t access them, or both [...]

A few Sundays ago, I found myself at a rather strange Oscar party. As one can imagine, here in Los Angeles, folks make a pretty big deal about the Oscars. Let’s be honest, people make a big deal about everything out here. If you order a sandwich and it doesn’t come with an avocado, it can create complete and utter panic. Call the authorities, shut down the streets, we have no avocado! Silly, but kinda true. The Oscars do create quite a stir. Maybe not at the level of the Super Bowl, but close [...]

If you have not met me, I am Allison Coquet. As a product line manager, I am always seeking a better way to regularly communicate new features and provide helpful tips and tricks to our 8,000+ Core users without calling everyone directly. Although I would like to be able to contact each of you personally to chat about the latest news, the fact that many of you are distributed across the globe makes this impractical. (Plus, I might get cranky from lack of sleep after talking to thousands of you, and nobody should have to deal with that.) So I’ve decided to send a periodic newsletter instead [...]

At this year’s Preakness Stakes, a horse named Cloud Computing won the race in a major upset. I am not a huge racing enthusiast, but had I been betting on this race, I would have picked this horse based on its name alone. Yes, I am a little geeky, and I like the name. I would have ignored the stats and predictions. Most of my sports betting is for fun, so losing the few dollars wouldn’t have broken the bank. In hindsight, I regret not betting on this horse! [...]

My wife asked me to write an article on Millennials in the Workplace. The general definition of Millennials seems to be those born between 1980 and 2000. Now, I am in the habit of doing (almost) everything my wife asks of me, but why me? I doubt I have anything more to add to the myriad of opinions out there. Everyone has a position on the topic, and none of the research is conclusive. I have spent the last week having an internal debate in my head and thinking of reasons why I should not do this. I can’t justify turning down my wife […]

I’m spoiled. Like super-spoiled. I catch a rainbow trout the size of my ice-fishing boot and think it’s rather small.

But, I’m spoiled [..]

What I’m curious about is this: What change agents will be present at NAB?

The two follow-up questions I’ve been asked my entire life: “Is that a family name?”, and “Is your dad in the military?” See, my first name sounds somewhat normal but always needs repeating. Multiple times, and usually followed with a “sounds like” clue. The military question comes up after people learn that in 10th grade I was starting my 11th school. By that time, I had lived in four different states and 12 different houses[...]

  There once was a boy named Hadley Wrights (Had for short), the owner of a vast collection of baseball cards that he had meticulously collected, bought, and traded for over the years.

Unfortunately, no one other than Had, or the inside of his closet, could see his collections for years Had’s friends had begged him to show him his cards, to share the joy of seeing some of those iconic cards and even try to make some money by displaying them on special occasions.

I walk the stairs up to the office (I tend to be elevator adverse), and if I navigate the traffic just right, at times I am the first one to our "pod."  I switch the lights on if they aren't already, or, I leave them off if the sunlight is beaming in as it often does in Sunny Colorado.  I store a few things in the refrigerator, grab a glass of water, power on my laptop and walk downtown to get some local espresso [...]

I once had a boss who said ‘(users) can have it right, they can have it fast, or they can have it cheap but you can’t have all 3.’ We at Wazee Digital constantly strive to create a product that makes end-users lives easier at the right moment for the right cost. As part of our unicorn hunting skillset product managers should listen, watch, and listen some more to the end-users. Ask questions to understand and determine what the problem is that needs solving. Listen some more. Then collaborate with our teams and the user(s) to determine how best to create and gift the unicorn back to the user with a side of rainbow sprinkles.

In the video content business, searching through trillions of moments of video to find ‘tank’ can be just as time consuming and arduous to narrow down a set of results. Even in a large asset management system ‘tank’ could mean a container for fish or a military vehicle, two very different things (as you can see below) requiring further refinement.

I watch prediction articles come through from multiple sources and each year I have the same preamble thought:” Yeah, right…”  There’s always customers or specific events that shape the view of how the industry will change. The reality, is that we should be focused on the underlying changes that will help drive what occurs in 2017.

How do you define “simple” in two words or less? “No-brainer” comes first to my mind, my 11-year-old son says “not difficult,” my teenagers collectively say “basic” while my husband plays my little word game and mutters “not complicated.” As a product manager, I spend a significant amount of time trying to articulate features and […]

I returned from my deployment to Afghanistan in early 2013 and was greeted by friends and family at Denver International Airport. To this day, anytime I ride the train at DIA and take the escalator up to the main terminal, I relive that incredible feeling. I was a changed person, but for the most part I still felt like me. Sure there were a few days where anxiety ran high and I felt out of place, but that was normal, right?!

A couple of weeks ago, a group of us packed our bags once again for the IBC Show, held every September in Amsterdam at the RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre. From Film and Motion Picture – to Broadcast – to Playout Services – to Media Asset Management and everything in-between, there is no doubt that it’s advantageous for any company in the M&E market to place themselves amid the top industry influencers from around the world. The numbers aren’t quite in from this year’s show but we do know that there was a record attendance somewhere around 55,800 attendees over the course of the week – drawing in a global gathering and representing over 160 countries.

There is a myriad of moments that media organizations intend on capturing – plan for and execute from a variety of camera angles, delivery modes, and are consumed through multiple outlets.

Writing that title made me feel a little bit like soliciting for friends. You know… Like that movie, I Love You Man, with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. A ‘bromance’ if you will, where “friendless Peter Klaven (Rudd) goes on a series of man-dates to find a Best Man for his wedding (IMDB).

Sports and Live Events properties are creating more content than ever. The ease with which anybody can shoot, edit, and post video, in combination with the explosion of social media applications has had a significant impact on traditional broadcast and nobody is immune: ESPN has lost 13 million subscribers in 5 years (Nielsen). After years of inflated media rights deals for sports properties, the bubble has burst (or at the very least, experienced a significant and extended leak).

After 18 years it was a daunting move to a new company, new coworkers, and new clients. So why not take the safe path? There is a popular saying in the M&E industry: ‘Content is King’. What isn’t mentioned is that the content is often locked up in the dungeon like an ill-begotten prince after being paraded around once when it was a cute newborn never to be seen again. Just like that prince – there is hidden potential which needs to be properly prepped and made available to the masses for consumption. To have the opportunity to teach the industry how to unlock the revenue opportunities in their already existing content is an exciting and fascinating prospect. But first, I needed to meet my new coworkers, clients, and product.

I love interviews because you can ask pointed questions and you either get a very concise answer or you have an eyebrow raised on one person (typically the interviewer) and a tilted puppy dog head on the other (typically the interviewee). In the latter, you’ve most likely encountered the classic ‘failure to communicate.’ I know this reference from the song Civil War, by Guns N’ Roses, though some of you may know this from the classic 1967 prison drama, Cool Hand Luke – for the rest of you, you’re welcome.

By year 2000, the Internet was everywhere.
