Signiant Enables Fast and Reliable Transfers of Digital Content to Connect Stand-Out High School Athletes with College Recruiters Around the Country
BURLINGTON, MA (June 9, 2011) — Signiant today announced that XOS Digital, a leading provider of digital media services to collegiate and professional sports organizations, has built its XOS PlayerOnDemand™ scouting system around the Signiant content supply chain management solution. The Signiant technology provides a fast, secure, and reliable platform for XOS Digital to capture video of high school football players in action and other related content, and then distribute the content to college sports recruiters.
“Time is of the essence for college recruiters seeking to sign promising new athletes before rival schools. With Signiant, we’re able to offer our collegiate sports customers a vital service that shaves significant time off the process of identifying, evaluating, and recruiting high school talent from all over the country,” said Gary Howard, general manager, recruiting and scouting services, XOS Digital. “Since Signiant facilitates transfers of large files over an IP network, a process that once took several days and required shipment of physical media, now takes only a few hours.”
The Signiant system enables field capture and distribution of content as well as support for XOS Digital’s video service connecting standout high school football players with college recruiting scouts. XOS Digital has deployed video crews in more than 1,500 locations to film high school football games.
In addition, XOS uses Signiant’s Media Exchange solution to distribute software, database, and media upgrades out to customers. “Signiant is an important member of our internal support team, and its ease of use and flexibility have made it a critical tool for every member of our staff,” said Howard.
“XOS Digital is a stand-out example of how Signiant can power any type of business requiring fast, seamless, and secure transfer of digital content,” said Tony Lapolito, vice president of product management and marketing for Signiant. “As a loyal Signiant customer for more than three years, XOS Digital is applying our technology in very innovative ways to add value to its rich set of digital media offerings for sports organizations.”
