Southeastern Conference Extends Content Rights Agreement with XOS Digital
The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has extended their content licensing and copyright representation agreement with XOS Digital through 2019.
“The SEC has an extensive library that continues to grow with valuable content year after year,” said McCleary. “We are excited to extend this agreement, and we appreciate the opportunity to continue working with the SEC, Commissioner Mike Slive and the individual member institutions for content representation and the preservation of their digital media assets.”
XOS Digital works directly with SEC schools and partners to preserve all broadcasted events throughout each season. The long-term extension enables XOS to continue to archive, manage and represent the SEC digital library that lives in the XOS Vault digital asset management system.
XOS sold the SEC’s live digital broadcast rights to ESPN earlier this year, opening the door for ESPN’s launch of the SEC Network, which debuts in August 2014.
XOS now has more than 30,000 assets of historic SEC content digitally archived that dates back to the early 1970s. The SEC digital library includes photos and video of full games, highlights, press conferences and original programs.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with XOS Digital,” said SEC Assistant Commissioner Charlie Hussey. “XOS provides an important service in managing the conference’s copyright and content licensing.”
