Skyview to Provide New Broadcast System for New York Jets

October 26, 2012

The National Football League’s (NFL) New York Jets and Skyview Networks announced they have entered into a new multi-year broadcast service agreement.

Skyview, prostate an integrated professional sports distribution company specializing in play-by-play broadcast systems, will provide its F.A.S.T. Inventory Management System and Live Read Logging Service to the New York Jets. The systems will manage all aspects of radio avails, including on air mentions, and provide advertisers proof of performance to streamline the invoicing process.

“In light of the increased demand on our media inventory, it became apparent that the Skyview system was necessary to help manage our continued growth,” said Jets senior vice president, Marc Riccio. “Skyview’s expertise so far has proven to be just what we needed to expand our media business.”

The F.A.S.T. System is uniquely tailored to the non-linear format of the play-by-play broadcast and accommodates all components of scheduling, reporting and invoicing of advertising clients. Skyview Networks will also provide its Live Read Logging Service to capture and catalogue the New York Jets’ on-air advertiser mentions. With this system, the franchise has full access to a personalized web database of time stamped air checks that is fully searchable by client name, feature name or date range. These air checks can be played, downloaded and exported, allowing the franchise to bill live reads through the affidavit and invoicing process.

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in the New York market with this established and iconic brand,” said Ken Thiele, President of Skyview Networks. “With our systems, the Jets will experience a flexible and time saving solution to play-by-play inventory management. We strive to build a solid relationship with our partners and we look forward to collaborating on future play-by-play broadcast solutions for the franchise.”
