Ryder Cup for Golf Channel

The Reality Check team was in Orlando for Ryder Cup week to work with the Golf Channel production and Creative Services team on all their Ryder Cup shows. For live coverage of the 2014 Ryder Cup, Golf Channel partnered with RCS to offer viewers an innovative, second-screen experience through “Alternate Shot.” “Alternate Shot” coverage complements NBC’s live weekend broadcast and provides audiences with a different view of the action. To deliver real-time tournament results, we developed customized broadcast solutions to incorporate player stats, scoreboards and match results into live on-screen graphics. We integrated social media into “Alternate Shot” by creating a customized middleware application that enables Golf Channel to view fan Tweets directly through Spredfast streams and select specific Tweets to air. Our customized graphics solutions for Golf Channel have also been used on the popular news program “Golf Central.”
