Furthermore it is the only Women’s Major in continental Europe, and became an LPGA event in 2009. The tournament is internationally known for crowning leading international female golf players for over 25 years.
In preparation for the 2019 Evian Championship organized by Danone, the event’s Organization Committee was looking for a way to promote social media engagement related to the event. Pre, live and post-event promotion and aggregation of media was top-priority.
After teaming with Newsbridge in July 2019, the Evian Championship team successfully accomplished their initial objective of boosting social media engagement. They did this via aggregating and sharing instantaneous tournament highlights generated by the Newsbridge platform’s live video clipping feature.
To achieve this, the platform was connected to the international signal, already provided to TV Channels and Network in parallel. Several times a day, a motion designer extracted multiple relevant sequences on the Newsbridge platform.
The team added mini featurettes with 3D rendering afterward, widely inspired by popular internet memes.
Benjamin Tur, Communication Officer at Danone:
“Working with Newsbridge was very smooth and efficient. The ingest and live video clipping from the world feed into the platform was seamless.”
Once shared on social media, these easily generated clips acquired 7 times more audience and engagement than other social publications made during the same time period for the tournament.
In the end, the team achieved their objective of boosting audience engagement - it went above and beyond expectations. This was due to the Newsbridge platform's live video clipping functionality, resulting in an “A” Game outcome.
