INDYCAR races ahead with Imagen to serve international media & broadcast partners
INDYCAR is the Indianapolis-based governing body for North America’s auto racing series known as the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. The series features an international field of drivers – including six-time series champion Scott Dixon, two-time series champion Will Power and four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves – who compete on ovals, road courses and temporary street courses.
The season consists of 17 races in North America and is highlighted by the historic Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. The NTT INDYCAR SERIES is owned by Penske Entertainment, a division of Penske Corporation, a global transportation, automotive and motorsports leader.
The INDYCAR governing body needed a new content management solution for two key reasons - firstly to help broadcast partners access video and still images easily and quickly, and secondly to resolve a security issue experienced with the older system.
“We wanted to get it up and running as quickly as possible. But we also had high expectations of how it would look and feel simply because we had friends at other sports leagues like MLS that were using the [Imagen] platform.”KATE DAVIS, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS, INDYCAR
The security and robustness of the Imagen Pro platform was therefore of crucial importance to the INDYCAR team. Imagen is ISO 27001 certified, storing all assets securely in the cloud, with video streaming and all file downloads handled via secure HTTPS encryption and TLS1.2/TLS1.3 connections.
