The Tour is happy to provide the first of two updates on our 2019 media plan. Please refer to the attached graphics for details. First, we will be improving the live broadcast through better video quality, more graphics, and expanded coverage. Expanded coverage includes showing FPO live, as well as including other action on the course (outside of lead cards) during both the FPO and MPO live broadcasts. In addition, we will be bringing the quality of FPO1 and MPO2 edited coverage to both the level and turn-around time that we have grown to love and expect for MPO1. The next day edited coverage will continue to be a high-quality production that proudly showcases the best athletes in our sport. Other notable additions include expanding the number of pros that offer their insights during the next day edited coverage as well as the ability to integrate players from MPO2 who challenge for the win into both the live broadcast and edited coverage.
Part 2 of the DGPT 2019 media plan will include more details on updated standards, information on assignments for our video teams, as well as media partners that we will be working with throughout the season. The Tour has high-quality video options in place for 2019 and will deliver, as it has in the past, excellent media for its events that help push the sport forward and provide opportunities for fans across the world to watch your favorite players compete.
Quality media is critical to the continued growth of disc golf. We will always focus on ensuring that the quality of the media created meets the growing expectations of our disc golf audience. This includes bringing on individuals who are experienced in disc golf media, filming, editing, motion graphics, and audio engineers. Additionally, we have created and defined opportunities for existing media teams to work with us at Pro Tour events so that they can continue to grow their brands and benefit from the amazing talent of our sport’s best athletes.
It’s an understatement to say that the world of disc golf media is changing rapidly and increasing in complexity as tours, media teams, events, manufacturers and sponsors all work to find solutions that work for everyone and result in high-quality coverage for the fans of the game. We continue negotiations with many valued partners and look forward to sharing part 2 of our media plan this offseason as we strive to deliver the best media experience possible for all involved in 2019.
