Since 1998, SMT’s longstanding relationship with Turner Sports and its family of networks has meant enhanced broadcasts for NBA games, NASCAR races and supporting shows for the Academy Awards.
Whether it’s regular season games, the NBA playoff or All-Star weekend, fans of NBA TV and NBA on TNT are rewarded with SMT’s ticker technology that integrates dynamic graphics presentation and capabilities including automated live scoring, breaking news, live in-game statistics and custom movie play-outs, all powered by SMT’s SMART data engine.
SMT’s clock-and-score product showcases the most advanced graphical enhancements available in the industry for sophisticated animation packages, multiple team-specific animated elements and highly integrated packages that work together build excitement among basketball fans.
NASCAR fans are rewarded with SMT’s Autograph device, which generates the constant on-air crawl that informs viewers of running order, point standing, track status, driver information and comparisons and track maps.
Turner Broadcasting’s TNT Latin America Network (TNTLA), the most widely distributed pan-regional movie network in the Latin American Caribbean region, is seen in more than 11.4 million homes. The network is available in Spanish, Portuguese or English.
For the Academy Awards, TNTLA airs a one-hour show before the official ceremony. The show’s hosts use SMT’s GOTO Board to show movie trailers from the main categories, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress, as well as to display the fashion trends on the red carpet using SMT’s Drag-n-View technology.
