PGA Tour partners with Red Hat, CDW on Linux media asset system

Filed under

Linux is a godsend for many, including those obsessed about the professional breakup of Tiger Woods and former caddie Steve Williams.

Recently, the PGA Tour Entertainment division implemented a new media asset management system based on Red Hat Linux and Viz Ardome that will allow users to find specific video clips in seconds, as opposed to hours, and also allows them to edit and move the clips much cheaper than analog video.

The PGA Tour — which stages hundreds of tournaments per year, releases player stats and scores and distributes media to news outlets including the Golf Channel, CBS, NBC and others — has been migrating its proprietary servers to Red Hat Enterprise Linux for some time, said Jonas Gredenhag, manger of datacenter operations for the PGA Tour.
