Linius (LNU) has partnered with sporting company International Management Group (IMG) to provide its sports solution, Whizzard, to IMG’s digital archive platform, IMG Replay.

IMG Replay manages and commercialises the video archives for some of the world’s leading sporting organisations, including the Premier League, World Rugby, Wimbledon, the R&A, the International Skating Union (ISU) and the Professional Golf Association of America (PGA).

The company’s product, Linius Whizzard, will be embedded within the IMG Replay service, virtualising the entire archive of nearly 50,000 hours to make it more searchable and useable.

LNU said it was the only cloud-based solution that unlocked the value of video archives with immersive and personalised viewer experiences via its Linius Video Services (LVS) platform.

“This is a significant validation of the power of our Linius Video Services platform and the value unlocked by our Whizzard product for one of the world’s largest sports and media companies,” LNU CEO James Brennan said.

“Whizzard is driving accelerated commercial momentum, with Linius adding four new clients in the last five months, leading to record billings in Q2 FY2023 that are expected
to double in Q3.”

The IMG Replay contract is LNU’s largest to date.

The agreement is for an initial two-year term and includes a fixed setup fee and monthly
license subscription.

LNU shares closed at 0.3 cents on Thursday afternoon.
