Demonstration of TVEyes' new broadcast search capability during Capital One’s “The Match: Champions for Charity” shows ability to more accurately calculate sponsorship impact.
Brands sponsor live sports events and athletes to make an impression on desired audiences. Until now sponsors have had limited ability to measure the complete impact and value of the airtime these events and celebrities receive beyond an original live event broadcast. The TVEyes logo detection and reporting capability was demonstrated for Under Armour’s sponsorship of Tom Brady during his appearance at Capital One’s “The Match: Champions for Charity,” held on May 24, 2020.
Over the course of the broadcast, the Under Armour logo was detected 62 times on Brady from shirt to shoes. Nielsen reported that 5.8 million people watched the golf event live on TNT, TBS, Tru TV, and HLN. TVEyes also tracked the term “Tom Brady” in its Media Monitoring Service network of more than 2,200 stations worldwide for 48 hours after the event. On Sunday, “Tom Brady” was mentioned 1,800 times and on Monday there were more than 5,600 mentions. Each mention shows the accompanying video and most of these show Brady’s “shot of the match” and the Under Armour logo on his shirt.
“Event sponsors pay millions of dollars to have their logos appear on signage, shirts and jerseys, chyrons and elsewhere during a live sports event, but these investments could only be justified based on primary event coverage, since until today, it’s been impossible to know how follow-on coverage contributes to the complete media value of the sponsorship,” said David Ives, founder and CEO of TVEyes.
Because of Covid-19 restrictions, large crowds won’t return to live sports any time soon but sponsors still want to place their brands in appropriate settings. Knowing the complete value of logo appearances within all broadcast coverage will help sponsors make better decisions. “Tracking in-event logos and post-event coverage across TVEyes’ Sports Network and Media Monitoring Service delivers stakeholders including brands, agencies, properties, and media, much more comprehensive reporting and accurate valuation of sponsorship signage than any other solution,” concluded Ives.
