USA Table Tennis (USATT) CEO Gordon Kaye announced today a new partnership with Triode Media Group Ltd (Lancaster, PA) to provide an enhanced online viewer experience for the 2017 USATT US Open.  The partnership will leverage IBM’s Cloud Video Streaming Manager to stream matches and provide a simplified video-on-demand platform that will make it easier for viewers to find archived individual matches.

Beginning with the ITTF-North America 2018 Youth Olympic Games Qualification Tournament on Sunday, December 17 (3:00pm ET), matches will be streamed live from two tables on USATT’s website, www.usatt.org, and through Facebook Live on USATT’s Facebook pages.  Each individual match on Tables 1 and 2 will be streamed live and then immediately be available as a video on demand. Viewers can watch these on-demand matches at a convenient time and share these matches on social media.

This service is provided by Triode Media Group Ltd., the ITTF North America video partner. According to Evan Scudner, Executive Producer, "Triode works to provide customized solutions to meet the content needs of our partners.  For the US Open, we will be using IBM Cloud Video Streaming Manager, the most scalable and reliable global streaming video platform."

Triode will also package the Men's and Women's Final into two, one-hour programs that will air on the Tennis Channel on December 29, 2017.  "These efforts are being made to expand the viewing audience for table tennis", according to Gordon Kaye, USATT CEO, "and to enhance the experience of our players by giving them the means to share their match with their own network of friends."
