SAMSUNG, PGA AND TURNER SPORTS ANNOUNCE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP APP –
FIRST-EVER EVENT-BASED GOLF EXPERIENCE APP FOR SAMSUNG SMART TVS
Through Partnership with the PGA of America and Turner Sports,
Consumer Electronics Innovator Samsung Launches Interactive App for Golf
Enthusiasts and On-site Experiential Area
Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning
innovator in consumer electronics, unveiled its PGA Championship TV
App, the first-ever event-based golf experience app designed for the
Samsung Smart TV platform, offering a new and interactive way for golf
fans to immerse themselves in the PGA Championship (August 7-10).
Available on 2013 and 2014 Samsung Smart TVs, the new app developed in
collaboration with Turner Sports, gives viewers access to not only
scoring, player and course information, but also exclusive
behind-the-scenes and tournament-related content from the PGA
Championship. The PGA Championship app is also available on select
Samsung Galaxy mobile devices for those who want to stay up-to-date with
the latest action on the go.
From the very first shot at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky,
the PGA Championship TV App will bring the action right to user’s
homes. Consumers will be able to dive deeper into the competition from
the comfort of their couches using their Samsung Smart TV and Galaxy
mobile devices for exclusive content, including, but not limited to:
Broadcast Mode, which allows users to complement and customize
their PGA Championship viewing experience. While watching the
championship (on TNT and CBS), Broadcast Mode will let users toggle
between alternate LIVE video feeds (i.e. Par 3 Cam and Marquee Group),
launch an interactive leaderboard, and keep tabs on their favorite
golfers. It is the first time this technology has been offered in the
sport of golf.
Pick the Hole Location Challenge Hosted by Jack Nicklaus, which
lets users cast a live vote for the hole location to be used on No. 16
during the final round of the PGA Championship on August 10. For the
first time during a major sporting event, fans using Samsung Smart TVs
can vote in real time using interactive content triggered during the
live broadcast from August 7-9, using their Samsung TV remote. Voting
will conclude August 9 at 7 p.m. EDT.
Multiscreen Functionality, which allows consumers to seamlessly
pair their TV and mobile devices through the companion Android app to
create a robust golf experience. They can view the live championship
action and exclusive content on their mobile devices, share the action
with family and friends by casting live video streams, custom
leaderboards and event highlights to their 2014 Smart TVs.
“Samsung is thrilled to partner with the PGA and bring the sport of golf
to life for Samsung Smart TV and mobile device users,” says Joe
Stinziano, Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics America.
“Whether using a tablet, mobile phone or one of our latest Smart TVs, we
continue to look at ways to elevate the sports viewing experience at
home. The PGA Championship App is a great example of how Samsung
can connect its products across categories to bring golf fans closer to
the game they love.”
During the PGA Championship, Samsung will be on-site at the championship
with a massive experiential area. Featuring 23 Curved UHD TVs, as well
as the latest Galaxy Tab S devices and NX compact system cameras, the
Samsung Experience allows attendees to catch up on the action, share
moments from the day’s events and even recharge not only themselves but
also their devices. In particular, they will be able to watch live
footage of the championship on a super-sized, crystal-clear, 16-foot
curved display consisting of nine 65” Curved UHD TVs or participate in a
“Perfect Shot Challenge,” rallying golf fans to take a ‘chip shot’ from
a custom-designed 13th hole bunker.
“The innovations from Samsung and Turner Sports in conjunction with the
2014 PGA Championship, represent the next generation of consumer
electronics,” says PGA CEO Pete Bevacqua. Whether on site, at home, or
on their mobile devices, fans will be connected to our championships
unlike ever before.”
As part of the expanded “The Curve Changes Everything” ad campaign,
Samsung will feature TV spots during the PGA Championship telecast, and
highlight the top play during each day of competition with the “Samsung
Shot of the Day.” In addition, the campaign will feature a print
presence in the August issue of Golf Digest, digital components
on PGA.com and Yahoo! Sports’ Golf Channel, and
out-of-home (OOH) components.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
