Learn about event assets, and how they can be configured to display across your apps.*
Assets are your catalog of video and non-video content. Each asset contains metadata (including images), offers, and an internal reference to a video file if applicable.
AXIS supports multiple asset types that display in rows in the Reference Apps. How they display will depend on the available metadata, the selected row type and how it's configured, and the user’s app.
What are Event assets?
Events are a sport-specific asset, usually related to a competition asset that the event forms part of, and which itself is related to a confederation asset. Depending on the sport, your event assets could represent matches, games, races, and so on. In Presentation Manager, the event asset is represented by the icon.
Events will often be related to a stage asset, for example, matches in a football tournament that has qualifying rounds, group stages, finals, etc. Your event assets may also be standalone, for example, a boxing match or a one-day race.
Event asset metadata
Capture metadata for your event asset to display across your apps. Event metadata could include:
- the title or name of the event
- the sport it relates to
- the country where it takes place
- a short or detailed description of the event
- the start and end date/time
- the round of the competition it is in
For details of all the fields available for this asset type, including the event location, venue, and duration, see our article on asset metadata.
Showing events in rows
The example below shows a sample event header row, displaying key metadata as well as additional features including the Watch and Bookmark buttons. These allow a user to, respectively, watch an event live (if available) or save it for future reference.
For more information on this and other row types available for showcasing your event assets, see our article on pages and supported rows.
Event detail page
Use the item detail page template to create pages for your assets, which users are taken to when they select the asset from anywhere in their app.
You can use the detail page to display further event information and related content. Use specific row types to let users select a particular stage to watch live or completed events, or use list rules to surface and highlight your related assets, such as participating teams or key players (personas). Users can then choose to follow these assets and link to their detail pages for more information.
Take a look at our event detail page article to learn more, and to see examples of how the page is presented across the different Reference Apps. Our cheat sheet has some great tips to get you started with setting up a page for your sports assets.
