Case study - Melbourne Football Club (MFC)
The Melbourne Football Club was founded in 1858 and is widely considered to be the world's oldest sporting club.
Today it also uses some of the latest in Managed IT solutions to help with reviewing of game day footage.
Previously the club had challenges storing some 200+ hours per week of high definition video, used for post-game analysis. The video couldn’t be compressed without compromising quality, which meant MFC essentially had enterprise level storage requirements without enterprise level budgets.
CSG helped to scope, implement and deliver a robust server storage solution that was hardware and cloud platform agnostic which has dramatically speed up the whole review process, saving time and increasing stakeholder satisfaction around the club.
Coming on board as a Major Partner sponsor of the club in 2017 CSG is involved with Melbourne’s AFL and AFLW teams, having seen the club progress to the preliminary final in 2018.
Together with the successful implementation of this solution, today CSG also provides a Managed Print solution, together with laptops and docking stations for the club.
