Chicago, London, Tel Aviv, August 04, 2016 – Prozone Sports Ltd, a STATS company that has pioneered sports performance analysis since 1995, have partnered with Pixellot to provide automated video production technology to elite football clubs globally. Following seamless integration of the two cutting-edge technologies, the solution has already been approved by a number of clubs in the English Premier League and will be made available to other leagues throughout the 2016/17 season.
STATS LLC acquired Prozone in May 2015 to form the world’s leading sports technology, data and content company. Combining STATS SportVU® real-time player tracking technology with Prozone’s domain expertise in performance analysis and Pixellot’s panoramic video technology will provide coaching teams the ultimate analysis tool to visualize any action on the field both in real-time and post-match.
With Pixellot’s automated multi-camera system covering the entire playing field in 4K panoramic quality, coaches can now analyze specific players or action without being restricted to traditional broadcast camera outputs that focus only on the ball. Ultra-high definition 4K footage is delivered in real-time to the remote production suite where video coordinators can define and preset camera outputs and player cams, zoom into particular areas, create replays and cut game and player clips during the game for immediate analysis.
Remote Production Suite offers a variety of views and angles, preset cameras and graphic tools. Click here
“The Pixellot production solution is redefining the way sports teams work with video,” said Ryan Paterson, STATS Managing Director, EMEA and APAC. “The feedback we receive from the Premier League clubs highlights the benefits of our visualized analysis suite for coaching teams, and we are already in discussions with other clubs, leagues and federations globally that are interested in this innovative technology.”
Alon Werber, CEO at Pixellot, adds: “Performance analysis is probably one of the main areas of transformation in sports these days. The combination of Prozone’s performance expertise, STATS SportVU real-time tracking and analysis capabilities, and our panoramic video solution enables coaches to evaluate players, teams and games, consistently and accurately as never before.”
The availability of high-quality video and performance data through a single interface can transform the way analysis is prepared and presented. This integrated solution enables coaches to enrich the desired video feed with telestration and captions, and to attach graphics to players for enhanced visual presentation.
