Live Graphic Systems teams with Grabyo for remote and cloud broadcast

The new Grabyo – LIGR workflow

Live Graphic Systems (LIGR), a provider of cloud broadcast graphics for sports leagues and broadcasters, and Grabyo, provider of a cloud platform for live video production and editing, have announced a new partnership to deliver the next generation of cloud sports broadcasting for sports leagues and broadcasters.

Designed to help those looking to streamline in-game production costs while maintaining professional standards and commercial integration opportunities, the official partnership is set to help democratise the availability of professional, data infused and commercially funded sports broadcasts, regardless of prior skill or knowledge.

LIGR, which currently supports customers like Gravity Media, Belgium Basketball, Football New South Wales, and Queensland Rugby League, has recently announced a $1 million investment round, led by Alston Elliot Graphics, provider of television sports graphics and data solutions to broadcasters and governing bodies, including the Cricket and Rugby World Cups.
The partnership brings together Grabyo’s cloud platform for real time clipping, live video production and editing, into LIGR’s best-in-breed live sports graphics platform including access to LIGR’s out-of-the-box professional graphics templates and database, sponsorship modules for easy upload, display and reporting of in-game commercial inventory.

The collaboration will also include integration into LIGR’s Auto graphics mode, which thorough this partnership can be used to completely automate an entire game’s broadcast graphics from the cloud, removing the requirement for a traditional broadcast graphics operator.

Combining this with Grabyo’s remote commentary and cloud vision mixing capability, broadcasters and sporting organisations will have a powerful, turn-key solution to produce professional broadcasts, without the traditional cost of production.

Luke McCoy, LIGR’s co-founder and CEO, said: “With Grabyo’s powerful cloud production capability, sports broadcasters and organisations will be able to utilise LIGR’s platform to produce a data enriched broadcast experience with world-class graphics in a streamlined, cost efficient production workflow. This next generation remote and cloud workflow is completely self-serve, out-of-the-box, and can be up and running in minutes, even for the most unskilled user. This is extremely exciting for sports leagues and broadcasters who have struggled to produce professional broadcasts with real-time match data and commercial integrations under limited budgets”

Together, Grabyo and LIGR will leverage new and existing relationships to offer a streamlined, cost efficient and sustainable sports broadcast solution for sports organisations and broadcasters of all sizes in a post COVID-19 world.

Gareth Capon, Grabyo CEO, added: “Today, sports audiences expect more from sports broadcasts. They expect an immersive viewing experience enriched by context and data. Our partnership with LIGR will allow sports organizations to deliver high-quality live content to digital audiences without the need for costly set up and inflexible hardware, which will ultimately help niche sports to grow their reach globally and engage existing fans with new live content.”
