Pixellot, LIGR deliver new AI production offering with integrated cloud-based graphics
AI-automated sports video and analytics tech provider Pixellot and cloud-based live graphics platform provider LIGR have combined to offer an integrated solution for live broadcasting and streaming. The companies say the new automated solution will provide a new level of graphic visualisations which includes engaging live stats and promotional graphics.
The LIGR solution uses professional-quality graphic overlays and templates that are integrated automatically into the game. Little to no customization is required making it scalable and cost-effective and, together with Pixellot’s production and multi-featured OTT distribution, leagues and clubs can now engage fans and monetise live streams at a whole new level.
“It is great to be able to partner with Pixellot to provide their customers with automated, TV-quality live graphics,” says Luke McCoy, LIGR’s Co-founder and CEO. “Progressive sports leagues and broadcasters who use Pixellot to automate their sports production like the Football Association of Ireland, The Israel Basketball Association, and others can now add automated live graphics, real-time data integrations and advertising to their sport broadcasts. Now more than ever, limited budgets can deliver a richer viewing experience for fans on par with traditional broadcasting solutions, and as a result, improve monetisation opportunities.”
Pixellot technology solutions are serving a growing number of sports associations and leagues throughout the world including the FAI, the Scottish SPFL, the Korean, Mexican and Polish FA, and the IBBA. Other Pixellot-powered leagues in the US, Europe, and Latin America are in negotiations to implement the new solution including the Football Association of Ireland.
“Pixellot is always raising the bar when it comes to fan engagement and bringing added value to clubs and teams and their fans,” says Elad Manishviz, Pixellot CRO. “With the addition of automated high-level graphics and game info to our solution, the opportunities for greater commercialisation can now be realised. Our goal is to provide a truly immersive experience that will make sponsorships and additional revenue streams more feasible than ever.”
