Premier League Selects ChyronHego's TRACAB(TM) Real-Time Player Tracking
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 09/10/13 -- ChyronHego
(NASDAQ: CHYR) today announced that the Premier League has chosen the
company's award-winning TRACAB(TM) image-based tracking system to
deliver real-time player tracking data across the entire league. This
will span all 380 matches per season over a three year term. The
TRACAB systems -- deployed at the start of the 2013/2014 season --
are installed in all 20 stadia of the competing teams in the Barclays
Premier League and produce 3D positional data and live speeds for all
players, referees, assistant referees, and the ball.
"We are delighted to be working with the Premier League in helping to
enhance its live football coverage," said President and COO of
ChyronHego, Johan Apel. "Our TRACAB technology offers a quick and
efficient method for collecting critical sports-related data -- and
the end result is a more engaging experience for viewers and highly
valuable data for many other interested parties."
TRACAB uses advanced image-processing technology to determine the
position of all moving objects in the field of play at a rapid 25
times per second. The result is a live data feed that contains all
the X, Y and Z positional coordinates for each identified object. The
data can then be streamed in an open format to a multitude of
visualization platforms such as broadcast graphics systems, online
and mobile platforms, and can also be used to prepare comprehensive
sets of performance statistics for sports analysts. TRACAB's true,
real-time data collection opens up many new possibilities for clubs,
media rights holders and fans.
ChyronHego will demonstrate its player tracking technology along with
its full line-up of broadcast graphics and sports analysis solutions
at IBC2013, September 13 -17 at Stand, 7.D11.
