LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stats Perform, the SportsTech leader in data and AI technology, and LIGR - Live Graphic Systems, a leader in cloud broadcast graphics for sports leagues and broadcasters of all levels, today announced a new partnership to deliver rich statistical broadcast graphics for sports leagues and broadcasters looking to streamline production costs while maintaining professional standards and commercial integrations.
The official partnership highlights more than three years of cooperative projects between Stats Perform and LIGR, including customers like Gravity Media, Cricket Australia, Football NSW, and Queensland Rugby League. The partnership brings together Stats Perform’s industry-leading event and tracking data and deep storytelling expertise with LIGR’s best-in-breed live sports broadcast graphics platform, including access to LIGR’s out-of-the-box professional graphics templates and their industry-leading sponsorship modules for easy upload, display and reporting of commercial in-game inventory. Joint customers can also use LIGR’s automatic graphics mode, which uses Stats Perform’s data to completely automate an entire game’s broadcast graphics, removing the requirement for a traditional broadcast graphics operator, all rendering in the cloud, and optimal for a large volume of remote productions.
Luke McCoy, LIGR’s Co-founder and CEO said, “With Stats Perform’s world-class data and advanced storytelling resources, sports broadcasters and leagues will be able to utilise LIGR’s platform to produce large volumes of data-enriched broadcast experiences with world-class graphics in a streamlined, cost-efficient production workflow. This next generation workflow is self-serve, in the cloud, out-of-the-box, and 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 data integrations under limited budgets, away from traditional broadcasting solutions. Now more than ever, cloud-based and automated, data-driven workflows will be a key driver for the sports and broadcast industry to move forward while live sports content is still king.”
LIGR is part of Stats Perform’s Sports Partners Intelligence Network (SPIN) which combines Stats Perform’s leading sports intelligence offerings (data, insights, analytics, machine learning, computer vision and AI), with top partners to develop complementary solutions that support joint customers and the sports market. Together, Stats Perform and LIGR will leverage new and existing relationships to offer a streamlined, cost-efficient and sustainable sports graphics package for providers.
Stats Perform Senior Vice President of Global Partners and Channels Wayne Ford said, “Sports broadcasts today rely on slick, fast, informative graphics that drive the game’s narrative, while breaking down vast data points and analytics in a visually appealing way that fans can digest. LIGR’s intelligent, out-of-the-box broadcast graphic tools integrate Stats Perform’s advanced event and tracking data to deliver a sleek, easy-to-use tool, that also makes overlaying advertising easy, generating new sponsorship revenue for our customers. We are excited to be working with LIGR to offer new tools to power any broadcast.”
