At launch, Lander University, based in Greenwood, South Carolina, will take advantage of this new integration. Thomas Holland, Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Media, said, “LIGR has been a great asset for us to help improve the quality of our video streams. The customer service has been amazing, helping us to learn the software and implement it into our broadcasts. Being able to have highlights automatically clipped has been a lifesaver, and the graphics for the streams have been great.”
Competing in the Peach Belt Conference, the university will broadcast live soccer, volleyball, field hockey, and basketball using LIGR Live and NCAA LiveStats integration, with in-game graphics and official data-powered automatic highlights.
Genius Sports has worked alongside the governing body since 2018 to develop NCAA LiveStats, the official tool for the collection, management and distribution of game statistics that is used by over 4,000 teams.
Oliver Wells, VP of Strategic Sports Partnerships at Genius Sports, said: “NCAA LiveStats continues to transform the college sports ecosystem, providing an incredible platform to unlock innovative products and experiences. We’re pleased to be working with LIGR, enhancing the streaming experience for fans across college sports.”
Instead of using the LIGR LiveScore app or an external data provider, users can now combine their existing NCAA LiveStats data feed with LIGR Live.
Tim Claus, LIGR Director of Sales for North America, said, “This integration makes it easy for colleges and schools across the country to get up and running with LIGR Live and continue using their existing stats solution. The ability to stream directly from LIGR Live to multiple destinations and distribute highlights to social channels is a real game-changer for college-level broadcasting.”
This agreement expands upon Genius Sports’ partnership with LIGR to integrate official FIBA LiveStats data from basketball leagues worldwide, including leagues such as the Women’s National Basketball League in Australia and the BNXT League, the national basketball competition across the Netherlands and Belgium.
LIGR is a new generation of live graphics and broadcast management software that offers TV-quality sports graphics without the need for hardware, designers, skilled graphics operators, or developers. Since 2016, we’ve been providing live graphics solutions to sporting organizations and their production companies. We have dramatically improved the quality of their live streams and helped them to monetize through powerful in-stream advertising. LIGR is built for broadcasts and live streams of all budgets, from one-off live games to simultaneous broadcasts and thousands of matches across an entire season.
