Live Graphic Systems (LIGR), a broadcast graphics startup out of Sydney, Australia that uses real-time sports data to automate graphics for live video, has become a member of Sportradar’s startup accelerator program Acceleradar. Having access to Sportradar’s vast and comprehensive sports data, and collection of live API’s, will allow LIGR to expand its technology and create exciting and innovative products in the sports market.
“Working with Sportradar, a global leader in sports technology, while having access to their data will allow our team to dive deep into the possibilities of using detailed and real-time sports data to completely automate the graphics workflow of a sports broadcast, including live streams to social channels and OTT. Combined, our technology workflow helps sports leagues commercialise their broadcasts by seamlessly adding brands into our automated templates and creating professional broadcasts in a way that is not possible using traditional broadcast methods”, said Luke McCoy, Live Graphic Systems CEO.
As a member of the Acceleradar program, Live Graphic Systems will be granted access to Sportradar data for 6 months. The data will help Live Graphic Systems to expand its partnerships into global sports leagues.
“Over a decade of AV and sports data experience has enabled us to build a top notch end-to-end OTT solution, with innovation playing a key role in the way we combine video and data,’’ said Felix Blank, Director of Digital Platforms at Sportradar. ‘’We are committed to supporting the growth of innovation with initiatives to create partnerships with start-ups where we can work together to shape the future of sports consumption and we see LIGR's solution as a perfect complement to our OTT value proposition. It’s not only about allowing Acceleradar start-ups to use our data without limits, but also about exploring opportunities where we can mutually develop features that provide real user benefit.’’
Live Graphic Systems technology has recently been deployed across organisations such as the National Basketball League, Football NSW, Basketball NSW, the South Australian AFL and Cricket Australia.
