Body Copy: AI sports production technology specialist Pixellot and live sports production leader NEP Switzerland (part of the NEP Group) have confirmed a new partnership to bring AI production technology to multiple Swiss sports leagues.
NEP Switzerland acquired several Pixellot Prime systems after conducting multiple successful tests on first league soccer and handball games in Zurich. The company plans to purchase an additional 20 Pixellot Prime systems by the year’s end.
Pixellot Prime delivers full HD 1080p broadcasts at native 50-60 FPS and includes AI-Automated game highlights and graphics. Pixellot Prime can be augmented with additional camera angles, instant replays, and a live or remote commentator.
Alon Werber, CEO of Pixellot, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with one of the world’s top providers of broadcast services and media solutions. Adding AI-Automated technology to sports production opens up a plethora of opportunities for covering sporting events that were never covered before.
“The field-proven efficiencies of innovative AI technology enrich the variety and quantity of sports content produced,” he continued. “This will result in many more hours of live and on-demand sports than ever before for Swiss viewers.”
