Video

propage-scouting
Bloomberg Sports has developed an integrated video solution that includes a logger capable of capturing any user-defined data and pair it with the events in the game captured on video, down to the pitch-by-pitch or second-by-second level, with sophisticated frame-by-frame playback controls on the web. Portable, rugged-ized hardware for use on the road allows video coordinators to streamline their travel workflow tremendously, and expand their ability to derive value from video tagging with annotations and telestrations onto video. Ingestion of multi-angle, HD video from a variety of sources or directly from the arena, ballpark, or stadium, with real-time encoding, means that video clips can be streamed over the internet in virtually real-time.

Video solutions for the iPad are tailored to each player so they see only the video relevant to them, on the road, on a plane, etc, with the ability to download video clips locally to the device.

Broadcast Plugin

propage-scouting
The Bloomberg Sports Duet Lyric plug-in ties Bloomberg Sports Data with Broadcast shells to be displayed graphically on air. The plug-in provides the broadcast crew the ability to display advanced analytics on air at the click of a button. The plug-in is customizable for all sports and takes a mere 3 minutes to access the full archive of Bloomberg Sports custom statistics.

“The most interesting component with Bloomberg is the predictive-stats feature. We are fascinated by how those stats can help us and our viewers get a better insight into the game within the game. It allows us to break things down on a pitch-by-pitch basis: what a pitcher or batter might do on the next pitch and so on. We think there is a lot of interesting data there that can help enrich our broadcast.” – Bill Roberts, VP of content, DIRECTV Sports Networks.
