Pointstreak Announces Revolutionary Sports Video Highlight Product
Oct 06, 2010
Toronto, ON – Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. has announced a groundbreaking new technology that produces live video highlights from a sports game and instantly displays them online through Pointstreak’s GAME LIVE platform.
The technology is called " Pointstreak Live Publisher " and it combines Pointstreak’s industry leading real-time scoring software with recently acquired STEVA Sports Software’s technologies. The result is a seamless system that automatically captures a video clip at the game, indexes it to the relevant statistical event (e.g. goal), and then uploads it to the web or delivers it to a mobile device. The entire process takes place within moments of the event actually happening; all without any intervention by an onsite or offsite production crew. Fans can then view the video highlight through their computer or portable device, such as the iPhone, iPad or smartphones, moments after it occurred in the game. Pointstreak Live Publisher is currently available for the sports of hockey, lacrosse and baseball and is easily adopted by leagues or teams who record or stream game footage. Live Publisher will be made available for all sports in the near future.
The Northwoods League, a summer collegiate baseball league based out of Rochester, Minnesota with a history of innovation, was the first league to use Pointstreak Live Publisher during a late-season trial project.
While the rapid posting of a video clip without human intervention is the most obvious benefit of Pointstreak’s new product, the fact that every video clip is indexed and tied to various statistics (for example, a goal is tied to the player who scored it) opens up a whole new world of content delivery as well as being a powerful recruiting tool. For example, after a season of using Live Publisher, fans of a team, media or scouts could watch highlights specific to a player in every year of competition, or even watch a condensed game made up of seamless clips captured by Live Publisher.
Pointstreak plans to create an appropriate and affordable pricing and service model for the typical amateur/recreational sports organization. Mr. Mathurin adds "I can see Live Publisher being used by a Bantam A hockey club as much as I can see it being used by a pro team."
Given the compelling benefits and affordable price point, Mr. Secord is optimistic about the market’s reaction to Live Publisher.
