December 17, 2019

Pixellot, a provider of AI-Automated sports production, has announced its acquisition of VidSwap, a sports video analysis and editing platform for multiple types of athletic events.

The introduction of VidSwap’s game analysis and video breakdown capabilities augments Pixellot’s automated production service and provides teams with additional layers of data and video analysis. Pixellot’s new end-to-end solution will consist of AI-automated game production and a full OTT solution for live and on-demand viewing. For coaching and analysis professionals the company will now offer improved tools featuring immediate game breakdowns and analysis, a dedicated mobile app for practices, and individual team and player data. Bringing all these services together will create an easier workflow for coaches and administrators as well as deliver time and cost efficiencies.

“We are thrilled to welcome VidSwap, a company with proven technology and extensive, long-term relationships with colleges and professional clubs to the Pixellot family” says Alon Werber, CEO of Pixellot. “Organisations and coaches around the world will benefit from utilising these new tools and video capabilities for scouting, recruiting and analysis purposes. By providing a straightforward online service, we’re creating an affordable and flexible solution needed to improve athletic performance and share information. In addition, VidSwap’s data will also feed back into Pixellot’s AI platform and continually improve our AI-driven automatic production and data extraction capabilities and accuracy.”

“Our partners, from youth to the pros, now have the opportunity to access even more features and tools with their Pixellot systems,” says David Shapiro, President of North America at Pixellot. “The combination of being able to utilise video streaming for viewing, coaching, and analysis, fully automated in one platform, is going to be a game changer for the industry. Among other target segments, through our partnership with NFHS Network we plan to give thousands of high schools the opportunity to use their existing video for player development, helping athletes and teams achieve their goals.”
