SportVU to Show Motion Tracking for Real-time Game Statistics and Analysis
August 2, 2007
SportVU will demonstrate the newest version of the SportVU motion tracking and image processing software with standard hardware to generate real-time data for digital, schematic representations of key stats and patterns for game analysis.
The live data from SportVU can produce team and personal stats as well as tactical analysis tools which can be broadcast over-the-air and in-stadium, offering a new platform for sponsorships and interactive advertising.
The SportVU output can also be adapted for viewing on the Web, gaming consoles and mobile handsets. SportVU's technology can also be used for automatic indexing of sports video.
SportVU technology is non-intrusive. In-stadium cameras are mounted in a single location to capture the action. SportVU applies pattern recognition and video motion tracking to produce the live, in-game data. Using off-the-shelf PCs increases reliability and reduces cost. The computers perform complex functions including automatic camera calibration, image segmentations, "blob" analysis, localization, and motion prediction. Applications for mobile, web and gaming consoles are currently in development.
SportVU will be in Stand 7.830.
