Perlego offers unique POV technology for poker coverage

IKnowledge, a provider of automated data-driven TV graphics, has developed Perlego, an automated card recognition system that delivers on-screen captions instantly available with richer content and information.

Perlego was jointly developed with Sagentia, a technology management and product development company. The system's design uses an invisible infrared code coated onto each card in the pack. The coding allows the cards to be viewed through standard cameras and identified using the Perlego system. This allows the Perlego system to deliver on-screen graphics in an instant. The look and feel of the cards remains the same, allowing the players to play their natural game.

Being data-driven, the system can simultaneously contrast the live game play outputs with past-performance information about the players. This provides more creative and relevant editorial outputs and options.

The traditional approach to creating on-screen captions and information involves over-the-shoulder and/or under-table cameras, which can be both invasive and costly. They need an observer to first identify the cards and then to input the information. That can result in delay and errors in identifying the cards, inevitably making captions follow behind the commentary, which can compromise the live feel of the show.

With Perlego, producers have on-demand access to a new range of editorial content including expected plays, game forecasts, player-dominance measures, style profiles and head-to-head analyses.
