Pixellot’s Sports Broadcasting Coverage is a Game Changer
When the Sports Action Flies Thick & Fast Pixellot Captures it in Real Time
The competitive sporting arena is a powder keg of explosive action waiting to erupt. Sports fans, managers, and coaches rely on HD footage for full coverage of the action. This was the erstwhile domain of sports broadcasters and major news networks, oftentimes at tremendous cost. Now, an Israeli high-tech enterprise named Pixellot has dropped anchor in this realm, and it's already a total game changer. Thanks to a combination of AI-powered technology, sophisticated video cameras are capable of thinking and behaving like highly-trained human beings, with computer precision in sports broadcasting coverage.
The Pixellot HD cameras are calibrated during the camera installation phase, with full identification of the boundaries of the court and the field of play. This calibration is sacrosanct; it allows the Deep Learning technology to perfectly understand the gameplay by tracking and focusing on the players who are actually participating, not the fans or coaches on the sidelines. Thanks to Deep Learning technology, a powerful algorithm runs in less than 10 m/s per frame, to ensure the stability of the system.

In ball games, Deep Learning must be able to clearly identify the players and the ball. This proves to be a challenging undertaking, given that the ball can be on the ground, in the air, or off the field of play at times. The complexity ratchets up a notch by dint of the spectators, benched players, coaches, sports broadcasters, and onlookers. The Pixellot Deep Learning construct assesses multiple components simultaneously, allowing for real-time coverage of sports action on every play. With a lead time of up to 4 seconds, the cameras must be able to anticipate where the ball will be ahead of time, allowing for continuity of video coverage.
Accuracy can be bolstered by adding additional cameras onto the field of play, allowing them to function in harmony. The beauty of AI technology and Deep Learning is that this form of knowledge-based awareness improves with every iteration, rendering, and experience. Akin to an encyclopedia being populated with questions and answers, the more content there is, the more comprehensive the coverage. The Pixellot systems improve with time, permitting higher levels of accuracy on every play. AI has shown tremendous promise and there is no limit to its powerful applications in the wide world of sports with AI-automated sports production.
