On July 1, CANAL+ organises a boxing show in Evian-Lès-Bains. Partnering with EUROMEDIA and PIQ teams, NETCOSPORTS brings its new solution developed for broadcasters, allowing CANAL+ subscribers to live boxing matches as never before.
Boxers are equipped with PIQ sensors placed in their gloves which record blows, speed of the strikes and power of the impacts. These data are collected with Netco’s solution which then synchronizes them with the right images and put them into a graphical interface to make them intelligible. Production teams can then pick the most relevant data and images to illustrate a particular action during replays or after a fight.
This new real-time solution is a little revolution in the industry and we expect it to grow exponentially as it will bring new ways for broadcasters to engage with their audience and to provide them a unique and innovative experience.
