Sports data and AI technology company Stats Perform has joined forces with wTVision, a provider of real-time graphics, augmented reality solutions and playout automation, in a venture that seeks to deliver the “next generation of broadcast integration with best-in-class sports data and tracking solutions”.
The agreement solidifies over a decade of projects between Stats Perform and wTVision, whose current clients including Portuguese pay-television broadcaster Sport TV, the Confederation of African Football and international pay-television broadcaster beIN Sports.
