NEW YORK, New York (April 15, 2014)
stainless.ai, developer of real-time advanced video tagging and management technology today announces that Bloomberg Sports (BSports) has selected stainless.ai’s hapn.in™ Sports platform as the video metadata solution for BSports’ premier professional product. Leveraging stainless.ai’s advanced sports video technology, BSports will revolutionize the way data and video are acquired, analyzed and presented to baseball video coordinators, coaches and players. BSports will provide raw data and sophisticated analysis to teams, linked to multi-angle game video, at the click of a mouse.
“There is an epidemic failure within the game to understand what is really happening,” says Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in the 2011 film “Moneyball.” Together with stainless.ai, BSports flagship professional analytics product aims to provide a world-class, next-generation data analytics product to address that problem. Professional sports coaches, video coordinators and analysts will use this product to tie advanced statistical analysis of their team’s performance to game video like never before. “We are thrilled to be a part of this product,” says Daniel Stieglitz, CEO of stainless.ai, “we believe this technology will give professional sports teams the tools they need to take their teams to the next level. It will change the way the games are played and the way we enjoy them.”
“This MLB season we are rolling out the most cutting-edge video tagging solution to date, ingesting and clipping multiple feeds from a baseball stadium in real-time and distributing it across our web-based and mobile analytics platform.” says Bill Squadron, President of Bloomberg Sports. “The partnership with stainless.ai allows us to marry the video with advanced data so that the team can play back video according to their unique metrics, and the interface provides ease-of-use that makes a video coordinator’s workflow more efficient.”
