English Premier League Extends ChyronHego Partnership

News Image
The English Premier League has announced that it has extended its contract to use ChyronHego's TRACAB image-based tracking system across the entire league for a further three years.

TRACAB will continue to deliver real-time ball- and player-tracking data and enable insight into match play for all 20 Premier League clubs over the 2016/2017, 2017/2018, and 2018/2019 seasons, at 380 matches per season.

The Premier League has deployed TRACAB in all 20 of its competing teams' arenas, and the new contract includes a hardware upgrade. At 25 times per second, TRACAB uses advanced image-processing technology to determine the position of all moving objects in the field of play including players, referees, assistant referees, and the ball.

The result is a live data feed that contains all the X, Y, and Z positional coordinates for each identified object. The data can then be streamed in an open format to a multitude of visualization platforms, such as broadcast graphics systems and online or mobile platforms, and can also be used to prepare sets of performance statistics for sports analysts.

Jon Roberts, UK Managing Director, ChyronHego, said: "The Premier League has been using TRACAB to bring a new dimension to its live football coverage since 2013. The League's decision to extend our partnership for another three years is a great testament to TRACAB's unmatched power and advanced capabilities. The choice of major sports organizations throughout Europe and the Americas, TRACAB is the most advanced camera-based player- and ball-tracking system on the market."

David Eccles, Sports Performance Director, ChyronHego, added: "TRACAB's real-time data collection technology spans almost a decade of continued product development and is field-proven in some of the world's most demanding live sports environments. As a quick and efficient method for collecting critical sports-related data, TRACAB opens up many new possibilities for empowering sports clubs and delivering a more engaging experience to viewers."
