ChyronHego announced a pair of collaborations as IBC got underway on Friday. Its Tracab image-based tracking system has been chosen as one of the anchor technologies in Microsoft’s Sports Performance Platform, a Microsoft Garage project.
Announced earlier this year, Sports Performance Platform is a cloud-based sports analytics platform created to help professional sports teams, leagues and organisations find a way to help both athletes and teams make better, faster and more data-driven decisions.
Said Steve Fox, principal software engineer for Microsoft Corp: “ChyronHego’s Tracab not only collects and organises critical data in real time but makes it readily available for presentation so that coaches and teams can see and predict trends and patterns.”
ChyronHego is also introducing integration of its Silver robotic camera head with the RoboRail straight camera rail system from Mo-Sys Engineering.
The companies reported that, together, the products form a system for “no-delay camera tracking” of augmented reality graphics and virtual sets in news broadcasting – the latest development in ChyronHego’s Camio Universe for news workflows.
Johan Apel, president and CEO of ChyronHego, said: “On a news set, the RoboRail is the perfect alternative to larger robotic dolly/rail systems for AR applications.
Our partnership with Mo-Sys is a big step forward in our efforts to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive VR/AR systems for news production.”
