Chyron adds artificial intelligence to its replay tool for live sports

Paint 9.3 includes both a new automatic pitch calibration and automatic player tracking tools

Chyron is launching the first AI-enhanced release of its Paint, the company’s illustrated analysis and replay tool for live sports.

Paint 9.3 includes new automatic pitch calibration for football and automatic player tracking tools for both football and American Football, which represents the first AI-driven tools within the tool.

According to the company, the new AI algorithms save operators valuable time in generating sports clips, allowing them to focus on creating dynamic narratives around a match.

An operator loading a clip for telestration can now automatically calibrate the dimensions of the pitch, then begin creating perspective-accurate 3D telestration effects right away, said Chyron.

Paint’s new AI-enabled player tracking algorithm can also automatically track and determine the path of players in a clip, so operators can quickly bind tracked effects such as spotlights and cursors to any and all players. Users can trigger these features with a single button push in the UI or set them to be performed automatically as clips are imported into the system, said the company.

“Paint 9.3 represents an industry-first application of AI algorithms to sport replay and telestration, and we’re building great new features and capabilities on the power of these new enhancements,” said Chyron CEO Ariel Garcia.

“Our internal AI development team has been exploring the practical and beneficial applications of AI in the live video production space, and it’s so rewarding to see evidence of the team’s amazing work in this latest Paint release. The AI-enabled tools and features in 9.3 are the first of much more to come!”
