Red Bee Media is working with sports data and AI company Stats Perform to expand its metadata proposition with global sports data coverage.
According to Red Bee, the partnership means its customers are now able to provide enhanced end-user experiences with analytical and statistical sports data for live, linear, and on-demand content for electronic program guides (EPGs), mobile apps and other use cases.
Stats Perform’s database of live analytical and statistical sports data includes highlights, score alerts and imagery from more than 4,000 leagues and competitions globally.
All of this data will now be available via Red Bee’s platform where it has been tagged with the relevant metadata,
