Extreme E has announced that it is teaming up with WSC Sports, the AI-based sports video technology specialist, ahead of its second X Prix from 29-30 May 2021 at Lac Rose in Dakar, Senegal.
The partnership will see Extreme E given access to WSC Sports’ cloud-based live-clipping platform Clipro, allowing the series to create and publish near-live and post-race highlights, as well as the company’s Graphics Engine.
“It is really important for us to share the action with our fans as soon as possible as they won’t be watching the races on-site,” said Ali Russell, chief marketing officer at Extreme E. “This partnership with WSC Sports not only allows us to share content quickly, but with some really interesting graphics and overlays, which I’m sure will appeal to our global audience.”
Itai Epstein, head of business development, Central Eastern Europe & China at WSC Sports, added: “Extreme E offers an exciting and ambitious new racing concept. WSC Sports is always happy to partner with innovative and forward thinking organisations, and so we’re honoured to take part in this great endeavour and contribute to its success by providing Extreme E with the tools to maximise fan engagement and spread the word across digital media around the world.”
