Astucemedia Shows Latest Version of Real-time Sports Data Platform

At NAB Show 2016, Astucemedia will debut the latest version of its Astucemedia Data Platform (ADP) on the Vizrt booth. ADP for Sports that simplifies the often complex process of creating and managing visually pleasing live broadcast graphics infused with real-time data feeds from STATS, OPTA, and other sports data service providers.

Designed as a modular environment, the Astucmedia Data Platform platform automatically ingests data as it streams in, and populates pre-designed, customizable graphics templates with the key information to be presented. The platform includes modules tailored to the unique needs of soccer, football, basketball, hockey, golf, tennis and motorsports.

The platform leverages custom plug-ins, created by Astucemedia, which seamlessly integrate the platform with graphics software from Vizrt, such as Viz Trio and Viz Content Pilot, as well as ingesting and managing dynamic assets within the Viz One media asset management system.

Astucemedia will also highlight its platform’s seamless data integration with another Vizrt system, Viz Libero, a 3D virtual sports solution used to generate live 3D replays, novel game perspectives and sports analysis.

ADP for Sports also features a Motor Sports module—an exclusive, real-time auto racing application—that ingests and processes live, in-car telemetry and timing data from the series, such as NASCAR, INDYCAR and MotoGP and others, as well as the data provided by the racetracks where the events are held. This data can be seamlessly integrated with posts from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms.

Besides the Astucemedia Data Platform for Sports, Astucemedia also offers ADP modules dedicated to the creation of data-driven graphics for U.S. elections, financial market data, weather, social media and news.
