NEW FORMS OF INTELLIGENCE
BRINGING ANOTHER DIMENSION TO SPORTS ANALYSIS
Not content with successfully bringing its sports video analysis solutions into line with the opportunities offered by cloud computing, Dartfish is already preparing its next plan of attack. “The question we have to ask ourselves now is what else should we add to video analysis to make sure that every single minutia of a sport performance can be scrutinized”, explains Victor Bergonzoli, CEO of the former start-up which made its name thanks to its image sequencing technology. “Take a soccer match, for example. Thanks to technology, each pass made on the pitch can be captured and counted, while sensors track the movements of each player, making it possible to calculate their average speed and the total distance they cover during a game. Other information can also be harvested, like an athlete’s maximum physical capacity and performance cycle. Building in these elements, and many more besides, will enable us to develop a multidimensional performance analysis solution.” In an era when mastery of detail plays an ever more decisive role, Dartfish is making it easier to be 100% match-fit.
