wTVision is a leading company providing sports statistics and real-time graphics coverage for more than 40 different sports, worldwide. Working mostly on a service-model, wTVision provides software, hardware and people.The numbers behind a typical month of the company (on this case the month of September) can be really impressive!
- 34 different competitions
- 13 different sports (Football, Basketball, Poker, Dancing, Athletics, Indoor Football, Handball, Judo, Surf, Jiu Jitsu, MMA, Motorcycling and Car Racing)
- 40 cities
- 11 countries
- Over 40 operation people involved (sports analysts and graphics operators)
How does it work? António Paiva, Sports Products Manager at wTVision explains us: “The resources and steps needed to cover a sport event depends on the kind of sport and the type of competition, but generically speaking, an end-to-end service includes the following steps:
Graphics branding conception, developed by our creative designers, the graphics implementation, using partner’s graphic platform (we work with the major brands like Vizrt, Orad, Chyron, Ross Video, Wasp 3D…), the software framework customization (SportStats CG) for the specific project, preparing it to integrate, if needed, external data sources, official timing systems, scoreboards, GPS’s, tracking systems, virtual graphics, among other complementary technologies and the on-site operational service, before and during the event.
This operational service normally includes two people, one to gather the statistics using a dedicated scouting system and another one to control the graphics, in real-time. More people may be needed depending on the level of data required.
We also have single operation editions that enables a single operator to cover both the data and the graphics, enabling us to cover a lot of events every month, worldwide, with less human resources. The result is the company’s presence in over 40 different countries!”.
