As the Mexican national team celebrates its World Cup victories over Germany and South Korea, seeUplay®, Pixellot’s local partner in Mexico, on Monday announced a major agreement with the Mexican Soccer Federation (FMF) and the LIGA MX, for Pixellot’s world-leading production automation technology to be deployed at all 18 Liga MX clubs and its youth academies, to boost performance through latest video coaching methods.
Located in Petach Tikva, Israel, Pixellot offers automated sports production solutions that provide affordable alternatives to traditional video capture, production and distribution systems for professional and semi-professional sport events.
“SeeUplay will help us to homogenize the way in which we record videos and give us the same quality for all the teams of the National Team and the MX League,” said Victor Guevara, FMF Operations Director. “Pixellot is a core component of our intelligent coaching system that can follow the players on the court, with information available at any time, whether it’s a match or official training.”
While the Mexican National team is delighting the entire nation at the World Cup, the Pixellot C Coaching systems are being installed at all Liga MX stadiums, training facilities, and at the national team’s training complex, which will be ready when they get back for the 2018 national tournament beginning July 20. At that point, Liga MX will join dozens of professional clubs around Europe and China that already use the same Pixellot systems to boost their performance.
The Pixellot coaching solution generates panoramic footage of the entire pitch, as well an automatically produced feed of the game, enabling frame-by-frame review of each play and high-quality footage for any player and game-tracking or performance-analysis platform. With direct connectivity to the cloud, Pixellot feeds are delivered to the coaches and video analysts with minimal delay to support real-time decision-making and improve their workflow.
The Pixellot system comes replete with a myriad production modules, including automatic highlights, high-end graphics, editing tools, scoreboard, and audio from a play-by-play commentator.
“We’re excited to equip Mexico’s top teams with state-of-the-art coaching technology,” said Eduardo Gorodzinsky, Director General of seeUplay. “We see very promising talent in Liga MX’s youth teams and have no doubt that the Pixellot coaching systems will contribute significantly to their development.”
“Pixellot’s tech will be instrumental elevating the level of play by virtue of its power as a coaching tool. It’s already being used at the top clubs in England’s Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, and Germany’s Bundesliga, and we’re happy to make them available to the Mexican League,” said Alon Werber, CEO of Pixellot. “Mexico’s top players are demonstrating their high level of play at the World Cup and I’m positive that with comprehensive video coaching they will even improve their skills and performance.”
