The Federación Metropolitana de Voleibol has come to an agreement with Genius Sports to livestream its matches
The livestreaming will be done via digital platform in which the premier men and women’s leagues will be livestreamed worldwide, through Genius Sports’ AI-powered software. GeniusLive will remove restrictive high costs that have prevented these matches to be broadcasted widely, such as hardware production and camera crew and will provide a way to help drive the progress and evolution of FMV, with leading competition management, live scoring, analytics and scouting solutions in the sport.
The platform will provide live streams, enabling the fans of the sport to have a highly satisfying experience as viewers. The system that will broadcast the matches, under the name “VideoCheck”, will operate up to 23 high-speed cameras, and will enhance the matches by detecting all major infringements and fouls, including service line faults and net touches.
In regards to this, Juan Sardo, President of the FMV, stated: “This is a partnership that elevates the tournaments of the Metropolitan Volleyball Federation and positions it as a leading institution in the organisation of sports tournaments.”
Roman Ariel Lopez, Secretary of the FMV, commented: “Without a doubt, this partnership that we have reached with Genius Sports means a before and after for an institution that was established nearly 90 years’ ago. It marks a critical point in enhancing the future of our competitions.”
Fernando Martinez, Head of Commercial, Latam at Genius Sports, further said “Against the obvious challenges of 2020, Genius sports is looking to maximise the value of their live video and data in reconnecting with their fans and driving new revenues. We’re excited to sign such a long-term partnership with the FMV, driving their digital transformation through multiple new solutions and expanding the reach of GeniusLive in Latam.”
