Pixellot Signs AI Video Camera Deal with China’s Baidu

Pixellot has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Baidu, China’s Internet giant. This agreement will see the installation of 200 Pixellot systems at venues in China.

The goal is to add 6000 more systems over the next three years. Baidu will expand its involvement in China’s sports market with this new partnership.

“We are excited to be part of this innovative project that will revolutionize China’s sports market,” says Liu Gang, director, Chengdu Event Operation Center. “It is a unique opportunity for us to collaborate with Pixellot and Baidu, and we are looking forward to the project’s success.”

Pixellot’s technology automatically captures and produces games without the use of a camera operator. Pixellot uses AI-powered cameras that track players and the ball throughout the game to ensure every moment is captured and made available to fans. Pixellot offers sports analytics and video breakdown solutions that analyze players and games, providing analytics for review and highlights and enabling coaches and administrators to improve their team’s performance and teach more effectively.

Pixellot’s technology has been used in over 27,000 venues around the globe and has produced and streamed over 2 million games. The project’s goal is to give local communities a means to interact with local teams and competitions as well as encourage participation and a healthy, active lifestyle.

The race for AI sports camera domination is on.

We are thrilled to partner with Pixellot, whose AI-driven sports production solutions are a perfect fit for our strategic vision of delivering innovative technology solutions to communities,” says Liu Chuan, Solution Director of Baidu’s Intelligent Cloud Sports Industry. “We see huge potential for growth in China’s sports market, and this partnership is a significant step towards realizing that potential.”

Pixellot will provide the live streaming technology, automated highlights and advertising placements as part of this project. We are thrilled to partner with Baidu in supporting their exciting and ambitious community sports project. Alon Werber, CEO of Pixellot, stated that his company’s technology solutions would be a game changer for families and sports fans in the county.

On March 14, the new project will officially be launched at an event in Chengdu. Local Chengdu government officials, Baidu, Pixellot and a SaaS/OTT provider will all be present at the launch event.
