Using ground breaking technology and working closely with sports data companies such as Opta and Infostrada, combined with our CTO’s experience (founder of Opta), we have designed and developed specialised technical solutions to deliver static and dynamic data, third party content, info graphics and real-time sports data to a range of digital devices for some of the largest brands, and sponsors.
These solutions could be in the form of widgets that can be inserted into an existing website’s sidebar via a simple line of code, right through to entire websites and data centre solutions such as Castrol and Sky Go. Some solutions display information such as real time stats, scores, results and league tables and others enable users to interact with the data.
Ajax, Jquery and other open-source technologies have been used to stream live updates to websites and mobile apps while sporting events are taking place.
For Castrol Football, we used soccer statistics from Opta Sports Data to create a match prediction system which tried to predict the outcome of a game based on previous meetings and the statistics of each, individual player.
For both of the previous two Olympic Games, we developed a live, updating medals table, one of which had an alert system, which messaged a subscriber’s mobile phone when a medal was won.
