Women’s and youth fixtures will be broadcast in addition to the men’s game
Pixellot is to provide full coverage of all top league Hungarian ice hockey matches for the next season, after a deal signed with the Magyar Jégkorong Szövetség - The Hungarian Hockey Federation.
Pixellot, which uses AI to automate the video capture, production, and distribution, will stream some 800 games during the campaign, with men’s, women’s, and youth games all to be broadcast.
In addition to acess for fans, referees and coaches will be able to view streams in order to improve officiating and team performance.
Sipos Levente, Secretary-General of The Hungarian Hockey Federation, said: “We are constantly at work seeking ways to advance ice hockey in Hungary.
“The affordability of the systems and the ability to easily capture all games and matches and make them available to our fans is a big step forward in promoting ice hockey in Hungary.”
Alon Werber, CEO of Pixellot, added: “It is exciting to see how ice hockey, one of the top sports in Hungary, is embracing our automated video technology to advance its leagues from the professional to women’s and youth leagues.
“Not only is this democratising sports in Hungary by making so many more games available for viewing, it is also providing teams with additional sources of income which are sorely needed in these Covid-19 times.”
