  • Publication number: 20230026625
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed to add augmented reality to a sub-view of a high resolution central video feed. In various embodiments, a central video feed is received from a first camera on a first recurring basis and time-stamped position information is received from a tracking system on a second recurring basis. The central video feed is calibrated against a spatial region encompassed by the central video feed. The received time-stamped position information and a determined plurality of tiles associated with at least one frame of the central video feed are used to define a first sub-view of the central video feed. The first sub-view and a homography defining placement of augmented reality elements on the at least one frame of the central video feed are provided as output to a device configured to use the first sub-view and the homography display the first sub-view.

  • Publication number: 20220274022
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a process to predict an outcome of a competition includes receiving time-stamped position information of participant(s), the time-stamped position information captured by a telemetry tracking system during the competition. The process includes calculating while the competition is ongoing a covariate parameter for each of one or more participants at a point in time, where each respective covariate parameter is derived from the time-stamped position information of a corresponding participant at the point in time. The process includes predicting the outcome of the competition, as of the point in time, based at least in part on (i) a difference between a calculated competitor strength of the first competitor the second competitor based on historical data associated with the competitors, and (ii) the calculated first covariate parameter(s).

  • Publication number: 20220203241
    Abstract: A process to track and provide positional information for display on a remote device includes receiving, on a first recurring basis, time-stamped position information of participant(s) in a competition. The time-stamped position information is captured by a telemetry tracking system during the competition and describes a time-stamped position of each of one or more corresponding participants in a predetermined spatial region. The process includes communicating at least a subset of time-stamped position information to the remote device on a second recurring basis. The remote device uses the time-stamped position information to overlay a representation of one or more of said participants onto a first virtual reproduction of at least a relevant portion of the predetermined spatial region to produce and display an instance of a compiled virtual scene that shows a respective position of each of the participant(s) on the first virtual reproduction of the predetermined spatial region.
