axle ai Partners With REELY to Introduce Sports Video AI Capability

Software can analyze game footage and auto-detect scoring plays, highlights and exciting moments; companies are announcing the solution at NAB Show in Las Vegas, booth SL15116.

Las Vegas, April 9, 2019 – axle ai, Inc. (NAB booth SL15116) is announcing immediate availability of sports logging for axle ai 2019, based on the REELY platform, which automatically creates highlights in real-time using a proprietary artificial intelligence engine. Conferences, leagues, and teams in both traditional sports and esports can now quickly and easily create highlights and rank the quality of content utilizing REELY’s proprietary HYPE score. Editors no longer have to sift through hours of video to find that one special moment. “Partnering with axle ai gives us the ability to deploy our software both on-premise and in the cloud,” said Ian Stephens, Chief Marketing Officer and Co-Founder of REELY. “Sports content creators and owners – including leagues, teams, venues and broadcasters – are looking for ways to rapidly and affordably tag their game footage. axle ai is providing a radically simple, on-premise solution letting us reach a whole new range of customers.”

axle ai 2019 customers will be able to select the sports logging option, with their choice of on-premise or cloud analysis. These two options can be implemented with any on-premise axle ai media management server. The service is priced per hour of sports or esports that is analyzed; there is also a flat fee for the on-premise server in the case of the on premise option. Unlike traditional MAMs, axle ai is a radically simple solution that can be deployed without custom engineering; complete systems can be purchased for well under $10,000 including hardware and installation. These also work with nearly any form of network storage including standard NASs and SANs.

Today more than ever, the demands of content owners have grown far beyond the ability to deliver live and on-demand streams. REELY focuses on making the creation of short-form content incredibly easy. The fully automated auto-clipping system, with its integrated HYPE score, generates metadata that populate axle ai’s database and user interface, putting the power in the hands of editors to quickly find, rank, and distribute content. axle ai is the exclusive on-premise licensee for the REELY solution. The capability is available for delivery to customers beginning May 1st, 2019.
