Axel Springer’s Dyn Media Chooses Pixellot AI-Automated Video as Part of Production Ecosystem in Germany
German streaming platform Dyn Media has completed the implementation of AI-Automated sports cameras at 38 sports venues throughout the country via a partnership with Pixellot.
Dyn Media is the sports streaming platform by former German Football League (DFL) Chief Executive Christian Seifert and publishing house Axel Springer. It will cover a range of premier leagues from the country’s most famous arenas including the Audi Dome in Munich, and Mercedes-Benz Arena Berlin.
Dyn Media is venturing into the digital sports market with an initial focus on basketball, handball, table tennis, volleyball and hockey. As part of its ecosystem, Dyn Media chose Pixellot as an imperative part of its innovative production offering additional camera feeds for both its Handball Bundesliga (HBL) and Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) next to its broadcasting technology.
