Stats Perform and NativeWaves Launch a New Second Screen Offering for Sports Fans
Stats Perform and NativeWaves have formed a new partnership and the launch of a new product that gives sports fans an enhanced viewing experience on their mobile devices.
The groundbreaking tool combines the data and analytic strengths of Stats Perform with the advanced streaming and multi-channel synchronization technology offered by solutions and media experience company NativeWaves. The new platform lets fans create their own personalized viewer experience, overlaying video angles they choose and the data and information they want to see, creating a unique second-screen experience that can be leveraged by broadcast and OTT providers.

It provides instant access to alternate camera angles, audio and data feeds without any lagging sequences or interruptions to enhance the viewing experience.

The product was made possible through collaboration with Stats Perform product incubator, which helped bring the latest AI-powered insights and content to the product.
