Stats Perform and Veritone team up for new data partnership
Veritone, Inc., creator of aiWARE, a hyper-expansive enterprise AI platform, has announced a new strategic partnership with Stats Perform, the sports tech leader in data and AI, designed to provide real-time play-by-play, pre-game, in-game and post-game updates.
The partnership will combine Veritone’s award-winning synthetic voice AI technology and Stats Perform’s trusted Opta sports data to bring localized, AI voice capabilities to content creators, media organizations, brand agencies, teams, leagues and betting platforms around the globe.
“Generating lifelike AI voice commentary for sports is the natural next step for the industry,” said Stats Perform Chief Revenue Officer Steve Xeller. “Thanks to Veritone technology, our users will now have the ability to create custom voices in partnership with beloved broadcasters, in multiple languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Italian and Arabic, and incorporate these lifelike voice options into stats reporting to reach wider global audiences with localized content. This is particularly important for those who do not read and speak the host-distributed language; as well as those with visual impairments or disabilities.”
“Veritone’s partnership with Stats Perform is truly a tipping point within the sports tech and AI industries,” said Veritone President, Ryan Steelberg. “This is the first-time synthetic voice will be deployed in sports reporting at scale. It takes storytelling in sports to a new level and dramatically transforms fan engagement.”
