The Idea

The Need

In recent years, traditional sports viewership has experienced a decline, particularly among younger audiences, as they are increasingly drawn to alternative forms of entertainment and digital platforms. The surge of streaming services, the increasing popularity of e-sports, and the changing viewing habits of younger generations have all contributed to this shift.

To address this trend and capture the attention of younger, digitally native viewers, a new wave of immersive and on-demand content is necessary. Media companies, sports teams, and leagues are actively seeking innovative ways to engage viewers and provide captivating and personalized sports experiences.

 

The Solution

MindFly offers a unique and exciting new way of experiencing pro sports games and behind-the-scenes moments. The company's AI-powered wearable bodycam and cloud platform provide fans with an immersive game experience by enabling them to view sporting events from the perspective of players and referees. This innovative solution utilizes artificial intelligence to capture and present footage from a first-person point of view, allowing fans to feel more connected to the game.

By using MindFly's technology, fans can witness the action as if they were on the field, creating a more engaging and interactive viewing experience. The fully automated system captures the scene from the player's perspective, providing a unique and thrilling viewing angle.

With their cutting-edge technology, MindFly aims to bridge the gap between fans and their favorite sports stars, making the game more accessible and exciting for viewers regardless of their physical location.

 

The Technology

MindFly's technology revolutionizes the sports industry by providing players and referees with wearable bodycams. These bodycams are integrated into vests and allow for the capture of high-quality footage during sports games. The design of the vests ensures the safety and performance of the players while maintaining the camera's stability.

Customers can access the captured content through two methods: live streaming or extracting the content locally. Once the content is obtained, MindFly's AI software comes into play. The software stabilizes and auto-directs the footage, resulting in smooth and professionally edited clips. Customers have the option to further edit the clips or broadcast them live.
