Belgium Jupiler Pro League Selects STATS as Official Tracking and Performance Data Provider

Jaa

STATS, the global leader in sports data and intelligence, has been chosen for the next three years to be the Official Tracking and Performance Data Provider for the Belgium Jupiler Pro League.

STATS will provide the league and its clubs with player tracking data through STATS SportVU and athlete monitoring insights via STATS Dynamix™, plus the industry’s highest detail of match coverage with STATS Tier 6+™ Event Data. STATS also will manage data collection, postgame certification and distribution of the official league statistics to the Jupiler Pro League’s media partners.

“We are very happy that after the Multimedia day organised last season by the Pro League, a collaboration between the Belgium Federation (URBSFA), The Pro League, All the Belgium Clubs and STATS has been signed,” said Pierre François, CEO of the Jupiler Pro League. “The collaboration with STATS, which has been ongoing since the first match of the season, has helped the Pro League Belgium clubs to progress in the management of their technical data and also the video capture and tracking of their games.”

Jupiler Pro League teams will benefit from the wealth of data STATS collects this season through SportVU and Tier 6+ event data. STATS SportVU, an optical player tracking system that tracks the positions of players and the ball 25 times per second, delivers an abundance of unique performance data. STATS SportVU enables coaches and analysts to make informed decisions with the most advanced football tracking data available. As part of the continued investment to advance team performance solutions, STATS recently commissioned a 12-month independent study to validate SportVU alongside other tracking systems to set a gold standard for tracking technology in team performance.

“Following the recommendation of our national coach, M. Roberto Martinez, the Jupiler Pro League clubs have decided for a complete consolidation of our information between the 16 clubs and their use by the technical staff of the Belgium Federation,” said François. “The Belgium Federation (URBSFA) is fully supporting this agreement and is convinced this is only a first step.”

Last year, STATS introduced Tier 6+ Event Data for football matches. Tier 6+ includes more than 2,700 separate events per game, which are provided to teams live with a timestamp, position (x,y), and player/team involved. Jupiler Pro League teams can utilize the live data through a variety of viewing platforms through the STATS API or XML feeds.

“We are honoured to establish this strategic partnership with the Jupiler Pro League to enhance the match analysis and player performance evaluation for all of its clubs,” said Kenneth Fuchs, CEO of STATS. “STATS is committed to continually investing in ways to support our world-class football partners though our advanced data capture products like SportVU and our data science-generated innovations to help our clients stay ahead of the game. Now, with access to millions of meaningful data points, we are confident that the Belgium Jupiler Pro League teams will greatly benefit and will be equipped to perform at their peak potential.”

CorFlow Presents Fundamental New Insights into the Coronary Microcirculation at ACC22.2.2018 12:10Tiedote

CorFlow Therapeutics AG (www.corflow-therapeutics.ch) today announced that the company will present fundamental new insights into the coronary microcirculation during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Orlando, FL, March 10-12, 2018. CorFlow has since its foundation in June 2016 worked to document that the Controlled Flow Infusion (CoFITM) technology is able to measure the coronary microvascular status and provide therapy to the compromised coronary microcirculation at the same time. Microvascular obstruction (MVO) affects more than half of the acute heart attack patients and is an independent predictor for complications including heart failure which constitutes a high cost burden for the world-wide health care system. To address this large unmet medical need in interventional cardiology, CorFlow has developed an in-vivo model which reproducibly creates MVO in an occlusion-reperfusion model with very low complication rates. Using this in-vivo model, the C

DocsCorp White Paper Encourages Businesses to Review their 2018 Data Protection Strategy – Protection through Technology22.2.2018 12:02Tiedote

Tough new data protection laws are coming – are you prepared? Reviewing your data protection strategy in 2018, a new white paper published today by DocsCorp, challenges readers to assess their readiness to comply with rigorous upcoming data protection standards affecting businesses in Europe, the Americas and Australia. DocsCorp contends that organizations around the world will be affected by new data laws. The UK’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into force in May 2018. Australia’s new, sweeping National Data Breach (NDB) notification laws already require all businesses to report data breaches. In the United States, many individual states have passed their own data protection laws, and the US federal government has proposed the nationwide Data Security and Breach Notification Act, currently under congressional review. A main focus of GDPR is “Privacy by Design and Default,” which recommends preventative action before breaches occur rather than coping with damages and pe

GSMA Warns That Policymakers Must Act Now to Avoid Mobile Network “Gridlock” in Major Cities22.2.2018 12:00Tiedote

The GSMA today published a new report that examines the ability of mobile networks to meet the exploding demand for mobile data in the world’s largest and densest cities. The GSMA/Boston Consulting Group report, “Delivering the Digital Revolution: Will Mobile Infrastructure Keep Up with Rising Demand?”, finds that networks in so-called “megacities” such as New York, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tokyo will face a significant gap between mobile data traffic demand and available network capacity, with as much as 48 per cent of traffic demand going unserved in ultra-dense urban areas by 2025. The report highlights that regulatory reform will be critical in closing the projected supply-demand gap and unlocking the economic potential of next-generation mobile broadband. “The current global regulatory landscape has been successful in creating a competitive market that has made mobile connectivity accessible to more than five billion people around the world,” said John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Offic
