BROADCAST SOLUTIONS FOR RACING

SMT captures the full breadth of the racing experience, translating hard data into intriguing visualizations with live tracking, virtual effects, storyline graphics and more.

Broadcast Analytics

SMT's Broadcast Analytics tool—with its popular GhostCar   feature—integrates data and telemetry to virtually highlight replays, allowing commentators to analyze drivers, lines and strategies for motorsports races. This technology can be adapted to other forms of racing. 

During live sessions, the GhostCar application ingests SMT’s RACEf/x   tracking data, and, through an easy-to-navigate user interface, allows producers to cue up laps or runs to compare performances from vantage points not available through broadcast cameras.

Broadcast Analytics gives commentators visualization insights to:

  • Compare lines;

  • Compare live performances of “hot” lap vs. current pole sitter;

  • Show time gained or lost when cars take green flag pit stops; and

  • Freeze the field at the time of caution to show running position at last loop crossed.

Team Analytics

Team Analytics is an application that ingests a data feed combining loop data, timing and scoring, and SMT location and telemetry data to create a visualization tool with expanded features and playback capabilities.

Available to all NASCAR racing teams and officials, Team Analytics translates hard data into intriguing visualizations with a robust cloud and on-site server infrastructure that streams and stores the data that powers playback.

Team Analytics offers a constantly expanding feature set that includes:

 

  • Customizable visualizations: Users can tailor the app to create visualizations based on live tracking, virtual effects, storyline graphics and more.

  • Configurable virtual camera options: Options include Birds-Eye View (BEV) camera mode that provides a big picture view of the racing action, giving teams insight into competitors’ strategies. Includes indicators for leader, lap-down and lucky dog cars.

  • Session Manager: This flexible feature allows users to individually select racing sessions (practice, qual, race) for comparisons as well as cross-session analysis. Data can be accessed live or on demand.

  • Virtual Timing & Scoring Fixed Loops: Users set predefined fixed playback loops to break down location and telemetry data at the physical loop locations.

  • Multi-lap table mode: Enables users to view times and information from every lap in the session while highlighting fastest or fastest consecutive laps.

  • Recording feature: Users can record video clips for easy sharing.
