The OASIS Platform

SMT’s approach to sports technology is embodied in our latest innovation, the OASIS (Organization of Asynchronous Sports Information Subsystems) Platform.

SMT’s patented OASIS Platform is a highly-integrated, multi-venue, time-synchronized, multilevel, data/video management system that SMT architected, designed and created to provide professional sports leagues with a platform to maintain, administer and manage centralized control over all phases of the data and video, including:

  1. Creation;

  2. Collection, organization, synchronization, management, administration, distribution;

  3. Micro-authentication (user access and entitlement);

  4. Visualization; and,

  5. Monetization.

The OASIS Platform’s capabilities include:

  • Organizing live and accurate tracking systems;

  • Creating new and advanced statistics through its Eventing Intelligence Engine;

  • Supporting commentators with live, continually updating in-game information; and

  • Outputting to graphical interface systems for broadcast enhancements.

LIVE BROADCAST AND EVENT ENHANCEMENTS

SMT provides clients with effective on-site and broadcast data visualization and storytelling tools. Below is an overview and brief description of our most prominent products and services.

Scoring, Statistical & Event Administration Systems

Having designed and developed the official timing, scoring and administration systems for multiple leagues and events, SMT understands the complexities of live events and the significance of effective real-time data presentation.

 

SMT scoring systems integrate both manual and automated data capture technologies and include systems that generate official statistics and analytics. These systems also deliver content via broadcast and onsite video displays graphics, and to various digital platforms (mobile, web and information systems) that provide real-time, historical and year-to-date historical data and comparisons for the media.  

 

SMT’s event administration systems include a variety of applications to assist event organizers with the management of major sports events. They include, for example, sophisticated scheduling and prize money systems as well as athlete registration systems and PISA (Press Information System Application), used at Wimbledon to schedule athlete interviews for media. SMT can provide various examples of how it has assisted event organizers with this technology and expertise.

Tracking and Telemetry

From NASCAR to the NFL, SMT’s tracking technologies help tell stories through data visualizations via the four key forms of sports tracking technology:

  • Optical,

  • GPS,

  • Infrared (IR), and 

  • Ultra-wideband (UWB/RFID).

 

SMT assists Major League Baseball, Minor League baseball and the PGA Tour with our optical tracking technology. We use computer vision to track baseballs and golf balls to within a pixel or better accuracy. SMT has tracked over 10 million pitches in baseball as well as all of the approach shots for every PGA Tour event. For NFL broadcasts, SMT’s CameraTracker provides an optical data tracking system on an aerial broadcast camera to insert live 3D virtual graphics onto the playing field. SMT’s Next Gen Tele auto render system brings impactful value with storytelling tools that show fans the route variations as plays develop.  

 

SMT captures a plethora of GPS-generated information for motorsports, including telemetry data (speed, throttle, brakes, gears, and RPM), positioning data and camera data. The data is used to create a real-time digital record ​of the race that is dispersed to various systems that feed on-air graphics.

SMT’s Puck and Player Tracking technology for the NHL is based on infrared ​technology. We place sensors in the back collar of the player uniforms as well as sensors inside the puck to track accurately within an inch.

The Professional Fighters League (PFL) uses our Ultra-Wide Band/RFID technology to help determine punch speeds of their fighters which is then visualized throughout the fight as graphical insertions to help augment the broadcaster's storytelling efforts.

Virtual Insertion

SMT’s powerful, real-time virtual insertion platforms are custom designed for sporting events, newscasts, award ceremonies and concerts. Broadcasters worldwide use SMT’s 2D and 3D virtual graphics to help viewers focus on key plays and statistics, to insert targeted virtual ads or to create dramatic and compelling visuals. SMT’s Virtual Fans, Ads and Brands (V-FAB) system infuses broadcasts with the high energy of virtual fans in the stands, while empowering sponsors and advertisers with in-game, geographically targeted virtual ads and messaging.
