HUDstats and SIS agree multi-year esports betting data partnership
Esports data analytics firm HUDstats has partnered with Sports Information Services (SIS) the multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, to deliver “actionable, real-time data for esports betting purposes”.
Under the terms of the collaboration, HUDstats will use its proprietary Advanced Video Analysis (AVA) technology to collect, standardise and distribute accurate esports data from SIS’ e-basketball and e-soccer streams for the creation of real-time esports betting products.
Andrei Bălănescu, CEO of HUDstats, said: “We’re looking forward to working with SIS and providing esports fans and esports betting aficionados with engaging and fascinating data and statistics for their favourite streams.
“Our technology stack allows us to provide a great number of accurate match data points in real-time, at a sub-second speed. Our partners, SIS, can use them to create engaging on-screen graphics and betting commentary that increase performance for their customers.”
Conleth Byrne, Product Director at SIS, added: “HUDstats provides a ground-breaking and easy-to-integrate solution that enables us to scale our 24/7 Competitive Gaming content with automated and accurate in-play event tracking.”
The HUDstats/SIS partnership currently involves tracking more than 20 major in-game events for e-soccer and 40 in-game events for e-basketball.
In e-soccer, HUDstats covers data points from events such as ball location, free kicks, goal kicks, throw-ins, substitutions, added time, offsides, goals, and corners. For e-basketball, the company can track free throws, 2-pointers, 3-pointers, timeouts, fouls, and the team in possession.
Bălănescu explained: “HUDstats showcases all the noteworthy aspects of the match and even more in-depth features, such as what side a corner is taken from or if a free-kick is from a dangerous position. That’s a feat otherwise impossible to obtain in real-time by manual input.”
HUDstats currently covers a full range of esports titles including EA FIFA, NBA2k, EA NHL, EA NFL Madden, as well as the big three: League of Legends, Dota 2, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
