Tel Aviv, Israel (November 20th, 2019) – PlaySight Interactive, a leading global sports technology and AI company, is pleased today to announce a new partnership with the Israeli Volleyball Association. PlaySight’s Smart AI and connected camera technology platform is powering leading volleyball teams, colleges and organizations globally, and this new partnership will bring the same pro-level analysis tools and automated production broadcast technology to the Israeli Volleyball Association for the first time.
“With PlaySight, this marks the first time that we will be able to live stream and broadcast our matches, and we’re excited to be giving our clubs a technology platform with pro-level coaching tools that will improve in their on-court development.”
The Association has the goal of making volleyball the leading sport in Israel through the development of suitable infrastructure, a ‘sport for all’ focus, promoting the grassroots level and achieving meaningful and sustainable success at an international level.
“We are pleased and proud to launch this new partnership alongside our league teams,” said Yaniv Noyman, General Director of the Israeli Volleyball Association. “With PlaySight, this marks the first time that we will be able to live stream and broadcast our matches, and we’re excited to be giving our clubs a technology platform with pro-level coaching tools that will improve in their on-court development. Additionally, PlaySight will enable more content monetization opportunities for our clubs and will help to engage and motivate the next generation of volleyball players in Israel.”
The Association plans to launch its own broadcast channel, powered by PlaySight technology. “By the end of the year, we will be setting up ‘Israel Volleyball Evening,’ broadcasting action from most of our league’s venues and allowing our fans across the country and world to watch live broadcasts from all games,” Noyman continued. “Our coaches are also excited about adding real-time video technology through PlaySight, so that they can analyze and improve instantly, just like the top athletes and leagues across the world.”
