Stunning, fast and engaging sports graphics

OVERVIEW: PIERO

Sports Graphics and Data Visualization

PIERO is a cost-effective and user-friendly sports graphics system. PIERO enhances sports video content with visually engaging and informative effects by using image recognition and state-of-the-art graphic overlays. Developed from ground-breaking research by the BBC in 2004, it was the first graphics software of its type. Years later, working closely with our customers, we have made PIERO an indispensable tool for sports analysis.
