TruMedia Soccer Analytics in the News
ESPN's use of TruMedia's analytics platform was recently covered in a series of Forbes articles. Here is an excerpt for one of the feature articles:
"Diving into the TruMedia tool, Paul makes a few mouse clicks to isolate the Spanish team’s matches from the World Cup, and then a few more clicks to specify that he wants to view the shots they faced when Casillas was in goal. At that point TruMedia presents both the goal-side view of the shots, each shot placed on an x-y plane indicating their height and width, and the tabular data in a window below the goal-side view. Misses on the goal-side view are marked outside of the mouth of the goal with a circle and red “X”. Blocked shots are simply red circles within the mouth of goal, and Telstar-style soccer balls mark the two goals Casillas let in. Paul makes a few more clicks, and the goal end graphic is now superimposed on the ESPN Euro 2012 background while Casillas’ stock photo and the Spanish flag are inserted into pre-defined fields in the graphic. Paul types in the summary statistics of matches played, shots-on-goal, and goals against for Casillas. The image is ready for broadcast, and with Hurwitz’s approval it is stored in a shared drive for use later that night. It may not be the first time such a view is used at ESPN, but it is the first time such a view has been created within TruMedia for English-speaking television use. What used to take 15 minutes of manual labor is now automatically generated straight from Opta data in a minute or less."
