Audiovisual content, integrity services and statistics
Partners in many different areas of the game
Since the start of the 2016-17 season, Sportradar has been distributing data
and industry standard audio-visual game feeds from the National Basketball
Association to gaming operators outside of the U.S.
The NBA also incorporated Sportradar’s Integrity Services into its existing
game integrity protection measures.
Beginning with the 2017-18 season, Sportradar will make statistical
information for the NBA, WNBA and NBA Development League more widely
available than ever before, delivering data to fans, teams, media and other
data users in more than 80 countries and territories. At that time, Sportradar
will become the league’s official provider of real-time NBA league statistics.
Sportradar will also distribute player-tracking data from Second Spectrum
the new Official Optical Tracking Provider of the NBA. Second Spectrum will
provide advanced statistics, such as speed, distance, drives, paint touches
and defensive impact, based on its unique technology for machine
understanding of sports for comprehensive analysis of players and teams.
As the interest in – and analysis of – data continues to grow around the world,
we look forward to furthering the depth and reach of NBA data and analytics
through our partnership with Sportradar and Second Spectrum.
