Sports Ball and Players Detection and Tracking for video broadcasts

Sports Ball Detection and Tracking

Sports Tracking is the module available starting from Xeoma Beta 19.11.26 and based on artificial intelligence data sets designed for automatic detection of a sports ball or players in camera’s field of view, and automatic tracking – rotation of the camera to always follow the object. This is especially highly-demanded in video broadcasts of team sports events.

The module can be used for American football, soccer, basketball team games, in different playfield conditions.
No special equipment required – regular commonly available off-shelf computers can be used. No special camera required – any brand or model supporting standard streaming PTZ protocols can be used. Just make sure that the image is clear and the fast moving ball will not be blurred.

Any team game
Works with basketball, soccer, American football, etc.
Any equipment
As always, Xeoma requires no special equipment or appliances – any off-shelf computers and cameras will do that allow to see the ball without blurs!
Easy 1-click setup
Connect the module to a PTZ camera in Xeoma, let it get resources, and the system is ready to work!

Simple interface, fully automated work. Just let Xeoma download the datasets for you, and you’re good to go!
