Launch Signals GameChanger's New Strategic Emphasis on Basketball
NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GameChanger ? the #1-rated youth sports app for live streaming, scorekeeping, and team management ? today announced a groundbreaking addition to its basketball mobile streaming experience: AutoStream.
AutoStream is a free feature that leverages proprietary AI software to automatically track basketball game action, requiring only a mobile device. Coaches and parents will no longer need to set up complex and costly camera systems, worry about missing crucial plays, or depend on a dedicated camera operator to stream the game. With this feature, setting up a stationary mobile phone is all that is needed. The new state-of-the-art technology, which was built entirely in-house by GameChanger, takes care of the rest, following the fast-paced hoops action on the court with precise and reliable camera panning. AutoStream will be available for FREE to iOS GameChanger hoops users in November.
"Artificial intelligence is at the heart of GameChanger's vision for the future, and our latest milestone, AutoStream for basketball, is a testament to our belief in the limitless potential of this technology," said GameChanger president, Sameer Ahuja. "This is only the beginning of how we envision AI reshaping the way youth sports are experienced in the years to come."
Already the top-rated youth sports app for baseball and softball, GameChanger released deep analytics, scorekeeping, and streaming services for basketball in 2020. Since its launch, more basketball games have been covered on GameChanger than have been played in the NBA over the last decade. The company continues to grow its basketball capabilities, most recently announcing that automatic highlight clips have expanded to include rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals in addition to field goals.
In addition, top grassroots basketball organizations across the country choose GameChanger to score and stream their biggest tournaments and events. The company has partnerships with Prep Hoops, NY2LA, Mid America Youth Basketball (MAYB), and Houston Sports Access (HSA), among others.
