Investment & Partnership opportunity
LiberoVision’s technology allows for close analysis of football games by synthesizing video pictures from fixed cameras filming across the stadium. Within three to five minutes realistic virtual replays can be created of players from every angle, allowing for in-depth half-time analysis. The technique does not require additional cameras or infrastructure in the stadium and does not interfere with production processes.
“Although we have just closed our first investment round we will need additional funding for our company in the coming months,” said Dr. Stephan Würmlin, chief executive officer of LiberoVision, “Besides that we are also looking for licensing of interesting technology in video processing and for research partners or collaborators to further refine or extend our products.” The company is “always looking for potential investors or partners to bring our technology and products some steps further,” he added.

The software will be tested in this season’s Axpo Super League games and other Swiss football, and used by Cinetrade for Teleclub sports programmes.
With currently no comparable providers on the market, LiberoVision plans to expand to include additional sports such as American Football, basketball or baseball over the next few years. As well as broadcasting, the technology has applications in internet interactive players for replaying scenes, with users freely navigating in a scene to generate their own perspective.
