South Korea’s strong gaming culture and technological progress have produced many startups that are excelling globally. Bepro11 is one such startup making waves with its video analytics for soccer games. The startup provides video and data analysis solutions through web and app for sports teams’ and players’ performance improvement, focusing on soccer games.
Analyse game, share videos with fans
Bepro11 films soccer matches and creates clips that capture the players’ movement and all the parts of the stadium using 3D stitching technology. The company’s software detects players and balls in video using a fixed camera system as a video source, analyses each event such as passes, shots, etc., and then provides all pre-cut video clips and data reports. With the use of Artificial Intelligence, the firm detects different actions of the players, including passing, tackling and shooting, which gives in-depth performance analysis for the team and each player.
The data analysis and video-clips provided by Bepro11 assists amateur teams and global soccer clubs on their game strategy and growth of their players. The video captures are automatically available for direct analysis within 24 hours of the game. The Bepro Editor feature enables easy cutting of video clips and can be shared with all team members using any device using the Bepro11 online account. The video clips can also be shared with fans, used for social media marketing or put up on the team’s website.
Working with and for teams across the world
Founded in 2015, the startup is working with more than 100 teams around the world from Germany, Austria, USA, Korea, and Thailand. Bepro 11 is also the official partner of Real Madrid youth camps in Europe, Korea National Youth League, as well as several high tier teams. The startup had received 10.3 billion won or $9.07 million in funding in August 2018.
The investment was led by SoftBank Ventures, with contribution from other investors such as Altos Ventures and KT Investment. Bepro11, which has offices in Seoul and Hamburg, Germany, has plans to expand services to the US and also increase presence in Europe. The startup’s future vision is to expand into a Scouting system, Broadcasting, as well as build a community for fans using their core technology based on Artificial Intelligence.
