Fluendo acquires LongoMatch
Barcelona, 9th February 2014
LongoMatch software lets users tag plays, review portions of a live game in slow motion and create post-match analysis, all adaptable to a variety of video formats. The software also lets users review tagged events in-game and lets them export the clips while still analyzing the game live. It is currently available for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems and in the future will be incorporated into the Fluendo family of products. LongoMatch was nominated as one of the 10 best sports analysis systems in the world in the 2013 Performance Video Analysis Software Guide.
“After years of development, LongoMatch is used today all over the world by amateur and professional sports teams, including the Belgium national World Cup soccer team and the Spanish national handball team,” said Andoni Morales, LongoMatch’s founder and Senior Developer at Fluendo. “Joining a group like Fluendo gives LongoMatch additional international reach and will help the product to evolve and compete with the best in the market. LongoMatch will benefit from Fluendo’s highly recognized video expertise and I am proud to join the Fluendo team.”
“With the rising popularity of global sports, such as soccer and basketball, we have concurrently noticed a rise in demand for online video analysis software – tools that let fans and professionals analyze, evaluate and digitally dissect online video feeds of sporting events,” said Mercè Delgado, CFO of Fluendo. “After reviewing the video software landscape, it was clear to us that LongoMatch not only has some of the best software in the market, but it will also work well with our ONEPLAY suite of software solutions. We are excited to welcome LongoMatch to the Fluendo family.”
