Data Collection Systems
Flexible, simple, powerful
Sportradar has in-house developed data collection systems for more than 20 different sports which are available across multiple devices.
Whether football, basketball, rugby or table tennis, our data collection systems are tailor-made for specific rules and regulations and still provide an easy-to-use interface guaranteeing a fast and accurate data entry. Our data collection can vary from basic first-level data, e.g. results or goals to deeper and more sophisticated data, e.g. ball-spotting or player-related data, depending on needs and availability.
Sportradar works with a network of more than 8,300 independently contracted data journalists around the globe which enables us to cover from over 600,000 events every year.
Through our data collection systems and our Scouting Management Platform (SMP), we are able to set up continuous training sessions and scout supervision to guarantee the highest quality and integrity standards throughout the whole collection process.
Fast, secure, validated
Sportradar processes all collected data through two independent server centres in Europe. With a delay of less than one second between the live event in the stadium and the visualisation at the customer we are among the fastest data providers in the market.
To ensure the highest quality in our data processing each and every match runs through a post-validation process to make sure that all results are accurate. Furthermore, all processes are reviewed and improved on a regular basis.
Due to our real-time processing we have also all but closed the time lag between event occurrence and event recording that allows courtsiders to flourish*.
* Courtsiding is understood as the practice of transmitting information from an area where a sport event is taking place to people overseas, in order to take advantage of broadcasting time delays to manipulate betting.
