Abeo: Promising commercial launch for VOGOSCOPE – A unique international offer resulting from the joint venture created by ABEO and VOGO
ABEO (ISIN FR0013185857, ABEO) and VOGO (ISIN FR0011532225, ALVGO) announce the first commercial success of their VOGOSCOPE solution, the first “turnkey” kit for multi-camera capture and Live & Replay video broadcasting for amateur sport, training centers and local authorities.
VOGOSCOPE, easy-to-use and versatile video tools dedicated to sports coaches and technical staff (improving athletic performance), also allows fans to watch competitions that are neither broadcast nor televised.
Confirmation of the potential of VOGOSCOPE: a valuable response to the new challenges of professional and amateur sport
Since the end of 2020, the solution has been quickly adopted by many organizations from several different sports, including the Tony Parker Adéquat Academy (Lyon), Montpellier Beach Volleyball, the French Surf Federation and the French Dance Federation.
In accordance with the business plan announced by ABEO and VOGO, the deployment of the solution accelerated in early 2021, with already many successes in a wide range of sports, indoor and outdoor, including contracts with CREPS (Resource, Expertise and Centers de Performance Sportive) in Nantes and Ile-de-France, who wanted to operate modern and connected video solutions to analyze performance.
In addition to the training centers, contracts have also been awarded by several professional clubs, including the installation at the Stade Brutus for training and matches of the Catalans Dragons (rugby XIII club playing in the English Super League), Paris Basketball, as well as as the Vipers ice hockey club.
Using a combination of underwater and surface cameras, the VOGOSCOPE solution is also implemented for high-level swimmer training, recreational swimming and aquatic events for the general public, where multi-angle video solutions provide coaches, swimmers and spectators a unique experience.
The CNA (Cercle des Nageurs d’Antibes) and the UCPA – future operator of the new nautical stadium in Mérignac (preparation center for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games) – have both chosen the VOGOSCOPE solution for their aquatic infrastructures and events.
Olympic medalist Alain Bernard, member of the management committee and coach of the NAC, said: “VOGOSCOPE allows you to instantly follow the movements of swimmers underwater, to calculate the position of their arms and legs while swimming, to correct them at the edge of the pool during training, and to debrief them in detail when they go out some water .“
In June 2021, a new VOGOSCOPE service was launched, integrating the “Virtual Seat” solution. This innovation allows event organizers to sell tickets to fans in order to watch sporting events that are not broadcast or televised, thus increasing its commercial potential in France, but also internationally with federations and clubs.
VOGOSCOPE thus has the potential to reinforce the notoriety of sports and events which currently receive little media coverage and offers organizers the possibility of monetizing their events. This kit also responds to new challenges impacting the world of sport, which must now find new channels to interact with fans and imagine new revenue models.
A first significant success in the deployment of this new VOGOSCOPE service was obtained with the Belgian Gymnastics Federation, for the selection of gymnasts for the next Olympic Games and during the FIT Challenge on June 26 and 27 in Ghent.
Go international – ABEO’s global sales network ready to grow
Building on these initial successes, VOGO and ABEO are accelerating the worldwide deployment of their solutions, in Europe and North America.
Bill Wild, Director of ABEO North America, said: “All our teams are now ready to extend the VOGOSCOPE solution and to open new international markets for the ABEO brands by offering our customers the professional capabilities and fans of VOGOSCOPE. These solutions fully respond to the new performance and monetization challenges encountered by the sports markets.“
