Shared Virtual Experience

 

The same CrowdOptic technology which boosts augmented reality capabilities in smartphones is now integrated with wearable devices including Google Glass. CrowdOptic is being used to create networks of multiple devices, connected in real time based on their visual line of sight.

 

These instant networks are joined into live shared experiences. For example, CrowdOptic technology launches instant Google+ Hangouts on Air, where glasses and smartphone viewers merge and share live video feeds of the same action.

Sports Broadcasting

 

CrowdOptic allows sports franchises, event organizers, and broadcasters to stream footage captured by mobile devices (smartphones or wearables) instantaneously to live broadcasts.

 

CrowdOptic software analyzes where devices are aimed in real-time, curates the multitude of available video streams for significance and video quality, and distills all down to a single stream for broadcast to jumbotrons, television and web/social.

Focus Aware Marketing/Advertising

 

The CrowdOptic platform powers a range of focus-aware, interactive applications for marketing, branding and advertising. Enterprises and brands can captivate live audiences and marketers can increase fan engagement with their brand by delivering new experiences that rely on knowing where electronic devices are pointed from moment to moment. These experiences may include augmented reality, chat, poll/vote, find friends, and much more.

Sports Analytics

 

CrowdOptic can quantify what people mean when they talk about an athlete’s “vision.” You know it when you see it, but you could not measure it – until now. CrowdOptic comes into play where smart, wearable devices like Google Glass meet team sports. By outfitting players in smart equipment like Google Glass, we can chart and analyze their fields of vision during active play. We are helping athletic departments deconstruct qualities like intuition and instinct in their players, as well as better analyze the game and create new, analytics-powered teaching tools.

Electronic News Gathering

 

CrowdOptic provides news organizations with the tools to automatically curate crowdsourced content from electronic devices pointed at a specified location, in order to assemble a chronology of authenticated photos and videos of a newsworthy event. Our tools locate the source of heat on a dashboard as well as create a beacon for incoming contributions from that same location. With CrowdOptic Mobile ENG, eyewitnesses are given an instant, direct channel to news outlets to report breaking news in the field, replacing archaic web forms and email methods of news submission with a one-button mobile app that feeds directly into the news outlet or any social media.

Content Curation

CrowdOptic instantly curates large data sets of crowdsourced photo and video content by subject. CrowdOptic works with the photos and videos taken using popular smartphones and cameras by analyzing the standard metadata already embedded in the media.

 

CrowdOptic connects photos and videos by focus, identifying the location of the subject as well as the photographer, and auto-curates for subject, authenticity and relevancy. CrowdOptic technology filters spam and fake photos, enforcing safe and verified content.

TV, tablet and phone

Second Screen

With our second screen capabilities, CrowdOptic social is also accessible to those viewing at home. CrowdOptic-powered applications are accessed interchangeably by Social TV, tablet and smartphone.

 

Fans at home can join into the eyewitness discussion via a split screen broadcast on their Social TV, which they can navigate via their tablet. Smartphone users at a live event can share their experiences and have them broadcast in real time to live audiences at home.

Crowd-sourced security

Security

CrowdOptic Security is helping event organizers and venues detect and respond more quickly to potential incidents and threats. Using cluster detection capability, combined with analytics, CrowdOptic flags phone activity that is anomalous or out of place, and which may represent possible security incidents.

 

A security dashboard allows for constant monitoring of these clusters along with streaming video and text alerts of the possible incident, giving officials the tools to review an incident remotely and spring quickly into action.
