Pixellot, the leading provider of AI-driven sports production solutions, has signed a strategic partnership with China’s Internet giant, Baidu. The agreement includes the installation of 200 Pixellot systems in venues across China, with a goal to install an additional 6000 systems over the next three years. The new partnership will further expand Baidu’s involvement in China’s sports market.
Pixellot’s award-winning technology automatically captures, produces, and streams games at any level, from youth leagues to professional teams without the need for a camera operator. Using innovative AI-powered cameras to track the ball and players throughout the game, Pixellot ensures that every key moment is captured and available for fans. Pixellot also offers a sports analytics and video breakdown solution that analyses games and players, offering analytics for review and highlights, and enabling coaches to improve team performance and teach more effectively.
Pixellot’s technology is used in 27,000+ venues across the world and has already produced and streamed more than 2 million games. The goal of the project is to provide local communities a way to engage with local teams and competitions, as well as promote participation and a healthy and sportive lifestyle.
Director Mr. Liu Gang of the Chengdu Event Operation center commented, “We are excited to be part of this innovative project that will revolutionize China’s sports market. It is a unique opportunity for us to collaborate with Pixellot and Baidu, and we are looking forward to the project’s success.”

We see huge potential for growth in China’s sports market, and this partnership is a significant step towards realizing that potential.”

We believe that our technology solutions will be a game-changer for sports fans and families around the county,” said Pixellot CEO Alon Werber.
The new project will be officially launched through an event in Chengdu on March 14th. The local Chengdu government, Baidu, Pixellot, and a local SaaS and OTT provider are directly involved in the project’s launch and will be part of the event and press conference.
