Infosys (NSE, BSE, NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced an Infosys Topaz-powered artificial intelligence (AI) innovation with MSG Networks as part of its ongoing relationship, which MSG Networks’ can use to enhance coverage of the 2023-2024 Knicks and Rangers seasons across social platforms. The arrangement includes Infosys Topaz AI, data and analytics solutions, as well as its signature ‘AI Highlights’ technology.
Through a set of immersive, smart AI-powered tools, MSG Networks will now be able to curate highlights during and immediately following Knicks and Rangers games this season, with minimal human intervention. This innovative AI technology can quickly analyze a game to generate unique highlight packages that are ready to publish within minutes, whether it’s a clip of an individual player or a video compilation of a certain type of play, such as every slam dunk, assist, goal or save from the game.
“Our technology collaboration with MSG is bringing the fan experience to new heights with AI-powered highlights enabled by Infosys Topaz,” said Rajesh Varrier, EVP, Head of Digital Experience, Infosys. “New York fans expect greatness from their teams and this innovation will give them rapid access to relive exceptional plays and is reflective of MSG’s commitment to making the fan experience unparalleled.”
“We know our fans expect immediate highlights of momentous dunks or goals, and other memorable plays throughout our game coverage, and Infosys’ AI technology will allow us to deliver these types of highlights quickly to our rabid Knicks and Rangers fans,” said Kevin Marotta, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Research for MSG Networks.
The ‘AI Highlights’ tool can also automate the identification of key, shareable moments from the game that will help to increase fan engagement and drive the conversation on social media.
Since November 2021, as MSG’s Digital Innovation partner, Infosys continues to drive cutting-edge technological experiences for stakeholders across select MSG properties including the Knicks, Rangers and the Madison Square Garden Arena.
