New Viz Flowics Data Connectors for wearables, FIBA live stats and college sports
These new connectors provide seamless integration to finance and sports data providers
Content creators know that data is a strong driving force to boost audience engagement. And, Viz Data Connectors, unique to Viz Flowics, makes it easier for producers to add layers of data to graphics to shape content delivery and give viewers statistics that not only informs, but is also interesting and useful.
The catalog of native data integrations is fast approaching 100 providers. In recent weeks, we’ve added a series of new Data Connectors – native integrations that simplify the flow of external live data from different sources into Viz Flowics graphics.
Data Connector Highlights
Insiders Data Connector
Give fans a deeper understanding and insight into the performance levels of elite athletes via their Insider wearable trackers. This data is collated by Insiders.
“The new Insiders Data Connector allows sports content creators to add another layer of data that matters to audiences to their Viz Flowics graphics in a fast, simple and efficient way,” says Viz Flowics co-founder, Gabriel Baños.
The Insiders API provides raw and/or calculated data from athlete wearables in real time, which the Data Connector processes and augments so performance data can be readily incorporated into graphics. It is a frictionless experience for the user.
