Accedo Partners with Magnifi to Bring AI-powered Sports Highlights to Accedo Launcher

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Global video solutions provider, Accedo, announced it has partnered with Magnifi by VideoVerse, an AI-driven video technology company and powerful video-editing SaaS platform, to bring AI-powered sports highlights to its Android TV framework, Accedo Launcher. The integration means that Accedo Launcher customers can now provide end users with AI-powered sports highlights and key moments, in an efficient, and cost-effective way.

Accedo Launcher is a Google certification-ready, specialist product framework that enables global TV operators to replace the standard Android TV Operator Tier Launcher with a consistent set-top box Android TV experience that is customized to their brand.
This integration of Magnifi by Videoverse into Accedo Launcher seamlessly connects Magnifi’s AI-powered processes with Accedo’s customers’ sports video content. Magnifi by Videoverse enables content owners and right-holders to extract automated AI-powered highlights and key moments from sports events for delivery to end users. As an AI-powered tool, it is both efficient and cost-effective, and being cloud-native, it enables seamless integration into video workflows.

Bleuenn Le Goffic, VP Strategy and Business Development, Accedo, commented: “There is a growing demand from sports fans for real-time access to short-form videos showing highlights and key moments from sports events. This integration will enable Accedo Launcher customers to improve engagement by meeting that demand, in a cost-effective way. As more TV operators and broadcasters move to cloud-based workflows, seamless integration has become a critical requirement, and this partnership delivers on that front too.”

Meghna Krishna, CRO, Magnifi by VideoVerse, added: “This collaboration between Accedo and Magnifi will not only enhance users’ workflow efficiency but will also improve sports fans’ engagement while delivering the required content. With our AI-powered platform, we’re committed to empowering customers to meet the evolving demands of sports fans by providing real-time highlights and short videos”.
