Valencian company obtains the validation of the NBA to be able to make a commercial use of the BIG DATA.
NBN23 technology has achieved for the first time for a Spanish company the validation of the NBA, the most important league in the world that starts today with the Toronto Raptors-New Orleans Pelicans. This new milestone of the Valencian startup means having the approval of the NBA, which brings together 30 franchises from the United States and Canada, to make proper use of its technology related to BIG DATA. At the same time, NBN23 will be able to negotiate with NBA franchises to obtain and implement in its equipment the advances that it has been developing since 2015.
Performance, a product validated by the NBA, allows obtaining all kinds of data related to players during a match or training thanks to a 2-centimeter chip implanted in the shirt, pants or shoes, which transmits the information through repeaters of frequency installed in the pavilion. Areas of influence, average speed, jump power, fatigue, etc., are just some of the data that can be collected and that serve to improve the performance of a team, take advantage of resources and even prevent injuries.
The validation assumes the security for the NBA teams that the data obtained will be treated correctly and that they also comply with the requirements of the NBPA (National Basketball Players Association).
Miguel Bullón, executive director of NBN23, believes that the validation of the NBA will be a turning point for the company founded in 2015. “We had been working for a long time and this means a great effort from a whole team of 30 people. From now on, we will try to make the whole world take advantage and see how technology improves basketball, ”he says. “We are also implementing another new product, Competition, with which we intend, through the digitization of matches, to have a large database so that amateurs and professionals can know in real time or in deferred what happens in any amateur or professional tournament,” he adds.
NBN23 has its technology implemented in the United States, China, Mexico, Turkey, Belgium and Spain.
