What is StatBroadcast®
StatBroadcast® Systems is a sports statistics technology and media relations partner for athletic programs and events. We help deliver and distribute real-time statistics information from sports events to a variety of different platforms and audiences.
StatBroadcast® Systems has been providing technology and media relations support for athletic events and programs for the past 13 academic years. It began in its current form in 2004 under the name StatDisplay, with its first two clients, the Fiesta Bowl and Arizona State University, as a media relations partner that assisted with the setup and administration of information technology at athletic events, including specifically live stat monitors for the media and staff. In preparation to host the 2007 BCS National Title Game, StatDisplay became BCS Stats Systems in 2006 and developed the first version of the product known today as StatMonitr.
StatBroadcast®'s launch of its newly designed graphical interface for its stats feeds in 2016 is the fourth generation of its platform, with each generation building and expanding upon the previous while incorporating new technological innovations in web design. The latest platform includes fully responsive ad pages that adapt and resize themselves to fit your screen and even your browser window when you resize it.
Since that time, StatBroadcast® has grown into the leading provider of statistics technologies for collegiate athletics nationwide, and expanded its product lines to include StatMonitr wireless screens, StatMonitr web stats and StatBroadcast® Live for the web, mobile phones and multimedia. StatBroadcast® now provides support for more than 35 college football bowl games, over 250 NCAA athletic programs, has expanded into the NAIA and NJCAA junior college markets and the high school markets at both the regular season and state championship levels, 30 conferences, the College Football Playoffand NCAA championship events, spanning all three Divisions.
