Match Analysis Expands Global Operations Center
State of the Art Offices for Market Leader in Video and Statistical AnalysisFor Immediate Release: June 21, 2013 EMERYVILLE - Match Analysis, the leading provider of video and statistical analysis for football (soccer) announced today the expansion of its Global Operations Center. Citing a rapid acceleration in business associated with the launch of its K2 Plus Panoramic Camera System, Match Analysis has taken the entire upper floor of historic 5755 Horton adjacent to its existing facility and centrally located in the high tech hub of Emeryville. The new premises will enable Match Analysis to accommodate its rapidly expanding workforce and a growing demand for its high-tech video analysis and statistical tools. The facility is purpose built for Match Analysis's state of the art data collection and tracking operation while also providing overflow support for Match Analysis's software development and K2 Panoramic Camera System manufacturing. The site doubles Match Analysis's existing operational capacity and is the first phase of the company's strategic expansion. Emeryville, California is a historic city on the east side of the San Francisco Bay nestled between Berkeley and Oakland and home of Pixar, the digital animation studio. The city's proximity to the University of California and Silicon Valley make it an ideal site for technology companies looking to leverage access to the best minds in the field, and a perfect site for Match Analysis to host its Global Operations Center. "Our existing offices were bursting at the seams. Doubling the size of our headquarters allows us to continue to deliver world class service and the fastest turnaround times available without compromising quality," said Match Analysis Director of Operations Oscar Valadez. "We're growing very rapidly, we're moving quickly to meet the demand, and we like keeping our clients one step ahead of the competition. It's an exciting time." Match Analysis president and founder, Mark Brunkhart, described the step as simultaneously incremental and exponential: "There is a growing recognition that video and statistical analysis has been limited by the relatively narrow focus of some of the existing players in the market. Data for data's sake is dead. With this recognition, the interest in Match Analysis's product line and its tight integration with video, communication, and visualization has increased exponentially. Our ability to help connect with players, coaches, sponsors, and fans at a deeper level is second to none. We enjoy the challenge of keeping up with this demand, and our new facility is a critical home base from which we plan to keep delivering the best products to the most forward thinking teams and leagues in the world."
