Tepromark, a staple in the American flooring and matting industry for more than 40 years, was formerly a distributor of Plastex's matting and flooring products.

Our philosophy of working with distributors is still foremost and we look forward to transitioning all the end users to new master distributors best suited to service them." Plastex will service all existing and new customer inquiries for the matting ranges, including Teproflow, Teprohold and Gridlock, initially from its manufacturing facility in Alabama.

Atlanta & Tel Aviv, 25 May 2017 – PlayOn! Sports, America’s leading high school sports media company, and Pixellot, the leading provider of automated sports production solutions, today announced a partnership to bring automated sports production to U.S. high schools. By deploying Pixellot’s unmanned cost effective systems, high schools can now affordably cover any game and broadcast on the NFHS Network.
Operated by PlayOn! Sports, the NFHS Network brings together the National Federation of High Schools, state athletic associations, and member high schools. Covering more than 35,000 events produced in 2016, the network is the largest destination for high school sports broadcasts in the country. Even with member associations and schools producing mostly playoff and championship events, 90% of the 4 million high school games remain uncovered.
By introducing Pixellot’s automated production system, PlayOn! Sports enables schools to break the cost barrier and extend coverage to any game played on their home courts. The fixed installed system deploys computer vision technology to seamlessly capture and produce games without the need for a video crew. Game footage is automatically streamed to the NFHS Network portal where it can be watched live or on demand.
“Our partnership with Pixellot is a quantum leap toward comprehensive coverage of the high school sports experience,” says David Rudolph, CEO at PlayOn! Sports. “We’re already deploying Pixellot systems for basketball, soccer, volleyball, lacrosse and wrestling broadcasts, and will soon extend automated coverage into additional sports.”
Doug Billman, President, Pixellot USA, adds: “We’re excited to partner with PlayOn! Sports and its NFHS Network, the leading players in the U.S. high school sports media space. Our automated systems democratize sports broadcasts and will enable nearly 8 million of players and 50 million fans to engage with the high school teams they cheer for.”
Pixellot offers automated sports production solutions that provide affordable alternatives to traditional video capture, production and distribution systems for both professional and amateur sport events. Pixellot’s patented technology solution streamlines production workflow by deploying an unmanned multi-camera system in a fixed rig, with additional angles as required, to cover the entire field, offering a stitched panoramic image. Advanced algorithms enable automatic coverage of the flow of play and highlight generation. Pixellot was founded at 2013 by Dr. Miky Tamir and Gal Oz, bringing extensive experience in broadcasting and media technologies, as well as in sports technology. Pixellot systems are deployed by broadcasters, production companies, clubs, sports portals and coaching solution providers around the globe. For more information: www.pixellot.tv
