Jimmy Kimmel Partners With Caesars Entertainment To Open Comedy Club At The LINQ Promenade Spring 2019Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club Will be an Intimate, Two-Story Venue Featuring Curated Acts Nightly

 

Next spring, Caesars Entertainment will open Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club at The LINQ Promenade in Las Vegas.

In partnership with Caesars Entertainment, the new club will showcase comedians ranging from up-and-coming talent to household names curated by Kimmel and his team in a venue designed by Jimmy and his comedian friends.

“Building a club like this in my hometown is a dream come true” said Kimmel, who grew up in Las Vegas. “I’ve done extensive research, consulting with veteran comics to create the ideal venue for comedians and comedy lovers.  My aim is to capture the spirit of classic Vegas with late night shows, surprise guests, live music, memorabilia from my career and food that will rival the finest restaurants in town.  Every comic who plays this club will get first-class treatment.  I am obsessing over every detail to make this the most comedy-friendly club in the world.”

At 8,000 square feet, the venue will be the optimal setting for both comedy talent and the audience, with an expandable showroom that seats up to 300 guests.  The club will be open seven nights a week, with a bar open daily and shows offered nightly.

“We are elated by the opportunity to collaborate with Jimmy Kimmel on his first and only comedy club,” said Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment. “As the leader in establishing iconic residencies in Las Vegas, we are creating this club to be an innovative and exceptional live comedy venue. Of course, Kimmel’s longtime Las Vegas affinity means he understands the city and what audiences want to see. Together, we look forward to delivering a top-quality comedy experience on the Las Vegas Strip.”

Caesars Entertainment is known for revitalizing the modern era of entertainment in Las Vegas with its record-breaking headlining residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The Colosseum has offered a diversified, top-flight comedy lineup since introducing Jerry Seinfeld in 2003, leading to other top comedians in the venue including Sebastian Maniscalco, Steve Martin and Martin Short, Jim Gaffigan and Jeff Dunham. The company has consistently been at the forefront of entertainment and has set a high standard for Las Vegas, one that has forced others in the industry to follow. As a result of Caesars Entertainment’s innovation and impressive lineup, the company was recognized as the third-largest promoter of live entertainment worldwide by Billboard Magazine in 2016 and 2017.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club will bring yet another unique experience to The LINQ Promenade, thus rounding it out to be the epicenter for dining, retail and entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Shaun Swanger, senior vice president of attractions, retail and leasing for Caesars Entertainment.

The latest addition to The LINQ Promenade, Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club will be located across from Brooklyn Bowl, and near the High Roller – the largest observation wheel in the world.

Additional details regarding Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club will be announced later this year.

FeedConstruct revolutionizes live scouting with AJNA

FeedConstruct revolutionizes live scouting with AJNAReading Time: 2 minutes

 

 The data feed solutions provider of BetConstruct presented a more refined and accurate solution for data scouting.

 

Contemplating the ways of providing sporting data in a faster and more efficient manner, the company developed a feed solution enhanced with AI/ML called AJNA which was unveiled at Sportel Monaco. Translated as a third eye, it is an augmented live video streaming which recognizes gameflow of the sporting events, providing advanced player tracking in live mode and collecting more technical data to create new unique markets to bet on.

“Machine learning penetrates IT sectors and as a forward-looking company, we seek the ways to infuse our solutions with methods of automated data analysis. The concept of our solution bares its roots for Hindu tradition, the third-eye chakra called AJNA specifically. The on-field observation of a scout provides rather accurate data, whereas the augmented streaming reveals insights to the gameflow that a human eye can’t see. With AJNA, we enrich our sports betting offering with additional augmentation and a more statistical data gathered.” – commented our Founder and CEO Vigen Badalyan.

The solution consists of a single or double camera setup. As they deliver the streaming, AJNA solution does an auto field geometry detection from the video. Within a few minutes, the powerful eye of FeedConstruct identifies field scheme and corners having video frames transformed and sent to the tracking system one by one. Right after, players and ball detection comes into force. AJNA does a custom clusterization on sequences of images for each detected player in order to classify them to a team or referee group. During the match, AJNA recognizes full gameflow including events like ball possession, danger and many more. It also offers an extended personal tracking like player’s speed or distance run per game. Such collected statistics can be converted into a number of exciting markets to bet on.

As for now, FeedConstruct has developed AJNA to provide a full live on-field coverage of football with a further intention to expand the coverage for more sports types.

 

FeedConstruct is a digital content provider offering real-time data feed solutions perfectly tailored to capture and entertain any audience. Among our solutions is

Friendship platform, an exclusive offer for federations and sports content providers allowing them to deliver streamings from events to 300+ betting operators to purchase. FeedConstruct’s Live Scouts’ reporting combines fast and secure communications to provide accurate and reliable information. Based on our scouts’ reporting, we also provide highly efficient Odds Feed service. For a wide variety of sports data we have Statistics service. To perfectly engage any audience, we provide Live Sports Video Streaming service.

Sportradar releases official response to Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis

Sportradar releases official response to Independent Review of Integrity in TennisReading Time: 3 minutes

 

Sportradar, the world’s leading provider of data, content and integrity solutions, has published its response to the Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis report, released in April this year, which proposed recommendations for addressing the sport’s integrity issues.

 

Within the response, Sportradar has supported the majority of the Panel’s recommendations but outlined concerns in relation to the recommendation regarding the discontinuance of data sales, stating that this approach would not only fail in practice but would cause further risk to the integrity of the game, with potentially irreversible consequences.

Sportradar Managing Director Group Operations, David Lampitt explained the factors outlined within the company’s response.

“Attempting a total data black-out on a sport has never been done, or even trialed or tested before. Counter evidence and expert analysis indicate that such an approach is likely to have a harmful effect on integrity, which would be hard to reverse if unsuccessful.

“So, the Panel is staking its reputation, and that of the sport, on an uncertain ‘guess’, when there is good evidence that a different approach and an incremental process of implementing enhanced and targeted measures would be more likely to deliver successful outcomes and integrity benefits.

“If the recommendations remain unchanged, they would push the betting market underground where the integrity issues would be out of sight. This may give the veneer of improving the situation but would not deal with the underlying issues. These must not be brushed under the carpet.

“It’s important to point out that the relative risk that the Review attributes to the different levels of tennis is also misleading. In 2017, and consistently over the last four years, ITF tennis has, in fact, had the lowest risk of corruption across all the levels of the professional game, including the Grand Slams.

“Of course, integrity risks exist across all levels. But they are most prevalent at the mid-level of the Men’s game, so the rationale for applying the most draconian measures to the ITF Men’s and Women’scompetitions and recommending relatively modest changes at the other levels doesn’t tally with the evidence.

“Ultimately our interests, like the Panel’s and other stakeholders involved, including the tennis governing bodies as well as the betting companies, are focused on safeguarding a clean sport. We want to be transparent about our submissions as we believe the evidence is important to ensure decisions are not taken that may have unintended and harmful consequences for the sport.”

Sportradar’s recommendations outlined within the response to the Review include:

  1. Implement a proactive tennis-wide approach to restricting data distribution, targeting specific matches with an elevated risk of corrupt activity based on a consistent and analysis-led evaluation. This is something that Sportradar is doing as part of their integrity partnership with the ITF
  2. Create a new body made up of representatives from tennis, betting operators and sports data companies to ensure a more concerted and collective approach to fighting corruption in tennis across related operational areas that should include the application of the above targeted data restrictions
  3. Increase AV streaming coverage, where possible, to help provide reliable evidence
  4. Create new regulations to enable quicker sanctioning based on betting data and expert player analysis
  5. Bring in targeted measures to deal with online abuse of players, especially at lower levels, enabling players to escalate concerns
  6. Use technology to target risks, streamline processes, maximise impact and enhance intelligence-led enforcement action

The Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis was released on 25 April this year after the tennis international governing bodies, the ATP, the WTA, the ITF and the Grand Slam Board appointed an Independent Review Panel to address betting related and other integrity issues facing the sport in early 2016.
