PARIS, June 12 – Pixellot, the global leader of AI-automated sports video and analytics solutions, is excited to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Chartres Métropole Innovations Numériques (CM’IN) a leading Telco and utilities company, marking the first smart sports city collaboration of its kind in France. This strategic alliance aims to democratize sports media access and revolutionize the way local sports are available to the public.
