  • Launched just 6 months ago, Linius’ automated highlights solution is gaining market momentum, now deployed with 3 customers. This is a well-established market with existing need and customer budgets. Linius’ solution has clear competitive advantage which is being recognised by customers and other vendors creating both direct customer growth and potential to scale through partnership/integration with leading providers
              - In the webinar, Linius showcased an example of an automated highlights video from customer PBC
  • Customer Hockey Technology Partners (HTP) continues to scale with Linius as an enabler of this growth. Under the existing master services framework, HTP recently expanded into the USA Hockey National Championships, one of the largest amateur hockey tournaments in the US. This creates scale opportunities with USA Hockey for next season, growth through newly released features, and additional federations.
  • Linius is also scaling through industry partnerships. A new integration agreement was signed with Avid, the leading video editing software provider, which will see Linius Whizzard available within their solutions. This is an example of industry leaders now seeking to work with Linius.
