KIRKSVILLE, Mo. - Amzeal -- DDSports Inc. (ShotTracke (https://shottracker.com/)r), a revolutionary sports technology that captures rich performance data via sensors and provides statistics and analytics with sub-second latency, today announced an $11M USD funding round led by Evertz Technologies Limited ("Evertz") and Verizon Ventures.

ShotTracker brings elite-level real time analytics to the court. The company's patented technology tracks data in three parts: a ShotTracker-enabled ball, sensors on players' jerseys, and court sensors that map the court in 3D. Data is processed through the company's proprietary algorithm displayed on the ShotTracker app and dashboard and will also be integrated with Evertz cloud based live production solutions. The real time data can be used to automate camera productions from remote locations and can be licensed by media and sports data companies.
