Mountain View, U.S.A. - Luminate, Inc., the worldwide leader in making images interactive, and FOXSports.com recently announced a unique image app that provides consumers with instant access to player-related statistics and information by simply mousing over an image. This custom app will be deployed across FOXSports.com including NBA, MLB and NFL galleries.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with FOXSports.com on the next generation of digital sports fan applications,” said Chas Edwards, Luminate CRO and Head of Publisher Development. “Consumers demand greater depth-of-experience from today’s imagesphere, and publishers like FOXSports.com are answering that demand. With more than 3 trillion images online and millions more uploaded each day, developing an image strategy is becoming a top priority for publishers who want to participate in an increasingly visual culture.”
FOXSports.com visitors gain immediate benefit from a scrolling player stats app at the bottom of an image that is directly related to the player within the image. Those who want more information simply mouse over the image to expand a player card of detailed stats and the player’s performance relative to others in the league. All of this takes place directly from an online image.
By adding interactive image apps to previously one-dimensional static images, FOXSports.com’s viewers engage with content that improves their user experience and increases time spent on their site. Additionally, Luminate’s image app brings new life to all of FOXSports.com’s photos regardless of when they were taken because relevant, up-to-date information is embedded in each picture.
“Merging stats with our wide array of sports photos gives fans a wealth of information at their fingertips without having to leave the page,” said Ed Bunnell, FOXSports.com SVP, Programming & Content. “Whether it’s stats from last night’s game or a current player’s historical career performance, photos now come to life and allow fans to interact in a way they’ve never been able to before.”
This new application was co-developed by Luminate and FOXSports.com through Luminate’s custom image app program. Luminate works closely with publishers to enhance their content offerings by developing creative image capabilities that appeal to the needs of specific audiences while also aligning with a publisher’s broader content strategy. The app will be added to the 15 plus other Luminate applications available from Luminate’s Image App store.
