Sports analytics is a growing area of interest, both from a computer system view to manage the technical challenges and from a sport performance view to aid the development of athletes. In this paper, we present Bagadus, a prototype of a sports analytics application using soccer as a case study. Bagadus integrates a sensor system, a soccer analytics annotations system and a video processing system using a video camera array. A prototype is currently installed at Alfheim Stadium in Norway, and in this paper, we describe how the system can follow and zoom in on particular player(s). Next, the system will playout events from the games using stitched panorama video or camera switching mode and create video summaries based on queries to the sensor system. Further- more, we evaluate the system from a systems point of view, benchmarking different approaches, algorithms and trade-offs.
