SMT provides clients with full-service, turnkey solutions designed to bring producers and patrons the highest level of technical innovation available. Our broadcast and event solutions enable clients to produce a premium, real-time show, whether pregame, in-game or postgame. SMT’s products and services have evolved from our initial clock-and-score graphic in 1994 to innovative and sophisticated virtual graphics, tracking technology, statistical applications and telestration.
SMT was incorporated in 1990 as SportsMEDIA Technology Corporation after its founder and CEO, Gerard J. Hall, developed the first real-time scoring and wireless data delivery system for the PGA TOUR, replacing standard walkie-talkie communication.
