RCS LaunchPad is an affordable and highly intuitive interactive touchscreen solution that simplifies data and video analysis for soccer broadcasts. The first of its kind anywhere, LaunchPad lets operators call up touchscreen graphics for analysis on the desired league, team, player or match, and seamlessly transition between them instantaneously.

RCS LaunchPad goes everywhere game play goes and is uniquely positioned at the growing multichannel ecosystem of studio-based analysis before, during and after events. Lightweight in nature, the LaunchPad touchscreen can be easily transported to and from event locales as production demands.

Each system arrives tailored with design elements (colors, fonts, logos, backgrounds) that match the client’s aesthetic. Powered by RCS software and plugins, the Viz Engine and a custom-configured third-party touchscreen, LaunchPad’s extensive analytical toolset lets users graphically illustrate live results, tables, fixtures, leaders and more.

One of the more elegant and forward-looking implementations of the company’s RCS DataCenter cloud-based aggregator platform, RCS LaunchPad has the potential to reach viewers and engage fans in new, powerful and increasingly meaningful ways. Culling analytics from Opta’s data feeds, DataCenter also eliminates the overhead of backend integration, supplemental hardware and local database maintenance.
