With millions of dollars on the line, sports teams are demanding the latest technology to maximize their players' performance. Whether it's wearable sensors with GPS capability or motion-tracking cameras capable of capturing 25 images per second, the science of athletics has moved beyond heart-rate monitors and into the world of big data and analytics.

Representatives from some of the world's leading firms - including the global leader in athlete analytics, Catapult, and the motion-tracking company behind the NBA stats revolution, SportVU - will talk about how their products are changing the sports world and what lies ahead with Kirk Goldsberry, a Harvard scholar best known for his in-depth analysis of the NBA for Grantland. This session is part of the brand new SXsports programming at SXSW 2014.
