Francis Potter from Adobe sent over the annoucement from Yottapixel:
An engineering team at Adobe has been working for a few months on the Tracker. Many of the team members worked in 1998–2001 at Quokka Sports, a dot.com-era startup which pushed the envelope at the time with live sports coverage. In many ways, the Amgen Tour Tracker represents the culmination of what that team was trying to accomplish years ago.
Some of the stylistic elements in the Tour Tracker pick up where Quokka left off. The live video feed resizes to fit the user’s browser — even if that means the video is pixelated. Data, commentary, and image thumbnails are overlayed on the edges of the video, sometimes obscuring the action. There are lots of shades of grey in the interface. The end result delivers a rough, cluttered look which emphasizes the liveness, urgency, and experimental nature of the medium.
