AO Art Ball quality assurance process
AO Metaverse deploys a robust process enabled by Electronic Line Calling Technology used to officiate the matches, an AO Metaverse Interpretation System (AMIS) affection “Houdini”, a triple-validated quality assurance between AMIS and the token ID by blockchain specialists at web3 consultancy Run it Wild, who transfer the meta data to IPFS.
AO Metaverse receives detailed match data from the last point of every match, sent to them directly from the AO, collected by Electronic Line Calling Technology. This is the same data and technology used to officiate Australian Open matches.
AO Metaverse ingests this data into the AO Metaverse Integration System (AMIS) which translates this raw data into a 3D model of the tennis court. Here, it visualises the entire final point from racket to court, velocity and final placement of the ball, to determine the ball placement and its corresponding plot.
Quality Assurance is a triple-validated process
Blockchain specialists at web3 consultancy Run it Wild perform first round, second & third round validation of the AO Metaverse Interpretation System (AMIS) against the token ID.
Meanwhile AO Metaverse generates match point winning stickers for the NFT metadata.
AO Metaverse push updates to IPFS. Each update will have a reference hash on IPFS – all updates are verified with the provenance updated on-chain for perpetuity.
Match point Rules
A match point is defined by the match winning point from the last legal bounce in the court of play.
If the match is determined by a shot that does not land on a plot (e.g. double fault or ‘out’ balls), then we will revert to the last legal bounce inside the court of play (from the winning player).
If more than one match point lands on one plot, then the NFT metadata will be updated accordingly.
Match point improvements
AO Metaverse will be improving the match point experience with filters loading this week. 4
