Team Performance Analysis

MatchTracker brings together all the teams' performance data including event, camera based tracking, GPS, biometric and coach and analyst tagging. You can combine this data with multiple video angles so that game moments can be viewed in context and performance can be compared with the opposition, previous games and between players in the team.

Opposition Scouting

Opposition analysis is where MatchTracker really comes into its own. You can view dozens of games at the same time and create custom dashboards and analysis windows for all aspects of play from build up to set pieces and then output video, KPIs, statistics and XMLs of Tags for presentation to the coaches and players.

Multi-Channel Video Recording

There is no substitute for capturing the right video angle for an event. Sometimes the broadcaster will have the best shot but in other situations fixed cameras may provide a better viewpoint.

SBG has scalable recording solutions that can capture any number of video angles all in sync. These can be provided in many different formats such as SDI, DVB, HDMI or IP and viewed on multiple clients over the network.

While recording, users can tag incidents, review them from different camera angles and then share these video clips.

Live Automated Tagging

In the hectic environment of a live game when everyone should be concentrating on the action, MatchTracker can be employed to create custom live tags based on the requirements of the coaches and players. This frees up analysts to support the coach and focus on specific elements that require expert input.

These automatic live tags with labels, metrics and descriptive text can be streamed into the Focus database or shared with popular 3rd party analysis tools.
