How to drive player development using real-time video for courtside feedback

Video is an important aid in helping players to fulfill their potential, but timing is crucial.

Visual feedback delivered before the buzzer sounds can be put into practice immediately, increasing the likelihood that players will take it in and use it to improve their game. This is what Spiideo Perform has provided Virginia Tech’s basketball teams: an efficient recording and analysis solution that enables coaches to deliver instant feedback, supported by video, from the sidelines.

Live, multi-angle AI capture

This is provided by Spiideo’s market-leading automated cameras, which record the team’s training sessions in 4K quality and keep track of the ball using advanced AutoFollow technology to ensure every important moment is captured. With footage instantly uploaded to the NCAA Division I college’s own video solution, as well as Spiideo’s cloud-based analysis platform, Spiideo Perform, coaches can play back events through an iPad device just seconds after they occur on the court. With four Spiideo cameras installed throughout the gym, capturing two overhead half-court views and full-court views of both its men’s and women’s courts, coaches can switch between multiple angles within a single recording to deliver effective feedback from the clearest viewpoint.

It’s really good from a player development standpoint in terms of showing our players what they did right or wrong right away on the floor. We didn’t have that ability before.
