The system captures all video angles of training and competitions enabling real-time visualisation of crucial game moments. Key information and incidents are identified by tagging and clipping video.

The software is used across the world in a variety of sports including: Football, Rugby, American Football, Basketball, and Field Hockey. Professional and College teams throughout these sports and many others have invested in their performance analysis infrastructure by implementing video analysis software to empower their coaches and players.

The benefits to Boston College Field Hockey
Our clients, Boston College Field Hockey has been using our video analysis software solution, Focus, to monitor and improve performance since last season, “Focus has allowed us to really enhance our level of video analysis within the Boston College Field Hockey program,” said BC Field Hockey Assistant Coach Mark Foster.
“The data that we can analyse and the tools available in the presentation mode have enabled us to streamline our scout reports and game reviews in order to present the most efficient and easy-to-understand information to our players.
“We’ve also benefited from the use of the Focus Server, due to Covid there has been a lack of available staff members so being able to share a package live from our video tower to the bench live in-game has given us the advantage to be able to make the key changes necessary in a simpler way.”
Focus video analysis software is designed to help both coaches and players improve their performance. Coaches need to be efficient with their time and the speed at which performance analysts can package up the video analysis from Focus allows decisions to be made quickly.
Video analysis software offers the players a new perspective on their performance, highlighting both positives and negatives which can then be worked on in future training sessions. As with all our clients our objective is to help teams understand how they are performing and to provide them with the tools to process their data, make informed decisions, that will lead to more effective training interventions and ultimately successful performances.
