Our Video Analysis software is so powerful and easy to use it can be adapted to fit any analysis situation.

Using the power of SportsCode’s timeline combination feature you can combine as many games together as you wish over weeks months or even years. This allows you to see patterns that are emerging for the team or an individual. If a player is consistently losing his man, you will be able to deduce this from your analysis and back it up with video proof. Using Video Performance Analysis strips away perception and only leaves reality. Knowing exactly what your team and competitors are doing will give you the advantage.

Using SportCode you have complete control over Video Speeds. You can play back in slow motion, frame by frame etc. This helps you identify exactly the passage of play that you are looking for to emphasise your game philosophy.

You also have extremely powerful drawing tools at your disposal. You can easily highlight aspects of play using many combinations of tools. You can reinforce your coaching point by emphasising running lines, lines breaks etc. with these drawing tools.

SportsCode’s Notational Feature is extremely beneficial to performance analysis. With this feature you can annotate your movie clips with notes that are relevant and supplementary to your video. You define the time period you would like your notes to overlay your video. This is beneficial to players as it provides reinforcement of the point you are trying make. It also aids recall for coaches so that they know exactly the point they are tying to make with the movie clip. Click here to see this video annotation in action.

Giving your players correct, accurarte and timely feedback that they can put into practice on the training pitch will help in improving your players. With SportsCode you can easily create high quality, high impact video presentations with drawings and annotations included so your players can reap the benefits of your analysis.

These clips can contain as much or as little information as you would like to include. Go to your timeline and select only the clips that you want to use. Drag these clips to your desktop to make a quicktime player movie which works on all platform/devices. This ensures that the videos can be seen by those who do not have SportsCode as easily as those who do.

These presentation movies can then be easily shared on mobile devices or viewed online on our video management system called youCoach, Sportstec Stream or in a team presentation meeting on a large screen via a multimedia projector. The choice is yours.

Share videos of tactics such as scrums, lineouts, backplay, forwardplay with players so they have visuals to aid the tactics that you are trying to implement.
