Coaching powered by Hawk-Eye Innovations
With continuing advancements in
data capture and storage, vast amounts of data are stored and analysed by
performance analysts and coaches at all levels of sport. The coaching products
offered by Hawk-Eye are pushing the boundaries of capturing the data (‘the what’)
and combining it with the video (‘the why’) in a seamlessly synchronised
manner. This allows for a real-time coaching tool to aid immediate feedback to coaches
and players by providing truly insightful analysis of the captured data.
Examples of the coaching tool in action will be demonstrated.
Innovation and pushing boundaries is part of the Hawk-Eye ethos, and consequently the company is continually moving into new sports including Badminton, Horse Racing, NASCAR and Athletics within the past year alone. Which sports will benefit next?
