Sports science

Team performance depends on effective interplay of team members. Recording and quantitatively analyzing video with The Observer® XT sheds light on individual player effectiveness, and on the way they interact. Measure effective interplay: observe match location, match status, and for instance different on-the-ball behaviors. You can use Pocket Observer if you would like to score behavior live. 

Movement analysis in volleyball

Observation of the way players move and their response time, overall fitness, body strength, and, of course, the overall team performance all help create a more complete picture. Read more about this behavioral analysis in a blog post.
