Southland Partners with DVSport for HD Football Instant Replay in 2014

by   |  July 18th, 2014

FRISCO, Texas – The Southland Conference and DVSport, Inc., the leader in collegiate football high-definition (HD) replay technology, have announced a partnership that will provide the league and its 11 football-playing institutions with the cutting-edge technology and efficient workflow of DVSport’s HD Replay™ system beginning with the 2014 season.

DVSport’s system provides replay officials with a crystal-clear picture quality and state-of-the-art controls to assist them with reviewing each and every play. The Southland Conference is the first NCAA Football Championship Subdivision league to implement a full-time instant replay solution for all home games, regardless of television coverage.

DVSport’s HD Replay™ system has made an impact on numerous Southland teams that have qualified and advanced though the NCAA Division I Football Championship in recent years, as all rounds of the playoffs include replay covered by DVSport. In fact, three Southland programs hosted NCAA playoff games in 2013, when the DVSport equipment was installed and used in conjunction with ESPN productions to provide replay for each playoff contest. Additionally, Southland teams often play games against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents that utilize the DVSport equipment.

DVSport Centralizes X Games Replay

by   |  June 23rd, 2014

X Games has joined the rapidly growing “centralized-replay” club, thanks to a new DVSport Software system implemented at CoTA. Instead of being located at each venue as in the past, judges are located in a central replay trailer, which can access every single camera feed available during the ESPN telecast. The DVSport system simultaneously records eight incoming feeds (seven cameras and a dirty program feed) and plays them back in sync for the judges to view as a mosaic on three large monitors.

“We have a few different [on-screen] layouts for the judges, which vary from event to event,” says Justin Rudd, VP/director of sales/marketing, DVSport Software. “We are marking each event and each run that occurs. The judge can then ask to see a specific angle or a whole run again, and we can play it back instantly. We have full control of the video [playback] with a simple [LSM] controller.”

Seahawks Video Director: Behind the scenes of the teams winning strategy

by   |  April 17th, 2014

Brad Campbell and his team of four play a crucial part as team members of the Seattle Seahawks. As Video Director to the Seahawks, Brad and his crew help prepare the weekly game plans by supplying coaches and players with breakdowns of cut-ups and game footage of upcoming opponents, as well as editing practice footage for coaches and players during the week leading up to each game. “If you were to watch our stuff you would probably find it really boring.”.
However boring, the footage is pivotal in teaching, coaching and strategy. Seahawk players are filmed at specific angles; merged together and broken down into Offense, Defense and Special Teams. Game footage and practices are reviewed. Coaches and players watch opposing teams footage looking to devise very specific strategies on the visible strengths and weaknesses of players. They can instantly see why or how a play succeeded or failed.
