Pittsburgh, PA – DVSport, Inc., a market leader in digital video acquisition, editing, and replay has partnered with Lynx System Developers, Inc., a Haverhill, MA based global sports technology leader, to integrate real time player tracking, robotic cameras, and statistical information with existing coaching solutions for the sports industry. The IsoLynx tracking system technology from Lynx provides a vast base of real time statistical and video transmission that complements and enhances DVSport’s existing coaching solutions. Together, the companies will combine their existing deployed products to co-develop a comprehensive player tracking and analysis solution that not only pinpoints player participation and positioning metrics in real time, but also provides the basis for an ongoing statistical database for athletes and coaches.
DVSport provides proven software solutions that, in conjunction with Lynx technology, will enable coaches, trainers, medical staff, and players to evaluate and assess relevant data in real time and review trends. IsoLynx provides a proven wireless tracking system, using lightweight and durable transmitters that allows position data to be broadcast in real time. “Imagine being able to tell recruits that everything they do during their entire college career will be captured in isolation video correlated with accurate statistics about their performance,” says Edward Evansen, CEO of Lynx.
“It’s time for sports organizations to fully utilize real time information gathering, tracking and data analysis technology to enhance player performance. By decreasing the feedback loop, and providing meaningful and useful information about performance and injury rehabilitation, DVSport and Lynx see this as an evolutionary step in mission critical information for sports teams,” says Brian Lowe, President and CEO of DVSport.
Having access to additional data metrics, individual and team video feeds, and statistics in real time will change how teams train, coach, and even administer medical attention, as well as highlight new opportunities for the use of such, including using it as core database information for DVSport’s coaching tools and existing global statistic engines. In addition, this technology will enable broadcast partners and fans to gain new insight into player performance and coaching strategies.
“The possibilities are endless,” says Lowe. “We no longer have to imagine or approximate how fast someone is running or where they were located at a given moment during the game.” All of this information can be transmitted directly from the athletes themselves, using next generation software analysis tools that will seamlessly integrate into DVSport’s current market-leading solutions.
Consistency, accuracy, distribution and portability are paramount to this technology offering. With a combination of web-based and mobile solutions, DVSport and Lynx are prepared to deliver innovative solutions based on proven and deployed technologies. “By working with DVSport’s extensive existing customer base, Lynx believes that the addition of IsoLynx will usher in a new age in statistical information gathering – at all levels of sport. Lynx believes that this partnership with DVSport presents the opportunity to deploy the latest technology in a way that is consistent with the Lynx philosophy of actively collaborating with market leaders in a given sports vertical,” says Evansen.
