“Galaxy is a valuable asset to our program. It allows our players to get extra film study on their own and that helps them prepare better for our weekly game plan.“
Former Head Coach at Texas Tech University
DVSport Galaxy is a new web based platform that enables every team, in any sport to deploy video of games, cutups, and scouting to the web for access by coaches, players, and scouts. Galaxy features secure logins, video with playlist data, remote playback, and usage analytics. Galaxy is supported on all the latest browsers for both PC, Mac, and tablet computing devices. Galaxy is designed, and priced to work for any team, you only pay for the number of hours of video you need to store online. There are no additional per user charges.
Customized For Your Team
Once you get your team setup under the Galaxy platform you are free to customize the site to fit your team’s look and feel. This branding includes your logo and game photos as well as providing specific accent colors to use in the site. Continue styling to your team’s look and feel by customizing your play data to the terminology your coaches and players are familiar with. With Photo Show, you can upload high quality images to Galaxy. When coaches, staff, and players login, they will see the Photo Show flip through the images you upload. The photos can be changed by you at any time. Change photos from week to week to show previous year highlights and scores. Recognize players for excellent performance, awards and more.
Our Galaxy product uses modern technology to secure your content to be shared with only the people that you allow access to. If there is any question of your user credentials being compromised, the Galaxy platform records geolocation information to be sure that your users are not sharing your content with unauthorized users.
We respect that your content is private and give you full control over how your organization will receive your content and how much they have access to. You are free to share your content at the user, group, or collective levels. This puts you in control of what your users see when they arrive at your site.
If you are using DVSport GameDay, FastBreak, or PowerPlay with LaunchPad, your practice and game video can be automatically uploaded to your Galaxy team site with video and playlist data. High and standard definition video will be automatically optimized to load video quickly for viewing. Galaxy video is optimized for playback on a computer, laptop, or iPad.
The cutup details screen functions a lot like video details. It allows you to view all of the plays, with their associated data. The plays are sortable by clicking the columns. You can also sort by multiple columns by holding the control key while clicking the column headers. Clicking on a play in the grid displays the name of the video and its thumbnail to the upper left. The next item under plays is a link to watch the cutup. Other functions on this page include editing information, managing tags, and sharing with users and groups. You can see when the video was uploaded, who uploaded it, as well as what date this cutup is relevant to. Date relevant is another customization feature in Galaxy. By setting the date relevant value on a video or a cutup, videos and cutups can be grouped onto specific days on a calendar.
Your game and practice video content is stored on our video distribution servers, making it available to a variety of desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices. You also have the option to let players and coaches download video for offline viewing on their pc or iPad. Getting content to the right people is easy and convenient.
The Analytics Hub is made for the administrators of your team. This is your private look into how your organization is doing up to the minute. This hub allows you to monitor your entire organization on a week to week basis comparing watching time and participation from last week’s numbers. This allows you to determine how well your organization is using Galaxy and find correlations between this information and their performance in a game. Knowledge is power.
Let’s face it, there is more to participation than just watching video. Galaxy rewards users by giving reputation when they perform actions that benefit the organization. Those actions may not always be watching video. Currently, reputation is calculated based on the number of minutes you watch a video as well as the number of comments you provide in a discussion. In the future there will be other ways to earn reputation but the theme will stay the same, Galaxy gives reputation to promote good use of the site. This good use of Galaxy has a direct correlation to user participation.
Every user has access to two calendars in Galaxy. The first one is at the organization level. Administrators can add events to the organization’s calendar, and all users in the organization can see those events. This is useful for things like games, meetings, and practices. You can navigate from month to month, and the calendar days with events will be filled in gray. The selected day is the current primary color you choose for your organization. To the right of the calendar is an agenda of the next five events, starting on the selected day. Underneath the calendar itself is a form for adding new events. Changing the selected date sets the start and end date to make entering a new event easier. There is a header section to both calendars to help you switch between them quickly. The team calendar is a easy to use, and a great way to distribute events to your team.
