PK SwimCoach - Underwater Video Camera Training Analysis
SwimCoach has been designed with the help of qualified swimming coaches to help assist pupils in perfecting their stroke.
SwimCoach allows the user to watch and analyse the pupil as they swim from under the waterline without getting wet themselves. The coach can view the swimmer in real time from the poolside and with the help of the camera spot any mistakes or areas in need of improvement.
The SwimCoach camera is completely waterproof and is mounted on a telescopic pole which enables you to use the camera at different depths. The camera mount bracket lets you choose the angle you want the camera set at, ie pointing up, pointing down, parallel or somewhere in between!
The system works by relaying a live image from the camera unit which is displayed on the viewing monitor (also supplied) as you use the equipment during the lesson. This will enable you to see what the camera sees thus allowing full analysis of all aspects of the stroke technique.
Some coaches have requested the ability to record the live video in order to play it back to the pupil for both a keepsake and for the benefit of pointing out improvements or mistakes directly from the video analysis. We therefore offer this as an upgrade option.
Video is recorded in AVI format and this is compatible with all PC and MAC video players. It is also possible to play it back immediately on the poolside using the viewing monitor.
Depending on your requirements we can often customise the system with extras. For example some of of our customers wish to have a voice recording of the coach overlaid onto the video in real time to give a running commentary or make comments regarding improvements etc. This is popular for those who run coaching days or weekends and wish to send the swimmer home with a copy of the footage to keep (often by simply using multiple SD Cards). Other options have included a real time output to a large screen for viewing by a larger group or even direct to a scoreboard. Whatever your requirements let us know and we'll be happy to discuss what we can build with you.
