Digital Video Analysis

video analysis

Video analysis is regularly used with members of the United States Olympic teams, Professional sport teams, and major university athletic programs. Programs such as these use this technology to produce and retrieve streams of video or still photos that can be used by coaches and athletes to evaluate performances. The video clips can be viewed frame-by-frame or streamed together to examine specific components of any movement or athletic skill. These “frames” or "streamed clips" can be used to provide feedback about motor performance and to help the athlete make necessary adjustments. This technology can be used to compare an athlete’s good and bad performances or contrast a successful and unsuccessful athlete to assist in the development of specific skills. In addition, such video clips can be archived and a database developed to track progress over time.
