Live Streaming Now Available

Whether Steph Curry wants to work on his footwork, Novak Djokovic is looking to add more spin to his serve, or a high school volleyball player needs to improve their timing, PlaySight technology is delivering a cutting-edge experience to all levels of athletes across the sporting world. Athletes all over the world are playing Smarter with PlaySight.

What is Playsight SmartCourt? 

Playsight SmartCourt is an interactive 4K and HD camera and cloud-based sports system that leverages on-court multiangle video and proprietary analytics to enhance training and performance. Each SmartCourt is connected to the internet and to our cloud - this connection is what turns a regular court into a SmartCourt. SmartCourt footage and data is stored on each athlete’s account, where they can review and share it at any time through the PlaySight app or online.

Watch this really cool video that really explains how this tool will benefit athletes, coaches, and parents who can't attend a tournament, practice, or a camp.

 

What are the benefits for me? 

Coach: Instant, multi-angle video on-court, the ability to create specific clips and save/share/send to players (with audio annotation over top), and Live Streaming allows you to coach remotely and watch sessions that you aren’t able to physically attend.

Player: Review your video just like the pros do, create video clips for recruiting, social media, and to share with family & friends. Live Stream your games and keep up with stats. 

Parents/Spectators not in attendance: You can tune in to watch live video from live streaming cameras at the Star Center, and you can review the video footage afterwards with your child on any mobile device or computer.
