We recently had the pleasure of running a product demonstration of our new “computer vision” beta software at Volta DemoCamp 2021 – working name OptaVid. What is OptaVid? It’s an online algorithm that leverages your expertise as a coach or player, using it to automatically scan game footage to identify the parts of the video that show the goal area. It’s still in early development but we believe it has the potential to be a powerful tool for saving coaches time. In tests, we’ve found that it can condense a typical 90 minute game down to an average of 20 minutes or so of goalkeeper footage.
