The Washington Wizards basketball team has deployed the Coach Paint telestration tool of ChyronHego throughout the 2018-19 season of the NBA league. The solution had helped coaches to communicate key coaching points during pregrame video presentations to the players. According to the company, Coach Paint is used by leagues and sports teams to teach advanced concepts, simulate game situations and reinforce correct technique.
Jimmy Bradshaw, video coordinator at Washington Wizards, explains how the software is helping the team: “Using ChyronHego’s Coach Paint, our staff can quickly and easily enhance video to demonstrate and reinforce coaching points. The tool is simple and intuitive, making it easy to use familiar visual effects to help players understand key concepts going into a game. It has become an integral part of our pregame routine.”
“The Wizards are among several teams in the NBA that are pioneering in their use of telestration. The team’s video analysis process meets the high standard we see on broadcast television, and level of quality and accuracy can only help the coaching staff and players to achieve success” said James Clarke-Reed, head of sports performance and technology solutions at ChyronHego.
