Qatar’s Al-Arabi SC chooses ChyronHego Coach Paint to prepare their matches
The coaching staff of second-oldest football club in Qatar, the Al-Arabi SC, has started to use ChyronHego’s Coach Paint video telestration tool to improve the preparation of the team for the upcoming matches.
The technology, similar to the used in professional sports broadcasting, includes an extensive set of tools including player cut-out, spotlight, zoom, player tracking and zone tracking, among others. It also includes a chroma-keyer for placing telestrator graphics without covering field lines, players or the ball. It is also compatible with the TRACAB optical player tracking system from ChyronHego.
“Time and efficiency are everything in our opposition and performance analysis work. We collect and have access to a large quantity of video and data after every match, and we need to turn around high-quality presentations in a short time and under pressure,” said Bjarki Már Ólafsson, first team analyst and coach, Al-Arabi SC. “Coach Paint is the most efficient and effective tool we’ve found for presenting every player from the opposition team to our players, and also for presenting concepts and high-value instruction in a clear and accurate way.”
Craig Inness, sports performance and technology specialist at ChyronHego, also wanted to add: “Working with Al-Arabi has been a great experience. The club has really embraced the Coach Paint technology and has looked to push its boundaries in order to achieve success. Al-Arabi is just the latest success story in our strategy to offer the world’s most comprehensive and powerful graphics solutions for sports tracking and analysis.”
