The ability to process information from the analyst, directly to coaches and players in real time is crucial in both saving time and being able to make tactical modifications to your coaching outcomes instantaneously. An automated workflow from capture, to coding, to review is required to best utilize the ability to work effectively in real time.

There are two key areas where live analysis and review are extremely valuable - on the training ground, and live on match day.

Training Ground Analysis

Let's begin with an example of a high performance workflow from the training ground:

Capture video live:

Capture single or multiple video angles from an IP stream or from an HD/4K camera, typically routed via a network from a central location. IP cameras can include remote control options to fit customer needs.

Code video live:

Breakdown live video by tagging events and other key moments according to team philosophy, training aspects of the game plan, individual player development plans and fitness or rehab requirements. Tag using Hudl Sportscode or Hudl Coda.

Review live:

Transmit tagged video and data from Hudl Sportscode to the pitch where it can be streamed using the Hudl Replay app. Review clips during breaks between drills.

Distribute video and tagged data:

Add training video and tagged data to Hudl for independent review on the web or Hudl mobile app. Use training video to review individual, unit and team aspects of training related to the game plan and generate evidence for player individual development plans. Also share best practices with coaches throughout the club, across all age groups if required.

Case Study: Hudl Pro Suite Brings Innovation to Training Ground Analysis

The power of our partnership with Belgian football is not just restricted to the match day - it also improves the analysis of training sessions.

We visited Club Brugge’s training ground, where Hudl cameras are installed high above their training pitches to allow for live tagging and analysis of training sessions in the same manner that would take place during a live match scenario.

“We look to program the cameras and I sometimes manually control with the joystick where we need to film. We also tag live, and the vision is to have live footage on the field as well to give immediate feedback”. John Bessell, Lead Performance Analyst, Club Brugge.

Match Day Live Analysis

With the training ground workflow covered, let's dive into what a high performance workflow on match day would include.

Capture video live:

Capture single or multiple video angles from an IP stream or from a HD/4K camera, typically routed via a network from a central location. IP cameras can include remote control options to fit customer needs.

Code video live:

Breakdown live video by coding events and other key moments according to team philosophy and game plan primarily using Hudl Sportscode

Video may also be on demand from coaching staff on the bench via an audio link. 

Hudl Coda may be used as a secondary collaborative tagging option.

Review live:

Transmit tagged video and data from Hudl Sportscode to the bench area where it can be streamed using the Hudl Replay app. Create playlists for further review using Replay.

Halftime / Fulltime review:

Coaching staff review key moments via playlists in Hudl Sportscode and/or Hudl Replay. Key clips are shown to players on a laptop, Hudl Replay and/or a large screen in the locker room. When multiple video angles are being recorded in the ‘Capture video live’ stage these can be reviewed in the locker room to add more context.
