Game Data Live Scenarios


Game Data Live can be used in many scenarios. You can implement a little or a lot. You can start out simple and move up to complex when you're ready. Implementation is flexible.

Gather Lots of Play Data Fast

A team statistician can use Game Data Live to gather play data. With the iPad's touch interface and scrolling lists for data entry, you can enter a lot of data fast. The data can be imported into Hudl after the game. You can enter a little data or up to 24 variables per play. The Hudl export can include 21 variables. Stats and Scouting Reports can be viewed or transmitted as PDFs by email or AirDroped to coaches or the media. You'll be surprised how fast data entry is.

View Video at Half Time

Use the iPad's camera or an MPEG-4 camcorder to capture video. Sync the statistician's data to video. Plays are identified by the play data so you can find and view significant plays fast.

In 2014, Saline High School in Michigan gathered play data during the first half, plugged a camcorder's SD card into their iPad, started importing MPEG-4 video into the iPad's Photos app, walked to the locker room, synced the video with their Game Data Live game and started viewing with a projector in 4 minutes.

View Video on the Side Line

One person can shoot video, enter Team, Quarter, Down, Distance, Run/Pass/Kick and play results and then transport that iPad to the sideline after a possession change. Coaches and players review, make corrections and adjustments. We call this SneakerNet.

Use a Network in the Pressbox

One person can shoot video and enter basic data and share those with other coaches in the pressbox. Networking within the pressbox is relatively simple. Coaches see a play list for the entire game and can easily find plays and their video from the last possession.

View - 2 iPads + WiFi - Demonstration Video

In 2015, a Kansas City high school team shot HD video from the roof of their press box and shared it with two coaches inside the press box. Their network consisted of a WiFi router and a flash drive. Their video was delivered in about 6 seconds after a play finished.

Expand The Network to the Sideline

Use a high performance network to share your play data and video in the press box and on the sideline. You can use a WiFi router, a network server, ethernet cable, and access points to make your network fast, reliable and robust.

A Utah HS team reviewed plays on a TV behind their bench with Game Data Live in 2014. In 2015 they watched HD video on their TV at home and away games. Their network consists of a router, flash drive and a directional access point.

Video Review on the Sideline

The Saline High School football team in Saline Michigan used their WiFi network to transmit HD video to coaches in all 11 games of their 2015 season. At home, they provide HD video to two iPads in the press box along with two iPads on the sideline, one of which is connected to a television. At away games, they provided HD video to a coach in the press box and iPads on the sideline across the field.

In 2016 Saline had 4 iPads in the pressbox, one in the endzone and two on the sideline. One iPad in the pressbox captured video (wide) while the endzone iPad provided a 2nd video angle (tight). They upgraded their iPads to iPad Air IIs and improved their network speed and reliability.

In 2017, Saline has 3 Macintosh laptops in the pressbox, one in the endzone, one on the sideline connected to their TV and 2 iPads on the sideline for coaches. They have replaced WiFi with wired ethernet where practical for improved speed and reliability. Pressbox and endzone video are captured from camcorders using Magewell USB Capture HDMI Plus framegrabbers providing higher quality video with fewer people.
