An important function in sports video analysis is the marking of relevant scenes - tagging. This involves marking a period of time in the recording when something important happens, for example a particularly good execution of a movement or a mistake.
If tagging is to be performed during training or competition while recording is in progress, the freedom of movement may vary depending on the hardware that makes up the video analysis system.
If a tablet is used, for example, it is still easy for the trainer to move freely and be very close to the action. But if a laptop or even a standalone computer is used, on which the video analysis software is running, this becomes more difficult. For example, if the computer is at one end of the field, but the important things are happening at the other end, it becomes difficult to immediately highlight relevant moments.
This is exactly what we have now developed our tagging buttons for utilius kiwano. These are small Flic Bluetooth buttons that users can hold in their hands or clip to their clothing, such as their sleeve.
Via a mask, the user can configure in advance what is to be marked. Both single and double clicks are possible. Long clicks can also be assigned their own function.
For example, it can be set that a click sets a single time marker, the double click marks a positive situation and the long click marks a negative situation. However, multiple buttons can also be used to expand the possibilities.
With the buttons, scenes can be marked from anywhere. The trainer can be very close to the action or the athlete and still capture everything important. The range is 50m (without obstacles).
