The Schattenberg ski jumps (normal and large hill) are equipped with a professional multicamera system from ccc with a total of 21 cameras. It is used in training and competitions to record the jumps with the movement phases approach, take-off, flight, landing and evaluated in detail by the IAT Leipzig, training science partner of the DSV.
The visual feedback from the recordings and the resulting motion analyses of body and ski postures help athletes and coaches to identify even the last performance reserves and to convert them into decisive meters in the competition. The system was also in constant use during the World Championships and proved its worth, even in adverse weather conditions such as in the individual ski jumping competition. More than 1 terabyte (TB) of video data was generated.
