PitchVision has received great initial interest from first class counties such as Yorkshire CCC.
It is already being used in South Africa along with schools and provinces such as the Highveld Lions and in India with several associations already using the technology along with IPL franchises and leading cricket schools.
How does it work?
PitchVision captures and sends performance feedback instantly to a centralized laptop in ‘real-time’ as players train. It automatically creates a complete overview of all activity taking place; from the delivery of the ball, to the final destination from the bat. It enables every player to capture precise measurements of batting and bowling performance. Best of all it’s designed to be affordable to everyone and is very easy to use. Once set up, no special bat or ball is required; just turn up, plug in and play.
Each player’s data can be displayed instantanously to a laptop, mobile phone and most commonly on-line for later analysis and communication with the coach. Every training session is stored to build up a historical data base and compared against past performance, peers and professional players. Whether you are interested in detailed summaries of your (or your player’s) line and length, or just want to know how fast you bowl PitchVision simply and unobtrusively enhances every training session, generating better data.
When Bowling PitchVision allows you to:
O Measure and record bowler Pace, Line, Length, Deviation, Bounce, and foot position on bowling crease ball by ball
O More specifically, how fast (or slow) to bowl when you’re bowling really well
O Monitor your flight, use of the bowling crease, deviation & bounce and identify trends
O See how often you actually land your stock ball or your wicket ball
O See a map of your line and length, graphs and charts of every area of your game
O Compare your performance to previous sessions and measure you’re improvement or areas to work on
When batting PitchVision allows you to:
O See whether your shots would have pierced the field / Are you getting value for your shots
O Identify which specific deliveries get you in trouble
O Compare your performance against different bowlers
O Bat in real game scenarios against real field placements
O See a ‘Wagon Wheel’ of shots from the session
O Confirm whether you are constantly getting to the pitch of the ball
The system is completely portable and can be installed on any good cricket wicket, permanently (if indoors) or temporarily if outdoors or moving from place to place. Read about PitchVision on their website at www.pitchvision.com.
