XOS lets NBA, NCAA coaches download video from Hoop 1
XOS Technologies basketball partners can now expedite video acquisition by directly downloading video from the Web site of Hoop 1 Video, one of the country s leading basketball content providers.
Hoop 1 is a well known basketball content provider that has serviced NBA and NCAA basketball teams for more than 20 years, said John Castles, XOS basketball product marketing manager. Together, we ve been able to put in place a solution that will save basketball teams a significant amount of time in obtaining scouting video.
The solution involves Hoop 1 capturing all television and satellite basketball games and also having access to European League video. However, Hoop 1 will now have the ability to distribute the content in a Windows Media digital format on the Hoop 1 Web site. As a result, XOS basketball partners using XOS NG Hoops 1.0 (the next generation editing system) can download and directly import the video for editing purposes.
It provides an extremely efficient process for teams to acquire and edit video, whether they re at home or on the road, said Mitch Kaufman, Hoop 1 founder. Currently many teams use DVD s that require digital conversion prior to editing, not to mention arrival delays of up to a few days. Now, teams can import digital video directly into the XOS system immediately following a game. It doesn t get any faster that that!
According to Castles, the alliance brings together more than 30 years of combined experience in the industry. Coupling sophisticated video and data analysis solutions with an efficient distribution channel creates a comprehensive video editing solution that addresses opponent and player scouting.
