Louis van Gaal’s famous notebook has its days numbered. Nacsport is working to replace old pencil and paper methods. A picture speaks louder than words. The video analysis software developed by this Canary Island company now enables us to immediately go over the critical moments in a match or any other event with just one click. "It works just as well with a school match as with an Olympic final”, say its developers. The mechanism is certainly not complex: a camera recording the match, a personal computer or laptop and the software. "During the match, we just have to identify the moment that we wish to review later”, explains engineer Alberto Rodríguez, for whom the speed at which the images are processed is very important. "At half-time, the coach can see a summary of specific actions and moves of a single player or the entire team, hence its potential”, highlights Rodríguez, who not only developed the program but also accompanies some professional teams in its practical application. However, Villarreal, Tenerife, Racing, Las Palmas or Ajax, among a long list of elite football teams, have purchased the program, which was initially tested on the hockey field, particular to analyse corner penalties. "It is also a great success in futsal, volleyball or basketball", adds Alberto, who received a call from the Spanish Futsal Team coach, José Venancio. Nacsport is a Canary Island company with international perspectives. From Canada to Japan, including Qatar, its computer program is distributed in nine languages, costs less that its competitors and offers more possibilities. "We are now preparing an amateur version, called Basic, that costs 150 euros", says the marketing manager, Frank Gornés. "This is a good market because we realize that not everyone can afford the Elite pack at 6,000 euros", he adds. There are simple demos explaining its full potential on the nacsport.com website. Present at the last world hockey championships The growing importance of Nacsport for Spanish sport can be seen in two details: during the last world hockey championships played in India from 28th February to 13th March, the Spanish team used it as a priority tool on a daily basis. Impressed by its utility, the Argentinean and Indian coaches also made use of the program. And that is not all: whoever wants to take on the job of national basketball coach now has to be familiar with Nacsport. Such as been its growth that federation instructors believe that it is a fundamental tool for all new professionals. Other disciplines can also be expected to follow this example. Source: Diario AS
