Register your event in three different ways
Register your event in three different ways:
- Live (real time),
- From a video file
- Without video source (by synchronising the event with your registers in a later stage)
Formats: capture, playback and making videos
Capture in AVI and MP4. Work with any of these playback formats (AVI, WMV, MOV, MPEG, MPG, MOD, M2V, MTS, M2TS, MP4, FLV, MKV, M4V, TS) and make videos in other five formats (AVI, MPEG2, FLV, M4V, MP4).
Up to three “jump” options in playbackUsers will be able to customise up to three different options of “jump” times to move forward and backwards along the video with different key combinations.
Import/export XML files
Import XML files from other systems with timeline based products and export Nacsport databases to this format.
Timeline to edit all the registered actions
All the versions of Nacsport have a timeline clearly showing what occurred in an event. All the recorded actions can be easily adjusted and reviewed. The timeline provides a working environment which optimises the time spent on analysis, so you can easily lengthen or shorten actions, delete, duplicate, change information, add new categories (rows), change names and more. The timeline is the most important tool for working with your recorded actions.
Print or export reports to MS Excel® or PDF
You can export in two ready to present formats: registers ordered chronologically or ordered by category with totals of information included. You can also export different XLS format files for deeper statistical analysis in Excel for example.
Import and synchronise external data
You can synchronise data provided by external companies such as STATS, NBB (Dutch basketball league) or ACB (Spanish Basketball League).
OBSERVATION AND DATA COLLECTION
Categories template (unlimited buttons in two hierarchical levels)
The categories template is a window in which you create buttons for each item you want to analyse, under two different levels: primary level (categories) and secondary level (descriptor). Descriptors are created to describe a category. You can create as many buttons as you wish.
Example: “Shots (category) in first period (descriptor)” or “Passes (category) made from the right side (descriptor)”.
Link buttons in the template
Register several actions with one click by linking buttons in the template.
Example: link “Goals” with “Shots” (a goal always implies a previous shot).
Advanced graphic descriptor
Graphically register where actions take place on the pitch. A background picture of a pitch can be divided into areas you create with associated descriptor names, so that you can click anywhere to show when different actions occur and identify these actions with a chosen colour… By doing so, you will get more efficient data points and results. You can also link the click points with lines to reproduce the chronological route of an action.
For actions mutually excluded by nature. When a button is activated, the others cannot be active (selected category buttons must be in manual mode first).
Example: Possession (Possession A, Possession B and No Possession). When “Possession A” is marked, “Possession B” and “No Possession” will be automatically unmarked and visa versa.
By using this setting in the template, you will be able to automatically populate an independent presentation file to include all the actions which have this parameter when pressed during an observation, with the clips separated into lists by the videos they are associated with (Game 1, Game 2, Game 3 etc.).
Example: In your template you have created a button called “Positive actions” and each time you click that button during the observation, these registers will be included in a presentation file with the same name. Each list in that presentation file will be of each different video.
Before the observation, you can pre-set your registers to automatically populate a list in a presentation window when you open it in the timeline.
Create buttons with different shapes
Customise your template with buttons of different shapes: squares (by default), polygons, circles or irregular shapes (drawn by user).
Associate score to register
See the score of the match/game in any moment of the timeline.
Independent descriptor window (unlimited windows)
Create windows that are separate to the main template to include different descriptors. With these windows, you will be able to create secondary templates of your opponent’s squad names for example.
Revise actions in real time
Revise and edit actions in real time without leaving the capture or moving to the timeline.
Access to your data matrix during register
Review your data matrix (numerical relationship between categories and descriptors) in the registering environment to see the results when live, or get instant access to specific events when doing a register from file.
Insert text and audio notes
Supplement your registers with extra information by adding text and audio notes.
Insert drawings into your registers
Add drawings to your registers, either made by you or from imported drawings.
Real time export to MS Excel®
Generate a MS Excel® (XLS) file during the register which will include all the actions being registered. This file can be consulted at any time by external applications.
Rating registersRate your registers from 1 to 5. With these ratings applied, it is possible to order or filter registers in the timeline for specific viewing. Users can even modify these ratings in the timeline.
Advanced independent text notes during observationWhile observing a video, you will be able to add independent text notes (not linked to any register). You can customise notes and divide them into groups or associate them to categories from your template.
Wild card buttonThis button allows you to start registering an action which has not been identified at first glance. Then, once identified, the user will be able to finish the action’s recording by pressing the chosen corresponding category button in the template.
Example: In a basketball game, a play is running but we are not sure which system is being used. We start registering with our wild card button and once we have recognised that system, we will press the category button for that system. By doing so, the beginning and end of the register will be more accurate.
WORK WITH YOUR DATA (TIMELINE)
Access to the precise moment a descriptor appears
Access the precise moment a descriptor was clicked during a category so that it is not necessary to watch the whole clip from the beginning.
Example: You want to access the exact moment that “Player 9” (descriptor) has done a “good” (descriptor) action in the first half (descriptor) in an “Offensive actions” (category) without watching the whole clip again from the beginning.
Multiple data matrix (unlimited videos)
Create a data matrix with the registers from different timelines and associated videos.
Example: A data matrix with all the season’s games.
Dynamic data matrix (review based on time periods)
Consult a customised data matrix based on time periods.
Example: If you want to consult data “from minute 15 to minute 25 within the game”.
Create submatrices and save structures
Submatrices will allow you to create a data matrix taking a category as a reference. By doing so, you will be able to relate descriptors of that category against each other. Also, you can save this comparison structure for future searches.
Example: After double clicking “Attack” (category) in the data matrix, the submatrix is opened showing all the descriptors associated to it which can be ordered by the user onto an X/Y axis. In the submatrix, relationships between “Guards A” (descriptor) and “good” (descriptor) will appear for that “Attack” category. The result is 8. As with the data matrix, these corresponding clips will appear in the upper left corner to be used further.
Advanced searcher in multiple databases
Find specific registers within your databases using this powerful tool so you can set search filters and save these structures for future searches also.
Text or audio notes searcher from timeline
You can get faster access to your registers through the text/audio notes searcher.
Link two video files to a same database
Analyse your event by attaching two video files to a single database so you can select your choice of individual or simultaneous side-by-side views.
Example: A video from the TV broadcast and another video from your own camera.
Use unlimited databases for the same video
A single video can be analysed as many times as you wish. These databases can then be opened in a tab style format for your selected video in the timeline.
Example: Different members of staff have made diffferent analyses on the same game. This tool allows you to have them all open in the same environment to extract a selection of clips/data from them.
Combine two timelines from a same video together
Fuse registers from two different analyses into a single database.
Example: A staff member has analysed offensive actions and the other has analysed defensive actions for a game. When combining them, you will create a new single database with the whole analysis of that event.
Compare up to 8 actions
Compare up to 8 different video clips from the timeline simultaneously. You can also draw onto these comparisons.
Custom matrixCreate a matrix only showing what you need. You are able to save this structure for future occasions.
Example: Create a matrix for attacking actions which will only include categories and descriptors from your database which are related to offensive actions.
Dashboard ToolCreate unlimited dashboards with unlimited charts and labels with data taken from single or multiple games. Open up different tabs of dashboards at the same time. Combine data in differenttypes of charts. Add data labels. Create alerts. Check and save data for specific periods of an event in real time or from the timeline. Share your dashboards and clips in real time via a network.
PRESENT YOUR WORK
Create presentations with action lists
Select your top actions from your timelines to share them with others, by organising them into lists according to your criteria. You can show your presentations both from the software or by producing a video with your analysis.
Use unlimited videos and unlimited databases in presentations
You can select the actions to be included in your presentations from unlimited videos or databases.
Data matrix in the presentation
Create a matrix with data from the actions included in a selected list of the presentation window.
Compare actions in the presentation
You can compare actions against each other in the same list of your presentation.
Add external audio into the lists within your presentation
Include an external audio file into your presentation: your own recording, music or any other audio file.
Tools to edit registers in a presentationNew tools allow you to edit and move registers within your presentation. Drag & drop registers from one list to another to copy it or hold the Ctrl key and drag & drop to cut and paste from one list to another.
Add external video as a register in your presentationYou will be able to add external videos to your presentation by dragging them from your desktop to the presentation window and dropping them into it, or just by using the import option. They will be added as individual registers within the selected list.
AND ALSO… ¡Nacsport Training!
