Following their recent success at the Olympics, Dartfish, the leading video analysis solution, is keen to develop the skills and enhance the employment opportunities of students. As a result, selected Universities will soon be delivering a Dartfish Student Video Analyst Certification Course.

The course will comprise 4 modules delivered by a Dartfish Certified Instructor, it will encompass video recording and management, technical and skill analysis, tagging and match analysis and finally, dartfish.tv, publishing and Dartfish mobile apps. Providing a mixture of workshops, assessment tasks and a final report will ensure that students achieve the skill level required to provide video analysis across a varied range of elite performance sports.
Dartfish will endeavour to use it’s own customer base to play the role of clients to whom an analysis proposal and report will be submitted.

A well-written report will not only earn the student certification but should also be a useful demonstration of knowledge to employers.

We would like to congratulate Yorkshire County Cricket Club on recently becoming the third major English county to start using dartfish.tv and software. Along with Durham and Sussex, Yorkshire have joined the growing number of professional sports teams, coaches and education institutions taking advantage of the unique solution that Dartfish offers the world of sports performance analysis.
Yorkshire will be using the platform to make their video analysis available to players and coaches no matter where they are. Making use of mobile internet and the new viewing profile of dartfish.tv, players will be able to view content on their iOS and Android devices anywhere they need to: On the bus to a game, in their hotel room or in between sessions, it will be at their finger tips. This service is not afforded by the ECB subsidised software given to the clubs. The benefits don’t stop there either…
Phil Dicks of Durham CCC is a former analyst at the English Institute of Sport, he cites dartfish.tv as a “one-stop-shop for video. [We have] Collections for age group squads, professional staff, coaches and ECB personnel such as Andy Flower, who are able to keep abreast of how our players are performing both through the winter in training and during match play during the season. We also use it to keep abreast of how our young players are going overseas during the winter by encouraging foreign coaches to upload to our site.”
As well as being used to share good practice with the next generation of Durham players, dartfish.tv is also used to showcase evidence provided by Durham’s Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) candidates. Whether it be Strength and Conditioning techniques, Batting and Bowling skills or Interview experience, the internal and external support staff can follow each candidate’s progress by simply logging on.
Nick Robinson, head analyst at Yorkshire CCC, added “Dartfish will enable the coaches and players to have instant access to footage of opposition for upcoming matches, personal highlights packages and motivational videos.”
At Sussex CCC, Dartfish is used to analyse fielding technique, ensuring that players are able to get the most from training and improving match performance. This done using the popular Tagging feature, that allows markers to be added when specific events occur in the timeline. This can also be done using the Dartfish EasyTag mobile app, video of these events is later reviewed.
Content uploaded to dartfish.tv is organised by the advanced keywording system, allowing players to find individual balls bowled or specific types of shot played, this content is also closely protected, the flexible login system allows access to the analysis to be private, restricted, public or even payable.
Dartfish solutions which include your own TV Channel, Analysis Software and EasyTag Mobile Tagging App are available from as little as £125 per month. For more information or a free consultation, please contact us:

Unlimited Users: The number of people who can subscribe to your content is no longer limited.
Public or Private: Collections are Dartfish’s way of organising content, they are now classified simply as public or private. If you want your audience to self-subscribe, download or pay for access, you can add these services to individual collections.
New Ways to Share Content: Subscribing others is now as simple as addressing and sending an email. Adding members first is optional, in the same way that adding contacts to your email software is optional. If you give the new subscriber limited access, there’s no need for them to log in, even if the content is private.
Keyword Management of Members: Need to share a collection with your senior team? Or create a personal collection for all the clients at your spring camp? Keywords are now used to create member groups. Simply type the name of the group to find, contact or share with everyone in it.
Make Your Video Pay: Pay-to-view access is now just 2 steps: first subscribe, then pay.
Improved exploring: Audiences can now search for events within videos and play all as a playlist. For example, watch all of the goals in a match or every time your favourite player is involved.
Access Roles: No longer is there a need to define viewers, consumers, contributors and moderators. When sharing a collection, you define what you want the recipients of the invitation to be able to do with the content: upload, download, edit… simple.
