Benfica invests in new video recording and analysis technology for performance development.
Portuguese side Benfica (S.L.B), one of European football’s leading clubs, are joining the quickly growing list of customers that has selected Spiideo to deliver advanced video recording and analysis solutions for improved team- and player development.
The Spiideo system creates high-resolution panoramic footage of the entire pitch, and provides an effective and easy-to-use video analysis tool for coaches, analyst and players all the way from first team to academy.
Speaking of the technology, Marco Pedroso, Assistant Coach, SL Benfica, said: “Spiideo provides a really powerful tool both from a tactical analysis perspective as well as for individual talent development, since it always captures everything on the pitch and allows us to view and analyze every situation in detail from different angles,”
The Spiideo Virtual Panorama technology provides an overview of the entire field, as well as details of individual players captured in the same recording. This then integrates with data and statistics, performance analysis, collaboration and communication all in the same experience. Since the Spiideo setup is scalable it is suitable for both small clubs with limited resources, as well as premium pitch setups with full scale Spiideo systems as is the case of Benfica.
“Benfica is truly one of the great football clubs in Europe, and are extremely professional and thorough in everything they do,” says Patrik Olsson, CEO of Spiideo. “We are very proud to be selected as provider of video recording and analysis capabilities for the club, and be a part of the continuous work with video analytics for advanced performance development.”
