Professional swimming analysis with TEMPLO

Just like in any other discipline, swimming carries a wide range of parameters that can be analyzed using video technology. Starting with single camera setups for qualitative technique analysis through the use of simple 2D video analysis tools, there are almost no limits to enhancing the output by adding multiple cameras and other measurement devices such as instrumented start blocks. This newsletter will give you a solid overview of the latest capabilities of video analysis with TEMPLO’s latest extension module – Swimming Performance Analysis. Both fixed installation and mobile systems are available. Get in touch with us for further information!

Start- Analysis

Standardized workflow for evaluation of split times at relevant positions, trajectories of body points, angles and average velocities during a jump- or backstroke-start. Therefore, a minimum setup of five cameras is required (1 above water, 4 under water). All results are available within minutes after recording due to the well-structured and easy-to-use event definition.

Turn- Analysis

Software protocol for analysis of last and first 15m and the relevant split times before and after a turn was performed. Average velocities, stroke- and kick-rates and diving length will be shown in the report. Simple workflow according to start analysis. Minimum setup of five cameras (1 above water, 4 under water) is required.

Timing- Analysis

Very easy application for split time and stroke rate analysis during a race of any distance and swim style. Internationally comparable split times at relevant positions are part of the results as well as stroke rates at any position in the pool. For fixed installed systems, a setup of 5 cameras is recommended, but also with a single camera the user already has all possibilities. Especially for analyzing races during competitions with third party footage, this module is a very powerful tool for quick results and feedback for the athletes and coaches.

TwinCam- Analysis

Using the CONTEMPLAS TwinCam trolley, both, an under- and above water video are matched together to fit in one video file for both perspectives. This mobile trolley can be easily moved next to the swimmer so that the movement of the swimmer can be analyzed qualitatively. Waterproof cameras and a rugged notebook record the data and stream it wirelessly to the server. Through the usage of battery packs, no power chord is needed.

Third party measurement devices

Combine the recording with any third party measurement device like instrumented start blocks, EMG sensors or timing systems.

TEMPLO Swim Race Analysis

TEMPLO Swim Race Analysis is now available as a standalone software. See this video to get a first impression of the usage and the results.
