HD GOLF™ Video Swing Analysis

Give yourself the ultimate advantage on the course. Improve faster, make lasting changes and record your success. HD Golf’s Video Swing Analysis ensures trackable progression, actionable insight and shareable results. It’s like having your own film crew & instructor beside you as you practice. It’s easy-to-use and highly accurate!

When trying to improve your game or take it to the next level, it is very important to understand how subtle changes can affect your overall play. HD Golf™ Video Swing Analysis is feature-rich and includes a complete set of drawing and editing tools.

With HD Golf™ Video Swing Analysis, not only do you get crystal clear video playback, but you also get the benefit of receiving the most accurate ball and club measurements (Ball Speed, Launch Angle, Swing Path, Club Face Angle at contact and Ball Spin) in the industry today – displayed vividly on your big screen as well as your system touch screen. You’ll be really surprised how much you’ll learn about your own game!

Video Swing Analysis uses high-speed cameras with special wide-angle lenses to capture data. Our video playback will always be sharp and easy for players and coaches to review. The HD Golf™ cameras will also work well in low light and in situations where space is at a premium, such as an indoor hitting bay.

FEATURES:

 

    Automated Swing Capture – no operator required to hit a key on the keyboard to trigger the swing capture. Note: Some competitive systems rely on acoustic triggers for swing capture but these tend to work poorly in noisy environments and can be very frustrating to operate.

    The Perfect Swing: Compare your swing to that of the pros! HD Golf™ Video Swing Analysis is the only golf simulator that features The Perfect Swing which incorporates the swings of Ernie Els, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods (a composite swing model developed in conjunction with world-renowned golf instructor Jim McLean)

•    High-Speed Cameras: Module uses high-speed cameras (120 frames per second) with special wide-angle lenses to capture data.

    HD Golf™ cameras also work well in low light and in situations where space is at a premium, such as an indoor hitting bay. Note: Competitors use standard DV camcorders (average of 30 frames per second) to capture data and they tend to produce blurry images. Most DV camcorders may operate poorly in low light conditions rendering footage that may be useless for teaching purposes.

 

 

 

•    Editing Tools: HD Golf™ Video Swing Analysis module is feature-rich and includes a complete set of drawing and editing tools that can be accessed easily from the touch screen. Features include: Freeze Frame, Side by Side Comparison, Slow Motion Playback and the ability to save swings for later review.

•    Video Playback is always sharp and easy for players and coaches to review

•    Module is easy to setup and even easier to use. Just connect the cameras (included) and you are ready to go.

•    No need to purchase a costly second computer and software

•    USB Wireless Microphone

•    Deluxe Module includes 2 High Speed Cameras at 240 frames per second

•    Additional Camera with Lighting for Video Swing Analysis

AMAZING REALISM

As you golf some of the most prestigious courses around the world, it’s hard to believe you’re playing a simulator. Every tree, blade of grass and bunker is faithfully replicated, in rich, incredible detail.

We invented revolutionary image processing software to combine high-resolution digital-images, satellite data and geophysical data into 3D models. We are the only manufacturer to use this method and real course data.  HD Golf™ transports you to the world’s most exceptional golf courses – it’s like being there. All other simulator manufacturers use conventional 3D graphics and artist renderings, which look like a video game, not the actual course.

Only HD Golf™ delivers ‘look and play realism’ of world-renowned golf courses, including Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. It’s so real, you’ll reach for the rangefinder and look for the beverage cart.

When you play #7 at Pebble Beach on an HD Golf Simulator™, everything from the wood knots in the fence by the tee, to the semi-submerged boulder on the coastline….it’s faithful and true. Feed your passion for championship golf with the world’s most exclusive courses. You’re invited to the crystal clear, incredibly realistic world of HD Golf™.

Pinpoint Accuracy

The competitive golfer requires accurate, comprehensive measurement to fade & shape their shots on-command. HD Golf™ pioneered Computer Vision Technology in the golf industry, and is the only to use high speed, programmable smart cameras to achieve this level of accuracy. Collectively, our CVT technology & smart cameras deliver pinpoint accuracy & exceptional shot analysis for every shot.

Comprehensive Measurement: We measure ALL the critical club & ball parameters to analyze exactly what’s happening each time a golfer swings. There are, at minimum 4 cameras capturing your swing. They analyze club head speed, launch angle, swing path, club contact (heel/toe), club face (open/closed), efficiency, smash factor and a specific camera dedicated to measuring spin and spin-axis.

Accuracy of Measurement: Comprehensive measurements are critical, but the accuracy of these measurements is equally important. HD Golf™ Simulators measure with supreme accuracy. For example, we measure club face angle contact to within 1/10th of 1 degree. We also measure ball spin to within +/- 100rpm while competitor systems estimate (“calculate”) spin.

Consistent, Realistic, Accurate ball-flight allows you to improve your swing, perfect your game and enjoy visually stunning, on-demand golf.

Accuracy is also the main reason PGA Tour players like Bubba Watson, expert golf instructors like Jim McLean and equipment manufacturers like Nike™ use our simulators.

Quality

HD Golf Simulators™ redefined the Gold Standard in build-quality and integrated technology. Quality in a refined packaged is immediately obvious from first swing and makes your ownership experience a true pleasure. Our steadfast commitment to the ‘exceptional’ combined with minimal operating and maintenance costs ensures unparalleled reliability for years.

How We Do It

HD Golf™ has extensive engineering capabilities extending throughout and within hardware, software and mechanical design. We design & build all critical system components in-house and ensure seamless system integration. Most competitors cobble together 3rd party hardware and software to make their simulators – resulting in compromised reliability & system incompatibilities.

We are committed to ‘only using’ top quality professional-grade components such as: High Performance, ‘Intelligent’ Cameras, Professional Engineering Workstations, Linux Operating Systems, Multi-Element Screens and Spring-Set Nylon Turf. Collectively, our systems deliver unrivaled quality, superior performance and exceptional reliability.

Competitors typically use lower cost, inferior components, such as: Home PC’s to run their simulators, which tend to suffer from instability and frequent required updates. They also use polypropylene turf, single element-screens with high elasticity-rebound and reduced longevity. Both screens & turf last a half-life when compared to our in-house designed screens & turf. Other areas of compromise extend to their 3rd party cameras which capture your swing, but don’t form a complete alliance with the rest of the system.

Installation:

Our project management team, engineers and installation team work together for a flawless install. From initial CAD drawings to the completed project, we are experts in space usage, design, integration and project execution.

Service & Support:

HD Golf™ is a 1-stop-shop. We provide comprehensive support for the entire simulator and its system architecture. We are uniquely qualified because HD Golf™ designs and manufactures all critical aspects including ball/club tracking and ALL software.

If there is a problem, we provide 24/7 Support. One call and you’re directly connected to the engineers and technicians who designed, built and installed your system. Our stringent quality control combined with complete support contributes to a greater than 99% simulator uptime. Additionally, HD Golf™ pioneered Remote Diagnostics in the golf simulator industry, which allows us to remotely solve any challenge quickly and efficiently.

HD Golf™ is fully committed to total customer satisfaction.

Fun Competition

While it’s often said ‘one plays golf against him or herself’, the nature of competition and gamification has permeated the ranks of golfers worldwide. This ‘skin carried over’ to HD Golf™ and our integration of golfer competition. Our simulators are setup for incredible, interactive gaming. Long Drive or Closest-to-the-Pin competitions create fast-paced, exciting events with friends, colleagues, members and guests. Golfers love the collection of competitions like Break-the-Glass, Golf Poker, Field-Goal Challenge, Tic-Tac-Toe, Darts, Target Golf and Skills Competitions. There’s even mini-golf for the kids.

As easy to play as the games, are their management. Our user-interface and integrated, cloud-based, mobile-friendly HD Clubhouse Management Software is brilliantly simple. Use it to quickly setup and manage leagues, tournaments and advertising with ease. The Player Locker Room stores golfer stats, allows players to review lessons and the Communication Portal connects golfers to you. This allows you to showcase tournament winners, upcoming events and prizing.

HD Golf™ clients also use the panoramic, floor-to-ceiling simulator screen to watch events, such as the Masters, U.S. Open and other major golf tournaments, keeping everyone engaged and having fun.

So whether it’s a winter men’s league, a summer evening closest-to-the-pin competition or watching the Masters with golfing buddies, the versatility of an HD Golf Simulator™ delivers a compelling competitive advantage for you and your golfers.

Game Improvement

HD Golf™ was the first to develop a completely integrated Professional Golf Studio, ensuring Teaching Professionals, Clubfitters and Individuals have the best tools available for game-improvement.

Video Swing Analysis, 3D Motion Analysis,  Swing Dynamics Analysis, Weight Trasfer / Balance Analysis are all designed with one purpose: make you a better golfer.

In reality, a golf swing happens very quickly, and can be difficult to improve, especially when you don’t have analytics and recording technology to visualize the swing. Subtle adjustments can result in dramatic improvements – it’s critical you understand your individual swing dynamics. You don’t need to be computer savvy to use the Golf Studio. The integrated Golf Studio operates from a single touch screen, and is simple to use.

Jim McLean’s 8 Step Swing, which incorporates the swings of Ernie Els, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods, is an additional feature many HD Golfers decide to add to their simulators. Step by step, a golfer is able to perfect every element of their swing. The simulator records and analyzes a golfer’s swing in real time. When the system detects that the golfer’s position and swing are out of the “corridor of success” or have committed a “death move”, the simulator will automatically alert the golfer and present virtual coaching from Jim McLean.
