Track and Field Analysis takes on a Brighter Future
“Taking a football coach’s digital training tool and adapting it for broadcast TV is truly a challenge”, says Executive Producer, Ralph J Mole’ of Windfall Productions, “I am always searching for cost efficient ways to improve our Collegiate Track & Field telecasts and about a year ago I discovered Coach Paint by Chyron Hego at NAB in New York City.”
Deep analysis of any TV Sports action begins with specific pre-selected video clips. In Track and Field for example, demonstrating the launch out of the starting blocks, clearing the high hurdles, footsteps and release of a 16 pound shot put or the run up, approach and trajectory of a javelin throw. To the track and field fan these points are perhaps mundane but the average viewer can be captivated through the use of “Chyron Hego Coach Paint” and the viewer’s experience taken to a higher level regarding technical understanding of the sport of Athletics.

“As we enter our 10th season as exclusive TV packager of ESPN’s Collegiate Track & Field” Mole’ states, “I will continue to employ Coach Paint to enhance our nearly 40 Hours of live air and digital broadcasts in 2018”.
