The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and Pixellot have agreed to a multi-year partnership, making the world’s leading provider of AI-Automated™ sports video and analytics solutions the official video analytics partner of the NFHS.
As part of the partnership, the NFHS and its member schools will receive special terms and access to VidSwap, Pixellot’s analytics platform. Through the platform, coaches at participating member schools can view detailed game stats, video, highlights, in-depth analytics, and full video breakdowns, including shot charts and heatmaps.
“Pixellot’s innovation is helping to revolutionize high school sports for coaches,” said NFHS CEO Dr. Karissa Niehoff. “The VidSwap analytics platform allows coaches to use their time more efficiently, leading to improved player development and assistance for our student-athletes looking to benefit from the lessons learned through participation in education-based activities.”
In addition to the time-saving functionality of VidSwap, the Pixellot platform provides high school coaches the opportunity to experience technology used by professional and collegiate teams. As a result, student-athletes nationwide can receive increased visibility.
“Becoming the official video analytics partner of the NFHS aligns perfectly with our mission to democratize sports and transform high school coaching and talent development,” said David Shapiro, Pixellot President North America. “Players don’t have to wait to be discovered anymore as our technology helps to identify talented individuals, as well as improve how they play their chosen sport.”
As part of the agreement, schools in NFHS member state associations receive access to Pixellot Air, an integrated mobile solution that captures, reviews and analyzes video. The lightweight, portable device features a dual camera array and direct cloud uploading that can easily and quickly be set up to capture up to 12 hours of footage.
Currently, Pixellot cameras are in place at almost 9,000 high schools affiliated with the NFHS Network.
The NFHS and Pixellot will be hosting a joint webinar at 12:30 p.m. EST on October 6 to explain how their partnership benefits districts, schools, athletic directors and coaches nationwide.
