The Pitch Track system presents real-time pitch data with instantaneous video playback of the ball’s velocity, count, path and location in the strike zone.
The Pitch Track system utilizes two video feeds: one feed from the centerfield camera for pitch-by-pitch tracking and the second feed from encoded clean video. The video server’s time-code generator synchronizes the live video taken by the centerfield camera with the clean video, guaranteeing an accurate view of the pitch in the replay video.
- The Pitch Track system greatly enhances the viewing experience with instantaneous numeric and graphic pitch data.
- Pitch speed data is captured via direct radar gun output, collected and controlled by SMT’s SportCG with the result instantly displayed on a specially designed on-screen graphic.
- Pitch count is automatically collected by the SportCG or manually entered by the operator for direct display on the same graphic image.
- The Pitch Track on-screen graphics include a depiction of balls and strikes thrown in the strike zone, tracing the path of the ball from the pitcher to the catcher’s mitt and can incorporate sponsor or advertising graphical elements.
