HI-POD Inc., The manufacturer of the 31 foot Endzone Camera and the 17 foot mobile Huddlecam, has introduced a high quality production and digital delivery method for shooting Pee Wee football across southern California.
Every Saturday, all over Los Angeles and Orange Counties, towering telescoping camera systems (called HI-PODs) have been sent to cover hundreds of Pop Warner and Junior All-American youth Football games. Parents , coaches and relatives have finally realized that shooting video from eye-level is not good enough, and have embraced the HI-POD WAY of capturing altitude shots when there is no stadium.
Never has such a systematic method of capturing altitude video for so many games and digitally delivering the high definition footage been attempted- until now. The high definition video footage of each game is uploaded and digitally delivered within twenty-four hours to the client. Weekly games are added to the library of hundreds of games already archived on the hipodgames.com website, allowing any parent to buy or any team to scout their competition.
HI-POD Inc., the company that manufactures the telescoping systems, also has produced a weekly highlight show, compiling footage from Pop Warner and Junior All-American youth football games. "We already had the green screen stage installed for our US Soccer client ", stated HI-POD CEO Enrique Morales, " So a Pee Wee highlight show seemed like a perfect way to summarize our digital delivery system."
The HI-POD HIGHLIGHTS show selects the top ten plays of the week, gives a cash prize award to the previous week's top play, and breaks down a great play ala 'John Madden" telestration technique. "We are in week nine of the season, and have nine shows." continued Mr. Morales. " HI-PODS are shooting the games, we are uploading the games with 24 hours, and have a show up every week. This system is working, " smiled Mr. Morales.
In 2008, HI-POD Inc. entered into a contract with US Soccer to shoot and deliver all of their youth academy tournaments. This four year relationship has introduced many innovations that are now being implemented in HI-POD's youth sports shoot & delivery system.
HI-POD footage as a service has matured since 2008. The original bottleneck was the delivery method. HI-POD pioneered a live dvd solution, but the quality was sacrificed for immediacy. Also the dvd took a long time to arrive if it had to be mailed. Now our delivery is digital with a much superior quality file. This means that anyone can receive the download within 24 hours, no matter where they are in the world.
Since 2002, colleges and high schools have been purchasing HI-PODS for their sports programs. Major sports clubs across the world have also recognized the value of the HI-POD by purchasing them for their sports academies.
One of the distinguishing features of the HI-POD product is its versatility. The HI-POD X7 includes a tripod base and elevates to 31 feet above the field. The operator below has total touch control of the pan, tilt and zoom functions. But this same unit can also be tinker-toyed into the more nimble 17 foot unit (the Huddlecam) that can be moved while fully elevated. There is also a robotic accessory that allows the operator to control the unit remotely from large distances.
"The HI-POD gets the shot that no one else has got. We are talking about entire games in High Definition. uploaded & available by next day" stated Mr. Morales. "Already we have conducted small tests outside of the United States with success. This means that we can implement this HD shoot and deliver system anywhere. I think we are ready. Our Southern California Pee Wee season validates it."
