XOS Thunder Football HD

This is a huge step for the West Georgia football program, and we could not be more excited to use the same video analysis tools as 90 percent of the top 40 BCS programs.

XOS Digital Inc., the leading provider of content management solutions and digital coaching technology for collegiate and professional sports organizations, and the University of West Georgia jointly announced today that the West Georgia football program has selected XOS Digital to provide the XOS Thunder HD coaching platform. West Georgia is the first Division 2 football program to purchase the XOS Thunder HD Network solution. The announcement was made today by Matt Bairos, CEO, XOS Digital and UWG Head Football Coach and Athletic Director, Daryl Dickey.

“This is a huge step for the West Georgia football program, and we could not be more excited to use the same video analysis tools as 90 percent of the top 40 BCS programs,” Dickey said. “This program will completely streamline our workflow and help us take our program to the next level.”

The Thunder coaching network offers high-definition video at a decreased file size, which decreases the time spent capturing, editing and distributing practice and game footage used by a coaching staff. The system enables coaches to enter data, create reports accompanied by video and distribute them on a shared network. Thunder reports are completely customizable with features including play lists, graphics, play drawings, video skills, hit charts and cross-tabs.

XOS Thunder HD is used by more than 240 teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL and NCAA, and is the platform used by recent champions including the University of Alabama football, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Los Angeles Kings, Boston Bruins and the University of Kentucky basketball.

By investing in Thunder technology, the Wolves will now have access to the newest Thunder HD builds and technology upgrades. XOS Digital’s newly launched ThunderCloud suite of cloud-based scouting, recruiting and coaching products, including ThunderCloud Scout, Recruit, Playbook and Exchange, also fully integrate into the Thunder network to further streamline and mobilize workflows.

“The Thunder HD coaching platform is the most widely used and respected coaching platform in the industry, and we are committed to providing the best possible tools and services to programs at all levels,” Bairos said. “Over the last 18 months, we have expanded our football customer base by more than 35 schools, and we are honored to now provide West Georgia football with the most advanced game preparation technology on the market.”

XOS worked closely with the West Georgia video team to determine the best solution based on workflow, video quality needed, budget and timeline. For more information on XOS Digital’s solutions, visit http://www.xosdigital.com or contact xos(at)xosdigital(dot)com.
