This program can be used for simple recording and reviewing video of a digital camera. The main difference between this program and simular software of other manufacturers is that this software is very easy to use.
Below screenshots of three modes of version 3. The first picture shows the Capture mode, where the video is captured from the digital videocamera.
The video clips can be played in View mode. The video can be played at different speeds and frame-by-frame. It is also possible to add drawings (like lines, ellipses or rectangles). Different colors and thicknesses can be selected.
After a video clip has been reviewed a video clip can be distributed to the swimmer. It is even posible to create a compressed version (which is considerably smaller in size compared to the original video in avi format).
We are working on the new version 4. Visit this page again in a few weeks to see if a beta version is available!
Before you register the software, you can test the software free of charge. However, the software is restricted in it's use. In case of The SwimWatch Video it is not possible to save video clips. However, the program can display a live video image and it can play the sample clip included in the setup program.
Although these restrictions may bother you slightly, bear in mind that the purpose of the Demo mode is to enable you to determine whether this software can help you improve performance, before purchasing.
Experience has shown that this software is used by different types of users: from amateur to professional. For that reason this software has three user levels: Lite, Standard and Pro. Lite is intended for small clubs, Standard for bigger clubs and Pro for professional users or National teams. These variations are combined into a single program. After startup a form is shown in which the desired variation can be chosen.
