Action Sports Performance Tracking Solution: Motion Recognition with Real-time Activity Data Overlays
Softeq extended the capabilities of a mobile sports POC app built for a global sports giant by recreating it on Windows for Windows powered smartphones and tablets. In order to replicate the complete app’s functionality, the team had to address several issues. The hardware-driven slow motion video capturing could be realized through a high-speed video API available exclusively to Microsoft and its select vendors.
Softeq leveraged its long-term technology partnership with the customer to access the API for implementing the slowmo capability. Due to unavailability of the target device on the market, the app had to be tested remotely at the Microsoft site with fine-tuning done locally by Softeq. This implementation triggered the development of an SDK for the iOS app version to allow adding static and dynamic overlays to the slowmo video.
