Promises made are promises kept. When ProFile Sports was just getting started a few years ago providing live streaming services for sports, Ability360, a world-class athletic facility in Phoenix designed for athletes of all abilities but especially for people with disabilities, was among the first to test the new service. That first Live Stream experiment was rough, admits founder Diana Wilson of ProFile Sports, but showed great promise! It was obvious that live streaming video that follows the action, with cool overlay graphics and transitional effects was a winning combination for viewers of youth and club sports, but a strong internet connection to eliminate buffering was going to be key to a quality viewer experience.
So ProFile Sports decided to make a major investment into some state-of-the-art equipment, and has offered Ability360 two, ultra high definition Automated Intelligent (A.I.) tracking camera systems to Live stream the variety of sports available at the Ability 360 gym. With the intention to do two more similar installations this summer, we promised that Ability 360 would be the first.
ProFile Sports is loyal to Ability 360, not only for giving us an early opportunity, says Wilson, but because like us they promote programs to empower athletes of all abilities to take personal responsibility so that they may achieve or pursue their sport and independent lifestyles within the community. ProFile Sports mission is to empower and inspire amateur athletes to take charge of their own sports careers by studying their game video and making improvements. As our slogan says; Watch more – Win more.
By getting used to the fact that when you play, you must always be on… On your game, and on your best behavior! We want to impress upon young (and old) athletes to be responsible for their own public image early, because what you do on the court, on the bench, on-line and in the stands matters! You never know who may be watching. Could be grandma, but could also be a college recruiter or coach.
