It was nice meeting the Australian swimming coaches at the ASCTA - Australian Swimming Coaches and Teachers Association this month. SwimPro set up a booth and had some great interest in the most popular SwimPro 4Cam !
SwimPro held a lecture on performance camera technology in swimming and was given some fantastic feedback on the current system and some 'wish list' items too add.. Coaches were informed to "watch this space".
SwimPro was given the privilege of meeting and working with London 2012 - 8 Gold Medalist, Paralympian of the Year- Jacqueline Freney. Superstar Jacqueline and coach Michael were given a hands-on SwimPro 4Cam experience at their performance venue. A 'quick' 5000m (200 lap) training session had the SwimPro team's legs shaking at the knees chasing Jacqueline up and down the lane. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your success Team Freney and lets break some more world records !!
Our SwimPro 4Cam package continues to impress coaches, clubs and athletes ! Take a look at the write up and beautiful photo of SwimPro in operation in the Bendigo Advertisor Newspaper (click here to take a look)

A special thank you goes to Olympic Silver Medalist Christian Sprenger for working with us on the day and showing us how to swim out of your skin when it counts !

Coaching Tips and Tricks
Tip #9 - SwimPro now connects wirelessly with Apple and Google tablets (iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Asus Transformer etc..) and Smartphone mobile devices (iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC etc..). Connect up your iPad or iPhone and view SwimPro swimming cameras in real-time. iPads can be used as view finders, coaching monitors or parents/spectator can even watch athletes from the grandstand (with a password).
Tip #8 - SwimPro 4Cam for turn style analysis. Many swimming coaches are using SwimPro 4Cam swimming camera training system to analyse flip turns from varying angles. It is found that timing, rotation symetry, depth positioning and 'streamline position' are all major factors that many athletes have not yet perfected. Using a combination of 4 angles from above and underwater, SwimPro 4Cam will give you and your athletes the immediate feedback to examine and improve these factors.
Tip #7 - SwimPro Platinum Plus can be transformed into an above water static lane or side wall swimming video camera. Place the static wall bracket over the lane or side wall, clip the SwimPro Platinum Telescopic Pole into the bracket with the camera end above the water. Detailed stroke and stylecan be analysed brillianlty !
Tip #6 - SwimPro X Floor Camera Setup - Did you know that you can use your SwimPro Platinum swim training camera as a pool floor camera. Attach the Swimpro Static Wall Bracket to your SwimPro Platinum Telescopic Pole. Flex the bracket so that it is in it's perpendicular position. Sink the complete unit to the pool floor.
Tip #5 - SwimPro FloorCamstroke, style and turn analysis - You need to see it to believe it. Our designated floor camera will give you a perfectswimming video view from beneath the swimmer. We have done extensive work with swimming clubs to view turns, stroke and style. The SwimPro FloorCam swimming camera system was fit for the job.
