Branded Video Lessons

Record video summaries of your lessons branded with your own name, logo and contact details in just a click. Then share it with your students through YouTube, email or Swing Catalyst Online.

Swing Explorer

The Swing Explorer organizes all your recorded swings by name, date and time. It also lets you find and sort your students’ swings based on the type of club (and carry distance if you are using a launch monitor).

Sensor Data Integration

If you own a Swing Catalyst Balance Plate or a 3D Motion Plate, the software seamlessly integrates and synchronizes all this data with your video. If you are using FlightScope or Foresight GC2/GCQuad, all ball flight and club data are integrated and stored together with the video images.

Live video stream

The Swing Catalyst software supports live video capture from up to 4 cameras simultaneously (all camera angles fully synchronized). The software supports a range of high-speed USB- and GigE cameras along with some analog cameras (e.g. CCTV). Please refer to our support page for an updated list of the cameras supported by the Swing Catalyst software. You can buy our recommended cameras from the shop.

Import video

The Swing Catalyst software lets you import videos from all types of cameras such as your smartphone. You can also import video files from a folder on your computer or a memory stick. If you have been using V1 or JC Video previously, you are able to import the complete video library to Swing Catalyst in just one click.

Sensor Plates

The Balance Plate and the 3D Motion Plate adds an important dimension to golf instruction. Elements such as pressure shift, detailed foot pressure distribution and ground reaction force cannot be determined by the best trained eye or even expensive high-speed cameras. All this information is revealed by the Balance Plate and the 3D Motion Plate and perfectly synchronized with the video images in the Swing Catalyst software.

Ball flight – and Club Tracking Devices

If you are using a FlightScope, Foresight GC2/GCQuad or a Full Swing Golf simulator, all ball flight- and club data are seamlessly integrated and stored together with the video images. These tracking devices can also be used to automatically trigger the video recordings.
