Glen Ellyn, Illinois (May 20th, 2019) – Today, the College of DuPage and PlaySight are excited to announce a new technology partnership – PlaySight’s SmartCourt sports AI technology will be coming to the Chaparrals coaches and student-athletes. The Chaparrals will have access to live streaming and automated production technology, as well as video and performance analysis tools. PlaySight officially partnered with the NJCAA in November of last year, and College of DuPage is the first member-school to adopt the technology for its athletic department.
Greg McVey, the director of Athletics and Recreational Programs at College of DuPage:
“Technology allows athletic departments to reach out in new and creative ways all of the time. By partnering with PlaySight and its Smart technology and becoming its first community college client, this will enhance College of DuPage and our student-athletes and programs in ways that we haven’t achieved before. We’re excited about delivering our message to our athletes and community with this new platform.”
PlaySight Director Erik Gormley:
“As a company, we are focused on bringing technology to all teams and levels, and that is why we were so excited last year to officially partner with the NJCAA. DuPage has established itself as a sports technology leader within the community college level and we’re excited to see the impact that our Smart platform will have on their school, community, coaches and athletes. We’re leveling the playing field with our affordable platform and our goal is to give every team the same experience with our video technology.”
Brian Luckett, Chief External Affairs and Development Officer of the NJCAA:
“Both PlaySight and the NJCAA expect DuPage to be the first of many community colleges to add this technology heading into next season. “It is exciting to see the innovative technology from PlaySight starting to grow with our member colleges,” said . The autonomous video production and SmartCourt technology has a significant impact for NJCAA programs when they are expected to do more with less. This technology helps to do just that.”
