Windows RT Video App | Hudl
Hudl is the result when you mix three Raikes School graduates, a passion for Nebraska football, and a bunch of people not afraid to unleash their inner geek on the world of sports. Started by 3 members of Raikes cohort '01, we're now a group of 60 young people who aren't afraid to work hard or play hard. We help coaches and athletes prepare smarter and faster by connecting teams around the information they need to win. Hudl is used by a third of the NFL, over half of Division I, and two out of very 3 high schools in the country - over 10,000 organizations and growing. While football is our biggest market, we work with over 20 sports and help thousands of basketball, volleyball, and other teams as well. If you want to know what makes us tick, check out what we're really about.
Football coaches demand more and more of their film. No longer does the concept of a "film room" apply. They expect to watch their film immediately after practice, sitting on the couch after putting the kids to bed, or on the bus ride home from the last playoff game.
If a tablet sounds like the perfect way to watch film comfortably, then great minds think alike. We want to build a Windows RT app to allow our coaches to watch their film from anywhere. Sounds like Hudl is pretty solid. What else could you possibly want? Coaches want to have quick and easy access to their video. Sitting down with a tablet is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to do so. We want to allow coaches to use a Windows RT device to analyze film on the go, at practice, or during class while showing their students movies. We've seen tablet usage explode with our coaches and athletes - especially at the NFL and Division I levels. With the release of Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface, that growth will only speed up.
We expect the team to complete the following during the project:
- Users can log into the application and view a video library for each team they are on.
- Users can navigate through a library and watch any video while connected to the Internet.
- Users can download a playlist of video and then watch that playlist while offline (a playlist is usually something like - Red Zone Passes, Opponent Touchdowns, Tim's 3 Point Makes)
- Hudl allows coaches to make notes on top of video (telestration, text boxes, spot shadows). These notes should be viewable within the app, both online and on downloaded playlists. These notes will be read-only.
- Coaches love controlling the video with a separate remote. Research the limitations of Windows RT and interfacing with a third party remote. If it's possible, integrate the remote into the app. This will be scoped as time allows.
- Users can create notes on top of video through the app that are synced back to Hudl.com. This will be scoped as time allows.
