PlaySight Technology

PlaySight’s Smart Court technology is a system of six cameras that are installed around a tennis court (making it ‘Smart’). 3D visual processing powers each Smart Court to provide real-time video and analytics, a new way to train and play, and interactive and engaging coaching tools.  There are now approximately 300 Smart Courts around the world, from Roland Garros to Wimbledon to Harvard University to the USTA National Training Center, and now Tennis Canada.
