Access Your Swings From All Devices

What you need

Real-time swing data is derived from instantaneous motion capture and measurements to give the baseball or softball player instantaneous complete feedback over every swing. Posture, alignment, hips and shoulders rotations, body moves, balance and weight transfer are all factors we track; and each of these elements is precisely analyzed by the Hittinguru system. Hittinguru enables accurate position data from all swings to be recorded to the players personal profile. Data from multiple sessions can be compared. Swings are recorded for ongoing analysis and improvement.

Reviews provide the player all of the information needed, including a full swing diagnostic but also swing comparison to some of the best players. The Visual-Feedback system can precisely pinpoint your weaknesses and strengths. In terms of swing technique improvement and feedback, it may actually be better than practicing outside focusing on your ball flight.

Among the multitude of options: players can set up their individual account and track their improvements over time from their training sessions, the system stores all the results to show progress per day, week, month, … ; the player can also replay and review his or her swing videos whenever he or she wants to and access related customized content. As for the technology involved, Hittinguru specifically designed software uses advanced wireless and markerless 3D motion capture technology to automatically record the action from 1 or 100 swings. Capture, replay, analyze your motion, balance and weight transfer while rotating your swing up to 270º and even overhead with our “birds eye view”. Hittinguru’s infrared tracking system operates through a single 2D + 3D Microsoft Kinect 2.0 depth-sensing camera plugged via USB port to a Windows enabled (PC or Mac) computer.

3D Camera: Hittinguru with Kinect for Xbox One + Kinect for Windows Adapter


general setup instructions

CAMERA AND DISTANCES

  • - Just aim the camera level with the ground (0° tilt) about 95cm (3ft) above the ground and have the batter stand about 2,2 meters (7 ft) away from the camera. Adjust as needed.
  • - Just use the 3D view (no 2D) for best performance. The objective is to get the hitter within the blue frame on the 3D view of the camera – and then to get it to turn yellow which means it’s ready to record. To learn more visit our FAQ or download our user guide.

 

INDOOR VS OUTDOOR USE

  • - When using outdoors, just avoid direct sunlight on the front of the player’s body or into the camera lens.
  • - Remove unnecessary furniture like tables, chairs…avoid having other players or spectators in the field of vision of the camera as it can pick up multiple people and will confuse the system.

LIGHTING TIPS

  • - With good lighting, you should have no problem capturing swings using the variety of swing capture modes the software offers.
  • - If indoor lighting is poor, or your outdoor location is in the direct sunlight, use the manual capture mode to ensure your swing capture.

 

CLOTHING TIPS

  • - Some dark or black clothing and specific textiles (technical garments) that absorb light may interfere with the 3D analysis. Favor clothes with light and vivid colors.
  • - Manual capture mode can be used as a fail-safe to make sure you capture and analyze your swings.
