What is InstantReplay?

Coach’s Eye + InstantReplay is a brand new video solution. It provides coaches the ability to send and receive video between mobile devices, over a closed WiFi connection. This allows coaches to immediately review film seconds after the play and make adjustments on the fly.

How does InstantReplay work?

InstantReplay works with any iOS device running iOS 8.2 or later, or any Android device running OS 4.3 or later. By connecting your mobile devices to the same wireless router you can send video between devices, using the InstantReplay application.

InstantReplay works with the following iOS devices:

  • iPad mini 4 (and above)
  • iPad Air 2 (and above)
  • iPad Pro

InstantReplay works with the following Android devices:

  • Samsung S6
  • Galaxy G4
  • Nexus 9 tablet

Here is an example:


1. In the first image you see a member of the coaching staff recording from the top of the press box at a football field. His device is called a “broadcaster”. He is sending video to “receivers” in other parts of the stadium using a closed wifi network. This is an ios (iPad and iPhone) device to device transfer of video. He records the play, tagging the down, distance, rpk, and ytg. This data and video is sent to the receivers. Continue reading

2. In the second image you see another member of the coaching staff inside the press box receiving the play right after the broadcaster on top of the press box stopped recording. He is now reviewing critical information from his “Eye In The Sky”, so that he can make an adjustment for the next play. He can also use the data sent from the broadcaster to filter and make adjustments the next time this down, yard, or play comes up.

3. In the third image you see another “receiver” hooked up to a television. With Coach’s Eye + InstantReplay you can have multiple broadcasters and receivers spread throughout the stadium over the same closed Wi-Fi network. With a simple HDMI cord and digital av adapter you can hook your mobile device up to any HDTV.

With InstantReplay you can connect as many broadcasters and receivers to each other as you would like. There is no limit on broadcasters or receivers. Keep in mind that the more devices you add to a single router the slower the transfer speeds will be. Check out the full feature set below!


• No internet connection required! Devices discover and connect with each other over a secure Wi-Fi network, created by a wireless router. After initial setup, devices will remember previous configuration and automatically connect when on the same Wi-Fi network.

• Devices can be configured as either Broadcasters or Receivers. You can setup one or more Broadcasters to record from as many camera angles as desired. You can also configure one or more video Receivers to be recipients of videos from connected Broadcasters.

• Broadcasters can tag videos while recording. Specific football tagging to start, more sports coming soon! In the meantime, Broadcasters can turn off tagging interface for non-football sports / scenarios. Tags can also be edited by the Receiver, in video playback mode.

• You can start / stop a device’s camera using in-app camera interface, bluetooth remote, or Apple Watch.

• Videos and associated tags are immediately sent to Receivers when recording is stopped, so you can watch videos on sidelines using the slow motion scrubbing and zoom and pan capabilities.

• Intelligent, auto-advance feature automatically plays videos immediately as they come in to the Receiver when the current video ends playback.

• Video library auto-scrolls to new videos as they come in to the Receiver.

• Powerful filtering allows you to discover opponent tendencies.

• Recordings are automatically labeled by play number, and the videos are auto grouped into sessions. Additionally, videos from multiple Broadcasters are auto grouped within Sessions by recording timestamp. Grouped recordings will all have the same play number.

Recent Updates to Coach’s Eye + Instant Replay

Last month, the Coach’s Eye Team released our newest offering- Coach’s Eye + InstantReplay. The idea behind this ultimate sideline solution, is to give teams the ability to record one or multiple angles of crisp HD videos during game time, and then quickly and easily share videos and information to adjust plays on-the-fly.

Today we’re excited to announce we have an updated version of Coach’s Eye + InstantReplay, that allows you to export your InstantReplay videos using iTunes. Now, your InstantReplay videos can be imported into applications like Hudl, and other tools as well.  Additionally, we’re still offering FREE early access to InstantReplay until September 30th, 2015.


Updated Hardware Recommendations and Best Practices

Over the past month we’ve gathered a ton of great feedback from our users, and we’ve also had the opportunity to test out the InstantReplay solution in a wide variety of practice and game time situations, using various hardware.  We’ve learned a lot and would like to share that knowledge and our updated hardware recommendations with you, so you can have an optimum experience with Coach’s Eye + InstantReplay.

The bottom line is, when using InstantReplay, you should be receiving videos in under twenty seconds. If that hasn’t been your experience, consider the following:

  1. Your wireless router placement plays a critical role in maintaining fast video transfer speeds during games. Here are some tips that improve transfer speeds:
    • Line of sight is key, meaning try not to put objects (including human bodies) between the router and the devices. Try to get your Wi-Fi access point at least to the height of the press box. Also, angle the router down slightly, directed toward the 50-yard line on the field.
    • Place the router outside of the press box window.
    • Point the antennas down toward the field when possible.
    • Keep your router away from your headset broadcaster. Headsets vary, but some can interfere with your router.
  2. Using a dedicated router and closed wireless network is critical. Do not attempt to use the app while connected to an existing Internet connection.
  3. We strongly discourage using iPad 2’s and other older devices. Newer devices not only have better cameras, but are faster too. Some customers report their iPad 2’s were taking 40+ seconds to send videos, as opposed to the 10 second transfers they experienced when they removed the iPad 2’s from their dedicated Wi-Fi network. You can view our hardware recommendations.
  4. Having multiple InstantReplay receivers and broadcasters will slow things down. For example, having two receivers can double the total time it takes to receive the video.
  5. Be mindful of video resolution. Filming in HD creates larger videos that slow down transfer to other devices.
  6. Videos are transmitted in the order to which the devices were connected to Instant Replay. For example, if you have a receiver on the sideline and one in the press box, if the receiver in the press box was connected to InstantReplay first, it will be the first to get the video.
