Favorite duel with live broadcast: SC Kirchdorf installs an intelligent camera system

SCK coach Andreas Apold is back on the sidelines after his vacation.
Before the district class top game against a fellow contender for promotion, SC Kirchdorf comes up with an interesting technical innovation.
– SC Kirchdorf and FC Moosburg meet on Friday at 6:30 p.m., the two teams that the district class coaches most often named as promotion candidates.
Since SCK is offering live streaming of home games this year, the top game in the evening will also be broadcast via the "Veo app".
Moosburg coach Sinicki: "I do believe that they will be at the top this season"
Both opponents have respect for each other, but after his team's 1-0 defeat in Mauern last weekend, SCK department head Stefan Lohmeier sees the favorites as being on the side of the guests.
They are at the top of the table after two matchdays with a clean sheet and 8:2 goals.
Despite this, Moosburg's coach Mario Sinicki was not at all satisfied with his team's first half in the 4-1 win against Paunzhausen last week.
The playful superiority of the FCM kickers only came into play in the second period.
From Sinicki's point of view, Friday's host is a direct competitor for promotion places: "As an actual accidental relegation from the district league, which nobody in Kirchdorf expected, I do believe that they will be at the top this season."
The SCK could prove that on Friday.
Coach Andreas Apold will be back on the sidelines after his vacation.
After the defeat in Mauer, his assistant Dennis Schlerf complained that he lacked the courage and self-confidence to score.

SC Kirchdorf tests camera system with highlights, heat maps and much more
At home games, the Kirchdorf coaches can now show their protégés such deficits in HD quality.
Because football department head Stefan Lohmeier had tried to set up live streaming this season.
To do this, he uses the mobile technology of the "Veo sports camera".
A cam module with two camera lenses and NVIDIA AI is set up on a tripod before each game.
This then covers a 180 degree view of the playing field from its location.
The AI recognizes the ball and the movement, controls the cameras, analyzes the action and prepares it in a highlight timeline with corner kicks, free kicks, shots on goal and goals.
The stream as well as special features such as heat maps and much more can be called up via the "Veo app", which is available for download in the usual app stores.
The acquisition costs for the cam module and the subscription fees of around 60 euros per month are covered by a sponsor.
According to Lohmeier, the technology will be tested this season and then a decision will be made as to whether it will be continued.
In the first home game against Vatanspor, the live stream didn't work satisfactorily, but the video images afterwards were "top quality", says the head of department.
