ARLINGTON, Va. –
The Washington Capitals announced today a partnership with Kiswe Mobile, a media packaging and technology company that enables mobile live-streaming video.
Kiswe’s technology was used by the Capitals’ coaching staff last season to view game action in real-time on tablets to review with players on the bench during home games. Kiswe’s app streams the cameras of home, away and overhead broadcasts directly to tablets on the bench, allowing coaches to use various camera angles to review game action. Coaches are able to pause, rewind and clip live-streaming video, allowing them to review and analyze individual plays and team systems with players on the bench in real-time. Coaches used the Kiswe app most frequently during timeouts and to help with in-game adjustments to the Capitals special team units.
“Kiswe’s software is a phenomenal teaching tool for our coaching staff and players,” Capitals senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan said. “Kiswe has made the Capitals a top priority as we have worked to tailor their software to our needs and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
Kiswe was founded in 2013 with the goal of fundamentally changing how the world watches sporting and entertainment events on mobile devices. Kiswe's live, multi-stream and clipping features bring valuable real-time insights to coaches and teams as well as more personalized experiences for fans.
"We love working with the Capitals and are thrilled to see how Kiswe’s real-time streaming capabilities help their coaches and players,” Kiswe CEO Wim Sweldens said. “Our ambition is to bring these capabilities to all sports teams and fans over time.”
