XFL Takes Sports Coaching To The Next Level

News Image
As Senior Director of Football Technology for the XFL, a premier spring football league, Brad Campbell embraces innovative solutions to enhance the overall fan experience.

Having previously spent more than two decades with the NFL, including as video director for the Seattle Seahawks, Campbell brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his role with the XFL, where he oversees the entire, diverse range of technological aspects that drive the league’s operations. This includes the league's video department, which encompasses eight video managers ― one for each team.

To ensure quality content, Campbell has forged pivotal partnerships with manufacturers such as JVC Professional Video, which has proven to be a game-changer thanks to the brand's state-of-the-art camera technology that is tailored for football operations. Campbell has seamlessly integrated JVC’s GY-HC500SPCU CONNECTED CAM™ Handheld Sports Production Cameras with the league’s Catapult analytics system for streamlined video management and efficient data transfer.

"The JVC GY-HC500SPCU cameras blow others out of the water; they have delivered fantastic results for us," said Campbell. "The ease of use, fast operation and compatibility of the cameras with our existing systems have significantly enhanced our video operations. We were one of the first organizations to adopt the 500-Series cameras, and we were sold on them right from the start. They are perfect for a start-up league ― the pricepoint is fantastic and the quality really matches everything that I have used in professional broadcasting."
