Leading the Way With TechnologyPosted by Chuck Faust on: February 16, 2012
Chuck Faust is President of aboutGolf.
If you are reasonably familiar with aboutGolf, you know we are committed to staying at the forefront of technology and offering the best experience to our customers. Essentially, our biggest investment each year is committed to the development of new technologies and enhancement of existing ones. Most recently, we launched some exciting new products and features for our PGA TOUR Simulators and Techcentric, our European Tour Performance Institute branded Performance Suite.
aG SimSurround Curve – A dramatic enhancement to the immersive experience available on aboutGolf simulators, the SimSurround Curve takes the aboutGolf-invented, triple-screen, wrap-around original version of the SimSurround to an entirely new level. A single-piece curved screen that makes use of image-blending software to seamlessly integrate the output of three projectors and create a panoramic effect, the SimSurround Curve spans 22 feet and provides 160 degrees of image. This new product results in an enhanced life-like experience that has been dubbed “the IMAX simulator.”
aG View – Another revolutionary first from aboutGolf, the patent-pending aG View allows golfers in PGA TOUR Simulators to change the view of the simulator in conjunction with the golfer’s view – allowing the golfer to bend down to read putts, look around trees, jump up to look over the lip of deep bunkers, and so on. aboutGolf Board of Innovation member, David Leadbetter, was very impressed by the ability to read greens with this feature and indicated that he will now be able to utilize aboutGolf’s Simulators to teach students to read greens more effectively. Adicionalmente, golfers can use aG View to control the simulator with hand gestures, allowing the golfer, por exemplo, to advance to the green from his/her location on a hole to inspect the pin position and determine where to place the approach shot. Many other aspects of the simulator can also be controlled with simple hand gestures.
AG Móveis – A unique and versatile addition to the aboutGolf family of products, aG Mobile is the heart of the ETPI-branded Techcentric Product Suite and provides the renowned accuracy of 3Trak in a mobile device that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Essentially, aG Mobile is situated on the ground facing the golfer and is capable of providing a full spectrum of ball and club data. The device can also be easily placed in its cradle to accommodate right- or left-handed golfers. aG Mobile operates on direct power or for up to four hours on rechargeable batteries and connects to a laptop device via wireless or Ethernet cable. Built for portability and rugged use, aG Mobile is constructed of cast aluminum and can withstand variable weather conditions, as well as errant golf balls and other rough handling typical on driving ranges. aG Mobile comes standard with aboutGolf’s Perform Pro software, which provides extensive shot recording capabilities, as well as the ability to compare performance over time and set performance gauges for training and result measurements.
aG Balance Pro Tour – Another important element of the ETPI suite, the aG Balance Pro Tour provides the same extensive bio-mechanical measurements available in our indoor balance system, but with light-weight portability to be used in conjunction with aG Mobile. The Balance Pro Tour provides very accurate data on balance, center of gravity and weight shift throughout the swing – including from heals to toes and from foot to foot, allowing the timing of the swing to be understood in great detail. It is built to operate effectively indoors and outdoors through use of direct power or for more than eight hours on rechargeable batteries, and connects to a laptop via wireless or Ethernet cable.
Logo Spin – A significant new advancement that enhances the ease of use of aboutGolf’s 3Trak technology, this new firmware feature enables use of standard range balls and balls with standard markings, rather than the special patterned golf balls required in the past. This enables aboutGolf technology to be used on outdoor ranges and environments where using specially marked golf balls are inconvenient. As a result of this new functionality, the use of aboutGolf’s industry renowned 3Trak technology is eminently portable and effectively supports the engagement of European Tour and other partners who seek to use technology both indoors and outdoors.
We are proud of these new additions and trust you will be pleased with them, as well. And, one thing you can count on, aboutGolf will continue to lead the way in golf performance and simulation technology.
