Club partners with video distribution system PlayerLync

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Rockies announced a partnership with Denver-based PlayerLync -- a system that distributes video and securely collaborates it throughout the organization.

PlayerLync is a technology used throughout the NFL. The Rockies, according to their news release, last season became the first Major League Baseball team to adopt the company's technology that automatically pushes and controls videos, scouting report and more to team-issued iPads.

"It used to be difficult and time consuming to distribute video and scouting reports to anyone outside our building," said Brian Jones, the Rockies' video coordinator. "Now, with PlayerLync's technology, we are able to automatically disperse those videos and reports to the iPads of any player, coach, or scout, no matter where they are. PlayerLync has revolutionized our process, and there's not another technology solution like it."

The Rockies' baseball operations staff uses PlayerLync to provide instant scouting reports with attached video of amateur and pro players, and the baseball operations staff and scouts now can use it outside of the Coors Field offices.

Half the teams in the NFL and numerous baseball, basketball and hockey teams use PlayerLync, which works on iPads and Windows 8 tablets.
