Coaches can adjust personnel, pre-snap motion, and many other details while building their custom 3D Playbook playlist. The playlist can be played at any speed so that players get more reps while engaging in kinesthetic learning.

The formation screen in 3D Playbook allows a coach to change and customize details of each play, including pre-snap motions. On the set-up screen, individuals show up at Xs for defense and Os for offense. Lines show their motion.

3D Playbook takes coaches and football players beyond video with play customization. Optimize practice time by increasing reps without risking injury.

May 20, 2024 — TITUSVILLE, Fla. — 8K Solutions 3D Playbook is now available to help athletes gain more reps, keep backup players ready for any game situation, and allow coaches to matchup against any opponent in a matter of minutes. 3D Playbook takes coaches and players beyond video to insert them into any situation.

“Once you’re in 3D Playbook, you can customize virtually any element of a game including personnel, pre-game shifts, and much more,” said Bob White, president and chief revenue officer of 8K Solutions.

“Unlike video, players can work through each play from various perspectives and speeds for more reps each week.”

White said 3D Playbook, especially when paired with Walk Through Wall by 8K Solutions, optimizes practice opportunities for every player and position group.

“3D Playbook helps every player see opponents from multiple perspectives which cannot be found on traditional game footage. It can help new arrivals get up to speed quicker and prepares backup players for any game situation.”

In addition to broad customization abilities, 3D Playbook is an effective coaching tool because of its smooth graphics. Typically, data-based movements can be bouncy as they transition between points. 8K Solutions built a proprietary graphics conversion engine that smooths movement and allows for changes in speed.

The technology has been beta-tested by several NFL and NCAA Div. I football teams. User feedback confirms its power.

“3D Playbook is the best way to teach pre-snap alignment and assignment, hands down,” said a Power 4 defensive coach.

Others noted it’s ease-of-use.

“We were able to jump right in and use 3D Playbook immediately. It’s a valuable tool,” said an NFL coach.

3D Playbook license purchase includes ongoing 8K Solutions support and updates. To learn more about 3D Playbook, visit 8ksolutions.com/3DPlaybook.
