Veo Technologies

Veo is the simple and portable sports camera. In Veo, our goal is to help every player and team take their game and sport up a level. We do it with a camera that can automatically record sport and a state-of-the-art analysis platform, all powered by AI. Recording grassroots sport used to be an inconvenient task. It required an elevated platform, an expensive camera, and a skilled camera operator who could stay focused throughout the entire game. After a match or training session, a qualified person should cut and edit videos, and clubs needed a server with space for numerous full recordings of matches. With a combination of advanced AI technology and ease of use, we have made this whole process easy and available for everybody. Now, Veo provides the opportunity for clubs, teams and players to live-stream games at the touch of a button in football. This allows friends, family, and fans to experience the greatest moments when it happens and when it matters - in real time!

“The AOC Sport Curriculum Conference left a spring in my step with regards to the future of FE, my students, and my own practice as an educator. Some great opportunities to take away tools and practices used by other colleges that can be blended in to some of the great work we already do.”

“A great opportunity as someone new to managing sport in FE to raise awareness and contacts. The range of resources available to access and the positive challenge to approaching Teaching and Learning in a diverse way was refreshing. The ability to openly debate the challenges ahead with curriculum reform and skills demand.”

“The AoC Sport Conference was a fantastic day! It was a great way to network with other sport staff from other colleges. The conference was a great way to update staff on the changes that we face but also, we could share our opinions and concerns. I left feeling extremely motivated to implement positive change into our department. Looking forward to next year!”

“This conference is a must for those teachers/leaders that want their department to reach the next level. The quality of the discussion and delivery of the sessions was outstanding. The most thought-provoking conference I have attended.”
