IWWF approved the software application “Video Tape Measure” to measure jump distances. Video Tape Measure runs on Windows 10. It accepts either standard definition or high definition video streams and employs the same concepts as Bob Corson’s Video Jump and Splasheye, so current jump grids can use this new program without any modification to the site. A minimum screen resolution of 1920×1080 is required but can run on laptops with less screen resolution use it on an HDMI-attached external monitor. Video Tape Measure includes an easy-to-use personal video recorder if a jump is missed. One grid is displayed at a time with the ability to switch between four grid setups. You need to furnish your own video capture device – see the discussion in the built-in manual for which capture devices work well with Video Tape Measure and which ones don’t. Video tape Measure can be used for 3-event, barefoot, and sit ski jumping.
The program can be downloaded from the TC Resources webpage in the Slalom, Tricks, and Jump Skiing discipline on the USA Water Ski & Wake Sports website.
