Officials from sports media and technology solutions provider XOS Technologies have announced that the company has licensed Electronic Arts' TDT Engine used in its various football video games, such as Madden NFL 07 and NCAA Football 07. Terms of the license agreement were not disclosed, however, according to XOS, the technology will be used in the development of the XOS PlayAction Simulator, a line of training simulators for collegiate and professional football teams. XOS notes that the software line will include functionality such as customizable playbooks, diagrams and testing sequences to “better prepare athletes for specific opponents.” In addition, the simulator will feature built-in teaching and reporting tools “so coaches can analyze and track the tactical-skill development of their athletes.” The most sophisticated product in the line, called XOS PlayAction Simulator VR, integrates with the XOS SportMotion motion capture studio, and uses motion tracking capabilities and head-mounted display technology to allow athletes to look around, run and throw in a virtual environment. “The simulator is built on our TDT Engine, which utilizes the same technologies and game play found in our popular Madden NFL game franchise,” said Steven Chiang, general manager for EA Tiburon. “Today’s athletes will be able to sit down and start benefiting immediately, by learning interactively in a familiar interactive environment. At EA, we’re excited to work with coaches and athletes to find new ways to leverage our technology while incorporating even more realism into our titles.”
