Trace vs Veo for Recording Soccer Games
See why teams prefer Trace over Veo to record soccer games.
Unlike Veo, Trace is more than just a soccer camera recording raw game footage. Trace tracks each player around the field and automatically creates video highlights.
Within a few hours of the final whistle, soccer highlights are sent to each player’s Trace account where they can watch, download, and share. Goals, progressions, touch chains… each play is auto-tagged so players can use video to train skills.
Compare Veo against Trace when it comes to:
👀 Auto-Recording Camera & Angles
TraceCam records games automatically so you can set it and forget. Our MultiCam feature allows anyone to place their phone along the sidelines and AI technology stitches Trace camera footage with phone video to create EPIC soccer highlights.
Veo’s camera shoots from the entire pitch but cannot capture additional angles.
✂️ Video Editing
Trace uses GPS sensors to track each player on the field and edit their unique soccer highlights after the game.
Veo cannot tell who is who on the field. Users must manually edit the film on their own time.
⬆️ Upload Process
Trace can record up to 8 games at events and processes video within 4-6 hours of the final whistle.
Veo takes longer to process games due to larger file size and time to upload varies drastically among Veo users who have posted online on the topic.
Trace users spend 1 minute and 36 seconds watching full, raw game footage but spend 5.5x that time watching their own highlights - that’s 1,100 highlights views per game!
Veo users view full game footage less than 5 times per game.
Full game recordings and highlights are delivered within 4-6 hours of the game and sorted into personalized playlists in each player’s Trace account.
Veo does not automatically deliver personalized moments or playlists.
Goals, progressions, touch chains… Trace automatically tags every play and adds tags for where it happened (box, offensive third, middle third, and defensive third) and when (Half 1, Half 2) so you can easily analyze every game!
Users must manually add tags for things like attack, corner, defense, and anything a player might want to focus on. Players can create unlimited tags to sort their game highlights. Goals are flagged on the timeline.
🎥 Video Quality
TraceCam 2 shoots in 1080p and is powered by Trace's pro-quality computational capture engine for smooth panning, sharp resolution, and stability even in windy conditions.
Veo records in 1080p in a panoramic shot. The frame rate is good, and you can manually zoom in later when analyzing the video. But the larger files mean that the video takes a very long time to upload.
📊 Performance Metrics
Trace offers a real-time view of all players on the field and a heatmap of where they spend most of their time to allow coaches to manage the shape of the game. Performance metrics also include minutes played, distance ran, top speed, max efforts, and stamina.
Veo offers an additional subscription for analytics which includes heatmaps, player maps, and several team statistics. They do not offer individual performance metrics.
🎓 Recruiting or Player Profile
Trace highlights and metrics are integrated with Trace iD and National and Tournament Leaderboards, giving you more opportunities to get noticed.
Every player gets highlights from every game delivered directly to their Trace iD profile, which has a unique URL so players can send to college coaches.
Veo does not offer features around college recruiting. For every match, players need to download video, upload it to a hosting platform, and use tools like iMovie to edit highlights for college coaches. This is time-consuming or impossible without editing software skills. Players tend to share their Veo footage with recruiters via YouTube or HUDL.
👫 Customer Support
Trace support staff are located in the United States and respond to email inquiries in under an hour, on average. On-the-field phone support is available.
Veo operates primarily out of Europe, and their support staff can be very slow to respond if you're based in the U.S.A.
Trace will ship your camera within 5 days of placing your order, meaning you can start recording games within a week.
Veo wait times differ from customer to customer, but many customers are now waiting months to receive the camera they ordered.
Trace is used by more than 5,000 soccer teams and clubs across the country.
