​OASIS collates each of these independent sources and time-synchronizes each data and video source to a common timecode which is made available via API connections to the CARAT courtside solution. The Coach’s Portal allows post-match, online access to player performances.

NET SPIDER LET-DETECTION SYSTEM

Revolutionizing let detection, Net Spider is a net sensor system that communicates with the chair umpire's handheld unit, ensuring accurate calls during matches. Net Spider features a sensor attached to the center of the net strap, strategically positioned to detect any net disturbances during play. When activated by a button on the handheld unit, the sensor immediately relays information to the umpire, allowing for swift and accurate let calls. Net Spider offers flexibility in operation, with the option to function either wirelessly or wired, adapting to various court setups and preferences. Note: While Net Spider excels in let detection, it is not designed to start or stop the serve clock.
