What we do
iSochal offers a technological service to allow its users to propose and/or participate in short, sport-inspired video challenges, to manage their challenges and to identify the best performers of challenges.
We aim to create a global niche platform for sports enthusiasts, whether pro or amateur, so they can challenge each other in skill-based events. Our favourite example of an iSochal challenge is a 3 point basketball challenge, where two team members try to shoot the most baskets, using one ball from the three point line, under 1 minute. And they are up against other teams around the world. Basically, so long as you can record it properly with a smartphone and it’s under 3 minutes, your imagination is the only limit to our sport challenges.
How we do it
Our sophisticated platform allows users to create their own challenges and to participate in existing ones. Each challenge has its own rules, so users are invited to read them before deciding whether or not to participate. In order to participate, you must be a registered user and have downloaded the app. After selecting a challenge, you record your attempts through the app using your smartphone and all submissions are placed using the app. We have incorporated Artificial Intelligence which automatically gives you the results for selected sports. We have devised a way for you to sync your phone with your friend’s allowing you to record a challenge attempt from two different angles. And by providing you with a merged video playback and by encrypting your videos we are giving you a greater assurance that all video submissions are authentic and that no one is cheating.
Fairplay, good sportsmanship, serious competition, transparency and reputation. These words sum up our attitude towards sport and towards iSochal. We hope to create a community that upholds these ideas.
Why we do it
First of all, we love sport. We have all played sport at various levels, from completely amateur to national championships. We have all dreamed about being the best at something. Our idea is to put together amateurs and professionals in one place, challenging each other in specific challenges, away from the traditional games. The thought that anyone, amateur or pro, might be able to win a non-standard 30m dash, or shoot more cross goals in football…. we find this thought irresistible and have done our best to provide a platform that can make it a reality.
Second, we want to get people off their phones. We want to be part of a movement that views smartphones as a tool and not as a dependency. iSochal’s aim is to be the global source of sport-inspired challenges that take place in the real world.
Finally, we want to offer an opportunity for people with varying goals to use sport to their advantage. We hope that youth groups and coaches will incorporate the use of iSochal into their programmes, to promote fun and healthy competition in sport. Charity organisations can use our platform as a tool for raising awareness in an original and fun way. Doctors and trainers can advise appropriate challenges, to help motivate those of us who need a little more encouragement to keep active.

iSochal can be used on different levels by everyone.
