Real Life Videos
All my Real Life Videos contain an altitude and speed profile, so that the player software can control the resistance of the training role, as well as the playback speed of the video is adapted to the current training situation.
As the only RLV producer I offer a free update service on the control files. Therefore also owners of older videos will benefit of ongoing improvements of my production process, as these old RLVs will be adapted.
I am very proud that I am the only manufacturer able to offer a perfect synchronized video across different platforms. Due to the production process of the control files no other manufacturer was able to provide this (control files generated for Tacx systems system aren't 100% in sync on other systems — or they are not in sync on Tacx).
My RLVs can also be played on the DVD — if the playback software supports this.
All my RLVs are running with the blue TacxFortius software, all versions of the Tacx Trainer Software and the Tacx Videoplayer. There is also the GPS data on many DVDs, so Real Life Training (Google Earth) is possible (but not simultaneously with video — this isn't allowed by Tacx).
Please notice the hints on my Tacx Software Supportpage if you are using the Tacx Trainer Software.
My videos are supported by the UniVET System training software. Detailed information and the required setup program can be found here on my UniVET Supportpage.
Also Kettler World Tours 2.0 supports now my Real Life Videos. All informations, and the required setup program can be found on my KWT 2.0 page.
Trainers and Ergometers
For because of the variety of trainers and ergometers please see the manufacturer websites what training equipment is supported (that is independent of my real life videos).
Hints to the Real Life Videos
You find an overview which RLVs are compatible with which player software, which include GPS data and some other information at the compatibility list. Please also notice the setup hints. Additionally you'll find here a list of all courses of the RLVs.
Minimum system requirements: P4 (single core 3.0 GHz), 2 GB RAM, 500 GB harddisk, DVD+R(DL), DirectX 9-compatible graphics card with 256 MB RAM, resolution 1024 x 768.

All Videos are info programs according to § 14 JuSchG.
The videos run only on some DVD players, which is very brand depending. It is best to first download e.g. the Challenge Roth demo and install it for Ergoplanet. The video is then located in the selected destination directory (which can of course be changed). Burn this avi-file to a DVD and try it out on the DVD player.
We use DVD-R blanks for our Real Life Videos. Please ensure compatibility with your player (espacially BD-players).
