The Tarn Group (previously Siliconcoach) is a New Zealand owned and operated software company. When originally created, Siliconcoach aimed to help athletes identify areas for improvement in their performance with a video-analysis tool.[1][2] The Tarn Group now delivers digital solutions in sports, health, education and retail and their products and services have been sold globally.[3]


The Tarn Group was founded in 1997 by New Zealander Joe Morrison, previously having completed 6 years of army training and gaining a Masters in Biomechanics from the University of Otago he used his biomechanics skills to create the video–capture software program Siliconcoach. Originally aimed to help athletes identify areas for improvement, the application of video analysis soon grew to aid other areas.
