Meet Hudl Focus, Your New Cameraman to Record Basketball Games

Whether you’re look­ing for a smart cam­era with hands-free tech­nol­o­gy, com­plete Hudl inte­gra­tion, or livestream­ing capa­bil­i­ties, Hudl Focus stands above all oth­er options. Find out why.

Modern bas­ket­ball is a fast-paced world that has pushed coach­ing staff and analy­sis depart­ments to stream­line their work­flows, in order to cre­ate more effi­cient and effec­tive eval­u­a­tions of play­ers’ per­for­mances and devel­op­ment. When think­ing about your own process and analy­sis work­flow, one of the first things to assess is how you cap­ture and share your team’s per­for­mances on the court.

Traditional hand-held cam­eras are ade­quate for record­ing games and prac­tices, but the need for ded­i­cat­ed, reli­able resources can often mean they fall short in stream­lin­ing coach­ing work­flows or pro­vid­ing con­sis­tent, high-qual­i­ty video from the per­fect angle. 

That’s where Hudl Focus comes in. It’s a pro­fes­­­sion­al-grade cam­era that not only han­dles the record­ing of your bas­ket­ball games, but also the upload­ing and shar­ing of game footage — all automatically.

A Smart Camera That Simplifies the Coaching Process

Hudl Focus is the only cam­era that comes with com­plete Hudl inte­gra­tion. This means your bas­ket­ball games and prac­tices are auto­mat­i­cal­ly record­ed and uploaded to Hudl, sav­ing you time to focus on what mat­ters most —eval­u­at­ing per­for­mances and devel­op­ing your players.

One part I use Focus for is the games. So I have the match sched­ule and the cam­eras start when the game starts. I use it for prac­tice as well — I record every prac­tice. For prac­tice I use mul­ti­ple cam­era angles for analy­sis and dur­ing live play I use the cam­era that fol­lows the ball,” said Hermann Paar, head coach of BBC Gréngewald Hueschtert.

The Focus footage is qual­i­ty and I can send high­lights and video cuts for all play­ers to their Hudl online account for their use. This is enough for what we need, to send the video cuts to the play­ers on their smart­phones or lap­tops to show game films from here in the gym. So for that, it’s per­fect and good com­mu­ni­ca­tion in that way.”

Consistent, High-Quality Video From the Perfect Angle

Hudl Focus also pro­vides access to HD video from the per­fect angle, ensur­ing your team nev­er miss­es an impor­tant moment on the court.

And with real-time ball track­ing and 180-degree panoram­ic high-qual­i­­ty video, coach­es and ath­letes can be con­fi­dent they’ll uncov­er pre­vi­ous­ly unfore­seen details that accel­er­ate the devel­op­ment process.
