Hudl Focus Flex FAQ

We have the answers for all your questions about Focus Flex, our portable smart camera fully integrated with Hudl.

The camera can capture anything on your football pitch. The camera uses AI player tracking to automatically pan and zoom to follow the action for football.

Once you get to the pitch you’ll set up your camera with the tripod and included stabilization kit, then calibrate the camera to your field using the Focus app. Once calibrated you can begin recording right away and have the ability to extend or stop the recording, livestream and monitor your camera status from the palm of your hand.

Focus Flex cameras have 500GB of storage that allows you to record over 100 matches.

Yes. In fact, it’s the only camera that uploads automatically to Hudl. Focus Flex automatically uploads your match in-real time via 4G data plan, Wi-Fi, external hotspot right after the match.

With no additional processing, you’ll be able to get to your game video quickly to make adjustments with your team. Other smart camera systems require you to download the video before uploading it to Hudl yourself.
