Wondering how it all works? Watch the video to find out.
When you have an athletic department package, any away or neutral games played at Focus-equipped venues will be automatically captured and shared with you. You won’t need to worry about manual uploads or exchanges after the game—you’ll have the film as soon as it uploads.
The best part? Managing your Hudl schedule is now how you’ll manage your exchanges. You simply have to add your opponents in your schedule entries. If they have a Focus camera, the automatic exchange will happen immediately after the game is over.
If you’re playing in a gym or stadium with Focus, the camera is already set up and ready to record every second.
When you have better film of away games, you’ll have better insights for you and better analysis for your team.
It’s not just varsity—every team playing in a Focus-equipped venue can benefit from high quality video footage.
“A film exchange at our place has saved me hours through being able to instantly share film with the other team’s coach. If they want it for the bus ride home, they can have it within 15 minutes.”
Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach, Emporia State
“I have really enjoyed the exchange network. This year we were a bit sketchy about not recording ourselves but lightened up by the end of the season and it was awesome just having the video in our account.”
Basketball Coach, Mason City High School
To ensure you get a copy of your video on the road, you’ll need to add the scheduled event on Hudl.com with the correct game location, date, time and opponent. We'll take care of the rest with a little magic behind the scenes ensuring the video is automatically uploaded to you and your opponent's library only.
To put it simply, we’re automating the Hudl exchange process to save you some time and avoid the hassle of requesting game video from an opponent.
Game video is uploaded automatically to you and your opponent's library and will be shared with your team upon upload.
The most important step is making sure your schedule entry is accurate with the correct game location, date, time and opponent. When entering your opponent, be sure to pick an option from the drop-down menu and pay close attention to which team and school you're choosing. (If your opponent doesn't appear as an option in the drop-down, they likely don't have Hudl and therefore don't have Focus either.)
If a team attempts to schedule a recording that overlaps with a pre-existing event, both the team creating the event and the team with the pre-existing event are notified when scheduling the event on Hudl.com and through the Hudl Focus app.
This serves two purposes. First, to help coaches understand when they might be scheduling an event incorrectly, and second, to ensure everyone practicing or playing in front of a Focus camera knows exactly when the camera is being used.
This feature is already available as part of Hudl’s athletic department package. When your whole program is on one subscription, everyone will have access to Hudl and all our other products, including Hudl Focus and the Focus Exchange Network.
