Installation Requirements

We don’t want your cam­era to miss a moment of the action, so make sure it’s mount­ed in the cor­rect loca­tion. Need help deter­min­ing where to install your cam­era? Check out our place­ment guide or use the chart below. 

Your Camera Needs

Because

A fixed loca­tion at half court, no more than five feet to the left or right of the cen­ter line, and no less than 10 feet back from the sideline.

A cen­ter court loca­tion is the only way to cap­ture the entire field of play. 

Access to a ground­ed 110v AC pow­er outlet.

The cam­era runs on 110v AC pow­er. If the pro­vid­ed pow­er cord isn’t long enough to reach an out­let, feel free to use an exten­sion cord. 

To have the score­board in view. The score­board should be mount­ed on a dif­fer­ent wall than the cam­era, and should not be blocked by a ban­ner or backboard.

If the cam­era can see the score­board, we can use it to pro­vide score con­text on your livestream. During instal­la­tion, the score­board needs to be turned on with all dig­its illumninated.

Your camera’s required height depends on how far it’ll be from the side­line. Once you mea­sure the dis­tance from the court’s side­line to the wall you intend to mount your cam­era on, use the chart below to deter­mine how high it needs to be.
