Indoor Technical Requirements

Hudl Focus has cer­tain net­work require­ments for con­nect­ing to Hudl servers to record and upload video. If your orga­ni­za­tion can­not do the below, we can­not sup­port Hudl Focus at your facility.

Network Setup

A wired net­work con­nec­tion with inter­net access is required. A net­work port near the mount­ing loca­tion is pre­ferred. You’ll need to use a stan­dard Cat5e/​Cat6 cable. Hudl Focus can­not con­nect via Wi-Fi.

Consistent upload speeds of 5Mbps or faster are required. Hudl Focus uploads HD video. A reli­able net­work is cru­cial in get­ting your video online. You can check your inter­net speed at hudl​.com/​s​p​e​e​dtest.

Whitelisting & Firewall Configuration

The ports Hudl Focus needs access to are used for out­go­ing traf­fic only. They are not lis­ten­ing or used for incom­ing traf­fic. Your organization’s fire­wall can still pro­tect from incom­ing traf­fic as normal.

Ports

All of the data from the Hudl Focus Camera is trans­ferred via TCP. If pos­si­ble, con­tact your IT depart­ment and have them open up the nec­es­sary ports below.
