What You’ll Need
The following materials are necessary, but not provided by Hudl.
A smartphone with the Hudl Focus app downloaded
You need the app to install the camera and check its view.
To install the Hudl Focus mount in your facility, you will need to drill holes into a wall. We strongly suggest you use a power drill to do it.
1⁄4″ Drill Bit or 3⁄16″ Masonry Bit
To ensure the holes you drill are the right size for the hardware provided, use a 1⁄4″ drill bit for anything but concrete. If drilling into concrete, use a 3⁄16″ masonry bit instead.
If you’re mounting in concrete, you’ll also need a 5⁄16″ nutsetter. This will help you drive the provided screws into the wall.
A crooked mount will give you crooked video. Use a simple bubble level to ensure you get it right the first time.
Ladder or Scissor Lift
Installing your camera at a height and distance to capture the full court may require a ladder or scissor lift.
An ethernet cable is not provided, but a wired internet connection is required. Be sure to purchase a cable long enough to reach from your camera to the ethernet port you intend to use. We recommend an ethernet cable no longer than 150 feet to ensure a quality network connection.
Extension Cord (Optional)
An extension cord is not always necessary, but if there’s no power outlet within 5 feet of your camera, you might need one to power the device. The camera can’t function without it.
If you’re mounting from a beam or rafter you may need some additional hardware. Check out our recommendations here.
