About Your Mounting Plate
How It Works
The mounting plate attaches to the wall or pressbox, or another flat surface depending on your facility. The camera arm then slides onto and is held in place by the mounting plate. This Hudl Focus camera should be permanently installed at a specific location. Cameras are activated based on each individual playing surface—moving it, without reactivating, may interfere with how it follows the play.
How do I know if I’ve installed my mounting plate correctly?
Your mounting plate should be installed on a flat surface with the correct hardware based on your installation surface type. See more details on what you’ll need. Your camera’s height depends on how far it’ll be from the sideline—check out our placement guidelines for more information.
You’ll know you’ve installed the mounting plate (and the camera) in the correct location by checking the view in the Hudl Focus app.
Tips & Tricks
- Use a bubble level to ensure your mounting plate is level. A level mounting plate is important to capture quality video. A crooked mounting plate creates crooked video, which can’t be corrected.
- Before installing, make sure you have the right tools and hardware for your install surface. Find out what you’ll need.
