Computer

Refer to the rec­om­men­da­tions on this page.


Tablet

Hudl Replay is com­pat­i­ble with the fol­low­ing iPad devices:

iPad - 2017 Model or higher

iPad Pro — All generations


Primary Capture Device

AJA U-TAP SDI or U-TAP HDMI

The AJA U-TAP devices are high­ly rec­om­mend­ed for Hudl Sportscode live cap­ture. Simple set­up, no dri­vers, and high­er res­o­lu­tions make these devices ide­al for any sce­nario. If you have a 2017 or above MacBook Pro, you’ll need to pur­chase a USB-C to USB adapter. Purchasing a sec­ond U-TAP as a back­up is encouraged.

Pair either U-TAP device with a Decimator MD-HX Miniature HDMI/SDI Cross Converter to con­vert­ the sig­nal to a desired res­o­lu­tion and uti­lize any HDMI/SDI connection.

Warning:

The Blackmagic Mini Recorder can only be used with Mac OS Mojave in Hudl Sportscode.

Wireless Connection

Please note, each set­up for wire­less is dif­fer­ent. The fol­low­ing require­ments include all the list­ed acces­sories along with a spe­cif­ic num­ber of wire­less access points:

  1. Ethernet to the Sideline — A wire­less access point for each Replay view­ing loca­tion (gen­er­al­ly a sin­gle access point on the side­line, option­al­ly one next to the cap­ture station).
  2. Capture on the Sideline — One sin­gle wire­less access point for the side­line Replay view­ing loca­tion next to the cap­ture station.
  3. Wireless to the Sideline — Two wire­less access points for both the cap­ture sta­tion and side­line loca­tion (devices will com­mu­ni­cate with each other).

Video cables (depend­ing on set up):

Picking up at least two of each cable will not only help you to adapt to any sit­u­a­tion, but ensure there’s always a back­up on hand. Additionally, con­sid­er pur­chas­ing longer eth­er­net cables based on each venue.

Info:

Note that the MacBook Pro should always be con­nect­ed via eth­er­net to the EdgeSwitch that hosts the main wire­less access point.
