In order for a camera to work with Hudl Sideline, it must be able to record in 720p have a live HDMI output. This means the camera can send video and data through an HDMI output as it records.

Follow these steps to make sure your camera is compatible:

  1. Make sure the camera has an external memory card.
  2. Connect the camera to an external monitor using the HDMI output.
  3. Press the record button on the camera.
  4. Check that the external monitor displays what's being recorded.

If the external monitor displays the video feed, your camera should work with Sideline. If it does not display the feed, you will need to look into using a different camera.
