Basketball | Recommended Recording Workflow
Check out these recording tips to make sure you get the best video for your team and for Hudl Assist.
How you should record
- Record the game in high-definition.
- If a telephoto lens is available, attach it to your camera or iPad to improve film quality.
- Keep things in focus. It’s hard to tag what you can’t see.
- If possible, record with audio.
- Hold the iPad in landscape mode for best results.
What to record
- Capture the entire court but avoid zooming.
- Record the scoreboard often and always at the end of every period.
- Capture as many referee signals as possible.
- Make sure jersey numbers are visible.
Where to record from
- Set up a hard drive camera or iPad at center court, approximately 10 rows up.
- Record from a vantage point that shows all players on the court.
- Limit potential obstructions to the camera: fans, equipment, etc.
Tips for recording with an iPad
- Make sure you have the latest version of the Hudl app.
- Check the iPad for software updates.
- Clean up the storage on your iPad to make room for your game.
Reasons your game might be rejected by Assist
- If you submit a scrimmage that does not follow normal game rules.
- The video is out of order.
- The zoom of video prevents us from seeing the whole court.
- The game is filmed from a bad angle.
- There is something in the way of the camera.
- There are multiple games in one event.
