Ice Hockey | Recommended Recording Workflow

The right equipment

    • Invest in up-to-date equip­ment like a high def­i­n­i­tion (HD) cam­era or new­er iPad for reli­able record­ing and high qual­i­ty video.
    • Use a tri­pod so you have a sta­ble, smooth stream when record­ing and review­ing video. No one wants to watch an entire game of shaky video.

    How to record

    • Record from the high­est angle and as close to cen­ter ice as pos­si­ble to get the best view. Right along the red line is ideal.
    • Lim­it poten­tial obstruc­tions to the cam­era such as fans, net­ting, etc.
    • Don’t zoom too close­ly or puck watch so you miss what’s hap­pen­ing on the rest of the ice. Try to cap­ture all play­ers and the entire zone at a time.
    • Hold the iPad in land­scape mode for best results.

    Other recording tips

      • Get plen­ty of score­board shots – after each goal, penal­ty, peri­od, and at the end of the game.
      • Focus on cap­tur­ing jer­sey num­bers to help with tag­ging shots and assists. 
      • Instruct all play­ers on your team to leave jer­seys untucked from breez­ers. Add fight-straps” to jer­seys if pos­si­ble to keep num­bers visible. 
      • Make sure you record your entire game. Video that’s miss­ing a por­tion of the game or is out of order can’t be bro­ken down by our analysts.
      • Only pause the record­ing between peri­ods or at long breaks. Even if there is a call in ques­tion, keep record­ing so you can catch the outcome.
