Exchange your Hudl Sideline or other replay system for a New EDGE Replay system..
"At the beginning of this year I was so excited to finally use Hudl Sideline to help our players in between each series. I wish that was the case but all I had was problem after problem and was unable to use the system for our first two region games. After hours on the phone with Hudl and doing whatever they ask me to do nothing seemed to help so I asked for a refund and switched to the EDGE Replay system. I’m not even joking, I did not have one issue or problem the second I used the EDGE Replay system. And thank goodness because it helped us get to a state semi final game this year. I have never given a testimonial in the 25 years that I’ve been a coach but this system deserved one. If you’re thinking about getting a Sideline Replay system I highly recommend EDGE!"

How the Exchange Works
The EDGE Recorders will connect to your existing press box and endzone cameras with an HDMI cable. All you need is a high definition camcorder with an HDMI out port.
The Sport Scope iPad app allows one operator to start and stop the recording of multiple cameras at the same time giving you the same number of clips from each camera angle. All your camera operators have to do is point and zoom the cameras.
After a play is captured by the EDGE Recorder, the play will automatically be sent to every iPad connected to the EDGE Network. Once the play is downloaded to your iPad, you will be able to instantly replay that clip over and over.
After the game is finished and you have an internet connection, upload your video clips and ODK from each angle to Hudl. Since EDGE Sideline Replay syncs all angles, your intercut will be extremely easy.
For a 2-Angle Replay System, two EDGE Recorders will connect to your existing press box and endzone cameras with an HDMI cable. You will then connect the network cables from the EDGE devices to the appropriate network equipment.
The iPad Connection Point antennas will serve as the access points for your iPads to connect to. If you are in the Press Box, you'll locate the private WiFi network designated as Pressbox and connect in the settings of your iPad. The same procedure applies to iPads on the Sideline.
The Bridge antennas are what allows all data communication between EDGE devices and iPads. Once connected, point your Endzone Bridge antenna at the Pressbox. Perform the same for the Sideline Bridge antenna. In the Pressbox, point its Bridge antenna to the midway point between the Sideline and the Endzone Bridge. Look for the four lights and ensure levelness for optimal polarity and connection strength.
The Endzone Hardcase contains your POE injector, power supply, and Endzone EDGE Replay recording device. The injector is required to give power to the Endzone Bridge antenna, which will send your Endzone replay data to the Pressbox hub. Connect your HDMI cable from camera to the EDGE device and use an additional HDMI cable to stream your camera's video to a monitor screen at the base of your Endzone Camera tower.
After the game is finished and you have an internet connection, upload your video clips and ODK from each angle to Hudl. Since EDGE Sideline Replay syncs all angles, your intercut will be extremely easy. You can download your video and ODK files to the iPad and then drag and drop to Hudl straight from the tablet. Or, use iTunes to transfer your video and ODK files from the iPad to your computer and use Hudl Mercury to upload.
The EDGE App allows the user to have full control over the video playback. Using the speed control meter at the top of the app, you can play each video clip in slow motion and fast forward, both in play and paused modes for simple control. The custom controls of the EDGE App allow forward and rewind with ergonomically positioned thumb buttons over the video player or the play can be scrubbed back and forth using the progress bar feature. Additionally, the play number is positioned in the top left-hand corner so you can quickly see exactly which play you're viewing.
The EDGE App is designed to be very visual in order to help coaches find the plays they want to review fast. Drives are color coded by ODK and all other features were designed with the same intuitive and visual qualities. Draw over the video to visually show your players needed adjustments. You can draw with three colors: blue, red, yellow and can erase the drawings with the undo button. Drawing on the screen is the simplest way to communicate quickly to your players.
EDGE Sideline Replay is the only software that has easy & predictive play tagging. With EDGE Tagging, an assistant coach or student can quickly tag each play with down, distance, hash, YL, play type, play result, net yards and more. EDGE Tagging is also predictive, which means it automatically keeps track of the down, distance, YL, hash, score, time of possession and more. It also predicts the most likely play results for every scenario. The play tagging is so quick and easy that is will become part of your standard workflow, which allows for features such as live game stats and opponent tendencies.
Connect as many EDGE Recorders to the EDGE Network as you want. Each box will automatically connect and sync with the others on the network. Press the record button in the EDGE iPad app and all the boxes will record and stop at the same time. Each angle will then download onto every iPad that is connected to the network.
Switch between angles by using the picture in picture (PIP) screen in the bottom right corner of the video player. The playback of each angle will stay synced as you switch between angles with the PIP.
The EDGE Replay App comes with many built in smart features that save coach's time and allow them to fully use EDGE Instant Replay to find and exploit their opponent's weaknesses. One of those features is the ability to quickly sort through clips based on the tagged information assigned to each play. This allows each coach to tailor the EDGE App to their coaching position and style. Offensive, defensive, and special teams coaches can filter the plays that matter the most to them, which eliminates clutter and gets them viewing the most valuable plays to quickly see what adjustments need to be made. Coaches can also save certain plays to their iPad and bring them into the locker room to show their players during halftime. This can be done without being connected to the wireless network because the plays are saved to the device.
All the video clips that are recorded during a game are saved on the EDGE Recorder & your iPad. The plays can be easily accessed and uploaded to Hudl. You can easily tag each play by ODK, down & distance, hash, YL, play type, net yards, and much more. Each play is is color coordinated based on whether it's an offensive, defensive, or kicking play so they're easily identifiable. Once your video is on Hudl you can then import any ODK/tagging information that you did in your EDGE App into Hudl as well. This will save you time uploading video from your camera to your computer and also save you time coding the game's ODK info as well.
The Sport Scope EDGE Replay app allows you to easily live tag a game with a few simple steps. Live tagging automatically generates in-game stats and opponent tendencies. Once you've begun tagging, when a new play gets recorded, EDGE will automatically assign down and distance to reflect the current position of the ball. Also, all tagged info (Down, Distance, Hash, Play Type, Play Result, YL, etc.) can be easily uploaded into Hudl after each game.

Weighing in at 6 Oz and measuring 4”x 2.5” x 1.5”, the EDGE Recorder is the most compact replay box on the market. The recorder replaces the laptop and capture device that other replay systems use. The recorder is made out of aluminum, is powder coated, and all the ports are labeled for easy setup.
Sensitive components are pre-mounted and protected against harsh weather in our protective cases. All iPad antennas and bridge antennas are rated for outdoor use.
Every component of the EDGE Replay system is pre-installed into small carrying cases with instructions on the inside. This gives you easy plug-and-play access, protection from weather, easy travel, and superior organization.
EDGE Sideline Replay includes all the networking hardware you need to create a private, closed, and powerful Wi-Fi network. Each iPad will connect to the EDGE Network and be able to download every play from the wireless router and antenna. Also, you will never need data packages or the internet to run the EDGE Replay system, it would work in the middle of nowhere.
The EDGE Replay system was designed to have as few parts as possible and to use the best equipment available to create an extremely reliable system. All hardware components are directly connected to each other, the only wireless component is the Wi-Fi network, which works in both large and small stadiums.
The EDGE Sideline Replay system is extremely simple and easy to set up. Everything you need is included in the package and comes with easy to follow instructions. All the hardware is already configured and is plug and play ready when you get it. There are only a few cables to connect, after that you will be ready to start recording your first plays.
The EDGE Recording Box eliminates the need for costly laptops and capture cards.
The EDGE Battery frees you from looking for power outlets in the endzone or sidelines while at home or on the road. The battery powers the endzone angle for 1 View or 2 View systems. We recommend using a power outlet in the press box for your router and antenna; this will ensure a stronger wireless network. Other replay systems may need power outlets in the press box as well as in the endzone and/or on the sidelines for their system to work.
"We enjoyed the system much more than Hudl as we found it much more reliable and it aided us in our run to the semifinals . . ."

"When Hudl Sideline failed us when we needed them the most entering the playoffs, I once again began my search for a product that would work. I am excited to say I have found what I have been looking for in EDGE Replay . . ."
"After a very disappointing experience with Echo1612, I hoped Hudl Sideline would be my answer to replay systems. Unfortunately Hudl Sideline was not ... we continued to have major problems with clips loading, network connection failures, and app crashes. We gave our best effort (both time and money) pouring more funds into the highest recommended equipment and having a full time IT person on hand at our games. When Hudl Sideline failed us when we needed them the most entering the playoffs, I once again began my search for a product that would work.
I am very excited to say I have found what I have been looking for in EDGE Replay. The equipment is very durable and sets up with ease along with the rest of our equipment. Our program purchased the 2 camera system (We also use a large flat screen on the field along with a number of iPads for our spotters in the pressbox and on the field) and it has not disappointed. The clips loaded both views within seconds of play completion and we were able to make adjustments before the next play was called."
