How the Smart Endzone Camera Reduces Film Staff

The new Sport Scope Smart Endzone Camera is already receiving a ton of attention. We can't wait to start shipping in February. In the meantime, you might be wondering about our claim that the Wireless Smart Camera can help reduce your film staff. This post will explain how the Smart Camera features can simplify your video needs and provide for easy multi-tasking.

With the Sport Scope Smart Camera, you'll use our custom app to connect to the system's private network. From there, you can control all connected Smart Cameras and EDGE Replay devices.

To better understand this functionality, imagine, for instance, that you have a Smart Camera in the endzone and an EDGE Replay device connnected to your camera in the press box. Under this scenario you can control the endzone camera and the replay recordings and the replay tagging all from the Sport Scope iPad app. This means one person can operate a number of tasks simultaneously with ease whereas other systems would require at least one additional person to perform the same number of tasks. To further illustrate why, let's examine how the system works in a little more detail...


Instant Replay is Automatic

With EDGE Replay you can connect as many cameras and EDGE devices as you want to the private EDGE Replay network. Then from the EDGE Replay iPad app when you select the record button, this activates all connected cameras/devices simultaneously. When you select "stop recording" from the iPad, the clips from all connected camera angles get downloaded into all the iPads that are connected to the EDGE network. But you still need camera men to film the game from each angle and record to the camera's memory cards if you want backup footage.

Using the Smart Endzone Camera, when you select record, not only is this recording downloaded to the camera's memory card in the traditional way, but the replay is also automatic. The same amazing EDGE technology mentioned above is built into the Smart Camera system. So any other EDGE devices connected to the Smart Camera's network are activated simultaneously when you select record from the iPad. This means one person can control the Smart Endzone Camera from the on screen iPad controls and whenever he selects "record" the replay for all connected camera angles happens automatically. This is what makes the Smart Camera very literally a two-in-one system.


Control Multiple Cameras

If you own two Smart Camera systems, then you can reduce your film staff by even more! With a Smart Endzone Camera system tower and an additional Wireless Smart Camera on a normal tripod in the Press Box, you can control both cameras from a single iPad! So if your coach is only interested in the snap from the End Zone View, then simply go to that live view and move the camera into position. Then, switch back to the Press Box View and follow the play once it starts. Or vice versa.

Once again, because our system is on a single network, when you activate the record button you're simultaneously recording both cameras to your iPad AND to the camera's memory cards! This means all your clips are always synced perfectly. Play #33 from the End Zone View will match perfectly with Play #33 from the Press Box View both in position and in length. Just like with EDGE, this makes Intercut in Hudl a breeze!


On Screen Tagging and Easy Auto-tagging

As mentioned previously, the EDGE instant replay service is built into the Smart Camera system and the Sport Scope Smart Camera iPad app. However, now ODK tagging is even easier. On screen buttons allow the filmer to easily tag the play as offense, defense, or kick right before or as the play is happening. Of course, you can always change the ODK tag of the play afterwards as well.

Additionally, at any time in between plays the operator can select to bring up the virtual football field on screen to input more in-depth tagging for down and distance, pass/run, quarter, custom tags, and more! The interface is incredibly intuitive and is truly auto-tagging because each new play automatically positions your virtual football on the correct line of scrimmage with the correct down and distance to go based on the previous play tags. So all you have to do is drag and drop. And the more you auto-tag, the more the coach has powerful predictive statistics of his opponent's tendencies right at his fingertips. These in-game stats can influence the entire outcome of a football game in a clutch moment.
