HOW TO SHARE YOUR HUDL GAMES WITH COLLEGE COACHES
VOLLEYBALL | RECOMMENDED RECORDING WORKFLOW
Use these recording tips to get the best Hudl Assist breakdowns for volleyball.
Where to record from
Record behind your side of the net. Have your device far enough away to see both deep corners or high enough to get the full court in frame.
Switch sides between sets. This guarantees a great view of your players, not the net.
How you should record
Only pause at timeouts or between sets. Even if there is a call in question, keep recording so you can catch the outcome.
If you have a telephoto lens, attach it to your iPad or camera to improve film quality.
Keep things in focus. Analysts can’t tag what they can’t see.
Use the tripod to avoid shaky video.
Go easy on the zoom. Starting with a good vantage point can save you from overusing the zoom function.
Hold the iPad in landscape mode for best results.
What to record
Make sure you can clearly see jersey numbers and referee signals as you record.
Take quick scoreboard shots throughout the match—especially at the end of each set. Or try to include the scoreboard in your shot to make it easier to follow along.
