This article provides you with the best practices to follow when recording with your Veo Cam to get better results out of your recordings.
1. Required conditions
Daylight and/or evenly well-lit environment.
The camera is secure and stable (we don’t recommend using it in strong wind).
Minimal activity around the pitch (avoid other balls/players).
2. Check before recording
- The camera has enough charge. We recommend charging for at least 4 hours before recording.
- You have installed the Veo Camera app on your device. Click here to get the iOS app or here to get the Android app.
- The Veo Cam has free storage space. You can check this on the camera settings page of the app.
- The lenses are clean and free of dust, fingerprints, and/or smudges.
3. Set up and record
- Avoid lights directly pointing into the lenses. Make sure the sun or lights are behind the camera when setting up.
- Place the tripod 3-5 meters from the sideline, aligned with the centerline.
- Attach the Veo Cam to the tripod, and then turn it on.
- Raise the tripod to the maximum height.
- Connect to the camera and make sure all four corners are visible on the preview.
- If needed, adjust the tripod for better alignment with the centerline.
- Press the record button and let the Veo Cam do the rest of the work. Enjoy your game!
- Always remember to stop the recording once your match is over.
If you're planning to record multiple games at a tournament, for example, avoid recording more than one game on a single recording. We strongly suggest you hit the stop button after each game and start a new recording for every new game. Keep in mind recordings can't be trimmed in the platform.
This is especially important since the system might reject recordings longer than 8 hours due to their size. Having more than one game in a recording can also impact the accuracy of AI features, like automatic highlights and Veo Analytics, and lastly, it makes it difficult to assign recordings to the correct teams.
Important note: Start your recording only after the camera has been placed in the correct position (tripod at the maximum height and aligned with the centerline). Starting a recording and then changing the camera's position can cause the AI to have difficulty selecting corners and following the ball, resulting in bad quality videos.
