Do I need to have internet access?
Can we upload game data and video to video sharing services?
Yes. We have an export wizard that creates a video & data export compatible with your video sharing server (i.e., watchgamefilm.com, HUDL, etc.). You can see a demo of it on our video page.
What is the difference between Smart Video Replay and other solutions?
We are free. We are the most powerful. We synchronize multiple camera recordings with one computer for a single play record with multiple angles.
How do I get updates and how often?
Their is a “check for updates” button you can press and it will update if one is available. We typically put out one update during June / July for Football Season.
Why don’t you sell hardware?
Because what is best for you is a hardware and wireless network system design that will actually work and that you can support and supply yourself — because nobody is going to help you at 7pm on a Friday night when something breaks so you need to have a great computer / network person who is willing to help your program and run your replay system.
Is there a guide to help me purchase the right hardware?
Yes. Our Hardware Guide lists each component and the different hardware options available for each component — components that we have extensively tested. We provide diagrams, pictures, part numbers and our review of each device. We also recommend the correct rugged Pelican cases to keep your equipment safe for transportation and storage. We have been doing replay for over 5 years and computer software and hardware systems for over 30 years. We know what works and what does not work. As one of our California coaches said to us “we played 16 games and won state and during those 16 games our SVR system was perfect while other teams systems regularly failed.”
I have questions. Who can I contact?
Do you offer user support?
What does a technology company know about football?
Plenty. We are a software company who, since 1999, has been led by a President & CEO who played football at all levels and was a head coach at all levels — high school, D1 and the NFL. We also have an advisory board of coaches who currently coach in high school, college and the pros.
Can I use it for any sport?
Yes. Any activity at your school on as many computers as you want…
Do you have a playbook option?
Yes. It can also be used to whiteboard during a game. The solution is powerful yet simple and makes football sense.
Do I need a computer for each camera?
No. Our software, running on a single computer, can control up to 2 cameras. You can use one computer for each camera if that is what you want to do.
Can I use more than 1 camera?
Yes. You can use 2 cameras with a single computer.
What computer operating system does Smart Video Replay server use?
Our server (the computer that records the video) uses Windows 10.
What computer tablet does Smart Video Replay client use?
We have Smart Video Replay for the Microsoft Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 and Smart Video Replay for iPad.
What Microsoft Windows tablet do you recommend?
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (or 4). We encourage you to pick one up and try it… like us, you will be amazed. You will have an incredibly powerful tablet to use for replay during the game and a powerful laptop computer for everyday use… all in one. With the Surface Pro 3 we are also able to synchronize server video to your local drive so you can take the tablet with you into the locker room (out of wireless range) and still access your video.
Who designed and developed the Smart Video Replay software program?
Designed by football coaches. Developed by software engineers.
Is there any Sony Multi Terminal cable extension that we can use to have our remote wired to our endzone camera?
Yes. We found one and it works great! It is made by Studio 1 Productions. https://www.studio1productions.com/VPR1-Cables.htm
