Equipment Test & Software Update (PlayerFocus)

Before you start

  1. Make sure your equipment is charged. We recommend charging your camera for 24 hours before Tracing for the first time or running an equipment test.

Hands on time for this equipment test will be about 30 minutes.

Create a test game

  1. Log in to your Trace Teams iOS app and tap the ? button

  2. Tap (+ Trace a New Game)

  3. Enter the opponent CMEquipmentTest, select Today, choose the next available time slot, and set the Half Lengths for 20 minutes

  4. Tap (Trace Now)

Start your test game

After you tap (Trace Now) we’ll run through the equipment as if we were Tracing a real game. Follow the instructions in the Trace Teams App to start your game. You do not need to set up your tripod.

Place your camera outside for about 20 minutes.

End your test game

Return to your Trace Teams App, tap (Stop Tracing) and follow all remaining steps to Stop Tracing.

Upload the test data

You can find detailed uploading instructions here.

  1. Plug your camera into ethernet, then plug in your power cable.

  2. You can follow your upload progress in the Trace Teams iOs app. (This could take a few hours depending on your internet speed. )

Our team will let you know if the test was successful once your data is processed. We will not send you your test game.

Update software

Your camera updates whenever it's plugged in to both power and ethernet. If you just finished an equipment test, your camera will already be updated. If you want to run an update without an equipment test, there's just one simple thing to do:

  • Plug your camera into ethernet, then plug in your power cable. The camera will let you know when it's done updating.

You are done.
