LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 12, 2023--

“At Hudl, our mission is to make every moment count. Focus Flex ensures our customers can easily capture every moment, and get their high-definition film quickly and conveniently no matter where they’re playing,” said Hudl’s CEO David Graff. “Our suite of Focus cameras makes video capture a seamless experience and Focus Flex is changing the game for teams at all levels—removing the biggest pain point of capturing quality video on the go. Flex will give time back to our coaches and give athletes more access to their training and game film to review, improve, share and get recruited.”
Developed over an eighteen month period, Focus Flex was designed with maximum portability, ease of use and features high-definition video quality and four hours of battery life. Once mounted on its tripod, the Flex camera is controlled via the Hudl Focus app allowing for simple calibration, hands-free video capture and live upload directly to Hudl.

Video is available immediately post match, giving athletes the capability to quickly and seamlessly create and share their highlights with recruiters and fans.
Created with soccer clubs in mind, Hudl Focus Flex was tested by over 90 clubs across the United States.
