Lens focusing and aiming

It's important that the camera lenses are in focus.

The lenses are pre-focused before shipping though.

To focus, place a ball on the center line of the enclosure and point the camera at the ball.

Switch to "Video Steam Mode" in the CP's camera window so that you see the captured images.

Rotate the outer dial on the lens in or out until you see that the ball is in focus.

Aiming the Camera and Lights

Depending on which side of the camera the mount is attached,

cameras may have to be rotated in order to obtain the correct orientation

If using the Eagle Panel version, tilt the panel down on its mount so that it points back to the hitting position on the mat.

When aiming cameras, switch the options "Show Full Ball Frame" and "Video Stream mode" ON

If using just the camera with separate IR Lights, aim all lights and cameras so that they all point to the hitting position on the mat.

VisTrak Dynamic ROI (Region of Interest)

The Dynamic ROI feature allows the user to place the ball in a 2ft wide area on the hitting surface

As such, aiming the cameras does not have to be exact as the CP software will always align the ball precisely to the center line

Improving Ball detection using camera "Contrast" settings

New camera image and brightness controls that turn low light dull images of the ball and club into vibrant bright images.
