Registering your camera allows you to use any digital video camera with ScoreBreak. Any video you record with your camera will be instantly broken down by statistics and live-cuts you create during your games or practices.

For best results, your camera should be re-registered monthly while you are in season. This article will walk you through the process of registering your camera on ScoreBreak's applications.

You will need your camera for this process and the device you use to operate ScoreBreak. You will also need the ability to import the recorded video files to your device. 

If you are using an iPhone or iPad for this process, you will need a SD Card Reader in order to import your video files. If you are using an iPad Pro (2018 or later) with a USB-C port, you can use any USB-C to SD Card Reader adapter. Here are two recommended options:


Via ScoreBreak's web application:

Open the ScoreBreak menu via the button in the top left corner of your web interface, then select Team Settings . Inside the team settings area, you will find the Registered Cameras tab. Select the Add New  button to begin the camera registration process. 

By default, your camera is given a name containing today's date, found in the upper right hand corner. You can optionally choose to rename this camera to something more descriptive, helpful if you are using multiple cameras. Power your camera on, insert a SD Card if applicable, and set your camera to record video. ScoreBreak can use either MP4 or AVCHD video files. For the camera registration process, you will be recording your computers screen; set your camera up to record your computer screen, then press the Start  button and begin recording. Record the QR codes displayed on your screen, making sure not to cut off the corners of the QR codes.

After the QR codes have been displayed, stop the recording on your camera. Take your SD Card out of your camera, and import the video you just recorded to your computer. Drag and drop this video file or select the video file from your computer.

If you are using a Mac computer and record your video in AVCHD, you will need to go to your SD Card location and right-click (or Control-Click) the AVCHD file, then choose to Show package contents - you will then need to do this again on the folder called BDSM. Finally, you will find your .mts files under the Stream  folder.

After uploading, you will see a success or failure notification!

Via ScoreBreak's iOS (iPhone & iPad) application:

Please note: While ScoreBreak can use either MP4 or AVCHD video files, iOS devices cannot read AVCHD files. If your camera can not record to MP4, please stop and use another platform. If you are going to use your iPad or iPhone for camera registration and video upload, please ensure your camera is set up to record in MP4 or MOV video file formats. Please consult your camera’s manual for specifics on supported video file types and adjusting your recording format.

With your camera set to record in MP4, open the ScoreBreak application and select the ScoreBreak Settings button via the top left corner ScoreBreak-logo button. Select Registered Cameras then select the + button located in the top right corner to begin the camera registration process. 

Give your camera a descriptive name, such as Denver Canon G21 . This is helpful if you are using multiple cameras. Power your camera on, insert a SD Card if applicable, and set your camera to record video. As noted earlier, your camera will need to be set to record in MP4.

To register your camera, you will be recording your computers screen. When you are ready to do so, press the Start  button and begin recording video. Record the QR codes displayed on your screen, making sure not to cut off the corners of the QR codes.

After the QR codes have been displayed, stop the recording on your camera. Take your SD Card out of your camera, and import the video you just recorded to your computer via a SD Card adapter.

Import the video file from your Photos into ScoreBreak to complete the registration of your camera!
