Title: Camera Track Added
Post by: DTHolder on December 07, 2017, 01:27:57 PM
First I would like to say I truly appreciate The Tournament Director software. I have used this for a number of years and appreciate all of the work that has gone into its development.  We use TD for our charity poker fund raising event and everyone seems to like it. 

During our events the final table is used for the final 9 players and we have recorded an overhead time laps for the last few years. This progressed into adding 4 "hole cameras" that used a PC and a USB video recording adapter. I know, why would you want to record your friends, why would anyone allow you to review their play, you know you are not ESPN.... To this I say we are a charity and the video is used to promote the next event.  ;)

Well long story short we decided to add a full set of hole cameras to the table. We took quite a few photos and have documented the build at http://www.JoshFarler.org/cameratrack.html (http://www.JoshFarler.org/cameratrack.html). (sub page menu on right side of article)

Hopefully this build will give you the reader some insights to adding cameras to your table.

Just a quick update:
We held our annual charity event and the final table system was a hit.
Check out http://www.joshfarler.org/2018holecams.html (http://www.joshfarler.org/2018holecams.html) to see the system outputs.

Cheers all.
