Alignment Concept & Objective

It is important to understand that the camera sensor needs to be aligned exactly with the projection of the finish line vertical plane. This cannot be achieved if the mounting gear head is not centered in the exact projection (extension) of the finish line.

Only when the camera is perfectly leveled (in the swivel axis), and the alignment references along the finish line can be seen in alignment mode, will you know for sure that the camera is appropriately positioned.

TIP: Before timing an event, it is recommended to make the line clearly visible with reference marks positioned along the line, and to secure the finish area as to avoid people from blocking the view between the camera and the finish line.

The key to the process is to follow all the steps and to practice until you fully understand the procedure.
