Download VC redistributables hereHere
After the Control Panel (CP) installation, you should see a desktop icon on your PC
Click to launch the CP
The CP main window
Depending on what system you have, you should see either 1 or 2 cameras are running
Auto camera FPS speed checks
When starting the CP with the cameras connected, a speed check will be performed.
An error message will be displayed if the speed is below the 700 fps minimum.
If checked camera speeds are below the minimum, then this is usually due to either the cameras not being connected to USB3 ports on the front of the PC
or USB 2 extension cables are being used.
Switching camera frame rate from 800 fps to 1500 fps
You can now switch the camera frame from 800 fps to 1500 fps in each camera for a combined frame rate of over 3000 fps !
Benefits: You'll see double the number of frames of the ball in flight in the shot video playback and ball spin can be measured.
The CP setup window
Click the "Setup" button from the CP's main panel and select the system you are using.
Usually either SCXi, Eagle, LX2 or EVi.
Running the cameras
The CP Camera window
Click the "Cameras" button from the CP's main panel
Right Click on the "Defaults" button to set all settings to their default values
Switch the "Video Stream Mode" ON to start grabbing fames continuously.
If you only see black or very dark images, right click on the "Shutter Speed" button to set the camera to full exposure.
Note that full exposure mode (i.e. 5000 ms shutter speed) is only used to help orientate the cameras if images appear dark.
Regular shutter speed is 300 ms with lighting pointing directly at the ball.
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

You can use the HuaTeng Vision application to check that the SSi cameras on your PC are running at the correct speed
Select "Continuous" in the Triiger panel to start grabing frames
