Update: New Video Features

Last summer we added to video recording, review and sharing to Takedown Scoring and Stats.

During this past high school season (2018-2019), about 40% of Takedown users recorded video in the app and produced more than 17,000 match videos. Of these recordings, roughly 13,000 were uploaded to the cloud (team YouTube accounts). Of the videos uploaded to YouTube, roughly 20% were also posted to Takedown LIVE so that fans can view the scoring transcript and video in a single app. Takedown Scoring and Stats, by virtue of a robust and committed user community, is most likely the leading publisher of scholastic wrestling videos on the Internet.

Top five states for recording video:

  1. Ohio

  2. Pennsylvania

  3. Georgia

  4. Virginia

  5. Tennessee

And the top ten programs:

  1. Tuscaloosa

  2. Glacier

  3. Flathead

  4. Paulding County

  5. Seneca Valley

  6. Collierville

  7. West Branch

  8. Quincy

  9. Riverside

  10. John Overton

Takedown users typically record in high resolution with 82% of all videos recorded in 720P or 1080P.

Video is an important feature for Takedown users and we continue our investment in this area.

Table Top Stand for iPad -- Quick Review

AboveTek — Universal Tablet Stand

Last week I scored a college dual and recorded video using Takedown. I was matside and needed a stand to keep the iPad vertical and free up my hands for scoring. I choose a low-end tripod and didn’t like the experience because (1) a tripod doesn’t work when seated at the scorer’s table and (2) tapping the Takedown scoring interface caused the iPad to shake a bit which can show up in the video. What I needed was a stable, inexpensive iPad stand that was short enough to be useful when seated at the scorer’s table.

After searching a bit, I settled on the Universal Tablet Stand by AboveTek, I did some testing and then gave it to a local high school team to see how it performed during a live dual meet. The user’s experience was good.

If we were in the ratings business, I’d give it 4+ stars out of 5.

I liked:

  • Availability

  • Price

  • Stability

  • Construction quality

  • Ease-of-assembly

  • Flexibility — rotates in all dimensions

  • Accessories — comes with two frames, slight different sizes

  • Size (relative to tripod)

I didn’t like:

  • Doesn’t break down flat without a screw driver

  • Connection between stand and tablet frame has too much play for my taste

Worth a look as a tripod alternative for your dual meets.

We sourced ours at Amazon for $39.00 delivered same day.

Disclosure: we have no relationship with Amazon or AboveTek.
