Part of my job as a Technical Lead on our Coach Relations team is outfitting our crew with the technology they need to serve you. Between purchasing dozens of computers for new hires and assembling a few of my own, I have quite a bit of experience finding the best machines for Hudl. I’ll briefly explain the specs you’re looking for below, but feel free to skip down to the recommendations at the bottom if that’s all you’re looking for.
When searching for a computer to use with Hudl, your top priority is the processor. Intel’s Core series gives you a number of options that serve a range of needs. From Core i3, to Core i5, and finally Core i7, you’ll get progressively better performance with each jump.
Jason West joined Hudl coach support in June 2012 and it didn’t take long for people to like him. Really, the main reason he’s this week’s Hudlie is because he’s zero percent diva and assured us he can be himself even in the spotlight.
He’s the resident pro on all things baseball, so if you sign up for one of those training sessions, you’re guaranteed to learn a thing or two.
When it comes to Jason, just know his excited voice is eerily similar to his calm voice. Not to say that’s a bad thing; just a heads-up to read this entire thing in monotone for the full effect.
If you have a Hudl account, there’s a very good chance you have a highlight reel. If you don’t, just know that it’s never been easier to tag your best plays and create a Premium Highlight perfect for sharing.
Come on, you’re pretty awesome. Why not showcase those skills and spread the love all over social media? While you’re at it, you should order hard copies, too.
Coach Support Specialist Tom Grant joined the Hudl team in January 2013 and has been crushing it in his first few months. He hit the ground running and we haven’t really been able to contain him since he was released from New Hire Training.
Whether he’s handling remote sessions or fielding calls, the dude makes a mission of helping coaches win.
When he’s not busy at the office, he’s watching or listening to any game in progress. He has a favorite team for almost every sport and plenty of favorite athletes whom he’d love to talk about whenever you get a minute. Until then, he’ll fill you in on life and stuff.
Toby Schroder is a product designer with a year or ten of experience. At one point, he ran his own design firm just across the street from where he’s working now. You know, in the Haymarket. In Lincoln. Across from 8th and P Streets.
Anyway, he gets things done and we love him for it, but when he’s not busy making Hudl look awesome, he’s spending time with his wife and kids. You should ask to see pictures of his kids. Really. Most of the time people just shove them in your face and you’re all like, “Seriously, your child looks like every other one I’ve seen.” But the Schroders know how to do Halloween. That’s all I’ll say.
Even though March traditionally corresponds with madness in the world of sports, it was pretty calm for our Support team. In fact, in terms of calls, it was our slowest month in almost two years! It was also the first month we’ve had more emails than phone calls since… well… ever.
We appreciate all of you spreading the love in so many different ways. Here are the stats for you.
Windows 8 joins the ranks of iOS and Android in the “devices with a Hudl app” club. We’re excited to announce that after countless hours of hard work by seven University of Nebraska students, the Windows 8 app is officially available for download.
Install the free Hudl app on your Windows 8 tablet or computer and you can watch your Hudl video anytime, anywhere.
Hudl for Windows 8 has the same features as our Android app:
