How much control do I have with multiple Tags linked to one Base?

    Can you build custom rules in automatic mode? Can I group tags and then have a mix of manual and automatic? I am thinking about filming a team sport so I could have tags that are attack and tags that are defense then manually pick the group but let the auto pick the tag in that group?

    That's a great application Andrew! Our developers are currently building advanced and custom features for auto multi-mode. They have let me know that this feasible with the features they are creating in the "Director" portion of the SOLOSHOT app. It may be available at product launch, but if it's not ready by August, then the advanced and custom rules features will be provided in subsequent software updates.

    Just to expand on Andrew's question, I want to video youth hockey for training purposes. There would be three groups of kids. I would give tags 1 & 2 to the first group, 3 & 4 to the second group, and 5 & 6 to the third group. When the first group is on the ice I want to take the average of tags 1 & 2, then when the first group sits and the second group goes out I want the average of tags 3 & 4. Is this something that the Director functionality would handle? Thanks!

    Sounds like fun Tommy! Yes, we are creating a multi-mode tracking option in Director mode that will have SOLOSHOT3 zoom out to keep two or more Tags in the frame. It may be ready in time for shipping this late summer, but if not, will be available as a subsequent firmware update (easy to update via WiFi).

    I have a question regarding soloshot3 and its tag tracking.

    Lets say I have a road that is a couple miles long and that I have three soloshot 3 set up. at various locations along the 2 mile route. I sync my six tags with each of the bases and then I give the tags to six different dowhill riders. The starting point for the downhill riders is at the top of a twisty mountain hill and the Soloshot3's are set up approximately 3/4 of a mile, 1 1/4 mile, and 1 3/4 of a mile from the starting point where the riders with the tags that have been synced to the bases are.

    Obviously the tags are too far from the bases at the starting point but as the Skaters zip down the road and get close to the bases I want the bases then to pick up the tag signal and track the rider as they zip past at 20-35mph.

    Keep in mind that all the tags were synced to each base and camera at the time that each base was placed in it's position. The tags have then traveled back to the top of the mountain out of range of the base and camera.

    Will the base and camera pick up each tag that has already been synced with it as they come back into range and view and begin tracking and filming as the skaters ride by?

    Hi Josh! Thanks for the details of your application. The great thing about SOLOSHOT3 is that the Base will stay in the last position that it received a signal from the Tag, if the Tag exits the 2000 ft tracking range, and automatically re-track the Tag within a second or two once it re-enters the range.

    With multi-mode, you can tell the Base to track (in this case) the closest Tag so that it will swing to whichever Tag is in its closest vicinity. The response time of the Base to the Tags is usually less than a second - whenever another Tag registers as the closest one to the Base.

    I hope this clarifies! Let me know if you have any other questions. :)


    This is sort of related to what many here are asking about... is there a possibility of multiple SoloShots (at least 2) able to track the same tag from different locations / angles? Thanks!
