Common Adjustments

Resolution

The UHWK Show is capable of shooting in either 1080p at 30fps or 720p at 60fps. To change the resolution of your UHWK device, update the VideoSwitch configuration option.

  • For 1080p @ 30fps, set VideoSwitch to 0
  • For 720p @ 60fps, set VideoSwitch to 1


EV

By default the Exposure Value (EV) is set to 6. This is ideal for most indoor sports settings. EV is measured on a scale from 0-12, with 0 being darkest and 12 being brightest. If you find your footage is too dark, try increasing this value. Likewise, if your footage is too bright, try decreasing this value.

 

Buzzer

Buzzer is the audio chime heard when turning your UHWK on and off. The buzzer is on by default but you can turn it off by setting this value to 0.

 

Audio

This setting enables or disables audio recording. To disable, set this value to 0.

 

RTCDisplay

To display the date and time on your footage, set this value to 1.

 

LIGHTFREQ

UHWK can record in either NTSC (60hz) or PAL (50hz) mode. Default is NTSC. If you need to switch to PAL, set this value to 0.
