If the main camera was shut off after warm-ups or between periods, the camera has to be turned on at a minimum of 5 minutes before the first/next period.

As Figures 3.1. and 3.2. show, the main camera has to be set to a wide focus and always follow the puck and situations that are of importance (discussions, penalties, altercations/fights, goals, …). Video footage becomes less useful for DOPS and game analytics if the focus is not big enough.
