LiveView Pro 2 Tutorial Overview
Making effective swing changes is difficult, especially in light of the fact that what you think you are doing is often different from what is actually happening. Introduction of a new aircraft swingthe position of the hands or the orientation of the face with the club may seem completely different, but often it is only a slight difference from what you have done wrong before.
Mirrors can help, but they are tricky to set up and position. Recording your shot on your phone is the way many golfers go, but you can’t view your new shot in real time and it can be difficult to identify. Level up Live View Pro 2, tutorial that bridges feeling and reality, effectively streaming live video of your swing to your smart device. This is an important advantage because you can watch your movement while in golfing stance, which golfers often lose when looking in the mirror.
This swivel mirror device connects to your phone or iPad using Wi-Fi. Place it where you want to watch your swing from – one of the most popular positions is down the line, at about hip height – and you can use the flexible tripod to either place it on a bag stand on the training field or attach it to the top of your golf bag. You then place your phone right in front of where you’re hitting from – I suggest placing your phone on top of a couple of golf balls so it’s at the right angle and clearly visible during the swing.
Updates from previous Live View Pro The device has a new shape – lighter in weight (less than 4 ounces), more streamlined and phone-like in design. This makes it very portable and the look is definitely more premium. It also records video in HD 720p, so it’s supposedly less grainy, 120fps, and audio recording. Live View Pro also supports PURLNK-accelerated video streaming for smoother playback and fewer frame drops when watching swing.
I first tried it on my iPad and it was still quite blurry and not overly sharp. Thinking it was because the screen was so much larger, I switched to my iPhone, but the problem persisted, although this may have been due in part to the foggy, dim conditions I was testing in. The quality is good enough to see your body and stick position, but not to see with any certainty the angle of your baton’s face. Playback wasn’t choppy and they came on quickly after the swing was complete, but I’m used to watching videos that are much clearer.
What makes Live View Pro 2 stand out is how it uses the audio recording feature to capture the sound of the impact and record two seconds before and after. This means that you won’t be left with unnecessarily long video clips that take up a lot of memory space on your phone – the clips are much shorter in length. It uses artificial intelligence to automatically “see” your shot and record it, even when you’re not hitting the ball. It can give you formulaic suggestions for things like shaft plane and head position, and it recognizes the different phases of your swing to break up and review parts quickly and easily. You can even draw lines and circles on recorded movements and then watch them live to make sure you reach certain positions.
There is no doubt that this is an improvement on Live View Pro in terms of quality and convenience. For golfers who like to fiddle with their swing or want to watch their progress in real time, this is a great tool. Coaches will also no doubt use it to show skeptical students what they are really doing. The app is fun to use and easy to navigate, but the video quality remains a bit disappointing. We’re used to seeing crystal clear video on our phone these days, and Live View Pro 2 still lags far behind that, which will deter some from the $649 investment.
