SURVEY

GETTING SET UP

  • Before installing 6th Tool hardware, SMT surveys the venue of interest.

  • We start by estimating which camera locations will yield the best field coverage.

  • Next, we visit the venue to further define the install plan, getting approval from facilities management for the locations of cameras, cable runs, and the computer workstation area.

INSTALLATION

TH

  • Installation usually takes five to seven (5-7) days

  • SMT Operations can perform the entire installation itself, or guide venue-required contractors on specific steps, like where to run cable or mount camera arms

  • 6th Tool computers can slide into venue server racks, or SMT can provide a stand-alone rack

  • Four (4) cameras are installed at the venue’s tallest and most stable locations, typically the roof or support columns
