How to set up the Capto putting sensor tutorial


Video Transcript

Hey guys we wanted to do a quick tutorial video showing you the basics of how to get your Capto Putting System device setup from downloading the software & everything leading up to capturing that first putt. So the first thing we need to do - we obviously have the device in front of us so we need to open it, and you'll notice there's really four components inside the box. The first one we have the USB flash drive. This is going to be what the software is on. If you're downloading it onto either a Windows or a Mac device. So you're going to need that if you're downloading it under a computer. If you're gonna use an iPad and Iow device or an Android device make sure you go to the App Store to download the software. The next thing we obviously have the actual captive sensor itself. We'll get into that a little bit later we also have the charging cord that you'll need. We're going to use that obviously to get the capital ready and charged and then we also have the quick start guide and on the back end of this we have the capital device code as well as the software license code. You'll need that once you have the software downloaded so that we can get it registered and we can get it running. So let's go ahead and dive into how we download the software. Let's go ahead and get the software downloaded.

If you're going to use a computer like I said you're going to need to use the USP device to download that software. If you're using a iPad or an OS device or even an android go to the App Store to download the software.


So I'm using a Mac so I'm going to plug this in and in the top corner of the screen we can just we can now see a folder called captive somewhere in double click on that and gives me three options across the screen Android Mac or Windows. This is a Mac device on a click on the Mac folder and then you have two options here. We have the capital with the actual capital logo and then you have the zip drive.


All you need to do is click on that logo and you can actually drag that onto your desktop and it's going to transfer that file cool.


[00:01:58] So we now have it there.


[00:01:59] I can now actually inject the USP unplug that and now I can double click on the icon to get the software running.


[00:02:11] So while it's doing that let's go ahead and charge our capital.


[00:02:15] OK. So get your device charging you're going to need to take out the charging cord as well as the capital device. So I'm going to take the cord and you can plug it into any sort of USP.


[00:02:27] This is just an iPhone charger so plug that in. And then I'm going to actually take the top of the Capitol device. This little plug just pops straight off. I'm going to take the cord and I'm going to plug that in so once that's plugged in plugged into the wall and you'll see a red light. That means it's charging when the light turns green.


[00:02:51] You'll know you're good to go.


[00:02:53] OK so now the software is on my desktop. So let's go ahead and open it up by double clicking on it and it's going to take us to this home screen where you're going to need that quick start guide.


[00:03:03] That's in the capital case because on the back of this you're gonna have to enter in that software license code.


[00:03:10] So that code in it walks you through it we can see this little screen that pops up on the left. So you need to enter in that first five numbers there.


[00:03:20] So let's go ahead and do that and then creating and creating an account is easy.


[00:03:32] You just hit create an account put in your email create a password and then you'll receive an email to verify your account and then you're good to go.


[00:03:39] I already have an account so I'm just gonna go ahead and log in so now I'm logged in.


[00:03:49] So as you can see the captain is trying to connect the software is trying to connect to the actual capture device because we have a charging and it's not turned on. It's not going to actually connect. So this screen is going to pop up. So we're gonna get this screen that's gonna walk us through how we connected to the Internet signal that the captive device puts off.


[00:04:07] So let's go ahead grab the cap though let's get it turned on connected to the app so we can actually go ahead and capture so our capture device has been charging so to turn it on there's a little button down here.


[00:04:20] All I'm going to do is I'm going to push that and we'll see the light on the top turn green. That means it's on and now putting out a wireless signal. So to connect to that you're gonna have to go to your wireless you're going to have to connect to the Wi-Fi and it's going to open up a signal called cap. So we're going to look for that. There it is so there's capsule. So my click on the capital and now my computer is gonna connect to that. So I can close this tutorial and I'm gonna go ahead and click where it says not connected. Click on that.


[00:05:00] And then I can hit connect and now it's going to try to connect. We get the beep.


[00:05:07] That means we're connected. You get the second one to confirm it. So now we are connected. So we can see that that not connected sign on the right of the screen has now gone away. We can also see how charged our capital is. So it's a ninety nine percent. And we can also see at what frame per second the captain's capturing. So ours is set to three hundred frames per second. We do know that it can go to four hundred frames per second. So next thing we need to do to actually capture a stroke is we have to select a player. So I'm going to select a player and because this is a new software I don't have anybody in it. So let's go ahead and put myself in there somewhere I put in my first and last name as well as my e-mail. You don't have to put an email but the only information that you have to fill out like it says is the yellow field so you have to at least put in a first name. I'm gonna go ahead and put in most of my information here so we're good there and then I'm going to click the saved button. So now we can see the player is saved so now it's time to move on to putter data. So I'm a click on putter data. And again there are no putters in this yet. So we're gonna have to create one. So we're going to click the Add button which is going to create this blank page for us. We're going to put in the putter name. So this is going to be Eric Payne putter and then you going to fill out the brand.


[00:06:30] So this is a ping in the model of this putter is a ZB 2 sigma. So this is one of Ping's new putters. So I'm gonna enter in that information.


[00:06:43] So this is the segment to ZB too.


[00:06:50] And then I'm also gonna need to get the length I need to know the loft the lie as well as if there is any offset in the distance that the sensor is from the bottom of the club. So let's go ahead and show you that and then we'll come back to this screen and show you what you need to put in before you capture the putt so the first thing we need to know we need to know the length of the putter in inches.


[00:07:14] So I'm going to rest the putter on the ground as it would naturally sits on a neutral position and we measure it to the top of the grip. So this putter is thirty four inches long.


[00:07:23] So I'm going to come back to my computer and I would type in thirty four inches. It's already set to that. So that's fine. I know the loft of this putter is three degrees. So we've put the three.


[00:07:33] The lie is 70. And then the offset is simply the Hauser position. How much it is kind of in front of the head. So this is about a three quarter offset some select that option.


[00:07:47] So it's a three quarter offset.


[00:07:49] And then we need to move a sensor distance nuclear to do it in centimeters or inches. I'm going to go ahead and do it in inches. So we need to go ahead and get the actual sensor put on to the shaft.


[00:08:01] So I'm going to unscrew these and then the light is always gonna be on the top and I'm gonna go ahead and secure this around the shaft some screw these back on and tighten it.


[00:08:19] I would do my best to make it straight will make it perfect in a second. But for now we just need to get it on. And then again we need to know the height that that sensor is from the ground somewhere. Put the putter back in neutral position and your measure to the bottom of it.


[00:08:37] So this one is at 19 and a half inches so I'm gonna go ahead and set this to nineteen point five inches and then it is also a blade putters on a select blade and then within their database they calculate the moment of inertia as well as the weight of the putter. So once I have that information then it's time to calibrate. First you have to save the putter somewhere save it. And now we can see that the calibrate Button has turned blue so that means we can go ahead and calibrate.


[00:09:09] So we have the sensor connected to the shaft. Now it's time to calibrate. So this part gets a little bit more detailed because we want to make sure this putter head is perfectly 90 degrees to the sensors. You're going to weigh the putter flat on a flat surface or as flat on the surface as you can find and you need to take something so you can make sure the faces at 90 degrees.


[00:09:29] I've taken a ruler so I'm going to hold the ruler down on the table and I'm going to check that the face lines up perfectly with that straight edge.


[00:09:37] So it does so we know we're good snogging a back to the software I can hit that calibrate button and it's gonna go ahead and do a countdown or it's going to level this out.


[00:09:48] And then I have to do the second part of the calibration which is where you're going to hold it with two fingers you're just going to kind of let it hang again.


[00:09:58] Get another countdown.


[00:10:02] It's now the putter has been calibrated hit the save button again so it is now save that calibration.


[00:10:08] And now you're ready to hit your putt. So go ahead and click on the putt button. So now we're ready to hit a putt so let's go ahead and talk about some of the things that you might need to know so you can capture some of your putting strokes.


[00:10:23] So when we look at the screen we'll notice that red circle on the outside. That means that the putter is currently moving around. So it's not going to capture a putt until the putter is recognizing that the putter is at an address position.


[00:10:37] So if I go ahead and set up to the golf ball we're going to see that it says active and that the screen turns green. We're also going to get that auditory of that beep telling us that we're good to go ahead and hit a putt. So we had our putt we get a beat that tells us that the pope has been captured. So I can do that again. So I'll set up.


[00:11:01] Get the beep and then I can hit up.


[00:11:09] So that's the process of downloading the software onto your computer or downloading it onto your app on your phone or your iPod as well as getting yourself calibrated and ready to hit a putt. It's simple to use once you have everything is setup. Enjoy all the data that this has to give you. It gives so much information that's vital for whether you're a player or a coach. This is going to help you improve.
