Jason Maass, who worked to set up the live action game system for the Lehman campus, stands in front of a recent live action volleyball game.

When parents want to see their child’s game but can’t come, they can now go to a link for Lehman campus sports and watch it from there, thanks to Jason Maass, the campus athletic director who came up with the idea.  “We are the first school in the Bronx to have live action games in the gym for all games,” said Mr. Maass with a proud smile on his face. The name of this new camera system is called “HUDL“The camera system, which costs several thousand dollars each year, can be accessed at

Because the camera system records games, it can also help high school athletes get college scholarships because college coaches can watch them compete from afar. Any athlete can use this system to help with the college process, Mr. Maass said. Right now the system is set up to record boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball, boys and girls soccer and  football. The camera records both junior varsity and varsity games. Eventually, it will also be used for boys and girls lacrosse.

How this system works

For indoor games such as basketball and volleyball, the camera is placed in the gym. The  camera moves automatically, which means nobody has to move it. For outdoor games, the camera works by battery and it has two lenses that can record games from far distances and a pole to hold the camera is 25 feet in the air. People can also record games with an iPad , which is then transferred onto the system. The system can even be used for far-away games but it has a more complicated process due to the way that it has to be set up and a person has to bring materials to set up the cameras.
