When are videos ready for purchase?

Videos can be bought at any time, including purchasing video before a trial is held, until the purchasing deadline listed for that particular trial.  Just click on the SHOP NOW tab in the menu bar at the top of this page and add the videos to your Shopping Cart and then Check Out. Alternatively, provide your email address via our Email Notification For NW Trial Video Form, and we will email you with more detailed purchasing instructions a few days after your trial is complete.

Do you film multiple camera angles?

In some situations, yes, but it really depends on the search. The objective is to include only as many camera angles as are needed to fully cover the entire search, including the hides, but not limited to only the hide location(s). And we will capture video from multiple camera angles when it is necessary to accomplish this.

For example, Vehicle searches are filmed using 2 to 4 camera angles (depending on the search) so that we can capture your entire search as you and your dog move around each side of each vehicle, while Container searches are often filmed using only one camera angle.

Check the sample videos for your specific trial, since they will show how many camera angles were filmed for each search, as well as each camera position. 

Do I pay more for searches that have multiple camera angles?

No. The price is the same whether 1 camera angle or 3 camera angles were filmed for a particular search for example. Because when you buy video of a search, you're paying for coverage of the entire search, regardless of the number of camera angles that were necessary to fully capture that particular search area.

So, for searches where multiple camera angles are filmed, the videos from each camera angle are sold as a package for that particular search, for one all-inclusive price, and will not be sold separately  (meaning, if your dog's entire search was fully captured by one camera angle, for example, you can't obtain a discount/refund for the other camera angles where your dog doesn't appear, since the objective of capturing your dog's search has already been met). 


What is the quality and format of the trial video?

All nose work videos, for all camera angles, are filmed in Full High Definition resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and the files are provided in .mp4 format. These videos can be played on any standard Windows or Mac computer (either desktop or laptop) as well as some Android phones.

If you would like your videos formatted for playback on an iPad, please make a special request for that using the "Comments/Special Delivery Instructions" comment box you'll find in the last step of the Checkout process, since those videos will require special formatting. Keep in mind this special formatting will provide videos that are not FHD (Full High Definition), so you would not be able to blow them up to a very large size on a large computer or large TV.

If you'd like your videos to be formatted BOTH for Full High Definition AND for viewing on an iPad, there will be an extra charge to send both copies (two differently formatted versions of each video). Please use the Contact form to let us know that you'd like this option.

Do you utilize dynamic filming techniques (camera panning and zooming)?

Yes, for several of the searches in a trial, we will use a zoom lens and zoom in on the dog/handler team, filling the frame of the video so that it's possible to see the nuances of both the dog's and handler's body language when they're searching. For those videos, we will also pan around the search area to ensure the competitors always stay within the frame. All additional camera angles will be filmed using a wide-angle lens with no zoom. Review the sample videos to see which searches are filmed dynamically (using zooming and panning) and from which angles.

Do you film every search in a trial?

In many cases, we will now be able to film every search in a trial.  This is due to a recent NACSW rule change starting mid June 2018, where NACSW now permits all Interior Elements to be filmed at all trial levels. However, there will be situations where there are exceptions to this general rule. This is because NACSW rules require the Certifying Official (CO) to approve the placement of every camera, for every search; and occasionally the CO prohibits a particular search from being filmed either due to space constraints or for some other reason. Occasionally the CO also requires a camera to be moved or restricts the camera placement to one exact spot. Hence, be certain to check the sample videos to see which specific searches were filmed for your trial, and to also evaluate camera angles to see which hide locations can be seen directly, before you place your order for your trial videos.
