Sometimes, installing a cricket video simulator can be complicated based on your skills and expertise. Some simulators are easy to manage, while some are complex to set up and transport. If you plan to set up a cricket simulator, get one that is highly portable and easy to install. But before setting up this device, you must consider a few things. Here we go:

1. Reason for Using

First, you should decide the reason for using a cricket simulator. You can use this machine for different purposes, such as training and entertainment. At ProBatter, we have our latest PX3 simulators. It is ideal for moving from one place to another. You can use it for training and entertainment. Its pitch head can reach a speed between 40 and 100mph. It is ideal for training cricketers.

2. Quality of Projection

Generally, academics, national teams, and counties have been using bowling machines for training cricketers where these machines have also been in use for entertainment purposes. Nonetheless, using simulators, you will get a different experience of bowling running down for bowling at you. Thereby, the projection quality decides the experience quality.

Crucial aspects impact the projection quality, including the screen, the projector’s position, its material, and the screen’s blackout. We suggest setting up your projector onto the top for the best projection quality.

3. Place of Installation

The best thing about the ProBatter PX3 cricket simulator is that you can install it both indoor and outdoor. Indoor installation would have distinct needs compared to outdoor installation. Moreover, the type of installation also differs depending on the simulator’s usage. Every simulator’s uses are different. For instance, for indoor facilities, the simulator may need cricket netting.

However, there will be enough additions to the structure in terms of outdoor installation. It helps make the simulator windproof. Also, you can install a roof onto the outdoor simulator.

4. Pitch Length

The pitch length is a crucial aspect to check for several reasons. A standard pitch is almost 20 metres long. However, it becomes tough to find a 20m long pitch, particularly indoors. You require adequate length to install the simulator to various swing settings, lines, and speeds to meet your requirements.

Furthermore, it is crucial to make adjustments in the device for the pitch, swing, pace, and ball spin. The pitch length is essential for training and entertainment as it decides the experience quality.

5. Types of Surface

The type of playing surface is another crucial point to consider. There are different types of surfaces used for entertainment ranging from mats to grass, while for training purposes, you should have surfaces similar to the real-life mats or pitches.

Sometimes, while installing outdoor cricket simulators, people use the grass surface. It would help if you remembered that the surface decides the bounce and spin of the ball. Therefore, we recommend trimming the grass surface as much as possible.

So, these are five crucial things you should consider while installing a cricket video simulator. Contact ProBatter to learn more about the simulators!
