Some gardeners use two strands at each level.  One strand on one side of the tomato plant and one strand on the opposite side.

thank you YOLOS for posting and CAMPRN for creating video. What a great time saver, I do as many as 50 plants each year and so keeping them all supported is a huge job.
I would think though that one would still have to prune the suckers for the most part?

Looks like Camprn did remove the suckers.  Other videos I have seen say you do not have to remove the suckers, it is optional.

Aaaaaaah, so THAT's what Florida weave is. That looks really easy, and looks like it would stand up to high winds.

Some people say it makes no difference. My experience has been, it depends on the type of plant. My rule of thumb is, indeterminates - yes, determinates - no. Although I've had some indeterminates that start to branch their main stems if you sucker them - they resist being trained to grow a single main stem. So I leave those alone, too.

I have had that, too!  And if you try to choose one "main" stem, it just doesn't ever actually work....thought I just had mutant tomaters!

I really like this idea...will be anxious to see how it does, Kate.

So each plant is basically getting a 1'x 2' area, with the roots running from the center of the bed. I like that she can manipulate that the fruits hang to the outside. Pretty slick.
