Telestream, XOS Digital Integrate Technologies to Bring Dynamic Scoreboards to Live Web Broadcasts
Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions and XOS Digital, a provider of sports video technology for collegiate and professional athletic organizations, have integrated the XOS ThunderCloud LiveScore Service with Wirecast Pro live video production and streaming software. The integrated technology allows sports teams and broadcasters to automatically display real-time, detailed scoreboard data. The joint solution will debut and showcase at SVG’s Technology Summit, Dec. 10-11 in New York City.
“Integration between our products saves steps for sports broadcasters by automatically capturing scoreboard feeds directly into Wirecast Pro for display in customized scoreboard templates,” says Barbara DeHart, VP of marketing at Telestream. “Thundercloud dynamic scoreboards are a perfect fit with Wirecast Pro, bringing affordable live sports video production to teams at any level.”
Telestream Wirecast Pro live streaming production software allows users to mix an unlimited number of pre-recorded video clips, titles, and graphics with live video sources. Dynamic scoreboard information, transitions, titles, composite templates, 3D images, virtual sets and chroma key are all available to give live video productions professional polish. Users can set up Wirecast Pro with leading streaming platforms and CDNs – such as YouTube, Ustream, and Twitch – and simultaneously stream to multiple destinations in a choice of resolutions and bandwidths.
“This exciting partnership merges real-time data and graphics with live video for fans to access on web, mobile and tablet platforms,” says Chris McCleary, CEO, XOS Digital. “The ThunderCloud LiveScore Service and Wirecast Pro provide a user experience equal to broadcast-quality production.”
Thundercloud technology supports scoreboard vendors across nearly 20 different sports. Data includes elements such as game clock, countdown clock, down, distance, field position, fouls, penalties, shot clock, inning, runs, hits, outs, strikes and balls, and is updated every one-tenth of a second.
