Game Video Display Including Score
The heart of any system is the video display. A click of an icon scales the video larger “Wide Mode” or in “Theatre Mode” occupy the entire browser without site controls to distract from the action.
In video score display shows team logos, score and time. A touch of a button reveals 2 lines of visual play by play.
Below the video (normal and wide mode) you will see 5 lines of visual play by play. Full team stats and full play by play in printer friendly form are also available with the click of a button.
Score and stats are received from the stat application you already use.
Our system uses H.264 adaptive video transmitted via the any RTMP encoder. Most schools operate inexpensive hardware encoders which provide superior quality, are simple to use and require no computer.
Quality of production is important when marketing broadcasts to alumni and sponsors. It is our policy to coordinate with the participating institutions’s internship programs in order to enhance the quality and enjoyment of each event to the viewer. This provides the interns with valuable experience and in some cases academic credit.
