Telestream, the leading provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions and XOS Digital, Inc., the industry leader of sports video technology for collegiate and professional athletic organizations, jointly announced the integration of XOS ThunderCloud LiveScore Service with Wirecast Pro for Windows 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 Sports Video Group’s League Technology Summit which takes place 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,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. “Thundercloud dynamic scoreboards are a perfect fit with Wirecast Pro for Windows, 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 easily 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,” said 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.
