Whether you are a high school athletic department, college sports team or local sports organization, this single-camera live streaming system allows you to create top-notch live sports broadcasts. In pairing the GOHD20U high definition PTZ USB camera with Wirecast streaming software, this system can be easily set up to stream baseball games, swim meets, soccer games, and so on.
The GOHD20U camera offers 1080p high definition video and up to 60fps output frame rate, ideal for broadcasting sporting events. Video is carried from the camera to the computer for streaming via a USB cable. Connection to the computer only requires an available USB port making video capture simple (no additional capture cards or devices are required). The USB connectivity also allows this camera to be used with a laptop making this a portable system. Unlike a handheld camcorder which has to be manned, the GOHD20U pan-tilt-zoom functions can be controlled remotely with the RCC4000 joystick controller. This means the entire system can be operated by one person, if necessary. Please note, the camera is hard-wired to the controller (this is not a wireless system).
For a fraction of the cost of traditional broadcast hardware, Wirecast video streaming software allows you to quickly and easily broadcast live sporting events. Enhance camera shots with graphics, computer graphics and text, video effects, high-quality audio and other broadcast quality production elements. Use integrated scoreboards and instant replay for high quality live streams.
Use Wirecast Pro's built in scoreboard generator, or create your own using NewBlue’s Titler Live Advance ($445) or Titler Live Ultimate ($945) — available for Wirecast Studio or Pro. Bring in real-time data directly from your stadium scoreboard using Sportzcast’s technology, for hands-free scoring!
Wirecast Pro also offers Instant Replay. Sports fans who need instant replay to catch game highlights or play action can use the built-in replay system to easily grab and edit clips and replay them at any speed.
With the Wirecast Cam app, you can turn any iPhone (4S or newer) or iPad into a wireless camera and capture into Wirecast as a source. Note, Wirecast running on the PC has to be on the same wireless network as the Cam app. It’s an inexpensive way to have a camera go where wired connections would be problematic. Switch from front to back camera to go from subject to self for sideline reporting.
Live streaming broadcasts of sporting events can also serve as a source of revenue for organizations (high schools, colleges/universities, sports clubs) using the system. Advertising can be integrated into the broadcast using Wirecast. Use the Image Playlist feature to add an image carousel to any layer, shot or playlist in Wirecast. Then select as many images as you want of any size (GIFs, JPEGs, PNGs, TIFFs, etc.). Wirecast will automatically generate a looping slideshow with a dynamic morphing transition from image to image.
NOTE: The system does NOT included the required computer or streaming service. These must be sourced separately. If this system is not just right for you, CONTACT US with your specifications and requirements and we will assemble a custom video system for you.
