Live sport coverage
on Nov 4, 2008 at 12:14:49 pm

First hello to everybody

We are interested for graphic solution for live sports coverage in our OB van (usually football, basketball, etc...) and also to have possibility to cover with computer graphic some other live events.

Can anybody recommend something, or just to buy VIZRT or ORAD. If this two last are options can anybody give some pros/cons for them.

Thank you in advance

The best character generators for live events are often the most expensive. The leaders in the industry are Chyron and VizRT. You may visit the Chyron forum here on the COW.

On the less expensive (but with less features) list, I would include Compix.

How is the rest of your van outfitted? I freelance with a guy who has 5 ancient but workable 1/2" cameras with studio kits, a 16-channel audio board and a used single-channel Compix. He produced a 10-week package of local high school football games for the CBS affiliate here. Not network quality, but with a budget that made it worthwhile for the station, the producer, and the local crew.

Hope this helps...

Jay Curtis
