We are attempting to set up a stream for an event in a school gym. Because the WiFi is abysmally horrible, webcam streaming is out of the question. Obviously not allowed to touch wired network, goes without saying. The school uses a LocalLive service for streaming sports events. They have a large camera that they can pan and zoom and a smaller one that always points to a score board. They use a picture in picture approach where the scoreboard is always in a corner. So if we are allowed to use the service (not sure if the school fully understands this is a whole day event, this might be cost prohibitive, but one can only hope…) then perhaps we can point the small camera to an audience display to show match events and scores.
I can’t figure out how to have the Audience display automatically show in-match info, then when match ended switch to the score of the last match scored. It seems that once a match starts it switches from wherever it was to in-match (which is awesome and crucial so grateful for that feature, prevents forgetting to switch) but then when the match is over it just stays there.
Also, the only way I know to advance the info on the Saved Match Results screen is to go into the main TM interface into the scoring tab, right-click last scored match and select “Send to Default Saved Match Results”. It does not automatically increment when a match score is saved.
That’s an awful amount of clicking and razor sharp focus required from the volunteer(s) running TM especially on a fast pace 3 field set. Now I finally understand why at most events the scores displayed on the Audience Display are way out of touch and randomly displayed at weird times lol. As a spectator I always wished the score to be displayed immediately after the refs finished (assuming one head ref who moves from field to field) and before next match started. But now I understand it is not as easy as it sounds.
By the way, so far loving how robust the entire TM system is. It’s just that the event operator interface is a bit clunky and not very friendly.
Is there any other workflow, best practice, tricks I’m missing or this really is the only way to have an up to the minute in match plus score display (always make sure you right clicked a scored match and sent it to the Default Save Match Results then switch the view to Saved Match Results) ?
