I just rewrote and updated the instructions on how to setup video overlay at a Vex event. If you haven’t tried it, I recommend it since it makes the event seem much more professional and it really isn’t that hard. Please let me know if you have any problems.
I also recommend web publishing with Twitter. It is really easy, and it just works. We tested it out at the NW MD Vex Robotics Competition and every match result got posted without problems. Vex Video Overlay Instructions.pdf (57.2 KB)
Very nice job with the guide. Seems like more and more people are attempting to do this these days, so it’s good to have a nice set of instructions to point them to.
Since a lot more people have been asking about this in the past couple months I’ve been looking at it to see if it’s possible to incorporate this functionality directly into the TM itself so that DScaler isn’t required. It would simplify the setup a lot, but there’s some challenges to getting it implemented correctly, so we’ll have to see what happens there.
We’ve been looking into this for a while. Recently we figured that we’d have to go out and get a $284 part, but your guide saved us a lot of money. I’m sure we’ll download this and try and run it tomorrow.
