SPORTZCAST Control Room is a game-changing automated sports scoring & streaming solution. An industry first, SPORTZCAST's Control Room enables live sporting events with automated in-camera scoring and graphics to be streamed from a single camera without the need for ANY additional equipment or manpower. Actual examples are the March 2018 USF Softball tournament in Clearwater that was made possible with SPORTZCAST Control Room. The tournament included 6 fields with only a single operator remotely monitoring & overseeing all games from Orlando! Another example is USA Softball with 15 fields across 3 geographic locations. These would simply not have been possible without Control Room due to the costs involved. Without SPORTZACST’s Control Room, each field would have needed expensive equipment, complex setup, and additional operators making it prohibitive to produce and stream the events.
