I discovered Caspar only a month ago and it was love at first sight.
I have been streaming from basketball games from my local team for some years now, and until recently we have been on 0 budget. Borrowed camera there, and borrowed old laptop there. You know the drill.
Now we have BMD TVS and few cameras of our own, and I have been searching for ways to do a professional looking graphics without the score cam.
But I am all out of luck regarding data for the graphics. There is no data port on the old scoreboard, and the statistic program that is in use by the basketball federation has a 40-120 sec delay in data delivery. So my only option is score cam or scoreboard ocr. Only ocr solution I have found is ScoreOCR and that costs arm and a leg, and it seemed that I was stuck with score cam.
But I didn't give up. I started a mockup of a program using OpenCV library and I wanted some input from you guys, before I dive completely into codeland.
The idea is not to do character recognition but reading the segments, as marked on the picture
Have you seen something simular to this?
