Anyone have a good US Football scoreboard that they can share or sell me?

Looking for one that I can put score, downs, yardages, and penalties on it.

I made one myself that I use with Vmix. It is made in photo Shop with a area cut out so you can show the time using a camera cropped on the score board. Then I created a Vmix title to put in the teams, score, down, yds and qtr. I will see if I can find a jpg file of it.

I haven't figured out how to paste pictures inside a post.

Have you tried the new Title designer that Martin has just released? You could design your own with custom logos in photoshop and then apply all the appropriate text fields for all the variables you need.

More work than the other options, but probably the most flexible, would be to create a Flash 'swf' and overlay it over the video (Add Input | Flash/RTMP). You can make the topmost container of the Flash component transparent, and then surface only the controls used to compose the scorecard. You'd probably need to use a web service to get the changing data, but again, you can do virtually anything with this technique, including controlling vMix itself through the REST API.

There's a few wobbles to get past, almost certainly on the Flash side, and it's a big learning curve, but it definitely can work quite well. I'd gravitate towards FlashBuilder from the beginning so you have repeatability and the ability to leverage ActionScript. You may have better luck with the older 'mx' components than the newer Spark, and may have to use 'cacheAsBitmap=true' (or similar - typing from memory) on some controls to avoid some transparency issues. If this is a big project then the investment could be worth it.

We can automate getting the data from your scoreboard into vmix using your custom graphic. Check out www.sportzcast.net
