Racing facilities using LiveTime Scoring Engine now have access to new broadcast tools developed during LiveRC’s decade of experience transmitting RC racing events on the Internet from around the world. These new features were added to create a more enjoyable viewing experience for spectators and offer more marketing options for racetracks to make the most of their races.
The Race Video Archive is back, built more robustly and tweaked to capture the start of the race, every time - no longer does the recording begin when the “Start Race” button is pressed! Now viewers can go back to the replay and catch the first-turn pile-up.
A graphics overlay on the video feed mean tracks can add their track and racing event logos, as well as that of major sponsors. A scrolling information ticker at the top of the screen shows the current running order, as well as each driver’s fastest and latest lap times.
Tracks that have multiple cameras hooked up can use LiveTime’s new auto-switching feature to give viewers multiple angles of the racing surface. LiveTime will automatically switch between multiple cameras to track the leader of the race or a car of the race director’s choice - or even show a shot of the pit area or drivers’ stand between races. The only limit is your imagination!
Check out this replay of tonight's final practice heat from 360v2 Raceway in New Rochelle, New York, which is hosting their annual Stock Wars this weekend:
Current LiveTime tracks can access these features by upgrading to the latest version of the program. For more information on how to configure these new options, contact the LiveTime support team at (855) 232-6857 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
