Is anyone using Datalink for sports right now. I do a ton of sports and I have the latest LiveText with datalink and I want to use it for my clock, scoring, etc. BUT, does anyone know if there is a wireless solution I can use to make the connection to the scoreboard contoller at the stadium and then shoot it across the field to where our trailer is parked to then pull into my laptop running LiveText and Data Link.

You might want to look into the OCR solution - someone will post detail, I'm sure, or do a quick search. There was a thread about it last week.

ScoreOCR would be a good solution for you. You could setup a cheap camera and frame it on the scoreboard. In your trailer, ScoreOCR would monitor that clock camera and instantly create a data feed that LiveText can use for clock, score, and extra data.

Do a quick YouTube search and you'll see a short clip of us using ScoreOCR. Feel free to give me a call or email if you want details or want to chat about it.
