    San Diego - Tricaster help, 300,450,850???

    Looking for a short term loaner system 300, 450, 850 for testing. Just to refresh everyone's memory. Our company Graphics Outfitters developed the Scoreboard OCR, ScoreOCR application that allows you to generate game data feeds by shooting a camera at the scoreboard system using OCR type technology.

    We now have developed what, we hope, at least according to the Newtek IVGA SDK, using VLC as a test methodology, a direct IVGA integration with our Foxbox Graphics systems.

    Here is a couple of scenes we have successfully played back into VLC as the Newtek instructions provide in their developer SDK..

    Might have to copy and past these links into your browser.

    Shootout

    However, since some of us have been to Missouri. We want to see this "show me" working into an actual Tricaster.

    So we are looking for someone locally who would like to help us out and let us test this with a Tricaster?

    Newtek said they could arrange a loaner system, but we thought we would try locally in San Diego (North County) first. (Also might be helpful to have someone whom actually knows how to run the thing?)

    Thank you for your time,

    First of all, thank you everyone that responded. Your outpouring of assistance is heart warming.

    We actually sent some files to WebStream in Indianapolis where we tested it on one of their in-house Tricasters. WebStream reports that the results were outstanding... WebStream will be posting some movie files next week that show the results. Now we need to move forward and find a used system for permanent use in our lab.

    If anyone knows of a good used HD system ie 300 that is available for sale, please let us know. We just need the network inputs functioning.
    Thanks for everything,
