"We love that we can hand a iPad with the scoreboard app installed to an intern or student with little to no experience to keep track of the score. The graphics looked so clean and fresh and fit our budget. The ease of use was a major plus for us and being able to control the scoreboard wirelessly was right on cue."

Interview

We contacted William Warfield, the owner of PrepSpin, MiLB-TV and KHSAA TV producer and asked him a few questions about his company and how Live Score influenced the way he works and broadcasts.
Thank you for the interview.



1. Tell us something about you and your company/work?

It started as a hobby and now PrepSpin is the leading high school sports broadcast network in the USA.
We broadcast more games and events then most major TV networks.
In addition to the high school broadcasts, in 2015 we also streamed 50 NCAA Div 1 college basketball games and 72 minor league baseball games online.


2. How did you find Live Score and what was your first impression?

We found Live Score through a google search. We always strive to be the best and improve on our existing product.
When we've seen Live Score the first time we knew it was something that we wanted to try immediately.

The graphics looked so clean and fresh and fit our budget.
The ease of use was a major plus for us and being able to control the scoreboard wirelessly was right on cue.


3. How do you use Live Score and how does it change the way you work?

We use Live Score in combination with vMix, Tricaster and Wirecast.
The program makes it simple to export a dynamic png image that constantly updates the graphic inside each of the programs.
We have also tested the software with the Blackmagic Design ATEM . We do that by using the HDMI output that Live Score is able to send signal out through our graphics card. Then we plug HDMI into the ATEM and Key the scorebug. All work amazingly well. We love that we can hand an iPad with the scoreboard app installed to an intern or student with little to no experience to keep track of the score.



4. Which projects and shows have you been involved and what are you currently working on?

PrepSpin is partners with our state high school association and we broadcast all state championship events.
We're also partners with the Lexington Legends and produce all home games for the Class A Affiliate of the Kansas City Royals .
In the fall high school sports take over and that keeps us busy most of the year. Our biggest sports season by far is basketball.
