I would like to show you our new project. We are going to release first version very soon (hope in few weeks).
CasparConnect is graphics generator based on Windows which is capable to very easily create HTML templates. You find there nice editor where you can define all the graphic, dynamic fields, animations etc and then simply create a links between dynamic fields and your data sources. We are working for professional broadcast that is why we added the support for protocols like Probel SW-08 or Ember+. It means that you can set a logic on your Events in the playlist which can control for example your routers, automation or control systems. We successfully integrated beta version in OB Van where it is connected with LAWO VSM Studio (Control system).
Another important point is “Sport Module”. You can define your leagues, teams and match days and according to a results the App automatically generates all a results which are linked into your templates.
Of course if you already have created some HTML or Flash templates, there is a way for import and also you can link it with the data sources you have.
We would like to ask you for any inputs, ideas which you could imagine to have in the solution like this. Our plan is to release free version which can be used by the community and the extra features will be paid.
Here you can see the first beta version we have for testing.
