Building on the video kiosk project, we created a much larger system for Sports Capture. The details of this story are fascinating, and we have a more detailed case study in progress. Like our other video work, we worked with an A/V integration firm.
In this larger system, also based on our Video Suite software, a set of networks servers work together to recording multiple video streams; each records the same event (golfers playing a signature hole) from a different angle. Later, the streams are correlated in time, composited, transcoded, and recorded to DVD. The result, delivered by the time the golfers finish their round, is a keepsake.
One area of extra complexity in this project is a pattern recognition system which uses wireless signal data to detect the when each group of golfers enters and exits the hole area. This subsystem (developed in Ruby) makes highly outside-the-box use of off-the-shelf hardware and software to perform its function at a small fraction of the cost of a more conventional solution.
A second unusual aspect of this system is its installation at a very rural location: the nearest technicians are hours away by car. Thus, even moreso than other Oasis Digital projects, we delivered an unusually robust, self-healing implementation.
