The ice hockey arena in Sedlčany is a popular sports venue among residents of all ages in this Central Bohemian town. Like many other nearby sports facilities, however, it isn’t always big enough to accommodate everyone. Therefore, the director of the arena, has long been considering investing in a live broadcast from the ice rink that would allow potential visitors to see in real-time how busy the arena is and also let grandparents and other supporters of the local junior hockey players watch practice and matches. The final and best solution for it was the Axis camera and application CamStreamer App with streaming to YouTube.
Camera tests demonstrated that the AXIS P1375-E would be best suited to the live broadcast. The camera can broadcast video in FULL HD quality at a rate of 60 frames per second, so it has no trouble capturing even more dynamic sports like hockey. Additionally, it features a sufficient viewing angle and supports audio transmission. Thanks to the technology Lightfinder 2.0, the camera can also produce high-quality shots in poor light conditions. The direct and simple transmission of the video stream to the YouTube platform is handled by the CamStreamer App, which runs directly on board the camera.
Displaying the score of a match in the picture is handled via application CamOverlay App and its service Picture-in-Picture.
