New Viz Flowics Data Connectors for Scoreboards, Car Racing, Betting, and Esports
Sports fans have come to expect up-to-the-minute information to appear on their screens when watching live sporting events. In fact, it’s hard to imagine the days without it. But that data has to come from somewhere, and somehow it has to make it into the graphics without delay.
Viz Data Connector simplifies the integration of external live data from different sources. For production teams that use Viz Flowics, this means streamlined broadcast graphics creation and operation. The data flows from source via the connector into Viz Flowics in real-time to auto-populate the on-air graphics.
