Does the Sportzcast scoreboard overlay work when recording in 4K or only at 1080p?

The 4K and 1080p output is independent from the Sportzcast products. Sportzcast Scorebot data is natively integrated with most major sports production, broadcast & coaches tool platforms.

This camera is used to transmit on youtube and instagram?
Asked by: Mario
Yes, you can definitely stream to YouTube and I have used this camera with Facebook. Not sure about Instagram, but likely, as most of those services accept RTMP streams. The camera has a USB connection and you will need to buy either a wireless adapter (Hawking) or usb to wired ethernet connector. You can also use a wireless data device from the cell phone carriers. This camera is really good for sports as you can create your own scoreboard graphics. Scoreboard is updated using any cell phone or tablet that has a web browser. Also works with those Scorebot units.
