SportApps™ Launch at NAB 2014
AJT Systems will be releasing their SportApp™ Score Bug Playout Software at NAB 2014. The SportApp™ application and templates are tailored to each sport – promoting an intuitive workflow and offering compelling Score Bug layouts. The stunning user interface includes unique features, such as a preview channel and on-air monitoring with smart zoom (Patent Pending). The score bug supports automatic clock and score updates, seamless header messages, sponsor and network logo insertion, and uses full motion animation for transitions on/off air, show messages, score change, sponsors, etc.
The SportApps™ playout software comes preloaded on the 2nd Generation LiveBook GFX™. This powerful, portable, production-ready system comes with a Video IO box, Thunderbolt cables, and the Camino™ template authoring software for endless customization possibilities.
The Camino™ template authoring tool includes full Unicode support, advanced text formatting, support for multiple graphic file formats, video and audio clip playback, real-time keyframe based non-linear animation, intelligent data driven transitions, 3D objects, and 3D DVE. Rich, dynamic content can be easily generated to create a unique look for your sports Score Bug. The Camino™ editor for the on-air look is full featured like a Chyron or Viz Artist Character Generator system, only with an easier workflow similar to graphics tools like Photoshop and AfterEffects.
SportApps™ also has a mobile application (available for Apple & Android devices) that allows the user to turn their smart phone or tablet into a remote control to view and update game data with the swipe of a finger.
AJT Systems support staff stands behind their LiveBook™ systems from setup, to customization, and on game day – ensuring your successful broadcast with their SportApps™. Currently AJT is supporting Basketball on their SportApps™.
The Basketball SportApp™ has the following sport-specific features:
- Automatic and Manual Game Clock

- Automatic and Manual Home/Visitor Scores.
- Header Messages for displaying Basketball Stats and other information
