How to send data to Wirecast?

There are several ways how to send data from Scoreboard OCR to Wirecast:

  1. Using Multiple TXT Files. Wirecast since v12 supports reading TXT files 10x times a second
  2. Using Browser Window

1. Using Multiple TXT Files

  1. Since v12 Wirecast can read TXT files 10x a second, therefore is able to display 1/10 of a second.
  2. In Scoreboard OCR choose “Multiple TXT files”
  3. Add fields. Based on the fields defined in Scoreboard OCR this will create and regularly update multiple TXT files each containing value of the field. For example, “clock.txt”, “score_a.txt”, “score_b.txt” each will contain their respective values.
  • In Wirecast Choose Text:

  • Then change Source to File:

  • Repeat previous step for each field (clock, score_a, score_b, etc)

2. Using Browser Window

If your graphics engine by default does not support reading data from sources at least 10x a second (which is crucial for some sports such as basketball), most probably you can use an alternative approach - add scoreboard data using a Browser Window.
