I’m looking at ways in which I can use info-beamer in a live sports scenario, primarily football matches.
The idea is to have either static image or video files playing, which would contain sponsor adverts from the Pi to a big screen, but to also have an overlay at the top of the screen that can be customised to include team logos and also be able to display the current score, which would obviously require a simple and quick method of updating when a goal is scored.
I’d also like to be able to have the ability to switch to a ‘Goal’ message whenever a goal is scored. I was thinking of a second Pi that is just constantly playing an animated ‘Goal’ message, and by using a simple HDMI input switcher the message could be displayed on screen for a few seconds.
I appreciate that this is pretty complex, especially the live score overlay, but is this something that can be done?
