What does GeniCam do for us?


To customize the content of billboard in sport games, e.g. for audience in different countries.

We change part of the video, namely the billboard content, while streaming the game. The end result is the billboard in streamed game video plays different content from the physical billboard on the game venue.

Our current cameras, all IP cameras, have two problems for this job:

  1. content needs to be decoded to process billboard, and then re-encoded, which is too much load on server
  2. hard to sync due to the delay introduced by codec and internet.

GeniCam cameras send raw video to our on site server through fiber network, with no decoding and ignorable delay. The cameras are connected to an IP strobe controller, as seen on picture.

Some components in addition to streaming are:

  1. Video process: OpenCV for object detection and Bayer pixel manipulation
  2. 3D billboard content generation: OpenGL
  3. Pull video from the cameras: GeniCam SDK
