Drawing Live Telestrator Graphics on a TriCaster

Most people are familiar with “telestrating” from network-level sports production, where it has been in use for many years. The ability to draw on video in real time is the domain of the telestrator, a tool that applies graphics via hardware and software to stills and clips of video.

Products are coming into the market now that can bring high-quality telestrator capability to virtually any level of production.  Not only sports but news, education, medicine, game tourneys and more can benefit from a telestrator to help analysts, teachers and presenters provide a visual component to their explanations of play action, maps, landscapes, medical scans, events and more to audiences.
