Produce meaningful content quickly

Boost your efficiency

To keep fans engaged, you’ve got to present relevant, timely data that corresponds to the gameplay at hand. With Maestro | Live, you can produce and playout stunning action-based, data-driven, real-time on-air and virtual graphics, sports enhancements, and video with unmatched speed and ease. All from a single cost-effective solution that streamlines your entire live sports workflow.

Simplify your workflow

Maestro | Live now offers direct integration with MediaCentral right from its interface, enabling teams to find and access media easily across your platform—no matter where the assets are stored. Quickly locate and repurpose relevant images, graphics templates, and clips from MediaCentral for use in your production without leaving Maestro | Live. You can even present and control Media Composer sequences stored on Avid NEXIS right from Maestro | Live.

Work easier with a smart UI

Maestro | Live comes with a ready-to-use interface to help get you started on covering any major sporting event. Its groundbreaking design features a responsive UI that updates dynamically according to the game’s progress, making it easy to manage volumes of incoming data, respond to the action as it happens, and populate the most meaningful info quickly. You can also modify, customize, or create your own UI for any sports, production, or operational need so you can jump into the next production without wasting time.

Cover any sport, anywhere

Thanks to its smart UI, you can easily customize the Maestro | Live interface to scale to any type of sports production—whether you’re covering major league teams, college games, or your local rubber duck derby. The system’s compact design also enables you to set up operation practically anywhere—in a studio, a booth at the game, or in an OB van. Plus, you get the same intuitive operation, whether you access the interface using a desktop computer, laptop, or touchscreen device.

Preview NDI video sources directly—NEW

No need for a grabber or capture card. With support for NewTek NDI, you can now use an NDI source as a preview right within Maestro | Live—with unlimited SDI connections. And because there are over a million video cameras, software applications, servers, switchers, graphics systems, and other devices that support the video transmission technology, it gives you more workflow flexibility and opens up many more creative possibilities.

Present data-driven graphics

When it comes to sports, being able to present up-to-the-second accurate and relevant info is critical. Maestro | Live easily connects to real-time sports data feeds—including STATS, Opta, Sportzcast, and others—as well as to any scoreboard and clock protocol within the venue. All without programming or scripting. You can then connect data to any graphic with a simple drag and drop. It also supports MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Excel, Microsoft Access, Text, and XML.

Increase production and business value

With on-air graphics, augmented reality content, and video playout in one, Maestro | Live enables you to produce more dynamic content than your standard graphics system alone. When paired with the Maestro | Engine rendering platform, you can elevate the look of your virtual graphics and have a future-proof solution that makes it easy to transition from HD to UHD, and HDR, over SDI.

Discover Maestro | Engine

Update graphics on the fly

Once connected to a real-time database, Maestro | Live can automatically populate any Maestro | Designer-created graphic with the latest game, team, and player information and images. Even new stats and lineup changes will automatically update as soon as the data is available, minimizing potential on-air mistakes in today’s dynamic and demanding live sports production. You can even preview data before it goes to air to make sure there aren’t any errors.

Add sports enhancements

Maestro | Live now enables a single operator to present both tracked-to-the-field sports enhancements and on-air graphics from the same UI. It features a sports-dedicated chroma key that can distinguish between different lighting conditions on the field and different shades of jerseys that might be similar in color to the pitch. Plus, it now supports HDR content, enabling you to create seamless high-quality composites faster, with easier sampling. So you can rest assured that your graphics are presented accurately—from first down lines and player tracking, to virtual ads.

Run your show your way

Present content across multiple platforms

Maestro | Live gives you the flexibility to present and route content the way you want. With up to 16 output channels available, you can produce and playout content to multiple feeds and for multiple purposes, such as for social media and digital platforms. For example, you can send your main feed to air, a different graphics layer to your digital media, and an animated background across your studio’s video walls.

Create multiple programs for remote broadcast—NEW

Increase advertising revenue without increasing your budget. With new remote control capabilities in the Sports plugin workflow, you can create multiple versions of a program from a single on-air source in your studio (PGM) and send them out for remote broadcast. All chroma key and tracking data is passed along with it too, enabling any virtual ads to be extended into the new programs.

Get flexible operation

Maestro | Live is incredibly flexible, enabling you to control both on-air and virtual graphics from a single solution. You can choose to run your entire show with just a single operator—from a remote location in the studio or at the venue itself. Or if you need to handle different facets of a larger, more complex production, you can divide tasks between two or three operators and UIs, all controlling the same Maestro | Live system.
