How do you get the times and names of the swimmers on your live stream? That's where Swimnerd Live comes in. It creates a virtual scoreboard for your swim meet so that anyone with an internet connection can see, in actual real-time, what is happening in the water at your swim met.
It also allows you to overlay your virtual scoreboard over top of your video stream so that your audience knows who is swimming and what their times are. You can even customize your virtual scoreboard with your team's logo and colors, like this example:
With COVID limiting spectators, Swimnerd Live is the quintessential companion to live streaming your swim meet. You of course need a camera and a hard wired internet connection. Don't have a hard wire internet connection? Get one.
There have been many meets where the team could not be on the pool deck or did not have easy access to the scoreboard. You simply direct your audience to https://swimnerd.live/ and they easily follow the progress of the meet in actual real-time.
Our goal is to get your swim meet to your audience with as less friction as possible. We don't want Grandma to have to download an app, sign up and verify her email, or (Heavens to Betsy) whip out her credit card.
There are a lot of different ways to live stream your swim meet -- Swimnerd Live is compatible with all of them. Have questions about compatibility? Call us 757-955-6273.
