Waffle: Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be maintenance on the camera if it’s left outside?
Can we add sponsors logos to the stream?
Yes, you can add your sponsor’s logo in the preview of the stream, which will then make sure their logo can be seen throughout the entire stream.
Can we add the score to the stream?
Yes, at any point throughout the stream you can type the score and it will be shown on the stream. There is no restriction to the format, so you could put “112/3” or “Smith on 49*” and it will show.
How do we ensure the angle of the sight screen is right to capture the footage?
Can we have multiple angles?
Certainly. If you buy two iCasts (both would come with a shelf) then you can connect the two iCasts to the control app, place each iCast at each end, and then through the app you will be able to manually switch from iCast 1 to iCast 2, so that you’re always behind the bowler.
What are the benefits of live streaming to clubs?
Clubs who have used the service so far have seen numbers of viewers of their streams in excess of 1000. They have also seen a rise in the number of people “liking” their Facebook page as a result. But the biggest benefit that the clubs who use Waffle have seen, is the engagement in the footage from players. Those that have played the game, those who played in other club teams that day, and old players who are checking back in to see how the team are doing.
Is there any capability to do instant replays during the stream?
Can I get highlights created from the footage captured on the live stream?
Yes, this is possible. Waffle can create a short highlights package for you for £20.. Our most recent of these reached almost 3,000 views for the club within 7 days.
Can more than one phone control the stream at one time?
How do I download the footage? Where does it go?
What about GDPR and club safe guarding?
Can I live stream practices, too?
Of course you can. Positioning the sight-screen behind bowlers in net practices is one way you can do this. We will also shortly have a tripod accessory which will enable you to attach your iCast to a tripod, for closer action during practices.
