“The USBC Open Championships is a one-of-a-kind event with more than 60,000 participants bowling in a custom-built arena inside a convention center. With competition running morning, noon and night for five months, USBC is pleased to partner with TrueLook to share live video and pictures of the action and show everyone the largest participatory sporting event in the world.” -Brian Lewis, USBC Managing Director of Tournaments
The 2012 USBC Open Championships begins February 11 in Baton Rouge, LA. Over 60,000 bowlers will assemble from around the world to compete for a prize fund that tops $6 million.
In years past, the webcams have seen significant traffic. Last year’s USBC webcams were accessed by over 65,000 unique users, and received over 1 million page views. In addition to watching the cameras’ live broadcast, webcam users can save and download images using the TrueLook web interface. The webcams also include a feature that allows easy sharing to Facebook and Twitter.
In addition to streaming live events such as these, TrueLook technology is also utilized in the construction, entertainment, and travel industries. Construction cameras allow project managers to monitor and time-lapse their projects, while resort and destination webcams are popular tools for immersive web marketing.
