I would appreciate any inputs / thoughts / ideas on the below.
My client wants to set up a small stage at an event. They want to set up a video camera that is positioned underneath a TV, so that the video camera feeds live to the TV.
The TV will show the what the video camera is seeing, however they also want to add a transparent graphic of transparent video layer on top of what the video camera is capturing, so that it looks like augmented reality.
They then want to be able to take a screenshot of the camera (capturing the video camera feed and video layer on top of it).
Here is an example: https://youtu.be/9NDYhF2dVcg?t=17s
What we need to do:
01 - map video overlay on top of live camera feed and display it back on the tv
02 - we’ll need to provide the event manager with a UI (web app?) so that he can see what’s on the screen (or should we use a desktop app)
03 - the event manager needs to be able to take a screenshot and save to local server
I never tried it, but here are some options:
I think CasparCG (http://www.casparcg.com/features ) being free is what you need. You control from a PC, so you can make print screens. Has client remote control.
You may integrate it with HTML or Adobe Edge Animate or other static images.
Here are some examples:
