Simplified Game Day and Live Event Production
While no two games are ever the same, your game day line-up is typically pretty routine. Until the home team scores comes back from a three goal deficit in the last two minutes of the game, and you decide it’s time to make a change and keep the crowd on fire. This is where Inception Live excels, allowing you to quickly make changes to the line-up, and pass that information along to everyone in the production chain in a fully collaborative interface.

Inception allows you to start with a blank slate, customizing everything about the production grid including column headings, sizing, positioning, and whether certain columns are visible or hidden, and save those changes in a perspective for a specific user, role, or shared among the entire team. Content added or updated in the grid is reflected instantly to all users, and producers can build outlines and templates that can be re-used on a game by game basis. Enter sponsor, timing, segment, and any other production notes into the line-up, and converse with other users in real-time as the game progresses with the built-in messaging functionality. Optionally, users can enable playout for a game day lineup, allowing the entire team to follow along with what’s on air, and what’s coming up at a glance, from their workstations, laptops, or even iPads.

Social Media Has Never Been Easier
Inception was built from day one with multi-platform content in mind, and its highly modular design integrates social media and Web interaction right into the heart of your production.

With Inception, you are able to leverage social media more efficiently than ever before. Interact with your online community and publish text, image, and video content to social media to improve audience engagement for your team on game day. Through the powerful discovery and curation tools, discover news content from social media, and utilize this content directly into your live event via a simple drag and drop interface with XPression or other graphics systems. Bringing in fan comments, photos, and avatars, and getting them displayed right onto the scoreboard or other digital displays throughout the venue has never been easier.

Inception also provides tools such as social media filters and interactive polls that directly drive content to your on-air graphics and offer unique ways to engage with your viewers. Let your fans decide who the three stars are.
