Sports Rubbish points us toward a neat new invention from a company called Yoostar, that has created a program that leads you add your own commentary to NBA games. The company announced a partnership with the NBA at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and for just $149.95 (plus purchase of each team's videos), you can be the next Marv Albert!
For each NBA team, game footage of the final minutes from a memorable game will be available for fans to access and deliver their personal commentary. Select NBA Draft clips will also be available for fans to insert commentary. The NBA video highlights and NBA Draft clips will be available for purchase and download at NBA.com and www.yoostar.com.I have no idea why anyone would be willing to pay $149.95 for something that they could technically do for free with a cheap microphone and Youtube (and in this economy), but more power to Yoostar and the NBA.
The NBA joins a stellar group of Yoostar content providers including Paramount Pictures Corporation, Universal Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. and Lions Gate Films, Inc.
The Yoostar system ($149.95 suggested retail price) includes all the tools to turn a home or office into a broadcast studio: a sophisticated camera with built-in microphone, green screen, remote control and Yoostar software that runs on both PCs and Macs. The system comes with an assortment of clips, with hundreds of additional film scenes and television moments available for purchase and download at www.yoostar.com.
