Here is details on how data for TV graphics could be gathered from FIBA LiveStats.
Actually there are two options:
- Use FIBA LiveStats TV Feed adapter application, which provides aggregated game live statistics in XML format, which is constantly updated after each game action.
- Directly read live messages from TCP server (created by FIBA LiveStats) and generate statistics by yourself.

All steps how to activate TV Feed in FIBA LiveStats are the same as in Option No.1. The main differences in Option No.2 is that you need read live messages from TCP server directly. This is the hard way, because you’ll need to read and aggregate statistics by yourselves, which requires invest more time to develop your own solution, which would meet your own requirements.
Please note that TCP server is created on port 7676 on statistician’s computer.
