What Is Video Scoreboard?

In the past, a scoreboard was just a scoreboard, limited by expensive and maintenance intensive technologies with only a single application. Now, with Video Scoreboard™ (VSB), your gym or sports venue has a powerful new multi-media tool with endless capabilities for managing sporting events, classes, assemblies and presentations. However…

 

Scorekeeping is just the beginning™…
VSB systems incorporate large, state-of-the-art, vibrant, full-motion LED video screens that can do so much more. VSB is also a valuable learning tool that gets more students involved with school events. Video Scoreboard PRO™ systems include a full 4K live production suite, allowing you to have many of the same tools professional sports venues use while doubling as a learning platform in live video production. Live cameras, instant replay, slow motion, referee whistle integrations, shot clocks, statistics and external sports broadcasts are just a few examples of VSB’s long list of options. Take your venue to the next level with Video Scoreboard™. Watch the following video or continue reading below for more information.

Multiple Sport Formats and Full Motion Video

– Show advertisements for local businesses, an interview with the coach, live camera feed, HD video content or graphics.

4Highly Visible Displays
(Better Than a Projector)

– Our LED displays work great in fully lit gyms, auditoriums or other venues. Conversely, projectors require near darkness to avoid looking washed out.

– Increased flexibility with installation locations, while projectors are difficult to position to get good results.

– Engineered to run 24/7 and can go from black to full bright in a fraction of a second, whereas projectors require warm up time and run hot.

– Our displays provide 100,000 hours of typical usage, unlike projectors which consume expensive lamps with much less life.

5Optimized Control Station

– VSB PRO Systems come with an equipment rack/control console combo for ease of use and storage.

– Controlled by a standard computer keyboard and mouse, or two 10” wireless mobile touch-screens, one for scorekeeping and one for time keeping.

– Designed to be rolled out of storage at game time, plugged into the house sound system and controlled from court side.

– Video inputs include the scoreboard server, DVD player, Media Player and optional hand held wired and wireless cameras.

– Optional hard-wired button devices for scoreboard control.

3Scalable LED Displays

– LED displays are built from standardized modules that can be assembled into a screen to meet your size requirements.

– Common display sizes, as determined by individual module sizes, are 169”, 214”, and 259” measured diagonally.

– Common sizes maintain an approximate aspect ratio of 16:9 to remain compatible with most video formats.

– Custom aspect ratios and screen configurations are available for displays such as the scorers table shown to the left.

– Displays are serviceable from the front by removing magnetically attached individual LED modules from the display.

– VSB can be used as a teaching tool in a video production class as a hands on experience for students.

– VSB gets more students involved in school sports with the opportunity for advertising, videography or production.

6Generate Revenue
