Indoor Sports Scoreboard Features
Below are some features of the software. For a full example of how the system works, please see the demo.
This is the scoreboard that is displayed for netball or soccer fixtures. You can increase or decrease the home and away scores using the remote control, start and stop the clock, change the time or period and save the fixture at the end of the match, all from down on the court via the remote controls.
You can choose to display each individual period's scores on the scoreboard. The Spawtz League and Venue Management software will automatically add bonus points for each period one if you have configured the league to award such bonus points.
This is the default layout for the indoor cricket scoreboard. It has been designed to display as much information as possible in the space available. However, if you don't like the default layout, you can design and create your own layout.
Display Images or Animations
Images or animations can be displayed after fixture events such as a goal being scored, a seven being hit or a hat-trick being taken. A standard animation pack is available (see this page
to view the animations available in this pack) or you can create your own league or sponsor specific animations. These animations add the "wow" factor to your arena!
When opening fixtures from a website or a file, you can select the fixture you want to score using the pc or laptop, or the remote control if you are scoring a netball or soccer fixture.
Choose shirt colours
You can select which colours the teams are wearing and those colours will then be used to display their team names on the scoreboard.
Umpires get the full view, players get the summary
If you have one screen for your umpire and one screen for your players, then each screen can display different information. In that instance the umpire can have the full scoresheet on his or her screen, while the screen for the players just shows the summary information.
When opening a fixture from a website or a file, a list of the players who are registered with each team will already appear in all of the batsmen and bowler drop down lists. You can select the appropriate player either using the mouse, the arrow keys or by typing part of the name. If the name does not already exist in the drop down, you can type in a new name to add it to that team's list of players.
To score the fixture, you simply enter the score into the applicable text box for each ball in the over. As you enter scores in each over, the scoreboard summary is updated and displayed to the players.
Extras and Wickets
The valid entries for scores for each ball are completely configurable by you. By default, the valid entries are w (wide), nb (no ball), ls (leg side wide), r (run out), s (stumped), c (caught), b (bowled), lbw (leg before wicket), m (mankad) and other variations of those (for example, ro for run out). For any results which extras may be scored on (such as wides and no balls) an extras section will pop up for you to fill in any extras that were scored.
If extra balls are required in any of the overs (due to a Mankad having been bowled in any over or a wide or no ball in the last over of a skin) you can click the button to add an extra ball to any over.
At the end of the fixture, you can print out the scoresheet to give to the players to mull over in the bar. Note that on the scoresheet, any wickets are shown with a circle around them and each over shows how many wickets were taken for how many runs so the bowlers can see how this fixture might affect their stats. And if you have opened this fixture from a website, as soon as you save the fixture, the scoresheet will become available on the internet, and the stats for all the players involved in the fixture will immediately be updated.
Smartphone Remote Controls
You can control the scoreboard application using the specialised remote and receiver hardware or using any iOS or Android based device. Remote control software for the scoreboards is available in the Android Market and in the App Store.
