Live Scoring System

We have developed bespoke live scoring systems to improve the overall management, information collection and scoring accuracy across a tournament. Key clients include ATP, ITF and Wimbledon.

Core services include:

  • Scoring apps used by chair umpires
  • Tournament management tools used by supervisors
  • Data distribution software

Recognising that one size doesn’t always fit all – we can create tailormade solutions to suit all requirements. For example, we have built three additional services exclusively for the ATP: Tennis Manager, Smart Director and Pro Scorer.

In-venue display systems

Featuring ‘true black’ technology alongside high-density LEDs (3.9mm and 5.9mm), our displays provide next level in-venue engagement.

Our team, made up of over 50 leading engineers, allows us to adapt and update our displays on a regular basis. As with all our services we offer a fully customisable solution with no limits.

Draw ceremony

This is one of the pivotal moments of any tournament and can have a huge impact on the flow of play. With IMG ARENA this moment becomes even more spectacular and captivating as the draw ceremony is supersized on screens across the venue. Player rankings, achievements and positions are displayed with the current status of the draw to engage fans. After the ceremony, data is immediately published online and distributed locally.

Electronic
coin toss

The electronic coin toss was first introduced by our team in 2016. Equivalent to a traditional coin toss, this digital update delivers further marketing and sponsorship opportunities for Rightsholders. The entire process is carried out by a chair umpire and transmitted live throughout the venue.

Onsite Tech

We understand that not all areas around a tournament are suitable for the installation of large, display units. However, the information they display is essential for players, umpires, the media and the public. Our systems integrate with CCTV and IPTV systems, which allows information to reach everyone, everywhere, in real time. Our services include:

  • CCTV full HD feed
  • TV rental
  • TV installation and cabling
