It’s time to bench your old scoreboard. Watchfire makes selecting and installing premium videoboards a snap with preassembled video displays for gymnasiums, field houses and recreation centers. These interior displays can stand alone as a virtual scoreboard or be paired with a fixed digit scoreboard.
“High schools, community colleges and sports complexes are taking a page out of the pro team playbook to ramp up the fan experience and provide new sponsorship opportunities with upgraded digital displays,” said Kyle Dines, vice president of sports and indoor at Watchfire Signs. “Our preassembled videoboards and gameday content management software make it easy and affordable to fire up fans at any level of play.”
These videoboards are produced in six different sizes, ranging from 3’x8’ to 10’x16’, to fit through most gym doors and be installed by a small group. They ship in one or two pieces (depending on the finished size), and include mounting brackets, wiring and easy-to-understand instructions. These videoboards can be quickly installed in a single day by volunteers, a maintenance crew or a local contractor.
Watchfire’s preassembled displays are available in two resolutions, 3.9mm and 5.9mm. Both choices are built for brilliant color uniformity and optimal performance.
Each videoboard comes with everything you need to create an operation center, including a powerful PC, a tablet for scoring and Watchfire Ignite Sports gameday management software.
The software seamlessly integrates scoring, timing, live video, crowd prompts and advertising with a drag and drop interface. Player profiles, ad zones and sponsor playlists can be created quickly with a built-in editor and animation library.
Ignite Sports includes templates for basketball, volleyball, wrestling and multipurpose scoring. Watchfire offers free one-on-one webinars and online training videos for staff, volunteers and students operating Ignite Sports. Plus, there are no annual fees.
Dines added, “We hope anyone in the market to replace their old gymnasium scoreboards reach out to us. Many schools are surprised to learn how affordable full video displays are in comparison to traditional static scoreboards.”
