We use digital photo-finish cameras to determine athletes finishing times and places for all races in track & field. The cameras run at 1,000 frames per second with the capability of running as high as 10,000 frames per second. This is the standard timing practice for any major event in the world these days such as the Olympics.
Displays clocks can be placed in various locations to display the current running time of the race in progress. This also displays split times for the leader and the finish times.
We have the capability to provide field event displays at each field event currently in progress. The display is connected to the infield data network so it can show updates from the computer sitting at the event. This information is also updated on the internet and on the in stadium information systems.
Additionally horizontal events can be measured with an electronic distance measurement system. This eliminates the need for pulling a measuring tape across the field. The system also integrates directly with the software to display the mark instantly.
Wind gauges and countdown clocks can also be driven by the infield network allowing us to control all the necessary displays from one location.
We can drive in stadium display boards with results, splits, field event standings and other pieces of information available allowing the crowd to get real-time information updates.
Using our unique scoring platform we can provide results and team scores for any event and update the internet in real time. Using the internet you can display the current races results, currently standings in all the field events, current competitor data in those field events and more customized data to the spectators.
We provide a Commentator Information System for in-stadium announcers and broadcast production. CIS allows you to follow events with attempt by attempt updates in field events and live updates for track events. Rankings are compiled and updated in real-time allowing the announcer to keep track of numerous events that are happening simultaneously. This is best practiced in track & field competitor but can also be modified for other events needing data services.
For Standard Meets, PTT utilizes HyTek Meet Manager for Meet Scoring. HyTek is part of the Active Network
