FIRST Scoreboard System

If you could design your own scoreboard for FIRST how would it look?

here is a rough idea of how mine would look on the screen, webcast, or on NASA TV (if they ever go HD...)



so, what do you guys think?

Re: FIRST Scoreboard System

I like the idea of the score being visible, but not cluttering up the whole screen.

Re: FIRST Scoreboard System

The scoring scoreboard should follow a simple/minimalist, yet effective, design.

It should not take up too much real estate on the screen. Both the current scores and the time left in the match should be very easy to see with only a quick glance. Team numbers, the alliances, and the current match are also important, but do not have to be as large.

Another consideration to be made is that while HD is nice for recording the matches for later viewing, most webcasts are anything but. Therefore, anything on the screen has to be easily discernible even when the video size is compressed down to small sizes for online webcasts.

I wouldn't include any additional information on the screen besides the above listed information during the match, because all it would be doing is potentially blocking one's view of the robots. Display all that information on the screen between matches.

Here's a quick mockup I made, using clean lines, large text, and partial transparency where it would look classy. (Though regionals with lower-powered A/V computers for doing the chroma key overlays could probably just use a non-transparent black background in those areas.)

Re: FIRST Scoreboard System



Thats a simple one I came up with, not much time or computer to do it right with, but thats at NTSC resolution (prolly more pixels per inch but i couldnt find that) I agree that less info is more important, while all thoes tickers, fact and whatnot would be awesome if the majority of the people watching wasnt on a webcast.

Re: FIRST Scoreboard System

Personally, I think the solution involves looking at the past:

Even in grainy webcast form, you can read every word on the screen.

Re: FIRST Scoreboard System

First of all, all scores/team numbers should be big, so in miniscreen on webcast it will be visible and read easily.

A good addition, i think is taht during Autnomous/ end game it might be a good idea splitting the screen so the viewers can ee both alliances in real time...

Re: FIRST Scoreboard System

looking back, I think that triple play was one of the worst as far as scoreboards.
in this picture there is a whole robot you can't see. The only thing I like about this layout is the status of each goal, even though it was difficult for them to be instantly updated with all the action on the field. I would have to agree that simplicity trumps any little dads on the screen.
