The Standard Edition of Live Score contains different scoreboard layouts, that provide all features and optional color adjustments.

This scoreboard is a typical full-length scoreboard with shape indicators for Strikes, Balls and Outs. The Field on the right side displays shapes for runners. All elements can be hidden if not operated.

Scoreboard #2

Scoreboard #2 is a more modern scoreboard, which is most often displayed in a top or bottom corner of the broadcast. Strikes and Balls are displayed as numbers, Outs are shown with circle shapes. This scoreboard does also have the option to show images for the two teams. Team images have a basic size of 25 x 20. The main image is 50 x 20.

Scoreboard #3

This scoreboard is the most realistic one. It contains a complete visualization of a baseball field for the runners display. The rectangle form makes it perfect for displaying it at the edge of the screen. Strikes, Balls and Outs are displayed as numbers. This scoreboard does also have the option to show images for the two teams. Team images have a basic size of 21 x 23.

Scoreboard #4

Scoreboard #4 is a brand new flat and fresh design with all relevant data like Runs, Strikes, Balls, Pitch Count, Bases and more. Use the Color Manager to create the perfect layout for your broadcast.

Scoreboard #5

This scoreboard gives you the realism you need - whether on top or at the bottom of your broadcast, it is a good match if you want to do a traditional broadcast without flat layouts and scorebugs

Scoreboard Stats #1

Scoreboard Stats #1 helps you to display the most important statistics between inning or at the end of your game. Choose between Runs, Hits, Errors and LOB.

Scoreboard Stats #2

Scoreboard Stats #2 is a new and fresh design for showing statistics data like Runs, Hits, Errors and LOB. Gaps between elements give you a great transparency for your stream. All colors can be adjusted to match the style of your production.



Custom Scoreboards
You can create your own custom scoreboard layouts and load it into your Live Score software.
If you're using the Standard Edition of Live Score you can load the layout, but it will show that you're using a demo version when going live. Customers with a Professional Edition can use custom scoreboards without limitations.
Please use the Scoreboard Layout Guidelines for further information about available controls, styles and elements.



Remote Controls

Our Remote Controls allow you to change all available elements from your iPad and/or iPhone.
The iPad version contains a scoreboard on the top where you can see all of your data.
The offense team is underlined to help you avoiding accidents with TOP and BOTTOM inning changes.

The iPhone version uses a Panorama View that can either be swiped or changed with the tab control on top of the screen. Each view of the panorama covers a specific topic, so you have everything on your screen when you're controlling specific parts of your scoreboard.




Built-In Controls

The built-in sport controls are the perfect companion if you don't have an iOS device, or if just want to have a secure control layout, that is not bound to a local network. This type of control triggers all actions directly within your application and makes sure that no wireless interference prevent you from using your scoreboard.
Built-In controls can be operated alone or in combination with your iOS Remote Controls.
