Available Scoreboards

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

  • Scoreboard #1

    Scoreboard 1 is a simple and glossy modern scoreboard layout. The scoreboard is split into 3 sections for scores, quarter and time, line of scrimmage, possession display and downs and yards. Timeouts are displays as shapes below the scores. A big penalty flag overlay will be shown instead of quarters and time if enabled.
  • Scoreboard #2

    This scoreboard is a more powerful one. It's made for a great center alignment in your broadcast. Colors are integrated with thin lines around the shapes of the layout. The elements are extended with a Main Image in the middle and 2 images for both teams. A penalty flag overlay will be shown instead of downs & yards if enabled. Team images have a basic size of 27 x 25. The main image is 60 x 45.
  • Scoreboard #3

    Scoreboard 3 is a new flat scoreboard layout. It has displays for quarter, time, scores, line of scrimmage, possession, timeouts and downs & yards. A big penalty flag overlay will be shown instead of quarters and time if enabled. It is perfect if you need a long and thin scoreboard that fits smoothly without disturbing the main view. Team images have a basic size of 50 x 38.
  • Scoreboard #4

    Scoreboard 4 is a great modern TV sports scoreboard. It has all necessary elements that can be shown in the layout. The scoreboard can be perfectly integrated on top or bottom of your screen. It can be used as a wide but also smaller layout by toggling the optional Downs & Yards and Line of Scrimmage elements. The Main Image has a basic size of 108 x 40.
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 in the top left corner where you can see all of your data.

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.
