Project background / Contexte du projet
The TD place hosts many sporting events and will be opening in the Fall for in-person inside attendance to various events. They are looking for new and fresh content to engage and excite fans, focusing on the Ottawa 67s Scoreboard Show. The TD place has a visual display that can be used anytime during the event and can be controlled with software called XPression. 

DashBoard is a free and open platform from Ross Video for facility control and monitoring that enables users to quickly build unique, tailored Custom User Interfaces that make complex operations simple. Its ability to craft application specific solutions across this breadth of products is what makes DashBoard so special. The power of DashBoard is that it can be tailored to control a large array of devices using standard protocols supported on a PC – IP, Serial, OSC (Open Sound Control) etc. Equipment in the Lansdowne facilities already have DashBoard compatible equipment.

There are many different items in this project that will create a user interface for easy modification and combination of data with graphic design. You can choose one or multiple, however it is crucial that the operator has an intuitive understanding of the user interface and it is accessible and easy to use since they need to find specific functions during game play in a fraction of a second. All elements need to be easily configurable since the information changes every game.

  • Team setup
    Set logos for the Home and Away teams
    Set a primary graphic color for the Home and Away teams
    Set a secondary graphic color for the Home and Away teams

  • Goalie matchup: present graphics that incorporate live video of goalies on both teams, which include their name, goals against average and save percentage

  • Standing/stats: graphics that include variables for the following sports statistics
    Eastern and Western Conference Standings
    League Points, Goals, Assists and +/- Leaders (Top 5)
    League GAA and SV% (Top 5)

  • Full page sponsor elements
    Drop in 16:9 sponsor graphics
    Store 6-8 sponsors per game

  • Fan birthdays (amount changes depending on game)
    Birthday graphic containing an image and short birthday message which all play back to back with a set (configurable) duration

  • Three stars
    Must be able to change names last second
    Names revealed from third star to first star one at a time, at the end all three names on screen
    Need to be able to trigger when each name appears, so that the operator can follow along with the PA Announcer

  • Sponsor ‘bugs’: sponsors pay for a small logo in the top corner of the screen during a Penalty Kill and a Power Play
    Buttons to cue up “Sponsor Bugs”

  • Make noise/Crowd prompts
    Cue up either by random or specific Make Noise or Crowd Prompt animation graphics
    Have anywhere from 15 to an unlimited number of crowd prompt videos/animations
