One of my most memorable training memories happened when supporting a college basketball game at a new venue.
Before the event, the display operators and I followed a thorough pregame check. We checked the control systems and tested the stat feeds to be sure everything would run smooth for the first big basketball game at this location.
The game started out normally, but after few minutes, the clock feed unexpectedly went blank on all the displays. The officials stopped the game until we could resolve the issue. The scorekeeper and I began by tracing the connection out of the All Sport into the junction box. We found the source of the issue at the junction box. The main clock output going into the junction box had become disconnected. Once we reconnected the cable, the signal returned, and we were able to continue the game as normal.
This situation was an important reminder for the scorekeeper and others involved in the game production to understand All Sport basics. To help you be ready for your next game, the training group has recently published a video online to help you get started with the All Sport 5000.
This video outlines the All Sport 5000 console, its connections, sport inserts, and menu and timing functions that are common across all sports codes.
