Unisys Golf Scoring System
Unisys has been involved in golf scoring and TV graphic production
since 1980. It is the cornerstone of its entire sports program.
The NT-based Unisys Golf Scoring and Information System is
a full-featured, fast and extremely reliable system for the
collection and presentation of stroke-, match- and team-play
golf play tournament scoring information and is arguably the
best in the world.
Scores and other statistics are entered directly into wireless
electronic data entry devices at greenside or from the course
by radio and entered at a central site via keyboard. Scoring
and statistical data is presented throughout the tournament
venue on color PC workstations. Users can obtain their own
high-quality printed reports from workstation-attached laser
printers at any time during the tournament.
Near real-time scoring and statistical data can be viewed
throughout the global Internet. Content is automatically refreshed
on hundreds of Web pages immediately upon every score change.
On site, the system is used by a host of different users.
The press and media constantly require information in order
to file stories, and to provide to-the-second TV and radio
commentaries. At our major events, such as the U.S. Open and
the British Open, the international media requires this critical
information on a very timely basis. That is why Unisys provides
this data quickly, simply and accurately, all at the touch
of a button.
