On this page we will try to clear up the necessary requirements for using the scoreboard system. We will use the two scenarios with and without TaekoPlan software.

 


With TaekoPlan:

Competition Management Table:

  • Laptop or desktop computer with network interface
  • Network router or switch
  • TaekoPlan software
  • Printer
  • Barcode Scanner (optional)

Each Jurytable:

  • Laptop or desktop computer with network interface
  • At least one free USB port
  • Scoreboard software
  • External monitor connection to attach second screen. System must be able to show the 'Windows Extended desktop'

 


Without TaekoPlan:

Each Jurytable:


  • Laptop or desktop computer with network interface
  • At least one free USB port
  • Scoreboard software
  • External monitor connection to attach second screen. System must be able to show the 'Windows Extended desktop'


Using Network:

You may use either lan cable or wireless connect. Please note that wireless in a crowded sportshall can sometimes give unpredicted and unstable results. So advice is to use normal UTP-5 cable. All computers should be in the same range, for instance 192.168.1.xxx.

Software:

Scoreboard software, single license for 1 upto 4 courts.
For more than 4 courts you need a second license.

Hardware:

Per court one interface to attach a maximum of four corners. You need one interface, even if attaching only three corners. The interface is always equipped for all corners. An USB cable is included in the package. Drivers are included in the scoreboard software.

Requirements laptop/desktop:

The following requirements are the mimimum for the laptops or desktops to be used:

Pentium 4 mobile or Intel Celeron 1.4/1.6.
USB 2.0 support
Screen minimum resolution 1024x768
Option to attach external (second) monitor
Windows XP/Vista/7 compatible

Systems with minor specifications are not guaranteed to be working properly.

Important is also to run a minimum of other software on the computer. No virusscanners or autoprotect options (Norton antivirus) should be run.

The application is set to run at high priority to claim a maximum of possible processor time.
