  Scarborough Cricket Club  

Out of date technology? Now that’s NOT cricket.

15 May 2008

There was no young rookie keeping score in the sweltering Perth heat at Scarborough Cricket Club this summer. Instead the club has purchased a state-of-the art scoreboard technology from Computronics on a versatile custom-built trailer, which is now available for lease.

The scoreboard, which uses Computronics’ Variable Message Sign (VMS) technology, is controlledby a laptop with wireless bluetooth technology. It is useful for displaying player names, game statistics, scores, sponsorship messages and upcoming club events. It also has the capability to display time and temperature readings.

Computronics Chief Executive Freeman Wyllie said the club was most impressed with the technology.

“VMS is much more than a scoreboard, and Scarborough Cricket Club has made the most of its versatility by having the display installed on a custom-built trailer to give it an all-year-round purpose,” Wyllie said.

“The club has been so impressed with the VMS technology it has placed an order for a Computronics LED sign to display upcoming events inside the club house.”

The club has extended the use of its VMS outside the cricket season by installing it on a custom built trailer to lease to club members wanting to advertise their local businesses to gradually recoup the cost of the sign.

The trailer uses hydraulic bonnets (gas struts) to jack up the 150kg VMS sign, and the hinged custom support frame folds the sign away neatly for easy transport.

The installation came complete with full local service and support.
