Judo scoreboard: Follow the competition in real time
What makes a professional judo scoreboard?
It is important to have a sufficiently large number of digits so that the viewer can easily read the display from a long distance. A scoreboard with LCD backlighting is also very pleasant and easy to read.
Basically, a distinction is made between fixed, mains operated and portable judo scoreboards with battery operation. The advantage of portable scoreboards is that they are network-independent and therefore suitable for mobile use. An accumulator/ battery acts as the electricity supplier, which can be recharged with a battery charger for further use. Most portable scoreboards come with a transport case, a battery charger, operating instructions and a foldable trolley.
The judo scoreboard as a high-tech device
A judo scoreboard is an electronic high-tech device and can be controlled and programmed via a control panel. This is located on the back of the scoreboard and can be folded up for transport. A good judo scoreboard, such as the CJF Judo scoreboard from Stramatel, allows at least the following displays:
- Fight time
- Penalty points
A judo scoreboard should also have a horn for acoustic signals, such as the end of the fight time. Additional information such as the names of the fighters, a country code, the weight class or the number of penalties (Shido) can appear. Official competition displays must be equipped according to the current rules of the IJF.
