Takedown Makes the Big Time: Stanford v. Northwestern University Dual Meet

Fun time yesterday at Stanford University's Burnham Pavillion watching Stanford v. Northwestern dual meet.  Stanford uses Takedown to score their matches and generate performance statistics.  Yesterday, they kept their expensive pedestal scoreboard in the closet and instead used Takedown's inexpensive and automatically generated scoreboard on their 90" wall-mounted flat panel display.

Here it is in action.  With :49 left in the first period, no score in the 184 pound match.

Another match, first period with 2:09 to go, NWU up 2-0 with :38 of riding time advantage.  NWU is on top ( as indicated by the chevron under the NWU score).

And, here's the Stanford wrestling manager using Takedown. See the green cable?  That's the full extent of the setup -- run an HDMI cable from your iPad to your flat panel display.  Stanford's display is huge, but the setup is the same no matter how large (or small) your panel.   Also, instead of having one person run the scoreboard and another person doing the scoring, only a single person is required since the scoreboard content is automatically generated by Takedown.

Stanford also used Takedown to stream the action to their 6,000+ Twitter fans:

The outcome for the Cardinal wasn't great (see results on Northwestern Wrestling website), but Takedown had an outstanding debut on the big stage.

What about your program?  If Takedown works for two premiere Division I NCAA wrestling programs, think it'll work for your high school or middle school program?

Takedown Scoreboard -- Bigger is Better at Stanford

Takedown's Scoreboard can be displayed on on any digital flat panel screen.  One of our customers is using Takedown's Scoreboard on their gym's wall-mounted 90" flat panel. Thought you'd be interested in what that looks like:

Wow.  Go big or go home, I guess.  Of course, if you don't have $20,000 laying around, Takedown's Scoreboard will work on a 22" $135 flat panel just as well:

In Action

$37 for a digital scoreboard that updates automatically from Takedown.   Not priceless, but how many pancake breakfasts and car washes to pay for this:

Last week we attended a tournament that was using five of these special purpose table scoreboards, each one $600 for a total investment of $3,000.   We suggested to the tournament director that his school could sell these devices for ~$400 each, deploy a Takedown-based scoreboard as shown above and re-invest about $1,500-2,000 back into his school's wrestling program.  He was interested.

All coaches want to get the most value possible for their hard-earned program funds.  Using a digital scoreboard driven by Takedown can help you save a lot of money.
