Watchfire Signs Enhances Its Ignite Sports Software

Tournament scoring, advanced timing and other features now available.




Enhanced tablet scoring includes an intuitive interface for operators who prefer to score the game from the stands.

Watchfire Signs (Danville, IL) has announced new enhancements to Ignite Sports, the company’s scoring, entertainment, and editing software for Watchfire video scoreboards at high schools, colleges and sports complexes. According to a statement from the company, “Sports facilities hosting tournaments now can score up to four events simultaneously and display the matches on a single videoboard.”

Additional improvements to Ignite Sports include the following:

  • Enhanced tablet scoring with a new, intuitive interface, for operators who prefer to score the game from a seat in the stands.
  • Advance wrestling timing. In addition to a traditional wrestling scoreboard layout, teams can display timing for injury and recovery.
  • HD video support for high-resolution video, integrated design tools, such as rulers and snap-to guides and more new features are available.

“Simultaneous, multi-event scoring is an exciting development,” Kyle Dines, vice president of sports and indoor at Watchfire, is quoted in the statement. “Armed with a tablet, each scorer operates independently and all the results are displayed in different zones of the scoreboard. Schools and rec centers that host tournaments can benefit from community support, player visibility and revenue generation.”
