CrossMgr: New Announcer's Screen

Post date: Nov 12, 2017 4:44:39 PM

CrossMgr now supports a screen specifically designed for race announcers.

This screen is available in a web page ("Web/Index Page") and is real-time updated from current race information (using web sockets).

It is also available as a screen in CrossMgr itself.

The Announcer screen specifically addresses the needs of a race announcer by showing:

  • Current and Expected race positions by lap (expected positions are shown greyed-out).

  • Time gaps for all competitors

  • Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for all competitors. ETA is color-coded in the last 15 seconds (dark-to-light).

  • One-click switch between categories for multi-category races.

  • ETA for all category leaders is always shown - even if that Category is not currently shown. ETA is color-coded in the last 15 seconds (dark-to-light)

  • Color-coded chase groups with composition.

This gives announcers full knowledge of the current race results as well as what is expected in the next lap/

Give it a try in the CrossMgr simulation. Do a "Tools/Simulation" and start a mass-start race. Then do "Web/Index Page...". After the page opens in your browser, select the "Browser" at the top..

Available in CrossMgr 2.10.49.
