ESPN pay-per-view has chosen VDS GameTrak Boards suite for its eight pay-per-view channels, FullCourt for NCAA Basketball and GamePlan for NCAA Football.

ESPN pay-per-view subscribers can now watch updated scores, schedules and standings on all eight ESPN pay-per-view channels when no games are being broadcast. The Scoreboard section of each displays:

  • Game schedules and match-ups for the top 25 games or selected games by conference with team name, team ranking and game time.
  • Game scores showing team name and ranking, time remaining, quarter, score, winning team highlight and team possession indicator.
  • The top 25 team rankings, conference team standings, and conference team leaders.
  • ESPN promos, which are entered by ESPN personnel as needed.

At the bottom of each channel, there is a GameTrak Ticker to provide additional news and information to ESPN Pay-per-view subscribers at certain time intervals when the standard ESPN ticker is not overlaid.

The GameTrak Boards system contains a VDS graphics engine using a Chyron Lantern64 digital video I/O card for the generation of graphics. A SportsTicker premium data feed and the VDS GameTrak authoring application provide data and content for the channel.
