Support & Frequently Asked Questions

What is a ScoreLink?2020-11-13T00:06:02+00:00

A ScoreLink is a small device created by Sportzcast which connects to your existing scoreboard system and enables network distribution of your data in real-time for integration uses such as NCAA LiveStats.

What is the cost?2021-07-08T01:33:55+00:00

In the interest of collecting the most accurate data in the easiest way possible, NCAA LiveStats is providing this initial round of ScoreLink devices at no cost to interested schools. These devices will be limited to use only with NCAA LiveStats for free, however you may contact Sportzcast to upgrade to an annual SportzSuite license if you wish to use your ScoreLink for other Sportzcast integrations such as broadcast graphic overlays. 

Current Sportzcast SportzSuite subscribers & annual data license holders can utilize the NCAA LiveStats integration at no additional cost. This new feature is now included in SportzSuite.

How can I connect my ScoreLink device?2021-07-08T01:36:27+00:00

The ScoreLink needs to be connected to the venue scoreboard system via supplied scoreboard interface cable to either: (1) an output jack on the venue scoreboard controller, or (2) an available scoreboard distribution rack interface (these are typically present in the venue networking or equipment room). The device also needs to be connected via Ethernet cable to the same network as the PC running NCAA LiveStats. For more information & complete installation guide, visit our downloads section by clicking here.

Note: Sportzcast strongly recommends a permanent installation for the ScoreLink in the venue. This removes the requirement to connect the device prior to each game.

Please contact Sportzcast Support for any questions regarding installation at 321-888-3800 or via email at support@sportzcast.net

What sports does the NCAA LiveStats integration work for?2021-07-08T01:38:31+00:00

Currently, the Sportzcast integration is available for NCAA LiveStats for Basketball, Football & Ice Hockey. Over time, we plan to expand the program to all timed sports.

Do I need a new version of NCAA LiveStats?2021-07-08T01:39:40+00:00

Yes. If you are a previous user of NCAA LiveStats, please check with the NCAA LiveStats team to ensure that you have the most up to date version before the season.

Can I still manually adjust the clock in NCAA LiveStats, or take back control of the clock?2020-11-13T01:14:04+00:00

Yes. The NCAA LiveStats user can still adjust the clock as necessary to enter plays or make edits. If there is a problem, the user can disconnect the ScoreLink device and resume manual control of the clock at any time.

If I already have a Sportzcast Scorebot or ScoreLink can I use it for NCAA LiveStats?2021-07-08T01:44:03+00:00

Yes, as long as the PC you are running NCAA LiveStats is connected to the internet, or your Sportzcast device is connected to the Sportzcast cloud servers via the internet.

Sportzcast strongly recommends permanently installing your device in the venue.

Can I use a ScoreLink (or Scorebot) simultaneously for NCAA LiveStats & my other existing uses?2020-11-13T20:48:43+00:00

Yes. If you are currently utilizing a Sportzcast device in internet/cloud-connect mode for applications other than NCAA LiveStats, you can continue to use the device for other integrations simultaneously.

I provided my information using the Google form, when should I expect to receive the device?2021-07-08T01:42:46+00:00

Sportzcast is working to distribute ScoreLinks prior to the 2021 seasons. If you have already submitted your request, we’ll reach out individually a week prior to shipment to confirm your information and provide shipping information.

If you wish to purchase a Sportzcast SportzSuite license now for immediate use, please contact Sportzcast’s sales team at 321-888-3800 or at sales@sportzcast.net
