No. SST does not require a special computer. We do suggest using a laptop computer because of the battery backup. Also, it is recommended that the computer have a dual core, 64 bit processor running Windows 10 or Windows 11. The other nice feature would be touch screen but it is not necessary.
No. The computer’s clock is not accurate enough. We have a highly accurate timing chip that is located in the timing box or cable.
What if I am using a meet management software other than Hy-Tek’s Meet Manager or TeamUnify’s TouchPad?
SST also includes an interface that emulates the CTS console serial communications. Please refer to “Appendix A” of the SST manual.
The Mobile Scoreboard gives your spectators the ability to have a scoreboard on their mobile device without having to download an app or have internet access. This is useful if you do not have a scoreboard or if you have limited deck space and people outside of the pool area want to keep track of what is going on.
Here are some screen shots:
SST can communicate with just about any Meet Management software. For Hy-Tek’s Meet Manager and TeamUnify’s TouchPad, SST communicates via the generic file sharing option. For other meet management software you can communicate with SST using the same serial interface that is used to connect with the CTS5 or 6 console.
