Touch Score
Nothing here!

Touch Score - a truly revolutionary scoring upgrade for legacy systems!

Touch Score 3

Why is Touch Score so different from other systems ?

  • Upgrade one pair at a time. In these tough economic times, throwing $100,000’s into a new scoring system every few years is no longer an option. With Touch Score you can replace just one or more pairs of scoring, thereby freeing up parts to use as spares for the rest of the center.  And with Touch Desk, you can seamlessly manage both the old and the new scoring with the one management system! Divide your center into “premium” and “standard” lanes, and upgrade more pairs only as funds become available.
  • Use standard computers. Touch Score is a software solution that uses standard Windows computers on the lanes. As long as Windows computers are available, you will never be told your scoring computers are obsolete, or cannot be cheaply repaired or replaced. Some companies charge more than 3 times the cost of a new PC just to repair one of their proprietary ones! Even our new touch screen bowler console is just a common Windows tablet.
  • Use standard TVs. Touch Score connects directly to standard flat screens without any converters, and auto scales the scoring grid to whatever resolution the flat screen can handle, including full HD and 4K. No need for endless expensive scoring upgrades as TV technology keeps improving.
  • Keep existing consoles, cameras and machine interface or replace with new. To further reduce costs, you can often keep the existing bowler consoles, cameras and machine interface equipment. These items are normally very reliable, and easily repaired, and are therefore not worth replacing. We can however offer replacements or upgrades in most cases. With just our new bowler terminal, everything the bowler sees can be new.
  • Total Cost of Ownership. The cost of a scoring system is more than just the sticker price. Before committing to any system, check what the maintenance and repair costs are too. Otherwise this could be a real shock the first time an electrical storm or surge event hits. Another important factor is the life of the system and its features. Many features available today may have a high “wow” factor, but this will fade very quickly as technology moves on and therefore may not be worth the premium price. Good reliable scoring with high quality scoring grids never goes out of fashion.

Why replace at all?

    Many centers may be happy with their legacy scoring, and may not see the need to update at all. However the lane computers in many of these systems are becoming increasingly difficult to repair and maintain. Also, they generally have very low resolution and poor quality displays which look very dated on the new flat screens. Touch Score is full HD (and higher) resolution, and supports both graphics and digital signage at full HD (and higher) resolution.

    Touch Score also supports many new features that may not be available on your legacy scoring, such as multiple grid types, 8 players per lane, auto arrow advance, league recaps, integrated digital signage and more....

    Even if you keep your legacy scoring and just install Touch Desk, it is reassuring to know that upgraded scoring is ready when you are. And the best news of all.... the price!

The new touch screen bowler terminal provides a lower score grid display with an interactive user interface. This allows the overheads to be used for TV or custom video for sporting events or music videos. The overheads can even be omitted completely for an even more economical solution. You can even order food & beverages at the lane!

The lower touch screen can also display a virtual keypad similar to below if preferred.

Lighting Control

Thanks to rising energy costs, falling LED prices, and government subsidies (in some areas), its a great time to upgrade to LED lighting throughout your center. LED lighting is available in RGB models with full colour control, and even with UV lighting built in. Programmable LED lighting can have a HUGE impact on the appearance of your center, and on the whole bowling experience.

Touch Score uses a small controller attached to each lane computer to control the lighting on that lane pair using the industry standard DMX512 protocol. Any lighting fixtures that use this protocol can be controlled by Touch Score.

  • Controls overhead lighting, pin deck lighting, capping lighting and other lighting areas on each lane.
  • Ambient lighting can be programmed to automatically change based on the lane state (checked in/out, machines on/off etc), time of day, the selected bowling style and even the selected theme.
  • Runs light shows with the on-screen exciters for strikes, spares, etc.
  • Lighting can be synced with the on-screen graphics...the lighting matches the exciters and background images selected.
  • Ambient lighting can be animated, not just a static display.
  • Each bowler can choose their own “theme” which changes the lighting as well as the on screen appearance when they are up to bowl.
  • The lighting controllers on each lane pair can be connected to a central lighting desk (third party) for whole of house light shows and integration with non-bowling areas of the center. Each lane can then override the central light show to display exciters as events occur.
  • Touch Desk includes the Light Show Creator program to create customized light shows for exciters and backgrounds. For best results we recommend custom light shows be created alongside your center’s custom graphics.
