Upgrade to Sports Coverage

Posted on: January 25th, 2018 by Robert Ingraham

Viewers of local sports on WSCS have long wished for the game clock to be included in the on-screen score graphics.  Thanks to recently acquired technology, that wish has been granted.

Game clock, score and other information is sent automatically update the graphics.

“Until now, when we would cover a game, we had someone manually changing the score in the graphics software” said Scott Mealiff, WSCS Program Director. “For fast faced sports like basketball we needed a person dedicated to changing the score.”  While this method kept viewers aware of the score during the game, there wasn’t a good way to show how much time was left.  The commentators would have to mention the time on the scoreboard as part of calling the game.

After a sucessful trial, the station decided to purchase a device call a ScoreBot.  “Interfacing a scoreboard with TV graphics is not a new concept. The national networks have been doing it for some time. The ScoreBot allows us to do it more cost effectivly than was previously possiable. One device now works with different scoreboard controllers and different sports at different venues. We’re excited to provide this enhancement to our viewrs.” Mealiff said.

WSCS Sports StackedWSCS TV Sports Delivers Two Nights of Double Features

WSCS TV Sports is offering its viewers a Holiday gift of two nights of double features of sports programming by producer Mike Martin. All shows run about 30 minutes.

The first night’s double feature will have a basketball flavor. The Armory Show features former Sheboygan Press Sports Editors Dwight Pelkin and Pete Barth and retired basketball coaches John Schumann and Tom Desotell talking about the Armory and its history. The show has excellent footage of the Armory taken by WSCS cameraman Brian Andrews. Live game footage is also included.

Sheboygan North Basketball: The Tom Desotell Years is an award winning show that features Tom Desotell along with former players, coaches and support staff from both North and South high. The program takes the viewer through Desotell’s first year at North to the 2011 season. Also featured in the show is a segment on the 1986 state championship team.

The second night’s double feature is about two of Sheboygan’s best-known sports personalities Denny Moyer and Roy Pirrung.

Denny Moyer and the Sheboygan A’s was produced in 2013, the 50th year of the Sheboygan A’s. The show features Denny and Donna Moyer along with former players and club officers as they take the viewer from the earliest years to the present day Sheboygan A’s. Footage at the ballpark will the take the viewer to various parts of the park and includes live game footage.

I Run: The Roy Pirrung Story is about how Roy went from an overweight smoker to world class ultra-marathoner. Roy’s inspirational story includes comments by fellow runners and Roy himself.
