Connect (Legacy) Scoreboard Tool data to a graphic layer

Some Titler Live products feature in-app scoreboard controllers for baseball, basketball, football, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and volleyball. You can connect a controller to a graphic and control the scoreboard data from within Titler Live or an Internet browser. Complete the steps in this article to connect your design to a scoreboard.

Note: Scoreboard controllers are not available in Titler Live Present.

  1. In Titler Live's playout interface, open a project (if a project isn't already open) and select a graphic in the playlist.

    Tip: Want to create a new graphic? Open the Graphics Library panel and drag a design from the library to your channel. You may also select File > New > Graphic to add an empty graphic template to your channel. 

  2. Choose Select a data source > Sports > Scoreboard Tool and select a sport to add the Scoreboard Tool input to the graphic.

    The Scoreboard Tool input appears as a tab in the Layer Properties panel and in the playlist for that graphic.TL5_Scoreboard_Tool_3.png

  3. Click the Link Data button in the Preview panel to view the Scoreboard Tool data controller and variables. 
  4. Click and drag a Scoreboard Tool variable onto a design element in your graphic. Repeat this step for each variable you want to include in your graphic.

    Tip: To disconnect a variable from an object in your graphic, right-click a variable in the Preview panel and choose Disconnect variable.


  5. Use the Scoreboard Controller in the Scoreboard Tool panel to drive variables in your scoreboard graphic.


Tip: To control the scoreboard from your Internet browser instead of from Titler Live's Scoreboard Tool panel, click the Open in Browser button in the Scoreboard Tool panel.

  1. Editing Graphic and open in the Designer
  2. Select each clock layer
  3. Go to the Properties panel > Motion and Data > Variable Settings
