Second-screen scoreboard output

As there are hundreds of scoreboard solutions out there CricHQ decided on an alternative innovation rather than trying to integrate with all current options. The CricHQ iOS application has a built in scoreboard output function that is simple to use.

 
There are two options when it comes to using this feature and both will provide instant scoreboard updates as you score. What you need;
 
Wireless Solution:
1. Apple TV/ Mac Laptop
2. A strong wifi connection
3. Your iOS device with CricHQ
 
To get going with the wireless solution;
      a) Connect your iOS device to your wifi network
      b) Connect Apple TV to the same wifi network
      (if you only have a Mac Laptop you can connect this to your wifi network and use the "AirServer" product in place of Apple TV:http://www.airserver.com/ )
      c) Connect your iOS device to the Apple TV or Mac laptop via Airplay. To do this swipe up from the bottom of the device, an option for 'Airplay' will appear. Click this and choose the Apple TV or Mac laptop from the devices listed, turn on mirroring.
      (For more info on using airplay see here:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4437 )
      d) Your device will now appear on the screen for your Apple TV or Mac Laptop. As soon as you start scoring your match on CricHQ the scoreboard screen will display. If it does not check the settings options in the scoring screen and make sure "Scoreboard Output" is switched on.
 
 
Wired Solution:
1. A secondary screen(computer screen or TV screen)
2. Your iOS device with CricHQ
3. An apple adapter and suitable cable to connect you iOS device to your screen
 
To get going with the wired solution;
      a) Connect your iOS device to your TV via the adapter and cable
      b) Your device will now appear on the second screen. As soon as you start scoring your match on CricHQ the scoreboard screen will display. If it does not check the settings options in the scoring screen and make sure "Scoreboard Output" is switched on.
 
 
The result is an easy to read scoreboard that can expand to be as big as an 80 inch TV, or as small as a 13 inch computer monitor. You can even use this to output on modern LED scoreboard solutions.
