Overview of how D5 Software's The Paperless Tourney works
A view of your Gym
The master computer is the hub for all communications regarding the tournament. All mat computers forward their results in real time allowing the master to compile all statistics and correctly call the matches to the mats on time. It also keeps the boutboards updated. While all of this is happening the master computer is streaming data to the Web interface so fans can keep up with the results within seconds of them actually occurring at the tournament. The main advantage of this setup is that the internet is kept separate from the tournament local network. So if the internet goes down the tournament always stays up and running.
