Ground-breaking, real-time scoring system signs on for 2016 Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, Vans Pool Party and the Monster Energy Cup
Malibu, CA and Portland, OR (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
ISX Scoring, the real-time scoring and stats system for fast-paced, action sports and live events, has expanded its scope of capabilities by adding turn-key, end-to-end solutions for all timed racing events, from scoring to graphics, with an unmatched foundation combining data into compelling storytelling.
Signed for the upcoming season, ISX will be on the job at the Rob Dyrdek-founded Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, Vans Pool Party, and the Monster Energy Cup.
ISX is the outgrowth of the combined vision of three unique, diverse individuals: Rob Dyrdek, MTV star/creator of Street League Skateboarding (SLS); Paul Taublieb, Emmy-winning filmmaker and X Games co-creator/producer; and David Paull, leading high-tech entrepreneur.
“We take data and make it come alive through engaging, world-class technology with award-winning story telling capabilities,” explained ISX creator and co-president, Emmy winning producer/director Paul Taublieb. “We’ve now added turn-key capabilities to handle timed racing events to our already unmatched, dial-based instant scoring system, with everything coming alive through dynamic, engaging television, webcast, and venue graphics.”
Added co-president David Paull who also heads partner company Dialsmith, “Through our robust data gathering, processing, and reporting technologies, ISX enables a unique and entertaining competition format. Every trick and run count, and scores are compiled and displayed in real-time, giving everyone—from the viewers to the competitors—instant access to the results of the competition as they unfold.”
SLS and ISX Continue Successful Seventh-Year Run
ISX has been ingrained as the scoring technology for SLS, driving the unique format since the League launched in 2010. ISX Scoring is back as SLS’s official scoring and stats partner for both the 2016 SLS Nike SB Pro Open and the SLS Nike SB World Tour.
Brian Atlas, President & COO at SLS said, “With its revolutionary, real-time scoring technology, ISX Scoring is an integral part of our success. The easy-to-follow format and instantly available results not only enable pros like Luan and Nyjah to strategize their run, but also provides engaging storytelling and brings the excitement of the traditional ‘buzzer beater’ suspense and action to both our live in-arena and at-home fan base.” The season kicks off with the SLS Nike SB Pro Open in Barcelona, Spain, on May 21 and May 22.

ISX Scoring Makes Splash at Vans Pool Party
For a third year running, ISX was the scoring and stats provider for the 2016 Vans Pool Party competition, which took place on May 14. The Vans Pool Party is truly a one-of-a-kind event bringing the past, present and future of pro skating together for an epic competition at the legendary Combi bowl at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, California.

Justin Regan, Head of Global Sports Marketing at Vans Skateboarding, added, “We're thrilled to have ISX back for the third year in a row, adding the excitement of live, instant scoring to the intense, non-stop action that goes down at the Vans Pool Party, bringing the intensity and energy to fans at the ‘Bowl,’ as well as our webcast audience watching online. This continues to be a great partnership for Vans, our participants and our fans.”
