Tournament e-Boards are used at Chess Olympiads, World Chess Championships and all major chess tournaments around the world to show the games live as they happen. Also many smaller tournaments use the boards to show games live on their tournament website.
Showing live games attracts more visitors to your website and makes it easier to find sponsors.
Free DGT LiveChess software is used to manage the e-Boards and arrange the live transmission of games in real time via the internet or on screens at the playing venue.
Serial Tournament e-Boards are standard supplied in a custom made e-Board Storage Bag.
The difference between USB-, and Bluetooth e-Boards and DGT Serial Tournament e-Boards, is that the tournament boards can be connected together in large quantities in a serial network for a tournament set-up. They connect to the computer through cables or by using the wireless DGT Caïssa System.
When using cable connections, strings of serial e-Boards are connected to the serial port of the computer (or to a USB port using the Serial-to-USB Converter Cable that is included with the connection materials). Contrary to USB- and Bluetooth boards the serial board are not meant for individual use.
The new and innovative DGT LiveChess software was released in September 2011. It replaced the ToMA tournament manager software. The ToMa software is no longer available or supported. Using LiveChess is completely free of charge.
LiveChess has a much enhanced and user friendly interface. Broadcasting live chess games via the internet or at the tournament venue has never been so easy and straightforward.
A completely renewed LiveChess2 with many great new features and improvements will become available in 2016.
The DGT Caïssa System connects serial tournament e-Boards to the computer via a wireless system.
Its practical ease of use very much simplifies setting up e-Boards at chess tournaments to arrange live broadcasting of games and tournament presentation.
The system consists of three different modules: board modules, a collector module and booster modules.
This connection set is required to connect the first of every 12 serial tournament e-Boards. It contains a power supply (suitable for 12 boards), a board-to-bus cable, a PC-to-bus cable, 5m patch cable, 20m patch cable and 4 connection boxes. A serial-to-USB converter is also included in this set.
To connect each of the next 11 serial e-Boards a connection set is required that consists of a board-to-bus cable, 5 m patch cable and a connection box.
For the 13th board, 25th board etc. again product 10657 is required.
The power adapter should not be replaced by a universal adapter. The e-Boards will be damaged beyond repair when the wrong polarity of the voltage is applied.
