Trent Bridge benefits from SysDev expertise


Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club’s superb new replay screen and scoreboard is a truly impressive piece of technology that will benefit Trent Bridge Cricket Ground for many years to come. The project was conceived by the Club in 2008 shortly after the ground’s first replay screen was installed, such was the success of that original project. The announcement in 2011 that Nottinghamshire had been awarded a “Gold A” package of matches, including Ashes fixtures in 2013 and 2015, provided the boost that the project needed to swing into action.


Having been responsible for recommending, installing and maintaining the original screen, Arthur Jackson of SysDev Ltd. was appointed as Screen Consultant to Nottinghamshire CCC. SysDev developed an exacting and detailed pre-tender specification that was supplied to twenty carefully-chosen potential screen suppliers. Of those, 16 candidates were selected to provide pre-tender responses and, following expert analysis of the submissions, 8 suppliers participated in an extended on-site product comparison and, of those, 4 were invited to tender. SysDev participated in fact-finding visits to Stadia in Europe and USA before providing the Club with its final recommendations.


Following the choice of Mitsubishi Electric as the screen supplier, SysDev oversaw the planning and installation of the screen, ensuring a very high standard of accuracy and workmanship.


In parallel with all these activities, SysDev re-developed the TechEvent control hardware and software to enable it to control both screens simultaneously with video, graphical and data content. Very careful consideration was given to fault-tolerance in designing the control system’s topology in order to maintain the original system’s good reliability record.


SysDev products incorporated in the screen’s control system include:



Not only was the new screen fully functional as required for the first LV County Championship match of the 2013 season but it was also used for the early-season friendly matches, ahead of expectations. The screen has already helped present a One Day International and, of course, the first Investec Ashes Test Match of 2013, held at Trent Bridge.
