Recently, we showcased just some of the many ways that ScoreVision multimedia scoreboards can be customized beyond just changing a mascot or a color. This week, we’re excited to introduce you to one of the newest members of the ScoreVision family, Dublin High School!
Dublin High School is a public high school in Dublin, CA and home to the Dublin Gaels. The administration at Dublin was searching not only for the perfect scoreboard upgrade, but also for a way to showcase the school’s robust video production program. Watch our video to hear their story!
Dublin’s video production program is relatively new, but it is growing quickly.
“When I took over about 4 years ago, there were only about two video production classes offered, so my first year here I had about 42 kids total. Now we’re above 185 students, so it’s been pretty exciting,” says Michael D’Ambrosio, video production instructor and football coach. “The ScoreVision scoreboard can be used simply as a scoreboard, or it can really be used as a multimedia tool. Our goal is to use it both ways and we’re super excited.”
The school looks forward to utilizing their new ScoreVision multimedia scoreboard system to connect students and curriculums all across the school.
“We have huge aspirations for what the scoreboard is going to be used for. I think the scoreboard can be used in a variety of ways that we don’t even know yet,” said D’Ambrosio. For now, Dublin plans to use the multimedia scoreboards to showcase hype videos, use it for PE classes and guest speakers, allow athletic teams to watch highlights or break down game footage, and create content for curriculum that can be used during classes.
Other schools in the community are starting to take notice of Dublin’s new multimedia scoreboard system too.
“When the other team walks in, there’s an immediate ‘wow’ factor,” says Tom Costello, PE instructor and boys basketball coach. “I think it definitely brings in a home court advantage for our team.”
Peter Scarpelli, athletic director at Dublin High School, is also excited about the fundraising potential with their new multimedia scoreboard system.
“Most high schools are running into that revenue problem. Where are the funds going to come from to continue to fund these sports, to fund field rental space, officials, everything? So this is that silent or multiple stream of income that helps athletics and helps us continue to reach our goals in all areas - to support the teams, the athletes, and the facilities,” said Scarpelli. “The school district does a lot, but with an ever-growing district, this was a great opportunity for us to help ourselves.”
We’re excited to see all the exciting things Dublin High accomplishes with their new ScoreVision system, and we know the school is too.
“We’re certainly excited to see what takes place. I think it will be groundbreaking, I think it will set the bar for others to want to reach for.”
