Abstract

The invention relates to a display device (100) for swimming competitions, comprising display means (1011-1013, 1021-1023, 1031-1033, 1041-1043, 1051-1053, 1061-1063, 1071-1073, 1081-1083) for the instant display of ranking information such that each spectator in the competition area can consult said ranking information while keeping their eyes fixed on the finish line (2, 2',2").

Description

Device donate ichage aff born louse r ranking

swimming competition

Technical area

The invention relates to the display of data during a sports competition, especially the instant display of information on timed data during a swimming race.

State of the art

In the context of sports competitions, are often given the opportunity to witness this on site to view some information relevant to the game, like the score of a match, the elapsed time or the remaining time to play etc. on large display panels at the stadium where the competition takes place. For online races timed such as athletics or swimming races, timing devices are often connected to such giant screens for displaying the time of different competitors and their ranking. The disadvantage of such panels used in such events is that it does not allow the audience to focus on both the race and the information he wishes to acquire in real time.

To see some timed data, such as the best time of a race, or the time taken in the final round for the middle distance races, smaller panels are sometimes arranged at the line arrival of athletic races; they are however not used to simultaneously display ranking information because of their small size, which is required not to impede the view of competitors and spectators placed in front of the opposite line. Moreover, it is not visible to viewers located in front of the finish line, but not by all viewers, such as those located in front of the opposite line.

This makes it difficult for a viewer to immediately know the final standings of a race without having to turn their eyes to a large billboard, which is cumbersome and counterintuitive for him because he can not at this point follow competitors eyes.

For viewers, immediate and intuitive reading problem of the classification of a race was solved by keying system images related to timing systems, such as in swimming races, why candidates example on the catwalk are immediately indicated by a flag corresponding to the country of the competitor and a number corresponding to its classification in their respective lanes. This type of solution can not however be used on the site of the competition to improve the visual comfort of the spectators, since it requires one hand complex image processing tools developed specifically for television, and calls for Furthermore each viewer still consult a screen on which are displayed the images with overlay information deduced from the timing; gold this screen should therefore be large enough to clearly display images embedded for all spectators, and it might as well not be on the same stage where the competition takes place without preventing at least some viewers to correctly see the actual course of the race. We therefore end up the same drawbacks raised as an athletics race, that it would be difficult for the spectators to immediately know the final standings of a race without at least some should turn their eyes to a great billboard.

In the more specific context of swimming, also known display devices for the competitors themselves, such as the display unit of the document US5812049, below the water level, and aims to inform the swimmers on different race settings as their travel time, the number of laps they have completed their instant grading etc. This type of display, however, is clearly not suitable for public display. Similarly, the document FR1588236 discloses a display device allowing swimmers to instantly view their rank in alphanumeric form with brands that light preferably in the starting blocks, while the same parameters are displayed simultaneously on a large table display for the public.

Also known document US71931 67 bright swimming pads to indicate the start of a race. The lights are however simply arranged so that the output signals are better visible for swimmers, and allow them to reduce their reaction time, but are again not for the public. This device allows the rest no differentiated display pad, and thus can not give any specific information on one or more individual swimmers.

There is therefore a need for display devices free from these limitations known to spectators at the scene where the competition takes place, especially for swimming competitions.

Brief Summary of the Invention

An object of the present invention to provide a display device that allows all viewers to easily consult a filing information more intuitively race and in near real time. In particular, especially in the context of the Olympic Games, world championships and Europe for example, there is a need for display devices allowing viewers can immediately see the competitors who are on the podium.

Another object of the present invention is to provide an alternative or complementary to the known display system of conventional display panels.

These aims are achieved thanks to a display device comprising the features of the main claim, and in particular the features of the characterizing part of the main claim, which specify a particular location of the display device at the starting blocks .

Particular embodiments of the invention are defined in the dependent claims.

One advantage of the display device of the present invention is that it can replace or complement to large screens for specific race classification data display, such as competitors on the podium . According to a particularly advantageous embodiment, the proposed display device is integrated with existing elements and thus generates no additional visual obstacle for spectators.

Another advantage of the proposed solution is that it allows all spectators on site can immediately see ordering information as the athletes cross the finish line - or an intermediate line - without changing the direction of their look as they follow the competition in real time.

The proposed solution is also particularly intuitive for viewers following eye the course of a race in a given direction, and consults the rating information in the continuity from crossing the finish line by competitors. It is the rest especially suitable for swimming races, during which competitors are at the finish line when they have finished their course, allowing each viewer to immediately view the ranking of a competitor that follows and simultaneously view his reaction.

According to a particularly advantageous embodiment, the ranking information is displayed in analog form in order to increase the intuitiveness especially when the information is related to medals won by the first three competitors.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF FIGURES

Figure 1 illustrates a top view of a display device known to the art used for swimming races.

Examples of implementation of the invention are advantageous indicated in the description and illustrated by the attached figures in which:

- Figure 2 illustrates a top view of a display device according to a preferred embodiment of the invention, intended for use in swimming races frame;

- Figure 3A illustrates a modified perspective view of a swimming pad for using a display device according to a preferred embodiment of the invention;

- Figure 3B illustrates a modified perspective view of a swimming pad for using a display device according to an alternative embodiment of the invention. Example (s) of embodiments of the invention

In the following, several advantageous embodiments of the invention will be described with different sports where spectators are likely to want to see real-time rating information, such as swimming, athletics, or still rowing races.

Figure 1 depicts a timing device and display commonly used in swimming races. The pool 1, which is the travel area is delimited by lateral walls 9, an inlet wall 2 and an opposite side wall 3. The various water lines 10 are provided with end line marks 8 and panels key 20 at the end of line on the wall 2 of arrival, respectively and other panels of key 30 at the end of line on the wall 3 opposite side. Each of the touch plates 20 is connected to a corresponding box 21, and the side key opposite plates 31 are connected to corresponding opposite side line boxes 31. Each line boxes 21 and inlet side 31 opposite side are connected to the timing device 5 via a first conduit 4, usually underground and / or hidden, while 5 timing system is connected by a second 6 leads to a large display panel 7 disposed opposite side of the finish wall 2 and pads sends 1 1 -18, where the number N defines the number of lanes, which is usually equal to 8 as shown in this figure. The timing system is also often typically connected to an auxiliary system 51 for communicating race information swimmers and / or viewers of visual or acoustic manner, such as through lights or audible alarms for start of the race.

The major drawback of the display system described is that it forces the viewer to turn their heads almost 180 degrees when the race ends, and he wants to then immediately able to view the final ranking of competitors real time. 2 shows a first display device 100 according to the invention, intended for swimming competitions and that overcomes these drawbacks, by providing means preferably complementary display to the display panel 7 (not shown in Figure 2) allowing all viewers to check filing information as it has its eyes on the finish line 2. it will be understood by reading the following, a similar provision of the device display proposed according to the invention could also have at the opposite wall 3 of the pool 1, for example for intermediate classifications display.

The display means 101 1 -1013, 1021 -1023, 1031 -1033, 1041 - 1043, 1051 -1053, 1061 -1063, 1071 -1073, 1081 -1083 used by the invention as part of swimming races, are adapted to the instantaneous display of ranking information as they are on one hand connected to the timekeeping system 5 - the instantaneous nature of the function of the measured time display - and on the other hand allow a differentiated display element by item, which displays different information about the various competitors, such as rating information, unlike for example the auxiliary system 51 that communicates the same information to all spectators and / or all competitors.

In the preferred embodiment illustrated by Figure 2, the means for the instantaneous display of ranking information is a first set of LEDs 101 1 -1013, 1021 -1023, 1031 -1033, 1041 -1043, 1051 -1053 , 1061 -1063, 1071 -1073, 1081 -1083 affixed to pads sends 1 1 -18. The set of LEDs is divided into a number N of sub-display sets 101 -108, respectively disposed on each stud Out 1 1 -18, and therefore equal to the number N of corridors 10 and Competitor, 8 in the example described. In this preferred embodiment, each subset of display 101 -108 is therefore located in the extension of the passage 10 of a competitor and thus allows more visually easily associate a classification information to a specific competitor, since each of the displayed information in a confined space that can easily identify. Moreover, according to the illustrated embodiment, the blocks 1 1 -18 which are located on each of the subsets corresponding display 101 -108 being separated by at least one meter from each other, it is also more intuitive for viewers to read the grading information without risk to swap or mix the information he reads, as they are far enough apart from each other to avoid confusion.

According to the preferred embodiment of Figure 2, each subset of display 101 -108 is connected to a line box 21 via connectors 21 1 -218 dedicated for a distance of at most a few meters given the distance between the different line boxes 21 and January 1 -18 studs on which are located the different subsets display 101 -108. Therefore, the wiring requirements are minimized, and even more so that the second conduit 6 connecting the timing box 5 in the first display device 100 is identical to the first conduit 4 connecting the box 21 to the lines timing box 5. Alternatively, it is also possible connections by January 21 -218 dedicated wireless technology, such as type WiFi or UWB, to further minimize the need for wiring and overall footprint the display system to integrate with an existing pool structure.

Each subset of display 101 -108 includes a number of display elements which is a multiple of the number of possible classifications M displayed by the first display device 100. In the example shown, M is equal to 3, because the device is designed to display only the first three of the race. According to Figure 2, the competitor of the water line number 3 has won the race, which is displayed by the pair of LEDs 1031 of the subset 103 of both sides of the stud 13; competitor competitor of the water line number 2 finished second in the race, which is displayed by the pairs of respectively 1021 and 1022 LEDs subset 102 of each side of the pad 12, and finally the competitor number waterline 5 finished 3rd in the race, which is displayed by couples LEDs 1051, 1052 and 1053 of the subset 105 of each side of the pad 15. the interest of displaying the classification by more than one LED, and in particular the two illustrated LEDs on either side of each pad, is able to display separately in at least two different directions D1, D2, such as those corresponding to grandstand located on either side of the pool 1, so that the display is isotropic to all forums of the enclosure. The redundancy factor R, indicated at 8 th display subset but which applies to each of the display elements, is thus equal to 2 according to the described embodiment; However one might imagine that this number can be increased to 4 - with for example a diode on all 4 sides of each block, so that the display is as effective against the 4 edges of the pool, and so improve visual comfort all spectators placed on parallel platforms in these edges.

Although according to the proposed embodiment, the three display elements 101 1 -1013, 1021 -1023, 1031 -1033, 1041 -1043, 1051 -1053, 1061 -1063, 1071 -1073, 1081 -1083 each sub display subassembly 101 -108 used to display Users 2 3 = 8 different combinations, or 8 digits and therefore potentially the ranking of 8 competitors of each line, it is more intuitive for the viewer to associate pairs of LEDs each subset to a classification value (i.e. a first pair of LEDs for the first, second LEDs torque for the 2nd and a third pair of LEDs for 3 rd) with preferably respectively LEDs always displayed first for the 2nd, and those of the first and second still lit for the third, as shown in Figure 2. This display combination allows a more intuitive reading of the number of diodes, or respectively of pairs of diodes lit corresponds to the cla ng displayed, resulting in a display length of the block so much greater that the ranking is high. So reading the order of finish is easier for spectators. According to a particularly advantageous embodiment, ranking the first is displayed on the nearest wall elements 2 Arrival (or the first 101 1 -1021 -1031 -1 041 -1051 -1061 -1071 - 1081 of each sub display subassembly) and those of the following then displayed in the direction of the stroke S, so that the viewer reads the collation sequences in the extension of tracking the course in the same direction S that he made up 'to the finish line.

According to the preferred embodiment described in Figure 2, the classification information is displayed in analog or symbolic form, not alphanumeric like traditional billboards, which display the names of the competitors with the corresponding letters and their classification by corresponding figures the display type proposed by the invention strengthens the intuitive reading of information for the viewer, who has thus need to read numeral or letter, but for example just to count a number of LEDs that light up on arrival and / or recognize a symbol, such as that of a coin, which can be displayed by each of the display elements. The LEDs represent here a simple example implementation to perform the preferential analog display of the invention, but other types of display, eg based on rotating components, could also be considered. Furthermore, according to the preferred embodiment described, the classification information that are displayed correspond to the first three of the race. Each of these competitors will therefore find on the podium and get a medal. According to a particularly advantageous embodiment, one can therefore imagine that classification information is displayed in different colors, as they provide information about the medals, which have themselves-distinct colors (gold, silver and bronze ). One can therefore imagine that, to show each competitor ranking information on the podium, various colors, for example corresponding to each coin can be used by the display elements. Such a display mode would still enhance the intuitive nature to the viewer, especially in combination with the view provided in Figure 2, so that each viewer can immediately visualize both the rank and associated medal to each of the competitors on the podium. In other words, for example ranking shown in Figure 2, the 1031 display elements could be displayed in a color symbolizing gold (eg yellow), 1021 and 1022 display elements may appear in a color symbolizing money (eg white or gray) and the display elements 1051, 1052 and 1053 may be displayed in a color symbolizing the bronze (eg brown or red).

According to a preferred embodiment above using different colors, the display elements - eg LEDs - can also use a specific color, such as green, to indicate when qualifying races for which no medal n ' is awarded, skilled riders (wildcard to time, decided later after all the races). The fact of using a specific color to indicate the classification of certain competitors can be combined or not displaying rating information dissociated by competitors - for example with a different number of LEDs that illuminates according to the actual rankings . Alternatively, the display device according to the invention shows only relevant information, namely the qualification of competitors, homogeneous information for all these competitors, such as the illumination of all LEDs studs of these competitors in a given color in the qualifying races.

One advantage of the described embodiment is that it allows a very easy integration into any existing pool structure through the use of some common elements, such as starting blocks 1 January -18, as carriers display. Moreover, the total display area required to display desired classification data is incomparably smaller than that usually employed by the usual billboards, because the spatial distribution of various subsets per line allows for better readability of data , without requiring a significant display area for each display and avoiding any confusion element. Thus when such a solution is used to display the total area required for the display can be less than or equal to one square meter, while using diodes from about 10 to 15 centimeters in diameter, readily visible from any Where a sports arena, even at a distance of a hundred meters with an appropriate transmission power. Indeed, the 2 * 3 * 8 = 48 display elements were then each a lower surface to 200cm 2, such that the overall display area is 0.96m 2. This area less than one square meter is smaller by a factor 50 to 100 compared to large display panels 7 which usually have a size of at least 5 meters by 10 meters, so that the size of the proposed display solution is incomparably smaller than those for traditional display solutions, and can thus be used either to replace panels, either in addition to these signs without causing visual discomfort for the audience.

Similarly, the volume required for the display is also very small compared to traditional solutions of display panels because each element is formed by a very small volume, preferably less than one cubic decimeter, so that the overall volume in this case is well below 0.1 cubic meter, or again incomparably less, by a factor of this time of the order of 100, as panels of 5 * 10 m with a thickness rarely under 30 centimeters, thus forming a total volume of more than one cubic meter. Therefore, this very low density footprint is particularly advantageous and allows easy integration into any existing display system without unduly obstructing the view of any spectator present in the galleries and without the need for expensive apparatus for moving and transporting large bulky and possibly fragile object, just as the panels.

3A is a detailed view of some studs equipped with display elements of the invention. The illustrated studs 12 and 13 correspond to those placed at the end of the second and third water lines 10, and generally located in the extension of the finish wall 2 relative to the direction of the stroke S (NB: When the distance to browse comprises an odd number of basin lengths to perform, departures are usually given for the pads arranged on the opposite side of the pool 1 along the wall 3). Each of the studs comprises the water line number to which it corresponds (the "2" and "3" embedded in each block) and is parallel to a display subassembly (referenced 102 and 103 respectively) on which are arranged three display elements or the pairs of diodes 1021, 1022 and 1023 for sub-display set corresponding to the 2nd line of water and the pairs of diodes 1031, 1032 and 1033 for the subset of display corresponding to the 3rd waterline. 3A, for each sub 102.103 display set only one of the diodes of each pair is visible; each of these diodes being provided for display in a given direction, such as direction D1 of FIG 2 to a previous main stand. The height H and the distance D with respect to the finish wall are substantially equal in this case, between 50 centimeters and 1 meter; However, the height H is identical for all the display elements so that the distance D varies as much as the spacing between each of the diodes, or about 20 to 30 centimeters.

3B is a view similar to that of Fig 3A an alternative embodiment of the invention, wherein each of the display elements 1021 -1023 and 1031 -1033 (as well as all other sub display assemblies 101 and 104-108, not shown in this figure) are formed by a LED strip. It is therefore this time the distance D with respect to the finish wall 2 which is equal for all display elements, but the height H which varies depending on the layout of each band to its respective pad. An advantage of this solution is that it allows a completely isotropic display when a circular band is used and therefore requires no display redundancy (R factor mentioned for the preferred embodiment in Figure 3A previous or 2 for the example illustrated, corresponding to the number of diodes included by each display element, each of the diodes may be provided for display in a given direction) and may allow intuitive reading from top to bottom to differentiate Arrangement 1 to 3 e, using upper, middle and lower bands. This solution may also be used differentiated display colors for the medals and presents congestion benefits in terms of area and volume similar to the previous embodiment of FIG 3A; However, it may require, for efficient display, changing pads used, for example by machining are ribs for receiving the trunking, so that integration is relatively more difficult than for the previously described display solution.

One advantage of the embodiments described above for swimming, when used in conjunction with a 7 usual display panel, is that it allows the majority of spectators, not looking up or lift his head to see each swimmer to turn around and leave the water to check its ranking on the giant billboard, while simultaneously sees rankings displayed on adjacent starting blocks to competitors on the podium. This dissociation of the consultation classification information by the viewer and the competitors themselves therefore allow the viewer present on site to be preferred to the viewer, for example, where the image overlays will only communicate information ranking but not to see the reaction of the swimmers in real time.
