Game show solutions

by Julio Costa

We deliver stand-alone or component (computer based) systems, tailored to the exact requirements of your television game show.

Together with our partners at Go! Graphics, we provide a complete game show solution from gameplay mechanics, buzzers and scoring, to final big screen output.

The following images show some recent work:

Quiz buttons

Upon “buzz-in”, other contestants are immediately locked out. The system may be manually reset, or this may be done automatically after a presettable time. Buttons illuminate upon buzz-in, and may trigger additional lighting effects. Sound effects can be selected from the supplied library, or you may supply your own.

Screen feeds

Identify your contestants with multiple stunning podium screen feeds. Indicate their scores live, or display graphics to suit. Changing background images or colours clearly indicates a buzz-in event. We have partnered with Go! Graphics to provide hi-res big screen gameplay elements and scoreboards.

Control software

The custom software is tailored to suit your show. DMX and / or MIDI commands may be sent to trigger lighting changes. Comprehensive auditing is automatically done, and regular snapshots are saved to simplify re-takes.
