Shootouts, More Clocks, More Sports! Long-Awaited SuiteCG Update is HERE!

It’s been a very long time coming but the wait is over and we’re excited to announce an update for SuiteCG. There is no video tutorial to go along with this update but stay tuned for future announcements with video tutorials on the various new features.

As a general overview, this new update includes new features for shootouts, such as in soccer, hockey, and lacrosse (LAX support in development). Also included are some sort/filter features when selecting players for lower thirds, etc…

Easy to use Shootout controls allow for goal, miss, and auto calculation of which team wins the shootout

But the biggest update, which we took our time to carefully build, test, revise, re-test, etc… to ensure it works to expectations, is the inclusion of multiple clocks. First and foremost, this benefits games like hockey and lacrosse where penalty clocks are an important piece of the scorebug. Penalty clocks will sync with the game clock to start/stop and add/subtract time with the game clock. No need to start/stop/edit multiple clocks if the operator was too slow to stop the game clock! And when it comes to the free hockey graphics package, whether you have a single penalty clock or penalties for each team, or penalties of differing lengths, the scorebug will show an individual team Powerplay, or an “On Ice” drop down, and will always show the clock that is closest to zero.

Additionally, multiple clocks have allowed us to create intermission and halftime clocks. This is only implemented in hockey intermissions at the moment, but we will be adding halftime clocks to other sports as well in the coming months. We will cover the hockey updates in a video tutorial in a later update.

Once set, a penalty clock will sync with the game clock to count down, and add/remove seconds as the game clock is adjusted. The type of penalty is also stored. Working with the optional roster/player selection feature, you can show who is in the penalty box and what penalty they are serving.

Another big update is the addition of tennis as a new sport! Support is included now but training videos will be forthcoming. We’ve made sure to provide a user interface that allows for singles and doubles, allows for tracking who is serving, who is what side of the court, advantage and tie breaker points, and tracking games, sets, and match points.

Singles, doubles, advantage points, tie breaker points… from game, set, to match, we have it all covered

In the coming months we will be providing official support for lacrosse, now that penalty clocks are completed, and will be adding support for folk-style wrestling, which is already in the testing stage. Other features are in the works as well. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we worked on this big update in-between family, full-time jobs, and the ongoing disruptions to general life with the pandemic for the last two years. We are excited to get this release out and get moving on to the next stage of development!

The update is available now at, or from the License Manager in the SuiteCG application!

SuiteCG Adds Support for Graduation Ceremonies

The last few months have been interesting times for everyone. With all sports cancelled, many producers have shifted to offering other online services, including graduation ceremonies.

We’ve spent some time modifying MultiSport Scoreboard to meet an important need for those producers. Basic lower thirds for guest speakers is fairly easy, but managing the list of names for students as they walk the stage, either in person or virtually, is a different matter all it’s own. We’ve repurposed the Sponsor Carousel feature to meet that need, including a basic user interface for manually advancing student names or allowing it to play on a timed interval, as well as importing the student list from a CSV file all at once.

We’ve included a simple but elegant graphics package to use with our built-in NDI CG, and as always, the data fields are exported to XML or CSV to use with third-party systems.

We see potential for this interface in more traditional podcasts and shows with guests as well.

Version 0.6.72 is now available to download for free evaluation or from the SuiteCG License Manager.

Hockey Support Now Available in SuiteCG MultiSport Scoreboard

SuiteCG is excited to announce a new release that adds Hockey support for MultiSport Scoreboard. This release also updates SuiteCG to NDI 4.0.

One of the best features of hockey support is the ease at which Power Plays and Players on Ice are automatically displayed in the built-in graphics package. Power Play tabs automatically reveal and hide based on the number of players on ice for each team, meaning the operator only needs to focus on the number of players and the software handles the rest. Additionally, Delayed Penalties, Empty Net, player headshots, and players in the penalty box are easy to update and display with a few quick clicks on the touchscreen-friendly interface.

This is the first of what we plan to be a few updates for hockey. Future updates will address penalty clocks, which are not yet supported.

An informal walk-through of the Hockey user interface is provided below:

Additionally, this update includes NDI 4.0 libraries and we have changed the built-in preview monitor to be more reliable and include transparency.

This update is available through the website or through the License Manager, accessible from the SuiteCG Main Menu.

Change to Game Clock Output may Affect Users with Third-Party CGs

SuiteCG users that integrate with a third-party CG should take note that after identifying an issue where the game clock was slow to update in certain situations, we have made a permanent change to how we export the game clock data. Game clock will now always write to suitecgclock.xml or .csv, depending on your export settings for third-party CGs. Previously, the game clock only wrote to this file if the clock counted down and displayed 1/10 second intervals in the last minute of the game.

We do not expect this change to affect many customers, as most game templates already counted down and had the 1/10 second setting applied. Customers using the built in NDI graphics will see an improvement, but do not need to apply any changes to their CG Settings. CGs such as LiveText that rely on a broad “watch folder” for data updates are unaffected, however vMix customers or customers that bind game clock data though a data source management tool may need to change their data binding to the suitecgclock file.

This change has been applied to version 0.6.47, which can be downloaded through the SuiteCG License Manager page, accessible from the SuiteCG Main Menu.

Dig… Set… Kill… Volleyball Template and Graphics Package Now Available

We’ve dropped another update, this time for volleyball support. This volleyball interface and graphics package is fairly basic and not where we intend to leave it, but it’s straightforward and easy for the fast pace that comes with volleyball.

This update can be obtained through the SuiteCG License Manager screen. As always, updates can be performed within the License Manager even without a license.

Automatically Display Down and Distance in American Football Graphics Project

We’ve released a minor update that includes a new graphics project for American Football that automatically displays Down and Distance, as well as Ballspot, per the end-user’s option. For more details watch the included tutorial video.

This update is available through the License Manager screen of any existing installation of SuiteCG, regardless of the presence of a product license.

Put me in, Coach! SuiteCG 0.6.35 brings Team Rosters, Player Headshots, and More!

SuiteCG is thrilled to announce the release of version 0.6.35, which adds the long-awaited, much-anticipated, highly-deliberated Team Rosters feature! Included in this new release are the following:

  • Importing and Exporting of Team Profiles, including team rosters inside the team profile
  • Importing of team rosters from CSV and tab separated value files
  • Importing and exporting of Match Details to eliminate constantly typing broadcast team and company details with each new game
  • New user interface for American Football with streamlined controls
  • Keyer Opacity feature to blend team logos with graphics to improve chroma and luma keying on hardware switchers
  • Fixed various bugs and small user interface issues
Create rosters with biographical information, headshot, season stats, etc… Sample rosters included, with fun headshots courtesy of

Team Rosters has been planned from the beginning as a key feature of SuiteCG MultiSport Scoreboard, and we’re excited to get it out the door in time for fall sports. Player selection is a breeze. With three clicks (and in about that many seconds) from the user interface you can have a player’s headshots and bio up on the screen. Click to open the roster, click to select the player from large buttons with the players name, uniform, position, a headshot, and then a click in Graphics Control to animate the headshot element.

The new user interface for American Football streamlines the user experience with improved controls, easier corrective actions for those “oops” moments.

In addition to this new release, we’ve also added new tutorial videos to the Knowledge Base, including:

  • Sessions and Templates: Team Details and Match Details which provides a detailed walk-through of creating Team Profiles and adding players to the roster
  • User Interface: American Football which gives an in-depth review of the new American Football UI, including player selections, counter and toggle images, and context values for integrating SuiteCG with third party CGs.
  • Connecting SuiteCG to Hardware Switchers via HDMI answers common questions related to integrating SuiteCG with hardware switcher that do not support NDI natively. Using Newtek’s NDI Studio Monitor and an HDMI cable, set up a computer or laptop in extended display and perform a luma or chroma key on the incoming video feed.

Player headshots are currently supported only in American Football and Baseball/Softball. Other sports will see added capabilities soon.
