This screen allows you to pick from among the live video feeds emanating from around the USTA Tennis Center. And the feeds can be very specific: the lower-right hand window actually shows me photographing the screen with my iPad.
This handheld device is used by chair umpires at the Open to enter a game's score as each point is played. The data is beamed directly into IBM's systems and disseminated out to the scoreboards in the stadium, on the USTA Tennis Center grounds, the Web, mobile apps and video feeds. The device runs Windows Mobile 6.
IBM runs the US Open infrastructure on a private cloud that is geo-distributed across data centers in Boulder, CO; St. Louis, MO; and Raleigh, NC. This interface allows IBM personnel to monitor the resource usage at each data center, so they can redistribute the load if necessary.
