Heats Currently on the Floor, those On Deck, Call-Backs, and Heats coming within the next half hour, along with exact, up-to-the-minute Heat times will be projected in real time on a large screen in the Ballroom, continuously during the entire Competition! Judges will score with hand held computer pads, so that results will be available instantaneously. Competitors will also be able to use mobile phones, from wherever they are, to see the Current Event, What’s On Deck, their own Heat List, and Posted Marks available at all times during the day of the Competition. These are just a few of the benefits of the O2cm Technology.
