The Technology Behind the U.S. Open

1 comment

When Venus Williams or Rafael Nadal hit a winner at the U.S. Open, the tennis tournament’s technology infrastructure gets into the action. The chair umpire uses a handheld device to note the winner of the point, which instantly updates scoreboards around the tennis center, across the Internet and on mobile apps. In this video, officials from IBM and the USTA providing a behind-the-scenes look at the technology supporting the U.S. Open and usopen.org. See the U.S. Open web site for more features about the IBM technology at the tournament.
