SOFTWARE AND SETUP GUIDE NOW AVAILABLE

StatBroadcast has released its StatBroadcast Listener software, which is designed to work specifically with NCAA LiveStats to facilitate media and live stats through the StatBroadcast platform.

To download the software and access the setup guide, please visit http://software.statbroadcast.com (requires log in).

Please note we anticipate potential critical updates to Listener as Genius finalizes the season release of its NCAA LiveStats software. Please keep an eye out for important updates in the software and install when prompted in the software as they become available.

Listener is compatible with StatBroadcast's Scoreboard Bridge software.

Listener can be used simultaneously with Genius Sports' NCAA LiveStats In-Arena Utility for generating local XML files.


For schools that will require a local XML file :

Genius Sports has released the In-Arena Utility to facilitate with this. It will be available for a limited time for the current academic year as well as 2019-2020. To download and install the utility as well as access setup guides, please visit http://www.ncaamanager.com

Please note, StatBroadcast cannot provide direct support for working with the NCAA LiveStats software beyond its direct interaction with StatBroadcast. The NCAA has requested all support requests for the software, including setup and use of the In-Arena Utility, be forwarded directly to their team from Genius tasked to handle this.


Introduction

This past May, the NCAA officially announced that it has launched a new stats initiative with a software developer based in London UK, to develop new statistics tracking software for its membership. Use of the software will be voluntary during the basketball regular season for member institutions.
