scrutelle-TCP allows the input of judges marks using tablets and was first released in 2013 - details

However it is little used in the UK and there are a number of possible reasons for this

(1) WiFi in most competition venues is not sufficiently reliable

(2) In many competitions, late entries are permitted, sometimes even after one or more heats have been danced. With paper input, judges can enter the numbers of any additional late entries onto the marksheet by hand (leaving the scrutineer to sort out the names when they get the opportunity!). We have yet to devise a simple and robust way of doing this with tablet input

(3) Organisers are wary of the new technology and also are unwilling to invest in the necessary hardware

scrutelle-TCP was used successfully this year at the UKDC Europeans competition - details
