Dave Crump, who supervised operations during Rio 2016, stated, "The merit of the combination board is that the information – such as times and scores – can be displayed in conjunction with the competition. The spectators can view the competition information in real time and enjoy the sport more profoundly.” Although other sporting events have generally adopted an integrated screen, it was hard to achieve this at the Olympic Games as the products assigned to each sponsor was already decided. However, through the cooperation of Panasonic, in charge of the video board, and Omega, in charge of the score board, the delivery of a combination board to Rio 2016 was made possible. Roughly one-third of venues installed this integrated screen, which transcended each sponsor’s area of coverage. The screens transmitted a new appeal of sports, and the venues were wrapped in unprecedented enthusiasm.
