US OPEN USES UNISYS

By CBR Staff Writer

Oh I say! Wimbledon hasn’t gotten around to charging some computer company vast sums for the right to enhance the statistics display from championship matches in return for the right to put up the odd logo during the television coverage – and with Dan Maskell, who needs a computer? – but our impoverished cousins across the water are deprived of the wonders of the doughty Dan, and during the US Tennis Open, which runs through to the end of next week, are having to make do with best that a Unisys Corp network of workstations, processors and laser printers can come up with; B25 inquiry terminals will be located throughout the tennis complex so that officials can compile and retrieve scoring and statistical information on each match – and spectators can find out what it was they have just been watching; the pitch was inherited from Burroughs.
