FinishLynx photo-finish cameras integrate seamlessly with RFID chips and video cameras to create a complete Cross Country timing system that improves the speed and accuracy of meet results. Combine photo-finish, video and RFID into a single interface to have the best possible timing solution for every race.

The finish line at a cross country meet can be a confusing place with multiple finishers crossing at the same time. Athletes can finish fractions of a second apart and accurate team scores often depend on individual results. This makes fast and accurate identification crucial for any Cross Country meet.

Fundraise with FinishLynx

Parents and coaches alike know the importance of trophies and photos in youth sports to celebrate athletes’ personal achievements. Luckily, anyone who owns a FinishLynx system already has the ability to capture and preserve these memories which can also bring in some revenue for the sports program.

  • Sell exciting finish line images to proud parents and athletes
  • Print photo-finish images onto t-shirts for a unique souvenir
  • Get local sponsorships from area businesses to help offset some costs

Athletic programs across the country are constantly in need of additional funding. And with a combination of local sponsorships and/or selling photo-finish images to families, the additional revenue can really add to a track program’s bottom line. Even if you’re a small high school, you could be generating hundreds or even thousands of dollars in revenue by selling your photo-finish and/or IdentiLynx images at meets.

“When you go and time a meet, you’re 95% of the way to being able to sell pictures.”
