Scoreboard extravaganza: Lausanne 1989

Well, why not put another scoreboard in French while I am at it? Swiss television (or rather the French speaking division of Swiss television) played host after contributing the winning entry the year before.

I must add that when it comes to graphic presentation, the Lausanne contest stands out as one of my all time favourites. The postcards and the banners presenting each entry float in and out of the picture very neatly and all look very elegant and stylish.

Oddly enough, none of the graphics used in the rest of the show are reflected on the scoreboard. Yet, that looks pretty stylish as well.

I like the choice of colours, the big flags and the fact that also this version of scoreboard can show individual placings for each country (even if that function is only used twice during the entire voting sequence).

This is only the second scoreboard ever to be computer made and not "physical". In other words almost shockingly modern back in the day.

As a member of Team Finland, it is also easy to love a leader board that looks like this. A rare and welcome sight for sore eyes.
