Colorado Time Systems

Colorado Time Systems (CTS) provides premier athletic facilities across the world with platinum quality timing, scoring and display systems.
Colorado Time Systems' concept was born in the Test & Measurement division of Hewlett-Packard (HP). HP wanted to explore opportunities in the sports timing industry and chose aquatics because it required such precise measurement. In 1972, four HP engineers spun off from HP and founded CTS. From those very specific aquatic beginnings, an extensive and multi-faced sports timing and display company was born.
Throughout the years, CTS has maintained a steadfast commitment to provide cutting edge scoring and display products for all venues. Our display portfolio includes: LED full color video displays, LED single-color animation displays, ribbon/fascia boards, sport-specific scoreboards, and portable scoreboards. CTS can provide scoring, timing, and display solutions for almost every sport.
